Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

well, yavor, it's hard to generalize ... i think the JPN coach (i'm assuming nakagaichi makes the decision to challenge, not blain) did make several challenges later on, but that one was particularly egregious because JPN might have won that first set had they won that challenge, and the players were calling it too. so the failure to do so was pretty bad. not that they would have won the match, but it might have gone to 5. chinese posters in the other thread seem to have a very low opinion of th...

FIVB U23 World Championship - 2017 |

samsara, no, they are not all sisters, just jineiry and brayelin (that i know of ). martinez is a very common name in latin america. i made the mistake of looking at the fivb website and of course, the DOM team listed is a wide roster, so there's only 14 players (?) in the tournament. brayelin is listed but obviously not here. this DOM coach (from BRA) needs to be disciplined. not just how ridiculous it is to scream and curse at young athletes, i doubt it's helpful to the team. i can't imagine t...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3853Q_IJAWQ watch at 27:40. ridiculous. does this man know he's talking to young women? teenagers? this coach needs to be fired. from what i can tell, he's brazilian. he needs to watch his language, and learn to talk like a decent human being.

Men's World Grand Champions Cup 2017

Quoted from "Kk15" Quoted wow. vettori got an ace in first set when he clearly foot-faulted but JPN coach didn't bother to challenge it even though players were calling out the foot-fault. Quoted from "Kk15" I was sure he did a foot fault too Anyway, I learned lately that the TV gave a very different impression: sometime I see a 'probable' touch, and then the challenge show it wasn't, other times I saw a massive fault, and at the end the foot only slightly touched a very small portion of the li...

not following this at all, but you'd think on paper, DOM with the martinez sisters, they would be favorites for the title!

is it sort of like the hard H of english or german? ha-e-mi? clayton lucas commentary can be quite funny. in the first set of ITA x JPN, he says of giannelli, "my goodness, he looks like he's about to cry..."

Tokyo 2020 Qualification rules

kk, i was thinking about how participation in the olympics could be manipulated via the order in which these tournaments are played. so for example, n. america has 2 strong teams (USA and CAN), so let's say both teams qualify via the W q or the IC q. then NORCECA would have a 3rd slot, which would be a conceivably weaker team. but if continental tournaments are held first, and let's say USA qualifies, then MEX or CUB would have to play against other continents, rather than just grabbing a spot b...

Tokyo 2020 Qualification rules

guys, please let's not have this old argument again. because it's the olympics (as well as any world tournaments like WC or WCh), we have to have participation by ALL continents, so that's why there's a slot for each continent. but other than that, it'd only be fair to have the best teams as jetmasters and fabio summarized above. the biggest problem is when FIVB does stupid crap like it did for rio. it's ridiculous that NORCECA ended up with 4 slots (CUB? MEX?) by manipulating the qualifying sys...

Tokyo 2020 Qualification rules

is there a reason why the continental Q are last? i mean, how would teams decide to participate in the world qualifying... if a team wins a continental spot, then they won't have to go to a world Q tournament... AUS is not in oceania, they play in asia. so if there's a spot for oceania, it'd be NZL or TGA... !

in the first set of BRA x FRA, what was FRA players complaining to the referee about? right at the beginning of the match... and what's up with all the blondies? kind of weird to see all three lyneel, clevenot and tillie playing at the same time...

Quoted from "Umu11" Quoted from "Rains_of_Castamere" What a terrible way to end the NT season for Gabi.... https://www.volleyball.it/brasile-gabi-s…a-al-ginocchio/ Hope she can make it in time for World Championship without reinjury and recover back to her old self.
