FIVB, change the rule, please!

Re: @Sorah
That is very stupid too, indeed. If we do a simple analysis we can find a lot of other very stupid things. Another one is uselessly continuing the set when the score difference is 10 points. Who has recovered from that? (I mean in the senior games, not in the underage games.)

FIVB, change the rule, please!

Re: @Sorin Acela
The most stupid rule is each set has 25 points and teams only play serious game from point 15-16.
If sets had 15 or 11 points, they cared from first point, and didn't cause spectators to sleep. Reply

Volleyball has gathered stupid aspects because it is ruled by stupid people like Oldman Graca and Oldman Boričić! Then you have other silly people like this guy. By far the most stupid thing in volleyball is hugging twice a minute. That has to change, that has to be forbidden. Multiple other aspects have to change, but no one is interested in improving volleyball. I sent much more interesting proposals to people in the high hierarchy of volleyball, but no one cared. Some of those morons can't even read an email! While world volleyball is ruled by stupid careless morons, it continue the road towards dying, with most games having 100-300 spectators. This blog is also uninterested in the improvement of volleyball. Reply
