re: SEABL & BIGV

I think you should be more talking about players that STARTED in those leagues and then progressed to NBL. Eg players that played for Waverley and got picked up by an NBL club or players who played for Knox and got picked up.

For example players like Burston/Trigger etc had already been in the NBL for years before they played in either Big v / SEABL.

And lots of the SEABL guys played BigV as well - albeit at lower levels. Shane Mac, Braith Cox etc.

Speaking on SEABL strong word around is that Tommy Greer has just signed on at Nunawading for 2013


Good luck to Maalo Hicks getting any court time!

Based on Tommy's current form (or lack there of) then court time for Maalo shouldn't be too much of a concern.

If Maalo gave a f##k for the last few years and actually got fit and worked hard he'd be in Greer's position at the Tigers or above.

Waste of an athletic talent that actually has the skills to go with it, just no application.

Greer back to spooks after what happened last time??

Word is that Hicks is heading to Corio Bay Stingrays.

There is a significant gap between Big V Championship and SEABL, similar gap between SEABL and NBL.

re: SEABL & BIGV

Big V Champ has 4-5 tough teams that could be compared to the top 12 SEABL teams, the rest in Big V would struggle but are simmilar to the bottom few in SEABL. So SEABL just has alot more depth.

But all Big V teams would beat the gunners, even Div 1 teams.

re: SEABL & BIGV

Sorry but none of the BigV teams could match it at SEABL level straight away, go watch a SEABL and BigV game back to back, the difference in size of the players and speed between the 2 leagues is quite pronounced. Most BigV 5's would struggle to play 4 in SEABL and so on. As an example Platenik dominates as a 4 in BigV but wouldn't make any SEABL roster as a 4, he has the body of a 3 but no outside shot, its one of the main reasons he hasnt gone any further than BigV. Big V is full of undersized players.

re: SEABL & BIGV

What a lot of rubbish about Maalo not getting any time at Spectres if Tommy is part of the team ......and calling Camron lazy you got to be joking .

Will be interesting to see the actual signings for next season and hopefully the clubs will continue to invest in the younger players and not just think short term.

re: SEABL & BIGV

Ringwood dominated the Big V with a 17-3 record
1 Snowball
1-2 Bowlin
2 Weimer
3 Egan
3-4 Belt
4 Clark
5 Whitehead
5 - Sturt

Dandenong had the best record in SEABL with 20-8 record
1 Campbell
1-2 Arnott
1-2 Barker
1-2 Harms
2-3 Louis
2-3 Enge
3-4 Lewis
4 Jois
4-5 Hobba
5 Montreal

Can't see Ringwood getting close to Dandenong, at all. It would be a 20 point game if Ringwood played well.

The other thing you must consider about the two leagues is that SEABL attract much stronger imports in general and the 28 game season is tougher than 20 spread over the same time span.

re: SEABL & BIGV

SEABL is definitely a better league than the BigV top to bottom as I quoted but there is a lot of talent individually from both leagues is what I'm saying.

But Jeff, the point has no relevance. What is the point of producing a list of players who have played in both leagues at some point and saying "both leagues have had good players"?

Most were in NBL before they were in either league you idiot. They are contributing nothing except somewhere to play in the off season for some extra coin!!!

re: SEABL & BIGV

There's far more examples of players flowing out of SEABL into the NBL than from BigV.
These days very few SEABL clubs use NBL talent due to the issues of availability.

re: SEABL & BIGV

There used to be a silly argument, mainly propogated by the SEABL, they they "developed" talent for the NBL, then they used to put out press releases listing AIS scholarship holders basically!

It was pretty dumb, there are lots of contributors to a athletes preparation to play NBL, clubs, schools, coaches etc etc.
