Error in the score of the match, Eczacibasi won 3-2, not Fenerbahce.

Here's the letter the girls wrote in response to the response (google translated):

STATEMENT

In connection with the article that appeared in Gazeta Wyborcza on November 6, 2019 and further interviews on this women's Polish national team in volleyball, we would like to inform you that:

1. After the end of the national team the team, excluding Magdalena Stysiak and Maria Stenzel, selected the team's representatives, ie Malwina Smarzek-Godek and JoannaWołsz, to talk with representatives of the Polish Volleyball Federation.

2. On September 9, 2019 Appointed representatives met with President Kasprzyk and presented problems arising in the team asking for reactions, thus informing that the team did not see any further possibility of cooperation with Nawrocki's coach. The delegation was not considered credible by President Kasprzyk, which prompted us to issue a letter confirming the compliance of the rest of the team with the representatives.

3. The above-mentioned letter was challenged by President Kasprzyk in terms of the authenticity of the signatures contained therein. The document contains nothing but confirmation of the coherence of the whole team's sentences with signatures. The above-mentioned document is the only one submitted by the team to PZPS. The information provided by the media regarding the alleged letter asking for the dismissal of Nawrocki's coach is false and groundless.

4. On October 17, 2019. there was a meeting of the players of the Chemist Police playing in the Polish national team with President Kasprzyk, at which President Kasprzyk declared that for the qualifications January Coach Nawrocki will remain as the first coach of the National Team, while after qualifications conversations will be resumed and attempts will be made to solve the problem. In the light of the promise made by the President, we considered that a compromise had been accepted.

5. On November 6, 2019 Information denied to the President's earlier assurances (i.e. information about the extension of the contract with Coach Nawrocki until 2022) without any talks with the team.

It is true that President Kasprzyk often urged players to talk openly and inform him about problems in the team. After an attempt, open conversation and presentation of problems, the team met with a lack of understanding on the part of the President, and in addition, the information provided to the President went to the media. A dignified representation of the country and the image of the National Team have always been the team's priority and the talks with President Kasprzyk were aimed at solving the problem. For the sake of good representation, the team tried to solve the problem without involving the media and bystanders, including agents. The multiplication of articles related to this case, and first of all the interview of President Kasprzyk revealing the details of the conversations he had undertaken earlier, caused great indignation on the team. In the face of all allegations, often false, the team feels hurt and cheated. Publicizing the internal problems of representation in the press in the opinion of players is unacceptable and may have a negative impact on the upcoming qualifications

The alleged duplicative accusation of reluctance or jealousy of the team towards Magdalena Stysiak is a nasty insinuation aimed at diverting attention from other problems. In earlier conversations of the team with Coach Nawrocki (held in Spała), the topic of the alleged conflict of Magdalena Stysiak was discussed for the first time. The team unanimously emphasized that Magdalena is a desirable player in the Polish team and that each of the girls believes in her major contribution to achieving the goals. At the end of the national season a meeting was held among the players themselves. The case was resolved and Magdalena Stysiak herself revealed the reasons for the alleged dispute. The conversation resulted in manipulations by Coach Nawrocki, who tried to turn the player against the rest of the team with comments about the alleged jealousy or dislike of the team towards her person. As it has already been mentioned above, the team is happy about Magda's presence in the national team and is counting on common successes, and the article in Gazeta Wyborcza considers it another scandalous attempt to disrupt Magdalena, moreover, the team.

During the meetings held with President Kasprzyk, we informed about the following reasons for our position:

1. The team tried to talk to Coach Nawrocki about current problems during the training camps, as well as previous staff seasons, but each conversation was met with negative reception and downplaying. Most players did not receive even one individual conversation during the 5-month staffing season.

2. There is no contact between staff seasons. The coach and training staff did not have any personal or even telephone contact with players and clubs. The team found out about everything, including calling, or a few days before the grouping began. An additional problem was the complete absence of Coach Nawrocki during league matches (domestic and foreign), which resulted in a total lack of dialogue. After we sent a letter to PZPS, the coach suddenly began to appear at matches in Poland.

3. Underestimating the health of the players and showing dissatisfaction in the event of injury. Often, putting the result above the health of the players.

4. Lowering the team's sense of value, self-confidence and individual players. Lowering the team's aspirations and potential. Lack of psychological and mental leadership of the team.

5. Lack of honesty and repetitive bad statements about their players, often also in conversations with other volleyball players.

6. Errors in the conduct of matches, lack of constructive tips, fits of fury that badly affected the team and offensive statements indicating disrespect.

