  • really boring qf sauf some particular sets

    Maybe Italy should also switch to 1-4 and 5-8 play offs. what's the probability of an upset?

  • Eeeh the 5th going to the semis over the 4th is not uncommon, but usually that's the only uncertain pair

    If wikipedia is correct in their tables, since 2002, 5th team advanced to the semifinals 10 times (so that's ~50% probability), 6th team - 6 times (6/19), 7th team - twice and 8th team - 0 times. Obviously, there were times when league was more even, but nonetheless that gives over 40% of chances for 5/6th team (statistically) in span of 19 seasons, so that's quite a lot actually. Wins of 7/8th teams seems to be a margin of statistical error though.


    Since 2018 we've had only one win of lower-seeded team (last year's Scandicci which lost 4th spot by set ratio) and I don't think we'll see any this season considering how well Scandicci played.

    Yeah it's not happening this year, I was speaking more in general terms. Also I'm too lazy to check, but I guess those 6th going through semis were mostly in the 00/early 10, I honestly don't remember a 6th place in the semis in the last 10 years while it seems correct that every couple of seasons or so the 5th gets through (since 2018 it's only Scandicci but in 2017 Modena went to the finals after ranking 5th in regular season so it would be twice in the last 5 playoffs)

    Do you remember the case of Alessia Orro and her stalker from 2019? It seems that this guy got arrested again for the same thing (Novara-Busto-Monza are close to each other, so change of the club wasn't too helpful, it seems). :gone: And quite frankly it sounds really dangerous considering after all these years he's still after her, so I feel sorry for Alessia.

    thanks for the valuable info. I partially retract from my point then. 4-5 could be a toss up apparently. So maybe no 1 and 2 (or even 3) which will have a way greater advantage over 7 and 8 should advance to semis and 3 and 4 should battle it out with 5, 6.


    Yes I guess we found ourselves a good synthesis here out of thesis and antithesis above. who's gonna contact the federations now?

    see Robin, Italy is no safe haven either. it's time you consider Fener or THY :rose:

    lol


    But back to the topic, also Wolosz mentioned in interview some time ago, that she had a stalker once she played for Busto few years ago

    I think most leagues have 6 strongish teams that can play competitive series. So I think both serie a and Sultanlar ligi should implement a system that first two in the ranking qualify directly to semis and 3-4-5 and 6th teams play playoffs for semis. I remember a few tournament this was used. Not sure if it used in any of the major leagues:teach:

  • it was boring this year but last year 4vs 5 and 3 vs 6 was so tie


    Different from turkey that besided top 4 the others are far away even if ptt and gs can give surprises some times

  • Well, this season in Brazilian league the 5th placed team is close to the final after being ahead 1-0 in the semis against the 1st placed team. Last year in the male league, the 8th placed team beat the 1st one in the QFs. Sure the QFs normally can be pretty boring, but the chance of an upset always makes them somewhat exciting. Not to mention it's always more volleyball to watch, which is always good to me lol
