Watching Sydney is the most exciting and probably doesn't do the sport justice, as they are the worst team in the comp.
But I think people should just be grateful/appreciative of the fact that basketball is on free to air.

They are obviously trying to promote the game so you just have to put up with it. At least they are showing so many games these days and on free to air.

I agree with Shotclock, frustrating as a Breakers fan to miss tough road games like the Hawks game last night just to watch Sydney clock up another loss. Was happy to finally see Mitch Creek play tho.

i watch as many as i can and i cant remember the last time i saw gold coast, or cairns? maybe i missed one or 2 of their games but ild hate to be one of their fans, wait forever for a chance to see them.

it is super awesome to have it back on free to air.

the decision to go to paytv nearly cost us the game in australia imo.

I love watching Sydney get beat.

I want them to start knocking on some other teams doors to give the 36ers a better chance at scrapping into the top four.

After last nights game, how long till they remove those two idiots on the sidelines and replace them with real coaches?

This seems silly, ppl who didnt go to the game wouldnt have been able to see the Sixers last night, so maybe not the best game to protest about lol.

Sadly TV is driven by ratings and Sydney has the biggest population, so they will always get alot of coverage. Doubt we can change that, Im just happy its on FTA and i dont have to pay FOX for their overpriced crappy service

Robilliard is the worst coach in the league by a long shot... He doesn't offer them much at all during the time outs. Basically the same thing you tell a team of juniors, communication on defense and run the lanes.

Goorg will be rubbing his hands together. This Kings outfit is terrible & Goorg will do a Dragon like - bottom 2 top in 12 months. Keep Kazoo get 2 quality imports. Retire Knight - he can hardly move & is embarassing himself. Magden seems workable but the rest is SEABL at best. Who knows what the future holds?

As for the kings ruling the airways - i've already started this thread!

Martin is a decent backup PG, but yes way too much sydney games on ONE HD. I would rather be watching sydney than nothing as in previous years so not complaining too much.

Bit harsh on Knight, orbit. I think he's done pretty well in his first few games back from a serious injury. His D was great last night.

NBL games are FREE TO AIR, dont whinge about this game and that. The whole 'market size' has been gone over, just accept it, and be happy there are close to 3 games a week on.

Half of me is screaming "Yay NBL is back on FTA and that's great for basketball in this country" while the selfish half is saying "this is bullshit, the coverage is pathetic and I'm sick of the Kings. Bring back Fox". If only ONE weren't so bad at broadcasting basketball...

Robilliard is the biggest mistake Turner made. If they were going to go with a budget squad they needed a quality coach to ensure they were at least competitive. Instead they went for a guy with ZERO head coaching experience at ANY level.

It's just embarrassing - his substitution patterns are awful, his offence predictable, and he has no idea about how to make adjustments in-game. He's a figurehead, nothing more, and its an absolute disgrace for Sydney fans.

Not so bad in NZ as we get all the Breakers home games live, def missing out on some awesome games though by saturating the league coverage with the cellar dweller Kings. They are improving as are the Blaze but there are so many more exciting to watch teams that have far better match ups that would be far more benificial to promoting basketball and the Nbl. OneHd need to have a bit of flexibility in their progrmming schedule to allow for games of interest. Great for basketball to be back on free to air tv in Australia but don't let that be an excuse to half ass it.

Would like to see other teams too, but not hugely fussed - have seen a lot of Hawks games, Breakers a few times, Perth, Cairns, etc. Just happy to get the games on FTA and quite like the Friday and Sunday schedule (usually out on Saturday).

They could at least put the kings in the same uniforms. Do they have two different designs or is it just my eyes.

That's right, a total of *one*.

Sure, there have been a few on TV lately, but it's hardly an injustice given how few there were early on. How else do you expect them to promote the sport in Sydney. Cut the Sydney-bashing, it's so 2004 and makes people from other Aussie cities look small-minded and petty.

LOL its so 2004 bahaha that comment alone makes me not care what you say! I think you will find most ppl on here have actually said they are happys in on FTA and arent bashing sydney, they are having a go at ONE HD's telecasts. ONE should have put a more even spread so that the Kings had some coverage all through the season, not the huge amount right now for one small period.

Couldn't agree more. Too many Sydney games. It really is a joke.

Having said that, when someone gives me lemons.....
