    Murilo wont travel with Brasil team to Porto Rico. Jaqueline lost her baby today. :( so he wll stay with her this days.


    Oh no!!! That's very unfortunate! I hope they're doing okay right now.
    This very recently happened to someone close to me; it's truly heartbreaking. :(

    After Brazil, Argentina would be my favorite NT. The group is quite young yet the players exhibit loads of potential.
    I haven't watched them in a while so I'm very excited for this World League!

    I'm not too surprised that Ricadro's not in after all. I mean, imagine bringing him from outside Brazil straight into the national team. It would take too much time getting used to him there and his style of setting of course. Plus no matter who's with him, experienced/new players, there's always going to be friction between Ricardinho and many of the players knowing what he did in the past and fearing that he might do it again. It is a shame though considering the fact that he could have been very beneficial for the team :(


    So probable starters? Bruno - Giba - Dante - Lucas - Rodrigao - Serginho - Vissotto. I think we're good to go :)

    Oh okay..after reading some posts, I guess volleyball broadcasting over here isn't as bad as I thought =P


    Umm we get one or two Italian league games each week. Of course they're never live if there's some "major" football thing going on..
    All the major international competitions (world league, grand prix etc.) are aired.
    And all the Asian competitions too. I also happened to stumble across the champions league finals when it aired, so I'm looking forward to this season's finals :]


    But it sucks that women's volleyball doesn't get broadcasted as much and men's.
    Since I don't pay as much attention to women's volleyball than men's, that would probably change once I get a chance to watch it on TV more often :]


    Oh and people who live in Poland are lucky.. :'(

    Hi everyone!


    Yess!! I've finally found a volleyball forum that I like! I've been looking for ages but all I found were forums that loosely discuss the game and it's rules, and provide various tips and instructions.
    I've been dying to share my thoughts and feelings about teams and matches with other fans, but none of my friends or family share my passion for volleyball :\ so yeah I'm glad I stumbled across this place!


    Yup..looks like I've found a new way of procrastinating.. haha =P
