Perth vs Townsville, Fri Nov 6th

Damo obviously out.
Crocs now 2-0 vs Cats this season

And yet...

Wildcats $1.11, Crocs $6.70
Margin 11.5

Will Jawai play?
Will $Beal snap out of his 50cent daze?
Will the officials let them play or overcall the game?
Will Conklin be as aggressive?
Will Stiendl's legs recover in time after a long flight?
Will Jett play two decent games in a row?
Will the Croc's confidence remain or will the martin incident have some impact on players?
Will a fast start by either team be enough, doesn't seem it ever is?
Will the crowd turn ugly???

So many more questions over this game, can't wait...

Hopefully Gleeson has calmed down and has his team focused on getting a much needed win as opposed to retribution for the martin incident. If i see Perth come out with a focus on evening things up with dirty play that will reflect poorly on Gleeson and i will be calling for his sacking.

-7.5 on Centrebet. At -5 I'd bet on Perth, but there's obviously something to the Dennis-vs-Wildcats thing that helps Townsville, and Martin missing won't help it.

I imagine the direct odds are impacted by bets coming in, but would the line be also?

Perth completely owned some pretty good Crocs teams when Gleeson and Woolpert were there, going 11-1 with a heap of blowouts in the three years prior to Dennis heading to Townsville.

Since then they are 6-4, with a number of close contests, despite the Crocs' budget being greatly reduced and the Wildcats spending more. Not quite a bogey team but certainly a match-up worth watching four times a year now.

Jawai is the one to watch in this game.

He might be a little sore but he will be fresher than everybody else on court who all played 48 hours ago and had to take two flights- one of them 4-5 hours.

Ogilvy destroyed them last week around the hoop, and with Schenscher still out Jawai could do some damage. Jawai was just starting to get going- last week or two he's started to look impressive.

Despite the Crocs impressive record against the Cats, I expect a double digit win by Perth.

What s-house reffing in the last few games (& I don't go for any of the teams).

Redhage pushes off Kay who's running close beside him and gets the benefit of the foul.

A guy runs into Young setting a legit screen and then runs into him again when Young has regained his feet and Young gets called for offensive foul.

Knight gets chased down by Kay who runs in front of him and the ref imagines there's contact and gives the benefit of the foul.

Conklin loses his balance and a foul is called in his favour.

Beal attacks Djuric (?) who shoves him with the body and with arms overhanging instead of straight up and no foul is called.


In Melbourne vs Sydney, guys cross the key between the time the ref hands the ball to a foul shooter and the shot being released and yet there's no lane violation called. Twice!


Wtf am I going to tell the kids I coach when we see such rubbish refereeing in our country's best basketball? Go watch NBA if you want to keep faith in the officials? Accept that refs often make mistakes, so keep your cool when they do cos it will be the ref's fault not yours?

Big flop by Wagstaff there.

You could tell. First bump was bigger but he kept his feet. Second bump was minor but he somehow went flying a metre across the floor. He knew Conklin would bounce back with another bump so knew he'd just have to fall to the ground.

Homicide asking Jett if Conklins hit was intentional just stupid questioning. What was he gonna say in reply! Ugly game went to script though Perth are so much mor interesting with Jawai on the floor. They will need to upgrade Prather to make a charge this season at this point. Not enough fire power offensively and with Martin out 3 months the easy shots will be harder to come by. Crocs held the close even though it was never really in doubt, but they will struggle against NZ and United with that particular lineup, especially if Jawai gets in any foul trouble.

Poor Crocs, like always when things tighten up more than not, it just shows they are one solid shooter down from being genuinely a threat.

Perth show glimpses of what they are capable of. Not sure I get Gleesons rotations though. Crocs have well exceeded my expectations this year.

I like what I'm seeing of Prather at the moment, if only he could shoot the 3 more consistently.

I don't think anyone from the Crocs is in a position to talk trash about Perths attendance. 10000 vs 500. Hilarious.

So, Conklin when interviewed "Yes, I'm as big a dick as everyone thinks."
Guy needs to get over himself, he was a "deserving" MVP last year, clearly the best Forward in the league. This year he stinks like yesterday's turd.

Very intense and angry game from a crowd perspective.

