    Add in Rodriguinho. That would be a lovely team: Him, Flavio, Vaccari, Honorato, Felipe Roque

    I really like Rodriguinho so do Vacari. I got what everybody said about Vacari, but every year he improves more and more. And Renan really likes him. Rodriguinho has 1.98cm and better reception, but, the botton line is, they are giving a big oportunity to Vacari be in Paris.

    Okay, in all seriousness, I'm gonna be respectful here and try to just put an end to this. Both Sidney and I are Brazilians and long-term followers of volleyball and Brazilian Superliga. What Sidney said at first is that most players from our league come from poorer (not necessarily poor) families, which, coupled with our country's long-lasting socioeconomical situation, leaves us to conclude most players don't have the chance and/or the time to fully invest themselves in learning English -- which, and you should agree on this, is a privilege to most Brazilians, athletes notwithstanding.


    It's not unusual to see players in our league being underpaid or not paid at all, living day-by-day, selling their volleyball material just to make some money to live. Plenty of them even move to Portugal partially due to the language barrier. English is simply not a priority and not something that's widely spoken in our local volleyball. This is not a racist statement as we're not dimishing anyone, just stating how things work over here. Also, for some weird reason you told me to shut up when I mentioned Natália and Garay, but I only mentioned them because from what I've seen, they speak like natives, probably from playing abroad for a few years or from being introduced to English studies earlier on in their life, the latter which might be the case with Roberta too.


    Anyway, hopefully that clears things up not only to you, but to everyone else who might be confused.

    FOR REAL DUDE??? !!! DON'T LIE ON YOUR PEOPLE!


    I AM FRIENDS WITH SOME "OLD BRAZILIAN PLAYERS" LIKE KERLY, POPO, TATY, JOSIANE, GISELI, ANA VOLPONI, KIKA, ... AND OTHERS WHO STILL PLAYING, AS LETICIA HAGE, NATASHA, ANDRESSA ... THEY ALL HAVE FANCY CARS, APARTMENTS....

    IF OUR SUPERLIGA HAS ALL THOSE PROBLEMS, HOW DO WE HAVE 162 GIRLS PLAYING BETWEEN 12 TEAMS? THEY ALL SHOULD BE IN ROMENIA, POLÓNIA, SWISS, FRANCE... OR NOT?

    PLEASE, COULD YOU LET ME KNOW 2 PLAYERS, FROM THE BRAZILIAN SUPERLIGA THAT WENT TO PORTUGAL?

    WTF 🙈🙊🙉 LMAO I CAN'T DO IT WITH BRAZILIANS THAT TRASH YOUR OWN PEOPLE. THATS SUCKS BUT ITS WHAT ITS....

    I'm here because I love volleyball, but I don't accept shade or types of racism. He probaby didn't tought in been a racist, but that doesnt waive my right to express how I felt. I DONE ABOUT IT!

    Looks like junior needs some english lessons too


    Is there a block button just asking?

    DONT DO THAT.....DO NOT DO ME! IM NOT THAT KIND ONE TO PLAY WITH.... I JUST SPOKE MY MIND, AND FOR ME WHATEVER HE SAID WAS RACIST. IM BRAZILIAN BUT LIVE IN THE US SINCE 2004 AND IM COLLEGE EDUCATED SO U KNOW. IM SORRY IF SOMEONE GOT OFFENED BUT I ALWAYS SAID WHATEVER I THINK AND STANDUP 4 MY TOUNG. LOVE U!

    I'm not going to engage with this any further because why should I even bother, but... you might want to check what "racism" means before going around calling people racist lmao

    "racism is the belief that humans may be divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races”; that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, and other CULTURAL behavioral faturas " SO CLASSIFY THAT MOST BRAZILIAN'S PLAYERS ARE POOR AND THEREFORE THEY DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH. IT IS SO VERY RACIST FOR ME

    I will never understand that...we were all surprised. No one expected it. I think one of the major things that happened was serving on Davis and she just getting completely lost. Then the entire team fell apart. Also no one believed Jaque could have such an amazing performance in attack. That was probably the best match of her career.

    I HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THAT MY FRIEND. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT AMERICAN PLAYERS CHICKEN OUT WHEN THEY PLAY AN O.G. THEY WILL NEVER WIN ONE.

    "... I think most players come from poorer families" and don't take English classes when they are younger .." LMAO FOR ME IT WAS VERY RACIST 4 U SAID THAT... JUST TO LET U KNOW... I'VE NEVER HEARD IN BRAZIL SOMEONE RELATING POOR PEOPL WITH VOLLEYBALL. U R VERY WRONG! IM SORRY.

    Both Natália and Garay have great English.

    shut up.... :( this discusion is sooooooo stupid. Lucarelli is a Brazilian middle class and he speaks English much better than any Italian player. Speaking or not speaking English with the financial level that those players have is a cultural option and not weath situation!

    It's a Brazilian accent but she speaks better than most any other Brazilian player I've seen. She probably learned English at school, because she comes from a wealthy family. I think most players come from "poorer" families and do not take English classes when younger.

    I THINK YOUR COMMENT IS VERY RACIST. Uauuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

    ALL THESE BRAZILIAN PLAYERS ARE ROUND 28/30 YEARS OLD AND EARN A LOT OF MONEY SINCE 20 21 YEARS, IN THE BRAZILIAN LIGA. IF YOU DON'T KNOW SUPERLEAGUE IN BRAZIL IT IS IN THE 5 MOST WEATH LEAGUES IN THE WORLD. THEREFORE, ANY PLAYER COULD PAY FOR ENGLISH SCHOOL.

    Vacari is going to tokio with Flavio. Both still traing with Brazilian time

    Renan is back to NT trainings as of today, so he's supposed to go to Tokyo as head coach.


    Also it was interesting to read that both Vaccari and Flávio will keep training with the team until they travel to Japan. Flávio being the 4th MB is more than well known, but it's curious to hear Vaccari is staying too... I guess that means he's done a good job in trainings and is the direct sub in case any of the other OHs gets injured. Safe to assume he's gonna have more playing time post-OGs.

    But Vacarri is beeing preper since 2016. In that time he was invated to training with the gold medal team in 2016 and he staid with tem into the last min before the games!
