iiNet refusing to pay out on $5000 shot

Just saw a promo from Today Tonight for a story about the guy who shot the $5000 half court shot the other week. Sounds like they have refused to pay out his winnings.

What's the story? Presume they don't want to pay as they gave him two shots?

Don't turn it into a TT bashing session. The fact is that yet again basketball has managed to produce an embarrassing story. Goes well with the fact that we couldn't organise a clearance in time for our import. Amateur hour that wouldn't happen in any other professional sport.

They gave him another shot after consulting someone on the sideline. Assumed at the time that it was an iiNet representative. Presumably not now that they are taking this stance.

The Court Announcer running the competition clearly told Hurley his second shot would earn him the $5,000.

Hurley is therefore legally entitled to the $5,000.

To what degree the 36ers court announcer stuffed up just means that the 36ers as opposed to IINET are legally liable to pay the $5,000.

Not arguing with the fact that the court announcer clearly had no idea what he was doing... Why he was given another shot was staggering. Clearly iiNet dont feel as if they have to pay, as the quick shot is simply that. One shot, miss it you lose. has been the same for everyone, why this bloke feels he is different to everyone before, and after him is beyond me. Obviously the announcer is at fault here, but you can be sure that neither him, nor the 36ers will pay the $5K . And surely lawyers will actually be more costly than even the prize he believes he as won in the end.

I have nothing to answer for. I was given a second shot for 5 thousand dollars, I made it... It is a verbal agreement that is legally binding made in front of 4 thousand people caught on camera from multiple angles.

I am owed the money, end of story

I dont have to answer to complete morons saying that I am somehow ruining the sport. Missconduct on there part is doing that. Not me.

Hurls, you were whinging tonight about not being paid yet but how you would be....sounded to me like you were willing to fight this no matter what. Your first shot missed & therefore you shouldnt have been given the second shot to make. What I heard on the night was the court announcer unsure of what the ruling was when the ball got stuck between the ring and the backboard and as a result said to take another shot and we'll sort out the nitty gritty afterward.

The rules are simple, you make the first shot you get the cash....your first shot missed, if it didnt, it wouldnt have been wedged between the backboard and the ring.....stop being greedy!

How is Hurls entitled to the money?! I clearly heard the announcer state he wasnt sure what to do in the situation where the ball was wedged (however, to me, its clearly a miss) and therefore said take another shot and we'll sort it out afterward. They never said make it and you will get $5K.

In fact, I wish I had a spare $5K to pay Hurls and his mate to move seats so I dont have to listen to their uneducated rubbish and swearing every game!

re: iiNet refusing to pay out on $5000 shot

I don't suppose anyone on Hoops has seen the contract agreement with iinet regarding the matter in question?

I simply ask on the basis of who are the parties involved in the event of the second shot from the half court line. iinet provide the funds had he been successful with his first shot, that is clearly explicit prior to the shot being taken but in this instance there was a second half court shot.

Did the MC explicitly state that iinet would pay if successful on the second attempt? If he didn't, than who did Hurls establish a contract with prior to taking the second shot? Was any form of reward offered verbally between the first half court shot and the second and if so did the MC advise who would facilitate the reward in the event Hurls was successful with a second shot?

It may be difficult proving iinet owe Hurls money unless it was specifically communicated to him by an authorised officer of iinet (or a person authorised to act of behalf of) prior to the second attempt being taken.

I love the experts here who blame the Sixers for the new import being cleared too. Another of the many tools on here who are really clueless.
Did it ever occur to them that the P/S all but shouts down over the xmas new year break? Did it ever occur to them that maybe the paper work didnt come thru from where he last played? Maybe BA hadnt processed the paperwork as they too are on holidays?
Poor timing to get a quick cleraance its as simple as that. By the way in most cases quick clearances never happen.

Having said that $5K is chump change, iiNet get about $1500 a year from me alone! Just pay the money or give him that much credit in products and services.

