Officials with Terrible Attitudes — Part II
By Peter Osborne
April 11th, 2012

In Part I, Peter described his decision to quit high school volleyball officiating. He had had enough of whining coaches, players with attitude, and bastardized Federation volleyball. He has a bad attitude, but his assignor still wants him to officiate. What will happen on the court? For that you must go inside.
Officials with Terrible Attitudes — Part I
By Peter Osborne
April 4th, 2012

Our resident baseball curmudgeon steps into the realm of volleyball officiating today. Actually, this article is generalized for all officiating and has some special tidbits for those unappreciated saints of officiating — assignors. Coaches and players may want to read this piece as well. You may recognize this official as a person to stay away from.

My wife, who is the final arbiter around the office, wanted that sentence changed so it was grammatically correct: "You may recognize this official as a person from whom you want to stay away." I refused: Hey, the editor has to draw the line sometimes.

Jim Dandy to the Rescue
I am born
By Carl Childress
September 28th, 2011

I've worked baseball since 1954. Off and on, I did about 25 years of basketball, back when I weighed about 90 pounds less than I do now. When I coached football, officials didn't show up for a game, and the opposing coach talked me into reffing the game. My assistant coach (the quarterback) handled the team except during halftime, and we played. We lost! I remember very little except that I know I couldn't figure out where to spot the ball on the hash marks.

But, as you know from the label above, this article is about (gasp!) volleyball.  Click the title to read all about it.
