If by outrageous ideas, you mean "trades" being a gamble worth taking, you're on the wrong track. The concept of trades just will not work in the NBL - the disparity between pay packets of players and the general public/living costs are just not great enough that you can make demands on any but the top tier. If you have other ideas in mind, let's hear them.
Why no Syd
No one organised enough and willing enough to take the gamble on the information provided (which is likely as much as can be provided).
Why no Bris.
Why isnt all proposed local buyers gone missing.
That doesn't make sense. If you're asking why there is no competition with Seamus for the 36ers/Dome, there is, just perhaps not at the same price. Groves is not willing (not allowed by a bank) to sell the venue below a certain price.
Why we happy to be owned by the tigers.
Doubt many are overjoyed but it's not the decision of fans unless they're putting up $xm themselves.
What TV deals are poss. are we tied into Fox and for decent amount of games not like last year.
Has been discussed to death and no one really knows as the league composition hasn't been finalised until recently.
Why we are recycling Hawks.
Because they scraped together the money, they're a foundation team, and at least they're interested.
Why has Sixers still not sold.
See above regarding Groves' price demands. Anyway, if it happens, today may be the day.
