GP 2016: Guidetti – First time I see referee whistling screening rule fault!“

After Giovanni Guidetti recently complained that referees for some reason stopped punishing a team which violates „screening“ rule, one referee decided to call it!



During Round 1 of the second weekend in 2016 FIVB World Grand Prix – Group 1 in Bari (Italy), umpire from the USA, Patricia Rolf, called screening rule violation committed by Russia’s NT (when players of one team prevent opposing players to see the server) against The Netherlands.



Head coach of the Dutch NT, Guidetti, was the first to draw attention to referees to start whistling it (indirectly suggesting that Russia mosty violate the rule) so he celebrated Rolf’s call by posting this to Twitter:

„First time in my life that a referee know and whistle a ’screen fault’! Great job Mrs. Patricia Rolf!“

We started the Poll regarding this rule, check it out on home page!

Exactly. He started to show a real face. When he can not win, of course someone else is in fault. Referee. We know him very well.

It’s a fault , it has to be called , also it’s not fair for less taller teams such as the asians , they are already at disadvantage under the net always struggling against impossible blocks , and dealing with attacks impossibly high for them , now they should get punished already receiving , it’s just not fair , the rule is there for a reason , what would be next a block while receiving?
