Oh my. Did anyone think of recreational volleyball here?
This could be nightmarish as a player dealing with
recreational/inexperienced referees who don't check the readiness of
the players before beckoning for service. With this change, a player
has no recourse with an official with a quick whistle. A hasty or
errant serve could easily result.
I wonder why this option was taken versus a single STE per term of
service (like the current outdoor rule which prevents abuse, but still
allows a player a chance against an inexperienced official). What was
behind this change?