Very disappointed with the NBL's approach to the whole Conklin issue. If the guy was cleared to play, then he plays, END of story.
Instead we get the security perimeter, and refs clearly under instruction to call a foul everytime a Wildcat farted.
I gotta say, Bull is normally tough (but professional) on the Cats, but he seemed to be going out of his way to even things up. Gave us several generous calls, whilst Beker was on a one-man Wildcat Witchhunt. Interesting that he didn't reappear after the break.

Beal must be recovering from something. He started on the bench and again played reduced minutes (especially surprising in the absence of Martin). But he played like he had a point to prove.

Prather is working his way into something good, just needs to lay off the show-boating.

I'm starting to think Knight is still carrying that injury. Battles hard all night, but by the end you can tell he's struggling. Great effort but not quite where he was prior to the injury.

Foul count was 9-25 in Perth's favour. The refereeing was bad in general, sure, but still HEAVILY favoured the Wildcats, as per norm in that building.

Leon Henry's charge call was just plain stupid, and Wagstaff pushed a Croc out of bounds on a rebound situation in the 4th right in front of a ref, about 30 seconds after the against Jett for what should have been a no-call when Wagstaff got the defensive rebound in the dying minutes that led to penalty FTs.

I don't think the booing impact the crocs much at all tonight, but it definitely influence the refs.

Why does the foul count have to be dubious? Mix of intentional fouling late, Wildcats trying *NOT* to foul late, and the fact Crocs were pretty happy to shoot from outside while we kept hammering on in the paint.

Sure, a little home cooking along the way but game style has a lot to do with foul count. Didn't help that one of the Croc's key bigs was playing with half his brain on the game and the other half sitting with Bob Boosalot up in Row 10.

Not sure if Beal is recovering from something- he played poorly on Wednesday, got dropped to the bench and then improved his performance tonight because he had a point to prove. He still played 30 mins (maybe a bit under average for him).

Knight could still well be recovering from that shoulder injury which flared up a couple of weeks ago.

Crocs definitely struggled with big man depth tonight too, schensher out injured and Kay fouling out after 15 minutes, meant Conklin and young had to play big minutes.

Was great to see Djeric get hot late, he is such a streaky shooter and is the only croc other than steindl with that shooters mentality. IMo he's the guy who needs to step up to be that extra shooter the crocs desperately need.

If he gets 15 minutes a game off the bench he needs to be putting up 4-5 threes a game and hope he gets hot. The kid's still only 20 and has the tools to be one of the better Aussie shooting guards if he gets more consistent.

Here's what shits me about Gleeson. In the final minute or so, he subbed Beal out to put Hire in to get a stop and rebounds. No problem with that.

But after the Crocs scored it took him a few seconds to signal to Beal to check back in for Hire. It was liked a panicked afterthought or that he hadn't thought about what to do next, when there still heaps of time remaining.

It's a perfectly good strategy to help close out a game but it seemed he didn't know how to execute it properly.

@SC : He shuffled Hire and Beal back and forth for the final minute or 2. I counted atlas 3 exchanges. It was like something out of a NFL game. Hire in when Crocs were in offence and Beal in when Cats were(no doubt for his FT shooting).

At one point he subbed in Hire after Cats scored and then Crocs turned it over immediately so subbed Beal back in about 3 seconds later. Can't remember seeing that in an NBL game.

Yes, the eye test tells me that membership is down, which Marvin pretty much already told us at the start of the season, so no surprises there.
Hopefully things can still build as the season progresses.
I was always curious how having every game televised live would affect attendance numbers. Maybe that factor has affect Perth more than most places. Foxtel costs the same here as anywhere else. Can't say the same about NBL tickets though.

There was a clear emphasis to stamp "control" on the Cats early, as if they really feared the Cats would all start bashing Conklin. This was really evident from Beker early on. As I said, I think Bull actually went the other way, and Beker disappeared after half time anyway.

As for the subbing at the end, hardly Gleeson's fault. The authorities 20~30 years ago changed the definition of "deliberate foul" to allow this crap at the end of a game.

Attendance and Membership is clearly down.
Still a great crowd, and we can't be too whingey considering how other's are struggling.
The good news, is that if people want membership there are some good seats available.

4 fouls in the first quarter does not indicate any form of stamping control. Crocs got called for 6 btw. Maybe they're the ones who should be complaining.
