Can verbal agreement in volleyball be valid?

by WoV

Is volleyball like a business and volleyball players are like employees? Hypothetically, when you make a business agreement normally you write it down on a piece of paper and both sides have to sign it. And that piece of paper in most cases is the only proof of an agreement with all obligations and all the right. Is it like that?


verbal agreement

Can you force a volleyball player to agree to something he doesn’t like? Sure no, especially if he has some years and some volleyball experience. And sure, no in cases when he has a good volleyball manager to advise and represent him. And good volleyball manager would never advise a player to accept some proposal without signing some document. Would he?

Imagine one volleyball Federation to make a decision in January, or maybe in April, almost at the end of the season and to disqualify the player and give punishment to the club for the mistake even the Federation didn’t notice at the beginning of the season when they gave to a player a permission to play?

Are we talking about the Federation that has to give an example in the situation when in a few months they will have to organize the World Championship?

And the ex-player who will have to come back to the club of origin in the middle of the season, even if he doesn’t want to do it, just because the papers are not OK. What kind of a club would officially invite him to come back after all?

All of this could have been solved from the beginning with less publicity because at the end, it will not be useful for anybody to continue with the lawyers, courts, sentences… Player would not be able to play for a long period of time, federation will lose their credibility in front of an important competition and clubs will lose respect for each other ’cause they will have to play against each other in the future. 

Or it may be useful for somebody else?
