Anon thats just pithy.
I agree some of the BigV's stuff is cringeworthy, but they at least have a crack.
They are solely focused I think on their internal media consumption, and they have the numbers to justify that, because the league is so big.
SEABL are never edgy, and they do vanilla media. But they do it very well and very consistently.
Some of the opinion stuff by BigV, which NO ONE in mainstream basketball is doing, is good.
I agree with hapy days that the current article, from the BigV CEO, is just bizarre, but I recall for example their main writer, Justin Nelson, openly taking the Tigers to task for taking players from teams in finals for a tournament in Ireland. It was controversial, the sort of stuff talked about on forums, but the only basketball website tacking the issue at all was BigV - props to them. Tigers are one of their clubs and they laid it on thick!
Both league's meet deadlines, and you can expect their regular stuff to always be there on the day they say it will and thats a massive part of the game.
Sorry, but BigV's TV stuff is a lot more fun than SEABL, which simply cannot take the piss out of itself, and they have a crack at issues, call people out, create controversy. Thats good media my friend, because they are creating noise.
I had the pleasure once of attending the BigV Awards dinner, 700+ people, huge night out, great audio visual stuff, and while it was not the most respectful night, they proved to me they get one thing totally, which is their league community.
SEABL are very very well run. The BigV is not far behind, and where you are 100% right is that the clubs in the BigV are smaller and not as well resourced as the relative SEBAL clubs, who can generate stuff for themselves.
Mor importantly, these two league's in each others backyard means they work hard - much harder than the other state based leagues. I would rate both well ahead of the other state leagues from what i've seen, perhaps with the exception of some of the stuff the SBL do.
