It’s a big no for them.
Volleyball players reacted to BaliPure’s import Danijela Dzakovic’s hitting incident against libero Jewelle Bermillo during their match against Creamline yesterday in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference 2019.
Down by five in the opening frame, 19-24, Dzakovic and Bermillo have had a miscommunication trying to dig an off-the-block spike from Creamline’s Jema Galanza.
Both players shouted “mine”, thus leading to a dig error which cost them the set. Dzakovic then struck Bermillo on the nape, drawing mixed reactions from the people inside the arena and the aficionados thru social media.
BaliPure eventually lost in straight sets, bolting out of title contention.
As per Bermillo, the Montenegrin reinforcement has already apologized to her, saying she was carried away by emotions and frustrations.
But while this was the case, Dzakovic still drew ire from the volleyball community including some players who took to Twitter their reaction on the incident.
Justin Tiu hopes the league and BaliPure will take necessary action on the incident, saying Dzakovic “needs to learn respect”.
Pls don't sugarcoat or turn a blind eye on this issue PVL and bali pure management. People like her need to let some air out of their head and their feet put back to the ground. She needs to learn respect https://t.co/5p3aC8Sr5v

Petron’s Chloe Cortez had the same sentiment as Buitre as she quipped, “Kung ako to suntukan nalang dedma na kung magkaputukan ng labi??? Char.”

Even former Generika Ayala imports Darlene Ramdin and Kseniya Kocyigit have something to say on the matter.
There are so many things I can pinpoint about what I observed in this clip.. defense system, player positioning, communication. However, I would say that as frustrating as things get, must never let the emotions get the better of the situation. This was unwarranted https://t.co/q10FlrtEoJ
