You must be blind then, because it's one of my favourite teams, in both men's and women's volleyball. I didn't follow then that much in the last 5/6, because almost all their best players are gone, but they were among my favourites for many years.
I was simply hoping Brazil would give a sense to this tournament, sending a good team. That's all. I know the schedule inside the club season is ridiculous, because it will keep the best teams from sending their best possible players.
In the women's side, having just DR with the main team is unattractive, because they will sweep all the teams. Puerto Rico won't ask to release the players abroad for the tournament and just lost one of the 2 starters available for the tournament, who signed in Italy. Brazil sends such a weak and young team. No idea about Argentina, Colombia and Chile, but they are no challenge. Same for Mexico and Cuba.
As what I've mentioned, its the clubs' decision if they will allow their players to join this competition. This team aint weak. You have Naiane, Maiara, Edinara, Tainara and Lorena as well as Brazil's future starters.
