Whistleman, I totally understand how you feel. I have been is similar situations where a rule would end a match in a blowout situation and wanted some way for the players to play out the rest of the match. Let me just say from experience, you have to make the correct call and enforce it as such. I had a match where one team was winning by 9 and was receiving match point. I allowed an illegal contact (lift) go on the team that was behind. Next thing I know, the team that was behind wins the game. That team was so bad I didn't think it would matter but it did and we had to go to a third game. What I learned was I have to call what I see and enforce the rules to the best of my ability because if I don't, I am giving one team an advantage that could end up costing the other team the match.
