The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) suspended three players of Argentina Men’s National Team!


The FIVB announced that its Disciplinary Panel has ruled that Facundo Conte, Federico Pereyra and Pablo Crer, members of Argentina National Team, violated the disciplinary regulations of the governing body of the world Volleyball at the 2019 International Olympic Qualifier in Ningbo, China, on August 11. They were all suspended for imitating the shape of the Asian eyes.

Pereyra and Crer have been suspended for three matches, while Conte got a reduced ban of two matches because he immediately apologized on his social media account after making a gesture. All three players will serve their suspensions at the 2019 South American Championship that has begun yesterday. The FIVB also fined Argentine Volleyball Federation (FeVA) with 15,000 CHF.

Recall that the assistant coach of Russian Women was suspended for the same reason.

So what about Zoran Terzic for his rude gestures against the referee during the recent european championship final match?

OK it was CEV tournament but can such things be tolerated?

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