7. Coach Nawrocki's acceptance of the unprofessional behavior of one of the staff members (close, close relations with one of the players). Allowing immoral behavior, while the Trainer does not react to the problem being reported by competitors.

8. Lack of a professional training staff and conducting classes incompetent trainers to train players of the National Team.

9. Slandering a staff member by Coach Nawrocki and the rest of the training staff in the presence of players, thereby introducing an uncomfortable working atmosphere.

The allegations related to such a late reaction on the part of the team were caused by care for the good of the team and the desire to meet the expectations of the supporters who were support for us in this difficult HR season. However, the team would like to emphasize that the fact of the problem was reported the day after the end of the European Championships in Turkey, i.e. on September 9, 2019. According to the team, the problem was intentionally postponed so that now, in accordance with an article by Gazeta Wyborcza, blame us just before qualifying for the Olympic Games. The article that appeared in Gazeta Wyborcza on November 6, 2019 is biased and strikes at the dignity and good name of the team. Most of the information given in it is false. The team is outraged by the light in which it was presented. The team, when contacting PZPS, counted on constructive talks to solve the problem, and not on publicizing the matter in a way that defamed the team.

What a wild weird story this is 

@Volleybox The scary thing for them is that they are the same team, mostly NT players. They have #FabianaClaudino  now instead of #FolukeAkinradewo ... certainly not  a downgrade

#HisamitsuSprings has lost more matches so far this season (3of5) than they did in the last two seasons combined (2/41)

Four teams from Premier Conference are 2 matches behind, and two teams from Star Conference are 1 match behind--due to cancelled matches opening weekend.

 

The five cancelled matches have been rescheduled for the end of the season:

Sat 4 Jan 2020

12:00 Denso v Hisamitsu

14:00 Toray v Saitama

15:00 NEC v Okayama

Sun 5 2020

12:00 Denso v Okayama

15:00 Hisamitsu v NEC

 

 

Now 7 teams. India not participate.
I sorta glad the match against FENERBAHÇE wasn't streamed. It would have been painful to watch. [25-11, 25-17, 25-10] Reception 12%; Attack 18%. Super ouch. I'm sure they'll do better next week against Vakıfbank. gogo AGY
3–2 wins are good for character building. I think it was my team's 3-2 over Turkey in the U20 Tournament that kicked them down their winning path We got this. gogo AGY

The streets in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, flooded after Typhoon Hagibis made landfall Saturday. Helicopters plucked people from their flooded homes on Sunday as rescue efforts went into full force in wide areas of Japan.

Up to 33 people have died, and at least 19 people are missing.

Good job for Vitra with 27 points for Boskovic. But I think that we it will be well-established, Vakifbank will be very hard to beat with its incredible offensive armada : Haak, Karakurt, Gabi, Zehra and Milena. Great match anyway, I hope we will have more of those classic this season.
V.League is going to use the Hawkeye Challenge system this year. It's limited to the camera shots and won't show the floating ball animations. The 3 meter line is not on camera. Each team gets three challenges in a match, if they win the challenge they keep it.

This should speed things up. Challenges have been notoriously slow, often taking 3-4 minutes, which is longer than the break between sets.

The 2019-20 V.League Season brings new rules for how teams will be ranked.

Previously teams were ranked by:

Points ->Wins ->Set Percentage ->Scoring Rate

Beginning with the 2019-20 season teams will be ranked by:

Wins ->Points ->Set Percentage ->Scoring Rate

This is in line with the way FIVB has been doing it since 2015 or so.

I prefer the Dark Theme But it’s not enough Dark for me !!!
I'm not really connected to the Home/Waiting Room/Movies part of the site, but I'll mention this from a reverse angle: I've restrained myself from posting movies and newsy items precisely because they go to that Waiting Room. It feels like I'm spamming the general population. I would really like to be able to post movies and Info that are attached to a specific team or player or tournament that wouldn't bother people who aren't already interested in those particular teams or players or tournaments. Is there a way to do that?

Seems great to offload some admin work. The problem with crowd-sourcing "quality" is that this is the Internet, and there are more Haters than Likers on the Internet. Haters gonna Hate. Likers gonna Like. Doesn't really speak to quality. I dunno.
I never looked at the "Club View" before. It's lovely. It might go against what this is specifically for --"Transfers"-- but if it could include "retirees" in 'going out', and draftees from university etc. 'coming in' ... I'd print it out and hang it on my wall
Begum Hepkaptan good luckkkk...❤
I read somewhere that Kasia Skowrońska-Dolata will play for Pomi next season!
how she is best setter when Thailand was in 16th place ? :)))) with only 17 set won =D