Haha. What a joke saying court announcer didn't explicitly say he would get $5k if he hit the second shot.

This is like Camby and Clarke. Acting as if the people posting on the forum were not at the game.

The court announcer clearly said the second shot would count. If not then why give him the shot?

After he hit the shot the court announcer went 'crazy' and acknowledged Hurls had one.

The whole crowd took enjoyment from the competition and Hurls hitting the shot. Loudest cheer of the night. Cheating Hurls is cheating the rest of the fans at the game.

$5k would be like nothing to the owners. This is more embarrassing than their failure to get rid of Clarke.

If they have a proper claim against IINET then pay Hurls and then chase IINET after.

The club is vicariously liable for the actions of the Court Announcer.

Simple as that.

Of course it is the club's fault if they aren't paying him.

I can understand IINET's argument. Not their fault the court announcer gave him a second shot.

Unless IINET agreed to a second shot then the liability rests with the 36ers and not IINET.

Thus it is the club's fault (vicariously liable for the actions of the Court Announcer) if Hurls hasn't been paid.

If I were the club I would pay before you look stupid in the media given ultimately they will be forced to pay on a legal basis. Oh wait, hurls has gone to Today Tonight. Too late. Complete incompetence.

Legally I cant see how the club has anything to answer for unless it was specifically stated by the court announcer the second shot was for the money, as I would assume the rules of the comp (ie one shot) have been registered by iiNet and/or the NBL.

Morally is certainly a different case, but that's up to the 36ers if they want to act morally or not.

That is precisely what the Court Announcer did Paul. That is why it is such a simple case.

The Court Announcer clearly conveyed to Hurls and the crowd that the shot was for the money. He didn't say "have a shot for fun but it doesn't count".

Clearly a legal obligation not just a moral obligation.

Agree with the majority of posts, he should be paid either by the club, iinet or someone responsible for the competition, and especially from a publicity point of view.

I'll give Hurls the benefit of the doubt and conclude he's been suitably advised that no money will be paid to him and he's not simplying being impatient (geez its not like it's a million dollars).

Nevertheless, and so the matter is resolved efficiently and appropriately (i.e. payment commences immediately and not in the form of weekly payments of $10 dollars for the next 9 and a bit years), Hurls needs to be crystal clear from whom he seeks the payment otherwise he could be chasing longer than he cares to.

Some of the comments seem a bit harsh on Hurls. All of us if offered would have taken a second shot if allowed. I was at the game and it was good to see the shot drop.

The rules do state only one shot but looks like there was an oversight by the announcer letting him take another shot - not Hurls fault.

The club and iinet should go half in the $5k and upgrade him to the cinama seats for the next game as a gesture of goodwill.

re: iiNet refusing to pay out on $5000 shot

A couple of things.

1. Of course everyone would take the second shot, and in his shoes, I would have thought the same thing.

2. iiNet put up the cash. For this kind of cash I.e. $5000 at every game for the season, they would have a policy to cover it. The insurers would be saying no to payment - and rightly so!

3. The club have nothing to do with it. Jarrod Walsh is contracted by the 36ers to court announce, and is not an employee of the club. He has no authority to act as an agent for the 36ers or iiNet. It was he who gave the second shot, with no authority from either the sixers or iinet. He clearly knows the rules are for one shot only, and has acted outside of these. If anyone owes hurls $5000 it's Jarrod Walsh!

4. I think hurls has a legitimate grievance here, but unfortunately, based on my limited knowledge, I don't think he has much legal standing to get it from the club or iinet.

5. To save the bad publicity, I would think iinet may like to cough up / settle for a lower amount, and then have a quiet word to Jarrod about doing some promotional work, E.g. mc a function or similar to make it up to them.

What re the conditions that Hurls agreed to when he accepted the challenge? Did he sign anything?

Who told him to take another shot and was that individual an iinet staff member or an acting agent for iinet?

To take it to an extreme, I walked up to a baller and said if you hit a three, that man over there will give you $10. Is that binding?

