NBL Fixture repetition
Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before so apologies if this has been covered off already....
Who puts the NBL fixture together? Was looking at the 36ers schedule, or 'fixture', and it seems very clumped!
(Currently) 3x Wildcats games in 5 - including 2 back to back.
(Shortly) 4x Townsville games in 7 - including 2 back to back.
(Round 13/14) 2x Sydney games back to back.
(Later) 3x Cairns games in 5 - including 2 back to back.
And in our last 6 games we play Cairns 3 times and the Hawks twice.
Surely they can make it more even than that?! A team could be struggling early in the season and then come good in the latter half of the season.
Great for the teams that played them early in the season and picked up easy wins.....not great for the teams that have to play them after they have made a few list changes and are highly competitive.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents worth!
