VfB Friedrichshafen made a first step towards winning the 2018/19 German Men’s Volleyball Championship title.


The top seed VfB Friedrichshafen won the first match of the 2018/19 1. Bundesliga Männer playoff finals against the No.3 seed Berlin Recycling Volleys, at home, by a 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-17).

The visiting side was on a high level only in the second set of the best-of-five series opener which was far from enough to extend a duel to at least one or more sets. BR Volleys will have a chance to show themselves in a better light in front of own crowd at the Max-Schmeling-Halle, on May 2.

The Pole Bartłomiej Bołądź top-scored for Friedrichshafen with 18 points. Philipp Collin set up four kill blocks. The Frenchman Samuele Tuia notched 11 points for BR Volleys.

2018/19 1. Bundesliga Männer playoff finals – Game 1:

(1) VfB Friedrichshafen – (2) Berlin Recycling Volleys 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-17)

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