In my opinion, $5k isn't a whole lot...I as iinet would contact Hurls and pay the $5 or work out a middle ground.

NONE of this is a reflection on the Adelaide 36'ers.

NONE of this is a reflection onf the NBL.

NONE of this is a reflection on the sport of Basketball in Australia.

yeah the idea that hurls taking $5000 in winnings makes him responsible for 36ers decisions in management is STUPID.

some boffin at iinet should be getting sacked for ever letting this slip through to the media.

why pay an entire media department and their huge prints and advertising spend and commitments to sponsor nbl and no doubt other stuff then not pay out $5000? its idiocy. to be honest whether it was wrong or right to pay it out if im the ceo i sack whichever employee let it slip through. dont let $5000 chip back at six figures of spend.

Well iinet leave the running of their advertising event to the court announcers. So the court announcer becomes an agent of iinet. The ball gets stuck, nothing in the instructions of what to do when the ball gets stuck so the only iinet 'agent' at the stadium makes a decision. In this instance it was another shot, hence they need to pay up.

I bet somewhere in the iinet business model it doesn't cover what to do when today tonight turn up on your doorstop either, but I am sure an agent for them will make a decision on what to do.

lol, just did a google search and found a twitter exchange between the mc and someone where he admits he told the guy " at least make this one ", and includes the #imaygetfired. the other guy (i have no idea his connection) states iinet didnt like paying the last one either, and dont have any t + c's in place? (im unsure of the connection that gives him access to that information to weight it with any credibility although recent events would lend them that of themself)

handing someone the ball after some contention and saying "at least make this one" is pretty much a verbal greenlight. only pauls argument about whether the mc is a true agent allowed to make that decision on behalf of iinet or whoever may be a point but in this case it should be very easy to argue that he was acting on their behalf.

I have no doubt in my mind you'll get the money eventually. This is a clear cut case.

The MC after some consultation with someone on the side lines gave you the ball to attempt another shot for $5,000. Whether anything was verbally acknowledged, signed etc is irrelevant. Everyone in that stadium was under the impression it was for $5,000 and unless we were told otherwise before the shot then that's what it is!

Good on you for kicking up a stink about it, anyone having a go at you is just jealous they dont have the opportunity to get the 5k themselves.

As far as any bad rep on the club or the sport well that's not up to to Hurls to worry about. The guy is legitimately owed 5k and is seeking what is his!

This is a PR disaster though for all involved, I would hope the 36ers/nbl get together with iinet and work something out though as your average mum or dad TT watcher is gonna be barracking for the little man getting jabbed by the big corps!

Paul is the expert in every area of NBL basketball and Europe basketball as well. WE must aver.

It certainly seems to me that the key here is the jammed shot. Does IInet have a contingency plan in case of this occurring? If so, then the 2nd shot is given and if it goes in pay the guy.cIf there is no contingency plan and the CA says have a 2nd shot, then bad luck donald duck. No prize and Hurls can take it up with the CA. The Sixers rent the gym out and that just clouds the issue. One assumes it is not a Sixers promotion however. rather an IInet one, run in conjunction with the Sixers. Do they run this same shoot out across all venues? If so, it's an Iinet problem and nothing to do with the Sixers. if it's a local Iinet / Sixers promo, then once again the issue is clouded. Read the T&C, as always. That is if there are any in the first place.

re: iiNet refusing to pay out on $5000 shot

the way hurls handles himself in general grates on me but he has every right to push for that money.

nobody forget that iinet are not just giving away money out of warm hearted fuzzy feelings for human kind,

it is a business venture.

they see $ put up as possible winnings in exchange for the promotion they receive when the little "show" is put on. they get this promotion whether you win or lose as part of the package and paying out sometimes is an inseparable part of that package. they cant say the "service" wasnt provided. it was quite obviously.

it would take a detailed clause stating that a jammed ball is a miss (and for the mc to be considered as acting on behalf of the sixers not the iinet company) for anyone to be confident of a favourable ruling for iinet.

