Rd3 NBL23: Wagstaff suspension kills 'world class league' boast

In: NBL — Tuesday, 18 Oct, 2022

THE NBL's pathetic knee-jerk decision to suspend Perth warrior Jesse Wagstaff for a game because his 100 per cent legal screen left United's Lachie Barker concussed makes a complete and total mockery of its laughable claims of being "a world class league." World class bush league maybe.

Cut it out NBL. Unduly rough play?

In: NBL — Saturday, 15 Oct, 2022

THE NBL today issuing Perth Wildcats forward Jesse Wagstaff with a "please explain" for his perfectly legal midcourt screen which unfortunately wiped out Melbourne's Lachlan Barker and led to a concussion, has to be some kind of joke. Either that or the League is soiling its pants now concussion rightly is viewed as a serious issue.

NBL23: Jet lag or JackJumpers?

In: NBL — Wednesday, 12 Oct, 2022

WELCOME back. Apologies. Been a tad busy with the FIBA World Cup. But Round 3 of the NBL is as good a place as any to join the 2022-23 party as the Adelaide 36ers make their debut. Two home games give Mitch McCarron and the world-beaters a chance at a hot 2-0 start, jet lag notwithstanding.

Opals at #3, Rose Gold and Jade

In: Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 11 Oct, 2022

IN the aftermath of the Women's World Cup in Sydney, FIBA's latest global ranking has Australia accurately installed as #3 behind the USA and China, most of us happy the culture restoration is on course but few asking how it fell away so badly? If you don't learn the lessons of history, you're doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

"It's a world class league!" Really? Says who?

In: NBL — Monday, 10 Oct, 2022

IT amuses so many basketball fans in Australia that the NBA never feels any need to promote itself as a "world class league." It is No.1 in the world, something we know and accept. It is THE league. So then which leagues need to beat their chests and shout such bold declarations? Perhaps those that fear they aren't?
