Re: @Paul
Credits to Germans winning a bronze in 2014 and the 'volleyball history' that was taken account into the selection of 12 classified team. I wonder why the Netherland is not the list, they have a great history. How about Cuba, 2010 bronze medalist in world championship. The level of BS :FIVB.
No shade on the German team, I do think they should be part of the elite teams

Well, German may not be the best in the World League, but the World League is not everything. In the Continental Competitions Germany does really well. Plus they picked but in the last World Championship, making all the way to the semi-finals.

This system of history as an important factor for the selection of the WL group 1 participants is just an insult towards fair competition giving the traditional powerhouses a protected status while others don't. China, Japan, Australia and especially Germany have not reached any worthy sportive criteria for this reward. Slovenia is left empty-handed and the Netherlands have wasted their time and effort in a worthless final 4. But the worst of all is Belgium, they were simply punished for their success.

Will Lube win battle for Simón? Cruzeiro refuse high-priced offer from SupeLega runners-up!

Re: @Axe
I disagree. These players are worth it and the league may well become the strongest again in the world as it should be. The men's game is so much better than the women's game today and people need to respect that. Reply

ITA M: Perugia find replacement for Zaytsev – Trentino icon Lanza signs!

So Wrong. Trentino will compete for the top 3 spots in A1. Russell is a massive pickup for them. Very smart and consistent organization.

All the pressure is on Perugia with its investments. Reply
