Hopefully Boti is right and Marty will be sacked after we lose both games this weekend.
Then we can start fresh next week with a new coach and a new import.

The Sixers cannot afford to lose to Sydney (either of the 2 games in 2 weeks) there is daylight between 4th and 5th already.

ADL would not be able to catch up.

Of course we can't afford to lose to Sydney Marcus.
Just like we couldn't afford to lose against Townsville 3 times, or drop a game after leading by 21. The playoff ship has sailed. Marty has between 2 and 14 games left as coach of our great club. Might as well be 2 so we can make an educated decision on our new coach for next season. The last 2 coaches have been poor selections, let's give someone an opportunity to prove themself this time before we throw 3 years at them.

Something not right here. Perth sign Dunnigan on December 1, he then plays at home vs hawks on December 7, six days later. Melbourne sack Braswell November 5 and Jonny Flynn is signed, cleared and plays on November 9 against Adelaide 4 days later.

ADELAIDE sign Scott Christoferson on December 19, SIX DAYS BEFORE Christmas. Yet it's now January 4, sixteen days later and he STILL is not cleared.

Something stinks.....

Good thing Leeann Grantham is leaving because she is HOPELESS. All this is HER job. Not prancing around bossing people around on game night like I see from the stands each week. Heard from a few friends in soccer she was terrible there, everyone who worked with her practically partied when she was sacked, oops thats right she resigned. Pretty obvious why she never stays at any job for very long. You can't cover incompetence for long without people realizing its not everyone else...its you.

Please just get it done. We hear how good this guy can shoot, we all want to see it. Sure could have helped last weekend. 2 x 3's each game from him and we win both.

Good points raised above. Maybe Jai can ask the CEO why other clubs have had a quick turnaround and the 36ers are still waiting.

As Nazz mentioned this should have been wrapped up before Christmas.

This delay has potentially cost us the last 2 games although if Scott hit a few shots he probably would have been benched anyway and then onto reduced minutes for the next game ala CJ.

Surprised that Clarke still has a job. Never seen so much incompetance and poor decision making.

Should have stuck with CJ. I guess Clarke had to look after his pet players (Cadee, Weigh, Johnson, Crosswell) despite their failures this season. Never been a fan of people looking after their mates.

I guess management are just as incompetant as Clarke

Every case is different.

What on earth makes other people on here think they are not doing all they can. We are not the only people that want him out there. Fair chance the people paying him want him to play to. I would if I was paying him.

Why are you so defensive? If you go to a restaurant and the food is shit, you have every right to say so. Doesn't mean you could cook it better, but you know it’s wrong and you say so.

The fact that Perth loses a player to injury and then has a replacement import within a matter of days is what we see. Then we see the Sixers coach blame his incompetence on a player, sack him and weeks later the replacement still isn’t cleared to play. That’s what we see, we know that isn't right and we say so. We aren't saying we could do it better, but we know the professionals being paid to do so, should!

CJ will be glad to start playing for the more professional Knox Raiders soon lol.

CJ got the 36ers wins when he got minutes. He did great against Perth and had a good game against the Kings when they won.

I think the frustration is guys like Cadee, Weigh and Crosswell get big minutes even when they are playing poorly. CJ has 18 points in about 18 minutes and wins the game and then in the next barely hits the court.

That is just very very very poor coaching.

So if you can't do better Spinner and don't know how to do it how do you know they have done wrong. Because someone at a different time and a different case got through quicker. ???

As I have previously said it was mentioned upstairs after a game than a guy had been secured and then a family member took ill and he pulled out to stay with family.
So Scott was not straight after CJ that would mean when this fell through they then had to find another replacement and then of course with Creek down it looks more desperate.

Oh by the way. Thanks for your latest post CJ.

I wonder if any thought went itno a temproary contract with an ex/retired NBL player until Scott was cleared. Sack CJ, bring in retired NBL player on 3-4 week contract (forgive me NBL laws prevent these contracts) and then say thank you for your service but Scott is now cleared.

Now who retired last year that might have been worth a paid 3 week holiday in Adelaide.........Seriously not sure if there is anyone but it was just a thought.

Embarrassing. Oh, what has become of the great 36ers.

I wonder how Lennon Cooper's DVD for the decade commencing 2010 is looking at the moment?

Instead of Title Town, Titanic may be more appropriate.

Each case is different...yet this is the longest I can ever remember an import being unable to play in the history of the NBL.

Front office mirrors the coaching...working hard...just don't have what it takes.

I guess failing to accept mediocrity makes me a non-supporter like Spinner.

So Camel, what if Sixers said right we need time to find a new import. Ng/Herbert how would you like $10K to play 3 games under the current systems which would not be too different to what you played in last season.

I think Ng would have been a handy replacement for 3-4 games until Scott was cleared.

Again not sure if this is possible by NBL rules

I hope you are not suggesting that Leann should have the power and influence to expedite GOVERNMENT proceedings and due process.

The club has submitted the paper work, probably made a few calls but thats it, they cannot go and get the Visa stamp and stamp it for SC themselves.

Unfortunately such things take time, especially over the Xmas break.

I have worked in a public service department before, the level of service between it and a profit seeking entity is astonishing.

I think to blame everything on the CEO is just poor form.

Lets accept that it was unlucky for Creek to go down during this time and make the best of the situation.
