Brazilian League 2017/2018

i don't need to tell anyone what my professional background is, but let's just say i know more about transgender persons than the average citizen. it is not true that this matter was settled by IOC, fivb, or IAAF or whatever. it was not settled at all. look at the semenya affair (who is an intersex athlete not transgender, but similar issues apply). she was allowed to compete initially with almost no restrictions because there were no protocols as to how to deal with an athlete like her. she won...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

Quoted from "USAvolleyfan" I don't know why players and spectators think they can express their opinion on whether Tiffany SHOULD or SHOULDN'T be allowed to play. There are people, scientists, doctors, whose JOB is to decide that.. It doesn't matter how many times she says 'with all respect' to me this is disrespectful.. It's disrespectful to the scientists who work on that subject, to Tiffany, to any transgender athlete, and person.. really? you don't think players or spectators can have an op...

Spain - Superliga 2017/2018

i watched a little of the friendly matches between ESP and CMR. manzano was a new player to me and she was indeed very impressive, very explosive and jumps a lot. whatever happened to another young spanish, escamilla?

Brazilian League 2017/2018

agguerro, certainly people, specially the women athletes involved, are entitled to question the fairness of competing against athletes that might have an unfair advantage. and tiffany, if anything, is much taller than the average female volleyball player. and look at the situation in the women's 800 m in track & field (athletics), which is certainly not satisfactory for the athletes involved, when quite a few (maybe 3 or more) intersexed athletes are competing and winning gold medals -- even tho...

Brazilian League 2017/2018

surprised to hear that sheilla is so ignorant. she used to go out with mari steinbrecher so she should know better. i think the IOC/international standards are that the TG athlete must have had cross-gender surgery, have been undergoing hormonal therapy for a few years, and that her testosterone levels are controlled at a certain level. i assume she’s within those parameters and thus cleared to compete as a woman. the thing is, is she any stronger or faster than other women of her height? does s...

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

haven’t watched the match but i know sanchez hits high balls from 2, so maybe that’s why you think she played as OPP. many cuban MBs used to hit high balls from 3...

how tall is abreu? from photos, she looks like she's definitely much taller and bigger than the other players. also it seems from the internet, that she played in men's teams (in mexico?) while transitioning, which cannot have been easy for her...

2017 / 2018 Transfer News

sorry for the OT, guys, but please, read some more or do some research, semenya (and some of the other competitors in the women’s 800 in rio) are not biological women. on the contrary... and they’re not transgender. the more correct term is probably intersexed or intersex. maybe we need a different thread for this.

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

well, maybe it's not a conspiracy, but the ranking system being so stupid put ARG ranked too high (ahead of PUR, AZE, THA, TUR, GER and BUL), and wow... coincidence, it fell into the host's group! wow, how convenient. that's why that group is so skewed. but then JPN has had luck in the last 2 olympics, in both times landing in the easiest and most ridiculous group. in london, all it had to do was beat ALG and GBR (!) to get to the QFs, and in rio, they again only had to beat ARG and CMR to advan...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

Quoted from "rbdfabio" And there `s a problem that can occur in the 3rd round as well with the 3 teams. For example in 2014 the 2 groups were Italy/USA/Russia and on the other Brazil/China/Dominican Republic. Brazil defeated China in 3-0, Brazil 3 points and China 0. China defeated Dominican Republic in 3-2, which means China got 2 points and D.Rep 1. The final game Brazil defeated R.Republic in 3-0. Final standing Brazil 6 points, China 2 and D. Republic eliminated with 1 point. For Brazil the...

2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

how is ARG ranked higher than THA, PUR, AZE, BUL? what a joke. that's why pool A is so easy for the hosts. how convenient... i don't think AZE will play as well as playing at home. even at home, they totally sucked in the semis and bronze medal match. i would not like to see a round of 16 (like fifa) but i also think this 3rd round is totally unnecessary and stupid. fivb has the worst ideas, like this and pools of 3 teams. canter, CUB is about 3rd-level these days, they played in the GP group 3 ...

Cuban NT 2017

what's the current situation with CUB volleyball? i heard they are now allowing players to go abroad and play without having to defect. i heard vargas, among others, played abroad professionally. are there any upcoming competitions for them in 2018? it's too bad they are not in the WGP.

Turkey- VVSL-Vestel Venus Women's League 2017/2018

that was a stupid red card by salas, she makes a stupid mistake and then pulls the net down. earlier, ramirez got a yellow for complaining too much... actually i'm impressed after all these years that daymi can still kill the ball like that. i don't understand why the coach doesn't have daymi passing the ball more and taking some of the burden off salas, it's not like daymi is getting a ton of sets... but considering how old ramirez is and that she's about bosetti's height, it's impressive she c...
