Let the Master Baiters Be Who They Are

master_baiters_catch_more_fish_t_shirt-p235643573184809689yii5_400For the longest time I didn’t know that netball was a sport, I thought it was just a weird New Zealand and Australian way of saying volleyball, I was wrong, it’s a real sport! One I find bizarre and don’t totally get, but still, a sport.

While attending the Sydney World Masters Games┬átournament in western Australia, the women’s netball team out of Greymouth, New Zealand were forced to change their name by tournament officials who were concerned about a “possible double-meaning.”

The Master Baiters whose name refers solely to the practice of Whitebaiting — the act of catching White Bait, a herring-like fish instead were forced to change their name to the Master Netters.

Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. I can’t believe the organizers thought that the Master Baiters had some double-entendre, can’t some women refer to catching fish without getting accused of having sex on their brains! It’s just WRONG!
