  • Just because it's their sports doesn't mean they'll own for sure

  • England isn't the best at association football nor rugby union (sports it claims to have invented). It doesn't matter.

    • Ya but when in comes to American sports, we're number one except for volleyball.

  • This is because there is a Nba , NFL, NHL, Nascar, Formula 1. Basically national league for main professional sports. I don't find that volley ball gets a professional league or at least one publicized by the media. So people show less interest that my theory.

    • But volleyball is very popular in high schools and in colleges in the US. Why doesn't this translate to good results professionally? And I see lots of people playing volleyball in the beaches.

    • What do you mean?

    • Since volley ball training programs are a rarity in Europe and Brazil more people use them. Kind of like since precious stones is bought every day because they are rare.

  • I'm just guessing here but I think it is because most American cities have winters which means you can only practice for about 1/4 - 1/2 of the year while people living in Brazil or Africa could practice everyday.

    • But guess who's 1st in the baseball rankings, japan. And we are 2nd. So were almost in 1st place at our sport. But we are not ranked in the top 5 for volleyball and beach volleyball which is also our sport.

    • Invest money in volleyball programs instead of football and basketball.
