European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Rouzier is such a strange player. He clearly has the technique and often reduces the power in favour of accuracy or better placement, but very often he looks as if he closes his eyes and just smacks the ball hoping he'll get away with it... and in most cases he does. Especially against triple blocks. He almost never has clear kills (even vs a single block) but he uses the block extremely effectively. I agree 100% about Tillie. I didn't like him at first but he is a foundational piece for the tea...

European Championships 2015 - hosts Italy and Bulgaria

Thankfully volleyball logic prevailed. If Bulgaria had won 3-0, we could've had the weakest Euro champion ever (although great kudos to Slovenia for what they did so far). I haven't seen France playing that badly as they did in the first 2 sets and a half for more than a year. But as always, BG are kings in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Afterwards, France were calm and composed (even during 1-4 in the 5th set) and did what they should've done in 3 sets.

Syrian refugees.

Quoted from "Canter" i have an opinion on agnostics (i think so at least)..but i cant help myself asking this : whats your practical approach in life towards religion etc ? are you practically an atheist/disbeliever or what ? To answer your question: Antitheists reject religions and reject the possibility of the existence of God (in philosophical sense). Agnostics reject religions but do not reject the possibility of the existence of God (in philosophical sense). In other words my common sense ...

Syrian refugees.

Quoted from "majka.antosik" Quoted Have you been to Syria to talk like that? Have you seen pictures of the place? These people are continuosly bombed by their government, ISIS and other rebels for years now I haven't been in Syria, I have friends from Syria and I know what I'm talking about. I agree that we should help refugees, it doesn't change the fact that at least half of these people are NOT from Syria, but from another (poor) countries and they are using the opportunity and Merkel's comp...

Syrian refugees.

Quoted from "Canter" Quoted from "triglav_kran" Wow, a lot of xenophobia in here... Does it matter if one is muslim, catholic, protestant or atheist? These people are torn by war and risking their own lives and the lives of their families they came to Europe to seek safety and a better life. ISIS have their own problems in the Middle East and I doubt sending agents all around Europe is high on their agenda now. Plus, those that come to Europe are still a minority - there are millions already in...

Syrian refugees.

Quoted from "majka.antosik" Quoted from "informer" The scariest is in all films this people are mostly strong, young men. it's not only on the pictures. According to Eurostat 70-80% of these people are men under 40. Women and children are left behind on the war (just joking, everybody sane knows that huge majority of these people hasn't even seen a war) Have you been to Syria to talk like that? Have you seen pictures of the place? These people are continuosly bombed by their government, ISIS an...

2015 FIVB World League

Quoted from "laikon" Quoted from "bella" Quoted from "laikon" Quoted from "bella" I can't totally understand these awards, Holt wasn't outstanding as well as Zatorski. Just check the statistics and you will understand. Grebennikov: digs 40 per 16 sets = 2.5 dig per set, reception: 35.59% Zatorski: digs 40 per 17 sets = 2.35 dig per set, reception: 58% Can you see the difference now? Yup, I see. But we discussed many times, also here on this forum, that overall impression about the player someti...

2015 FIVB World League

Quoted from "Matthias" Deserved win for France. But I hope Ngapeth won't be MVP, except for the serves in 3rd set he didn't play well today and it would make his ego explode even more, already now he's probably the biggest narcisst in volleyball. I don't quite agree. First, if not him, there's no one else who can win it. Possibly Grebennikov but they rarely give it to liberos. He was not exceptional today but he did his share. He was huge yesterday when he had to cover for Tillie's absense. He ...

Serbia has awful setters and that will make the difference. Their other players are not at the same level as yesterday as well.

2015 FIVB World League

Earvin is a great player!!! So much skill. Still, France should thank Kurek. And I know I'm moaning all day but the challenge system is a load of crap! Three wrong challenges per match and then you won't see every match point being challenged. Takes all the emotion from winning away. Imagine if Poland had won the challenge, then the emotionally exhausted French had to start playing a game they thought they already won...

Again, two useless challenges by the French. Edit: There you go! Calling two hopeless challenges and not being able to challenge a wrong call on a match point Edit 2: Still won it. Deservedly.

2015 FIVB World League

The net touch was not clear at all. There could've been one, but it was a very very close call even after it being reviewed. And by the way, I don't like the challenge system. Coaches are challenging every second point, it takes 1 minute to review it and the game flow is being interrupted massively. I think it's best if teams have the right of 3 wrong challenges per match or 1 per set.

2015 FIVB World League

WHAT A MATCH!!! Yanks started the match rather neglectful and I considered them buried after the middle of the third set. Then the Serbs lost focus, made more errors from serve and set and let the US back into the match. The net touch challenge at the tiebreak was controversial. Sander was poor both yesterday and today. Anderson, although dominant all tournament made some few but key errors. Serbs have world-class players on all positions besides setter and libero. They were exposed again today ...
