PSP Introduces New Pro Field “Fort” Penalty Box (Video)
- Updated: June 20, 2013 at 10:49 PM
PSP has made a partially controversial change due to take effect tomorrow morning at the Chicago Open event. In place of the old-school style penalty boxes, which allowed people to see through the box; the league has decided to revert to inflated, bunker style penalty boxes for all Professional Division matches (Champions and Challengers). At first glance, it looks like the fort your inner-child always dreamed of, but these new boxes serve a much higher purpose.
Previously, players who received penalties had the ability to see whether anyone was shooting at them before they exited the box to continue play. This was more so an advantage towards opposing players that had a visible lane toward the penalty box, allowing them to easily shoot the player exiting. The new penalty box is built to shield the cheater from seeing what’s going on and block the opposing players vision on what way the player in the penalty box is heading. The new “Fort Box” has two separate exits, which definitely makes for a more exciting game during penalty points.
So far, this new penalty box has received mixed reviews from professional teams and coaches, some of which were not aware of the change. We look forward to seeing how players will adjust to this new addition.
