  • What is it about paintball and dirtbags? 0 CommentsPosted by on August 14, 2014 under Dirt, Industry News, Top Story
    The following is an editorial, expressing the opinions of  Dale Ford and him alone.  The views expressed here don't necessarily reflect the views and opinions of The Ford Report, it's advertisers or it's staff.    I swear.   Slap me on the butt and call me Suzy, but it sure seems like paintball is a magnet for scumbags.

  • What if? 0 CommentsPosted by on March 19, 2014 under Dirt, News, Scenario Coverage, Top Story
    So everyone has seemed to enjoy my "This is why we can't have nice things" editorials.   However, I'm trying mightily to stick to my own mantra about offering a solution if I editorialize about it, which is a nice way of saying 'complaining'. This time I'm asking a question.  Over the years, scenario paintball  has changed significantly, with new producers, new equipment and an influx of pl... more.
  • Why We Can’t Have Nice Things, Part 3 0 CommentsPosted by on March 5, 2014 under Dirt, Industry News, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    Editor's Note:  This piece wasn't written by me, but rather a source who prefers to remain anonymous.  Given the state of the economy and it's effect on paintball, I found the author's points to be especially relevant.  I've known Rick Chard for years, and while I wouldn't say we're close friends, I do respect what he's trying to do with Paintball Extravaganza.  Hopefully he'll take this as co... more.

  • Gun Hate 0 CommentsPosted by on August 16, 2013 under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    This morning I 'leaked' some pictures of a new gun coming from Alien Paintball.  The resulting conversation on Facebook got me to thinking about some of the relationships within the industry, and how they contrast with the behavior of the paste eating fanboys on FB, various forums, etc.  I don't have permission from anyone I mentioned in this editorial to talk about the reality of their friendsh... more.

  • The most dangerous people in paintball 0 CommentsPosted by on August 13, 2013 under Dirt, News, Scenario Coverage, The Ford Report, Top Story
    One of the best parts of being muckraking press scum is that when I'm out on the field taking photos, I get to see all of the action, rather than just the side I'm on while playing. Being able to walk the field and watch a game unfold is one of my guilty pleasures, and I'm not alone in this indulgence.   The downside is that you also see (and usually photograph) bad behavior on and off ... more.

    I'm often mistaken for being English, due in part to my style of writing and the inexplicable popularity The Ford Report has in the UK and mainland Europe. So much so that earlier this year I was contacted by an English company wanting to send me product to review...the lady I was talking to was surprised to find out that I'm actually American, living in South Georgia.   While America i... more.
  • Called Out 0 CommentsPosted by on June 28, 2013 under Dirt, Industry News, News, Scenario Coverage, The Ford Report
    One of the things I've done over the years as a writer/photographer is observe how behaviors in paintball translate over to 'real' life and vice/versa.   One of the more odious things I've noticed coming about recently is the practice of 'Trolling', by which I mean someone who has a differing opinion from you refuses to have a civilized debate, instead resorting to outright lies, person... more.
  • This is why we can’t have nice things, part 2 0 CommentsPosted by on June 24, 2013 under Dirt, News, Scenario Coverage, The Ford Report, Top Story
    This past weekend an editorial went up on this site that has set my phone, email and FB on fire, with people contacting me to give their thanks and support for publishing it. Some thought I actually wrote it, but I did not. I thought I made that clear when I published it, but for the record “Not Everyone Can Be a General” was written by Ford Report writer Kelly Chavers Brennan.   Lo... more.
  • Not Everyone Can Be A General…. 1 CommentsPosted by on June 22, 2013 under Dirt, News, Scenario Coverage, The Ford Report, Top Story
    Editor's Note:  Checking in this weekend from Battlegroundz Paintball is The Ford Report writer Kelly Chavers Brennan, commenting on what it takes to be the commander of a side at a scenario game, and it would appear that some in the current crop of 'E-Celebs' are lacking in that department.  Read on for Ms. Brennan's thoughts on the matter.  Not everyone is cut out to General game. Believe... more.
