Let me get this started and then I'll be back with some stats.
The problem with the start of Set 5
Shoji turned in the lineup card. the wrong player went out on the court. It wasn't caught
It is the ref's responsibility to check the lineup before he blows the whistle. I couldn't hear it but it sounded like Shoji comment to the ref was that the official scorer signed off on the lineup that was on the court so that the point should count (which was a kill by Hartong) and play continue.
Shoji told me he takes the responsibility for what happened. that ultimately it is on him. but he does believe it was the wrong call.
