Predict the penalty for Childress?

Brain freeze & i bet he regrets it. Would get 6-8 weeks in AFL.

I reckonn he'll get 8 games! $2000 fine.

Thoughts?

Im not sure if he will get that long. I think the charge for bringing the game into disrepute will get dropped, he may get 2-3 games for unduly rough play and 1-2 games for 1-2 for striking with an elbow. I imagine some of those games will be a suspended penalty so maybe 3-4 games with him only missing a couple of games. But that's just a wild guess

Hope he cops it back harder!!! I am a Perth fan but I would love to see him do that to Vukona? He would've got up and made him piss!!!

I definitely reckon the NBL should give a bigger fine and less games. Something like 2 games and $5,000. Gives the NBL pocket change and doesn't keep one of the leagues most exciting players out for long.

Of course, because you want tribunals to act independently on the interests of the fanbase ... where is Happy Days to talk governance for us?

He wouldn't have done it to Vukona, because Vukona isn't a dirty player who earns elbows to the chin.

How is a no-call a cop out? If it is a legal screen (which I believe)Childress ran into legal screen, the screen is designed to get his team mate (Beal) open. Childress didnt run through the screen thus putting Wagstaff at a disadvantage. The screen did what is was supposed to do. Just because there is contact does not mean a foul has to be called, not all contact on a basketball court is a foul. It's the same dumb argument that the foul counts must be equal.

The NBL is notoriously weak when handing out suspensions.

It will probably be 6 games suspension but 4 of those suspended so he will only have to miss 2 games.

So that will mean he will be back for the Sydney vs Adelaide game and will probably drop 30 on us in a winning performance.

Going on past tribunals, a suspended sentence will be the result.

I wouldn't say the NBL tribunal have been soft in the past, I'd say they have been wildly inconsistent.

Townsville Crocs import Casey Calvary got suspended for a game a few seasons back for staring at a referee, while guys get suspended sentences all the time for dangerous violent plays, so who knows.

I'd say 1-3 games would be fair.

I'd also say something that violent needs to be dealt with with a match suspension, not a suspended sentence, even if it's only 1 game. Do they take into account the fact that he was already ejected?

Well recent precedent of Ervin kneeing Goulding received a 2 match suspension with 1 suspended. I'm expecting 4 games with 2 suspended

We all know a fine is a waste of time for someone with his cash. But I think they will go with 6 games with 4 suspended and hopefully a fine that they can put towards a decent website.

What Childress SHOULD get: 4-6 games.

What CHILDRESS WILL get: 2 games, possibly even with 1 of them suspended and a token fine.

I'm predicting this will be a fine example of the NBL being a bush league with no balls.

What I am bracing for is a flurry of ridiculous comments about how the NBL is teamed up with the Perth Wildcats and it will somewhat favour the decision against Childress. Careful the aliens are amongst us . #conspiracy

No doubt about it he deserves a suspension and I would say that regardless of which team they played for.
3 games is my guess.
Hopefully then everyone moves on he is a great player who did something stupid but life goes on.

The toughest penelty for Childress would be to make Him spend a weekend with Carfino, on a lonely island. He'd come back a changed man!!

Curtley / Train - He should have ignored and deleted the troll comments. Obviously what the trolls want is attention and by posting what they said he is giving them the attention they want. Now probably more trolls will attack him.

All professional athletes and other famous people are targeted by trolls regardless of what country they are in.

Personally think he should be dropped for the whole season send him back to USA , what sort of example is he setting for young kids watching this sport. he has anger management issues which have no place in sport at all.
don't buy the brain snap, he was just pissed off, he's lucky he didn't hurt him badly

Yeah, the league needs him playing but the league also needs to consider acting appropriately on these matters. The punishment is inappropriate. This is a backwards step for the league.

Tribunal have done their job, or have they?

One week suspended sentence places additional onus on him not to do something like this again, fair enough.

The fine isn't going to hurt I don't think, but the NBL isn't known for its big fines either.

One week ban is interesting, I will explain...

I know this is the NBL, I also know this guy is potential NBA material again too, however if a junior in let's say the VJBL (because I know this competition and how it is officiated) did something like this the kid would have no way got away with one week.

I suspect any junior doing something like this would have been charged with several offences and probably would have missed months.

So, I am just asking what the message is here?
