Ollie Lang vs Frank Cornell at NPPL Chicago
The "controversy" on the net right now is the Ollie Lang vs Frank Cornell 'incident' at NPPL Chicago. This amateur video came up this morning on the net and ProPaintball. Can't really see much except for the trade off that happened and Frank was called 'out' and Ollie called 'safe'. Ollie played on and wrapped up the game for Dynasty.
The ref just has to get in the way of what would have been a front cover photo of the 'headbutt'.
What happened afterwards was the 'head butt' of goggles at the Avalanche flag station when Ollie went to grab the flag. And thus everyone has their opinion on it.
Trust the guys at PBFashion to come up with a real good close up of the whole bunkering move in this video.
They slowed down Frank's run down on Ollie and at .37 you can see that it is very close but Frank does get a hit on Ollie's leg or pack first- there is a yellow splash just before Ollie puts a couple on Frank's belly.
Frank Starts his run - there is a definite hit on Ollie's pack or back - there is splash of paint at the bottom of the picture. At the top of the picture in the red circle Frank is still clean.
FACT Frank got Ollie first.
A split second later Ollie pulls and this is the first of three hits on Frank's belly in the red circle
It should have been a trade off. The refs got it wrong this time and I cant really blame them because it was so close. That's why I guess they rather pull both - just to be sure.
