So you're telling me I have to go to the Olympics board to discuss The Men's National Team? A board where there will probably be way more discussion of the women's team and other sports? No thank you. USA Men's National Team volleyball falls into the category of men's volleyball, so it should be accurate to discuss it under either forum. The Olympic board will get flooded with way too much non-Men's National Team talk. Why not just let us have our men's forum and discuss ALL men's volleyball within it?
I know how challenging it can be to start a new thread on a message board. I'm confident you can figure it out.

And most of these comments are coming from people who post on the women's board. My point exactly. Lighten up guys. I'm just voicing my opinion that it's silly to post about World League in one forum and the Olympic tournament in another, when the same team is playing at each tournament.
volleyballhawk, you raise a very valid concern. I however encourage you to consider this an opportunity, rather than a problem, to help raise the popularity of men's volleyball. There will be a considerable amount of traffic to the Olympics forum from around the world (as there was for the Beijing Olympics). The exposure has the potential to help reel in more interest for the discussion on the men's forum.
