annoying volleyball

i was playing volleyball last night on my tuesday night team and after our games, i was subbing for another team. right before we started to play, the opposing team complained to the ref about me saying that i was not part of the team. the ref asked the captain and our captain said that i wasn’t part of the roster. now, mind you, this is during normal season play.

so anyway, the ref says that the rules state that i am not elligible to play because the other team complained. he gave our captain the option to either forfeit our matches and play with me for fun or to let me go. i told the captain that i’d go and it’d be fine, but he decided that it would be more fun to play with six and forfeit than to play with five.

i was really surprised that he chose to do that, but that was nice. we proceeded to win both games and have a tremendous amount of fun. i blocked a few people and got in a few good hits. all in all a good night of volleyball. this particular league is full of teams that are poor sports and overly competitive for my tastes, though. there are no new friendships that i’ve made in this league, and i find that kind of sad.

  1. That league sounds kind of tame. I’ve played competetively for 14 years, and I’ve seen much worse. We had the sub situation once this season, and the “sub” was ran out of the gym! Also, my dad (who plays on my team) had a real doozy of a yelling match with an opposing lady over the ball we used. Consider yourself lucky you don’t play in our league!! ha ha Good luck…and have fun!!

  2. well, i think the thing that surprises me most about this is that this league is supposed to be a recreational league. it is the lowest level of play and it is supposed to be just for fun. i can understand if we were talking about A-level play, but come on, we’re supposed to just have fun! it’s not even a playoff situation.
