I thought volleyball-folk were a kinder, gentler lot.

The original poster was just voicing an opinion about their experience
with NFSHSA volleyball officials.  Perhaps the training of those
officials is vastly inferior to USAV official training in their area.

Whatever the comments are (even thought-provoking musings such as
"SHUT THE HELL UP!"), they are welcome here as far as I'm concerned.
