Brazilian Superliga 2017-2018

That was an officiating errors fest! I thought the first referee's errors were too glaring. Quoted from "rbdfabio" Super Copa Final - Cruzeiro vs Taubate The arena is nearly empty. http://tudotvonline.com/assistir-sportv-…-hd-2400-horas/ http://videostream.dn.ua/videopage/video…4%96f%E2%84%96f

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Valeskinha and Liu Yanan come to mind for such MBs. Why did Walewska leave in 2008? Quoted from "Sidney" Walewska is a classic MB from the 90s. She started playing professionally in 1997 when MBs still played in the background. She was called to the NT just one year after that She is a great example of how age might mean nothing (Juciely also). Brazil has had good MBs througout the past years, but Walewska could have easily played in the NT for many more years. It was her decision to leave after...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

I like watching Walewska play. I remember seeing her play in Russia several years back as a receiving MB in a few matches. She was able to hold her own. It'd be sad to see her go, but, yeah, that's life.

Maybe it's just me, but I really enjoyed watching Solé--he is just so consistent! Is Sesi still eligible to move up to the Superliga?

Thank you, thank you, Sidney! Muito obrigado! Quoted from "Sidney" Quoted from "barnabas" Incidentally, could any of you guys from Brazil recommend a website that sells and internationally ships club volleyball jerseys? :-D You'll probably find these jerseys on the websites or social medias of each club, especially the main clubs (Minas, Cruzeiro, Nestlé, Sesc...). But I know that this website also sells some stuff: https://loja.saqueviagem.com.br I'm sorry but I don't know if they ship internat...

Thank you, Saishu! BTW, who is Sada Cruzeiro's new setter? Watching William's magical sets in Sesi has lifted my spirits which was feeling a bit sad at his departure from Sada. Also, has Vissotto been away from volleyball? He looks a bit out of shape, and he seems to be half-hearted and only pretending to be trying. Or maybe it's just me. Haha!

Brazilian Superliga 2017-2018

Thank you, Sydney! All those six players comprise almost half a team already. As of this writing, I'm watching the part in the semis between Corinthians and Campinas where Serginho is so livid against one of the table officials. I don't understand what is up, but I think he's displaying so much audacity...Oop! He just got red-carded. About the player movement from one team to another, is that leveling-scoring still followed? Like each player is worth a certain number of points and each team rece...

I see a lot of players from SESI last season now on Corinthians. Are they like sister teams? I'm liking the new ball, BTW.

Watching Renan play without any knee support given his height, I can't help but be amazed. Evandro and Vissotto have never worn any knee support either, have they?

A-ha! I think I got it. Thanks very much, Mosi! Quoted from "mosi" Quoted from "barnabas" Just curious. How is -gh in "Ghaemi" pronounced? "Gh" stands for "ق" which is a Persian letter. a bit similar to "G" but just a bit. I think I can say it's very similar to "r" in French.

"Martelli" eh? That's a very interesting Italian term for outside hitters. My translator reads "hammers."

Or maybe it was Lang Ping who brought the magic back to China. Half of the 2012 Olympic team continued on to play under her. She then picked up where the previous team left off by continuously seeking out, training and adding tall young players.

What do you mean? I don't understand. Quoted from "samsara" Quoted from "barnabas" Why are we comparing Wang Yi Mei with opposite hitters? Hasn't she always been a non-receiving outside hitter in the national team? I always had the impression that Wang Yi Mei's undoing was her low stamina. I remember she made too many errors in drawn out matches. WANG Yi-mei was just a history as far as concerning the CHN NT. If there was no place for her in the NT as of four years ago after Lang Ping taking ove...

He has flunked in his pronunciation of "Araki" though. And "Ishii" and "Yurie" too. Still very forgivable. Quoted from "sitenoise" Clayton Lucas likes to call out players for admiring their last shot, which often prevents them from being ready for the next one. This tournament has been a gas for me. More games with reasonably intelligent commentary in a language I understand than the rest of my entire volleyball watching history.
