"Kill" Term in Volleyball

Volleyball is very popular in America. Some have criticized the violent nature of the volleyball term referring to a great play as a “Kill.” Do you find the term offensive? Discuss a new term for the VB play.


I do not find this offensive. I think this because it is not actually implying to "kill", it is just a term people have always used. They call it this because it is a really hard hit, and it should not be offensive to people if it is not actually implying anything bad. If there had to be a new term for it, I would call it a ground smacker because it hits the ground really hard.
