ONE: "NBL gave us short notice of finals schedule"
So Channel Ten / ONE are now claiming that the NBL gave them such short notice about the NBL Finals schedule that they had no choice but to delay the finals games to eleven PM (Perth/GC) and 12:30 AM (NZ/TSV), making them virtually unwatchable to anyone with a day job.
The finals schedule was set on 23rd March, which gave ONE two weeks to make this work, and they still say it's due to "short notice". I would also assume that the league would have had an adjustable preliminary schedule prepared well before then.
Such a cop out.
I never thought I'd find myself nostalgically wishing for an "early" 10:30 delayed telecast...
