Volleyball has experienced many changes of rules over the time. One of them is the number of contacts.

As Australian coach Mark Lebedew reminded us in his Blog, block touch was counted as the first touch until 1976. It means that the next touch after the block had to be a set up. Of course, as we all know, now block does not count as a first touch. Still, there are some players who sometimes like to play by the old rules and spike on a second hit, like Earvin Ngapeth. He has mastered this.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