i doubt they have any clauses much less something that detailed.

even then as iinet you know your gonna come off as arseholes over $5000.

even if a policy had been put in place and an insurance company has said no iinet would have been the first to hear about it and would have had the opportunity to run it past the appropriate people and pay it out and take it as money better spent than the 8secs of ad time it would have bought during ncis?

one has to think that it landed on someones desk and they shat themselves at going to their boss and bringing that idea up and just looked the other way.

i should also point out that the 36ers havent done anything wrong here.

the agreement to pay out the winner was by iinet.

any confusion in what to do by the mc is a mistake on his part but if you want to rely on what isnt even a part-time employee and dont properly inform him of any terms and conditions then your an idiot and a poor business man. iinet should have a marketing rep who liaises with the 36ers over these matters and that in turn should be handed onto the mc if he wasnt already addressed directly.

call it an educated guess based on history and surface information but i bet im close to the truth when i say that sfa of that has ever taken place between iinet, the sixers and the mc.

the amount of times ive lost on a coin flip just to go " nah, best 2 out of 3 man"

yeah,

you wouldnt expect that in a professional business world.

if you want something to be specific.

and the beauty of TT is they never tell the full story so it should be interesting.
have TT contacted the 36ers or NBL or BA or iinet or is this story based on Hurls kicking up a stink without actually being told he is not getting paid.

Hurls in the crowd is not actually a good supporter he abuses and annoys most around him however the shot was a beauty and if he feels he was promised it then I am sure there would be better appoaches than TT.

If it was me once it went on TT without facts I would not pay it, if he went through the proper channels he would probably have had much more success especially as from my understanding he has never been told it is not getting paid he has just been impatient

Man up, walk away and practice for the next time you get dragged out of the crowd. With support diminishing rapidly, the odds of getting pulled up again are increasing by the minute.

Anon #394741....unfortunately you have made yourself look like a Jackass as you are obviously referencing something else? I know who Jan Warbout is, his number and his position with the club...I can also tell you numerous other facts about him but we wont get into that because it is irrelevant.

I am also aware who Nathan Herbert is where he comes from, who he has played for in the past, what he does for a living where he is born etc but again....all irrelevant.

Nathan Herbert was in the crowd last night wearing a white t-shirt (not to be confused with Jan Warbout who was sitting on the 6ers bench in a 6ers uniform) and was pointed out by the court announcer, the crowd cheered given that he is an ex 36er. Hurls mate turned to Hurls and said who is he? Hurls said he was an ex Perth player and couldn't understand why the crowd were cheering him.

For the record, Herbert comes from Geelong and has played for 2 NBL clubs, the South Dragons and the Adelaide 36ers...being on the team only last season.

Therefore, I state you the "Jackass" for also being an uneducated spud who sprouts off calling people names more appropriate for themselves before checking facts!

Under the conditions you need to make A shot from half court to win $5,000.

If you miss you move to the 3P line and shoot for a Championship ball.

If you MISS the 3P you move to the FT line for a shot at a rubber ball.

Phil; iinet did not agree to pay out the shot. The rules have been clearly communicated to all and sundry; one shot and one shot only. MC should have known better, but made the decision himself. There was no consultation with the sidelines - there is no one on the sidelines to consult with!

These have been reiterated after some displeasure from iinet somewhere along the line about unhappiness when the shots were taken in the reverse order , I.e. the free throw went first, then three pointer, then half court; not sure if that was a 36ers game or not.

I am really looking forward to this story on TT, should be worth a laugh!

Anyone who says Hurls shouldn't get the money is saying so as a personal vendetta against Hurls because of some of the stupid shit he posts on here.

Simple fact is: not one person who has posted here would have said no thanks when offered another shot. Everyone would have done so and expected their money if it went in.

To say different is just a plain lie. Play the ball, not the man. The fact that Hurls is generally recognised on the forum as a bit of a tosser is not relevant.

