B.Joyce to 6ers?

Heard a whisper at game on the weekend that if Marty goes Brendan is in the box seat and is willing to coach for cheap.

I personally dont like this move but what do others think? Perhaps hed be ok if we put a clause in SOJ cant play for us?

(Mod: Sure you did, posting from NSW at your supermarket job?)

no clause needed, i doubt SOJ would ever want to play in the same team as his father nor would his father ever want to coach him- the crap they've had to put up with in the past has surely put them off it.

An upgrade, but then again so is my grandmother.

This is the best roster in the league right now, so you would want to make sure the replacement was unequivocally right before assing Marty. They have the ability to win multiple titles if the right guy was at the helm.

Brendan would be a great asset to that roster....they all need to be held accountable, every time they step on the court.

Skull hits it on the head.

Accountable. Johnson had a woeful game, and he needs to be lit up for that performance. Stop tugging your shorts and start getting tough.
Too talented to waste, but needs a mentor to rip him a new one.

Cj and creek, oh my god please give these guys some burn. Crosswell needs to be a coach coz his time in the big game is OVER.

Season is still going.

Playoffs still a possibility.

Board has not indicated they have lost confidence in coach.

Yet you guys are already fantasizing about FOSOJ.

I like it! It also means we wouldn't have to listen to him as a commentator! I just cant see us sacking Clarke though because we are inconsistent. We win just enough to keep him around.

As I recall Gibson asked for a change a coach clause.
Most likely - Clarke's love child would've too.

The Adelaide 36ers are 5-5 and in 5th place after 10 games. At the same point last year we were 3-7 and second last (8th). Yes we have a better quality team this year and we probably should be 7-3 and would be IF we'd won both games this weekend as we should have. Even though we're probably 2 games back from where we should be I'd hardly say its time to sack Clarke right now. Most of this team is contracted for next season so I'd see how this year pans out before replacing the coach part way through the season. If we were 1-10 like Townsville then yes I'd say he needs to go ASAP, but not now.

Joyce wouldn't be a bad choice as a replacement. At the very least it would mean he doesn't have a One or Ten microphone in his hands at Hawks home games.

I think you are right HV8, it's not time to sack anyone yet, but this past month should have warning bells ringing and contingencies being discussed.

The team has lost three games they should have won and history has shown that winning games against Perth has proven about as useful as painting over a crack; temporary satisfaction but ultimate frustration.

Management should have enough insight to recognise if there is a problem. If they are too ignorant or unwilling to impliment change (if/when required)then the future of this club is grim.

The fan base may have tolerated the past few seasons but the message is clearer now more than ever. The roster is better, the record is better but still significantly less people see value in the experience (average home crowd appears to be down almost 1100 people from last season)*.

Meanwhile in Perth, NZ, Cairns, Melbourne and Woolongong average crowds appear either on par or considerably better than last season. All these teams but Melbourne have retained their coach and the core of their roster for multiple seasons...Melbourne I put down to new venue, new import and aggressive marketing.

Adelaide has the same coaching staff but the starting five has been significantly different every season with only Johnson recieving an upgraded from the bench..Hmmmm

No its not. New Zealand has the best roster, blind freddy can see that.

Good work Big Ads.


I think the average attendance has been:
2009: 4,666
2010: 4,778
2011: 4,852
2012: 4,954

It's been increasing each year, so I can't understand why it would have dropped all of a sudden? Can anyone shed some light why?

New zealand have been very lucky in the past 3 seasons, they have been injury free! Every other team has been hit with there key player's goin down at somd point of the season.

Actually, no. I don't like the 36ers so I'd rather that they didn't get a decent coach.

I'm pretty sure Ian "Moose" Robilliard is looking for an NBL coaching gig at the moment.Perhaps Adelaide should sign him up, and where's Kevin Ratzsch these days? He'd be a perfect fit for the sixers.

The Live games may be a part of it, but I know too many former Gold members that are not going these days as a result of one man.

One of those members pulled out of Best Man duties because the Sixers were playing at the same time. He no longer goes.

breakers have had injuries bth seasons they won. last year was Abercrombie with his fot right before the finals. The previous year mika hurt his knee inthe first game of the playoffs and was only 50% and they still won. All teams have injuries. There was no luck involved in winning a championship.

Camel, Lemanis wasn't considered that great a coach by many before their championships. Had to stick at it for a number of years before they got there.

I can remember many a "no idea having" NZ journalist calling for Lemanis to lose his job before they won a title, especially the year before where they grabbed Braswell towards the end of the season, Penney was playing amazing Basketball and they went on a decent win streak only to just fall short of the playoffs. Then he went back to back.
