I commented that with 6 matches going on in tennis, it would require an additional 30 line judges to call every line where volleyball only has 2. He thought about it and then said, "yea, we are never going to pay 30 officials."
Actually you could get away with 6-12 more officials, by having them calling the far sideline only, the chair can usually see the rest of the lines pretty good.