He deserves his money. End of story.

You suggested that i have a low IQ and i am an "idiot", thusly i have no idea as to why i would consider the above to be an insult. Please do comment on my size i am sure you or anyone else could not invent a saying that i have not been subjected to in the past.

iiNet Quarter Time Quick Shot

Thanks to iiNet, Australia's New Number 2 in DSL Broadband, you could win $5,000 by making a shot from half court in the iiNet Quick Shot. Get your hands in the air, wave them around and make some noise now if you want the chance to win.

All you need to do is make a shot from half court and you’ll win $5,000 thanks to iiNet.

If they miss the half-court shot, move to the 3-point line and if they get this in they receive a Championship ball.

If they miss this, they go to free throw line to shoot for a rubber ball.

Take a shot in a game and if it gets stuck, you don't get given a second shot. Unfortunately for Hurls, his half court shot missed. The MC erred by giving him a second shot. As much as I would like Hurls to receive something for his second shot, iiNet are correct in not paying out as per the competition rules.

Those who exhaust all avenues - like Hurls, no doubt -and still get nowhere will only get their end from media exposure.

Any publicity for the NBL - even bad - is better than none!

Topic is simple regardless of opinions the facts are.

No one has said he is not getting it and at the time of going to TT he had not spoken to NBL or iinet.

That is as simple as it is.

It is you that should be crying spending your money on Clarke.

$5k and Hurls the least of your problems.

TT should investigate why you are still paying Clarke.

That is a bigger robbery than withholding $5k from Hurls.

lo.. so you know me personally do you? as for speaking to the proper people, i shouldnt have had to chase them and i certainly shouldnt have to have waited 2 weeks to hear anything from them. not that honest a bloke? i have not said a single lie either on here, or on today tonight.

alot of people think they know me on here, who dont know the first thing about me.

as for annoying the crowd? why? because i am willing to make noise and amuse myself at the game? if you cant handle some good old fashioned heckling. you will find channel 10 screens the games there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yep and they hadnt spoken to me either.. all i heard was from the 36ers after i had to call them.. them telling me there was debate.

i doubt anyone else has had to wait 2 weeks to hear back about there iinet shot!

dont wanna hear this 'second shot' crap. i was given the second shot so it counts.

Dear iinet.

It's not that I don't think you should pay out the whiny little child for his halfcourt shot, I think you should pay him out simply to save face and move on rather than tarnish the name of the Adelaide 36ers Franchise and the NBL. But in this case could you not as it is providing me with plenty of laughs via the interwebs.

Yours Sincerely
Mystro

As he is my brother i do have an obligation to "look after" him just a bit. i completely understand that at times he can be completely out of line with some comments and things so I DO understand what your issues are with him impersonally (i say this as you only know the digital Hurls not him personally) Please understand that he does not see the effects of what he writes here and on his behalf i apologise for some of his behaviour. in saying that it does not prove anything to entertain his ideas and for that all of those who have an issue with what he says here just don't reply. I could tell you why he does these things and it is a sad story but i cant right now or unless i have permission from him to divulge such information. Please be aware that things are not as they seem.

re: iiNet refusing to pay out on $5000 shot

2 things. When I was a kid, there were dobbers in school. No one liked a dobber. The one that didn't get his way, so he went to mum and dad to sort out problems with their mates. These dobbers went on to become tax auditors and parking inspectors. I don't like tax audits, and I don't like parking tickets. Truly, I'm embarrassed not only to share the planet with people who run to today tonight, but this small city of adelaide. Come on man...today tonight? Really? Regardless of the result, is 5k really worth everyone thinking you're a douche? You could have just been the hero that made the shot, but now you're the knob that everyone will talk about when you're not there.

Secondly, for the record, I think you should have gotten the 5k, as you we're offered a second shot. But if your problem solving skills include calling today tonight, you've got bigger problems than 5 grand. I blame your parents.
