Was it Rigged?
We all agree that the ref might have been paid off. It doesn’t make sense that a final game call decision would be turned over at the end of the game by the same ref who made questionable calls all day long.
This is the most cotroversial ending in a Winner takes all trip to Miami Beach Florida to represent Arizona Volleyball for the chance to win $16,000. Herold Johnson the team captian discusses the outcome with the Beach Ref as she contemplates overturning over the game winning call to force the teams to redo the point.
Tim Higgins and Blake Kuchar run into eachother which caused the Ref to assume that that the set was going to be a double. With the great skillset of Tim Higgins the volleyball still came out of his hands motionless and with perfect exactness, even after the collision. In many cases the ref would have to stick to her call, but this game was too close and too even to call it on an erronious decision.
The decision was a redo. Both teams completely off the court, had to step back on in another attempt to seal their fate. Even with this messed up ending the original champions go on to seal the deal for the sencond time. Congrats go out to the mentally strong 2x winners Harold Johnson, Tyson Crandell, Jessica Elley and Leilani Pachecho!

LOCAL LINE JUDGE CAUGHT RED HANDED
Arizona Line Judge is caught moving the line during one of the most contraversial matches ever. 38yr old Veteran Line Judge (Name not to be exposed) was caught moving lines to cover a bad call. After a huge block thrown up by Brian S. of AJ AZ., the ball sails out!………OR DID IT? The ground was dry and the sand was drier. The ball left a faint mark as the line judge came in. And instead of conversing with the ref, the Line Judge decides to move the line over an inch and calls it out. This act is caught on film by an amature sports photographer which happened to catch this perpatraitor red handed. Emotions from both teams ran at an all time high as the call is no longer the issue! The organization of line judges are now under review for their tactics and policies. Are these practices and techniques being used by line judges around the world in efforts to rig the games? Who is really behind this? In boxing, fights have been known to be rigged. Speculation has also driven concerns in other sports like Football, Soccer, Baseball, and many more. Who stands to gain from a line call? Maybe its the Line Judges placing bets on a game they are officiating in. Who knows?! One thing is for darn sure, DONT LET ANYONE NEAR YOUR LINES!
Thursday night draws in Zero, 0, Nil, Niet, Nada for the first time in 3 months when all volleyball players cancelled on what would have been the best thursday volleyball this world would have seen on a thursday. The sand did not stir one little bit. The are did not whirl. The sand remained in its perfectly groomed positon. This is the sound and sight of volleyball dooms day. Players like Karch and Sinjin warned about days like these.
Lets not let this happen again. Its Volleyball or Bust!!!!!
