    Attending the last BayCup before the April NAC, overheard a new description of the assembled collection of fencers as a "whine of fencers".

    And a collection of referees is a "murder of referees" due to their black coats, hunched backs, and shrill squawks :p (reference to murder of crows).

    No, I think a hissy fit of coaches might be better. Or maybe a tantrum?
    How about an exhaustion of armorers?

    Hold back your groans, but clearly it’s a “pod of fencers”

    I kind of like, "a martyr of referees" better than a murder.

    I propose a slight alteration from "martyrs" to "Mordors".
