SOS -- review and future
Although looking at the season you could say dissapointing season peformance by team and SOS group.
But not only do I applaud this group for saving our team but as a average supporter have seen a lot of positives as well.
Obviously the peformance of team is the biggest and was always going to be restricted but so was other clubs namely Woologong as example.
They and others got their recruiting right with a budget we didnt.
Could say they got there coach right too but reality was had to give Scotty another season .
With experienced coaches as ass.coaches to experienced coaches in NBL they were there and should have had one backing up Scotty.
Not too sure that Ballinger as good as he is was right captain as doesnt seem a leader or rise to the occassion ala Brett. Whilst Holmes not a star when fully fit adds a bit of fight to team which is required and maybe more likely to tell Gilchrist to pull his head in when needed.
Rather than drag this into a novel will just list positives and small explanation if feel necessary.
A Supporters - support - big improvement in info. and links
D Game Day Presentation - like cooling down Stadium early. -- Cafe etc ticketing etc improvements.
music and general entertainment slight improvement.
E Murray Magpie
F Upstairs meals great innovation and value for money . ( make it more Basketball show previous games or put flyer on team and game on tables etc ) is a idea.
G - General care for the supporter seems to be coming through.
O -- Obvious a lot more cant think of at the moment apart from my thanks to SOS for saving and apart from Silver Fox who likes to parade himself done it in a low key personal way.
Like many have got totally frustrated not so much the losing which hurts bad but the general way game played with no real purpose or direction.
And although agree should try to keep majority of team , changes have to be made and hard decisions reached starting with the coaching panel and do it promptly so new coach can recruit a team that doesnt cost the earth and works together with real purpose.
Guess also a reason for post is wondering how the SOS group has gone financially this season as is important in what direction club heads in the future.
Have they made - a profit -- a loss or broke even.
Next year might be better for corporate and sponsor response.
The unknowns are of course the fate of the dome with Bank takeover and the fate etc of one of the owners as reported in todays paper.
We can only look forward with hope and continue to support
