Whats to be achieved here?
Isnt the next step just an NBL tribunual hearing, where the same verdicts can basically be handed out, if it were me id make them a little harsher to encourage players to accept the early penalties unless you have a real genuine case or evidence that hasnt been considered.
From what i saw of the games, the penalties are reasonable, some may be a little harsh, but not totally unreasonable at the same time, so would likely stand, if i was one of the players id just cop it and move on.
The AFL does the same thing, views the incidents and hands out a penalty without a hearing, which is usually slightly reduced, then if appealed it has the risk of being increased if the appeal is not successful, so most are not appealed and would save the AFL alot of time and money, id say this was just the NBLs version which makes sense to me.
Whats the NBL's next move, put together tribunal hearings in the next few days? suspend players until fines are paid?
