Haha.  This is how rumors get started.  :-)

If you re-read Joe's remarks again, you'll see that these are the
items that NF ___still___ needs to change to come in line with USAV
and FIVB.  Under NFSHSA (Federation) you can't contact the ball below
the waist, nor can you have multiple contacts on the first hit unless
the ball is hard-driven.

As for the NAGWS, your referee was correct.  Intentional foot contact
is illegal under NAGWS 1997-98 rules.  This is a departure from USAV
and FIVB rules.
