Can someone please send Lipe back home? His face is so effing annoying and his attitude on court is disgusting. This Brazilian team is killing the vibe. I tried so hard to like them but them seniors are a bunch of a*holes. Douglas and the libero are the only ones I tolerate and Isaac. And wtf is Evandro doing there? Isn't he like 40 or something? I thought Lipe is retiring. Maybe Lucarelli's absence made the coach call him back. Ugh.
And Bruno has had enough, I guess.
Lipe unfortunately is seen as a hero among (mostly casual) fans due to his block against Zaytsev that gave Brazil the gold in Rio, but yes, he is a horrible human being and should be miles away from court. I could at least tolerate this team slightly more had Lucarelli been with them, but his club money spoke louder to him.
This team is ridiculously old. Lipe, Evandro, William, Éder, Lucão, as well as Bruno and Wallace to some extent... I try to be optimistic we could see new faces in a near future (Alan and Rodriguinho were right there), but oh well... at least there is Kadu who is like making his debut in the senior NT right during the WCH after almost two years out solely out of desperation from the staff due to all the injuries and their inability to let other younger people play more. lol
