2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

USA has to pay for matches now. Subscription service is through Flovolleyball and they had just signed a 3 year deal for VNL. At least with NBC some matches were broadcast on cable. Now no cable. FIVB is shooting them selves in the foot in their biggest sponsor markets.

2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League

On talent alone the USA team is already top 5-6 range. This is due to the volume of players in college who continue to play professionally. If people were complaining about last season's WGP finish then they have issues as USA Volleyball always looks at a four year cycle. If Foluke doesn't get an injury in the semifinal in 2016, USA probably gets to the gold medal match against China. Logan Tom had been on the national team for so long, to believe that she would have been a help in 2014 or 16 wo...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

With only one foreign player per roster it is a waste of money for a foreign libero no matter how good they are. A middle blocker or opposite provide a much better return than a libero. Remember teams can choose not to serve to the libero.

Kotoe Inoue, the JT libero will also leave JT now. JT will have a big hole to fill with Okumura leaving as well. Is it the coach or wanting to play in a tougher league for 2020 Olympics?

Japanese NT 2018

Koga had a really bad 2016 season and Manabe left her home for the Rio games. Arita Sato was dropped from the national team by Nakada this year and with Hitachi playing so badly this year, it really changed her thoughts about the team and possibly the sport. With her former teammates Saori Kimura and Sakoda seemingly enjoying life off the court, Arisa might want some time off.

Chinese Male Superleague 2017/2018 [Nov.5 - Apr.XX]

Michal Kubiak appears to be loaned to Beijing for the Final. I've looked on the V.League's page and the Panasonic Panthers page and he is still on those pages.

Use the term kill percentage for the stats you are showing. Take out the hitting errors in the column next to kills and then divide by total swings for hitting percentage. Imamura basically was interchangeable for Nomoto. If you put her on a team like Hitachi, I don’t think her numbers would be as good. Just my opinion. She is essentially playing with the national team on Hisamitsu. Reception numbers are low but I think that she is playing as opposite/passer. Hisamitsu can swap positions between...

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "brahmin" Ohbayashi was on the right, but it is Tominaga Cool! Thanks She must have been a special guest for the Final. Leaves me in the dark as to who was commentating all season with Ohbayashi. Whomever it was really added to my enjoyment of the games. Ohbayashi usually only gets called up for the bigger tournaments. This match was on NHK and not the normal broadcast channel Gaora (Cable) and DAZN (onlline only).

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

Quoted from "sitenoise" These are the two women who have brought me much joy in commentating the V.League matches. The woman on the right is, I believe, Motoko Obayashi. The woman on the left looks a bit like Koyomi Tominaga (but it's not). Ohbayashi was on the right, but it is Tominaga. I saw the note on the video in Japanese. Ohbayashi is basically the women’s voice of Japanese volleyball any time anywhere. I have not seen a reason for Inoue being replaced on the all-star team.

Japan - V.Premier League 2017-2018

There are two games for each sex in the All-Star Games. One is the Premier League (top level) and then one for the Challenge League I & II (second and third divisions). With Miyashita's team in the second division, that is why her picture was put on the webpage. Miyashita for the women actually had the highest votes in all divisions, while Kurihara was top in the women's Premier League. I wrote the article about the top division because if people are following the lower divisions outside of Japa...

Ebata had an injury that kept her out of 2014. He wanted her but she wasn’t physically up to it. Since then she’s been on the outside looking in. As an opposite, she really really never passed in Japan. In France, the shifted to an outside hitter with passing, but usually was not a starter.

Ohtake had a knee injury as has been working her way back from that. Miyashita cried tears last year as the Seagulls dropped to the second level. Team won the second level and will be in the new version of the V. league top level. Horikawa is left handed and that will keep her on the squad or at least the large roster. Sakoda retired last year and has already started broadcasting high school matches. Kurogo is expected to be the next big star, but still has a ways to go. Might get some time in V...

Opening day, NEC scored 9 points in a set against Hisamitsu. Hisamitsu was locked in as soon as it started. 3 at first TTO, 2 more at second TTO and 4 more by 25. JT have to turn it around.

Quoted from "sitenoise" Quoted from "Canter" i know you are new to the japanese league but...Hisamitsu vs.Toyota is going to be played over best of 3 ? No, and this why I think the notion of "Final 3" is silly and confusing--at least for this american who's never experienced a Round Robin sports tournament before trying to understand volleyball, but I digress. Hisamitsu will play TWO matches against Toyota this weekend. Only MATCH wins count. So WTF if Hisamitsu wins one and Toyota wins one? We...
