Funvic/Taubaté took 1-0 lead against Juiz de Fora in the playoff quarter-finals of the Brazilian men’s volleyball Superliga.

 

Opposite hitter Wallace de Souza highlighted Taubaté with 20 points in this match. At the end of it, Wallace had a rather interesting meeting with Marcelo Méndez, his former coach in Sada Cruzeiro.

Wallace did not know that Argentine expert came to watch this game. Of course, Méndez came to observe Cruzeiro’s potential opponents in the playoff finals, but also to cheer for his son Juan, libero of Juiz de Fora, and scan the players of this club since the most of its squad consists of players under contract with Cruzeiro.

„Of course, he’s not stupid,“ Wallace jokingly commented on Méndez’s presence in the game.

„We will not meet in the next phase. Possibly in a final. That’s what we crave. I have a great respect for him, everyone knows. And I wish him ’good luck’ because you have to do that, right? (laughs). To face them (Cruzeiro) is not good,“ Taubaté opposite said.

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
