#059 a little knowledge is a very dangerous thing.
The ASC review has let to an in theory joining of all national basketball interests. Being BA, NBL, WNBL, SEABL and State Associations.
But in reality BA is still mismanaged, although with Sengstock showing improvement in some areas. NBL is still being run by the same people who lead to its demise. The Management of BA being shared between NBL clubs with personal financial interests and State Associations isn't working as well as expected and in all this WNBL has been completely ignored and SEABL is still completely independant.
As mentioned about the review of BASA wasn't at all a review. It was Bruce Carter, as appointed by his mate Foley, appointing another mate in Jackson to try and solve the issues of basketball in SA. Basketball Adelaide which Jackson wanted, doesn't exist. SA Country, SA Church still haven't decided what registration fees they're willing to pay for their members. Their member base, which was the basis for their power has now been proven to be grossly overstated yet they still have the same amount of power and yet no financial investment.
SA Country get $$ and development from BSA but contribute zero to the cost.
The review and structure Jackson put in place might have worked if those bodies were forced to follow the plan. Right now they have the power that Jackson gave them, without the responsibilities and financial implications that go with it.
The High Performance Review is a joke and wouldn't be required if BSA had the strength to sack an out-dated, no longer respected High Performance Manager with someone who could do the job properly.
That's why people are still asking for answers. And that's only 3 areas of concern. What about the mess surrounding ABA, Youth League/Reserves, Junior Competition Structures, State Champs, Facilities, Association Models/Domestic Competitions, Referee Development, Coach Development etc.
