Why the NBL is still relevant

Hi,

The following article is a tongue in cheek guide for foreigners to WA but one point I thought Id point out:

*While AFL is the biggest sport, Perth is also the last place in Australia where the NBL is still relevant

Written by an AFL fan obviously. They always love to throw the boot in. But as soon as an NBL team decides to make a team in Brisbane, you get these worried articles coming out talking about the NBL taking potential talent!

Take the opinions of footy fans with a grain of salt.

I consider him more a blogger than a Journalist, but I guess Bloggers are defacto Journalists nowadays

He is probably most aptly described as a Satirist. A lot of his stuff is rubbish, but sometimes he tickles yer funny bone...

Melbourne is a potentially big nbl market, need a 2nd team there for next season alongside brisbane.

Poorly written crap. Hope the blogger in question has another income stream...

I've been more amused by some of the posts on here.

Always been relevant.

NBL is the national league for a major participation sport in our country. A sport which is global, the #2 team sport in the world behind the world game. An Olympic sport.

Media decided to ignore it mid 90s, but it is still running and now it's 2015. Mainstream media with their propaganda can fk off dictating to us what we should follow. Although most ppl are sheep so just tow the line but with the internet and new media avenues their influence is eroding.

I actually enjoyed it.
It's satirical, but also quite pointed in places.
The Mining Tax DID destroy the Labour vote in WA. The biggest Mining electorate actually elected a Nationals MP after the tax.
