Cairns Vs Kings - Fearney tales 9/12

JVG has had a dig at Fearne for this clash. The rich Vs the poor.

Kings $1.74 Taipans $1.95

JVG: "Cairns do not lose at home, they are the only team to lose at home just once this year."
They are also the only team to have only played four home games this year.

I doubt Fearne would even raise an eyebrow to this story.

Following on from my dismissal of JVG's comments about "Fearny Tales", I do think the Snakes will do a good job of looking after their home court tonight.

Taipans by 9.

Maybe I'm just a totally biased Kings fan, but those fouls called on Whittington/Powell/Tommy inside looked pretty darn soft on the replay. The offensive foul on Powell and Prewster's reach were dumb, but the others? Not so sure.

Jawai just Maric'ed Lisch around the neck there, obviously a no-call.

What are Sydney planning on doing with the 3rd import spot? Are they replacing Blake? Or just riding the season out with who they have?

I don't think there's any indication what they're going to do, but I imagine it won't be any thing huge, just a backup PG/SG who won't bring all the attention that a Blake signing did.

Fearne is a big part of "15/16" Jawai, IMO.

Don't see Kings taking this one, we just don't have any mojo up in North QLD it seems. We've looked shaky ever since the first couple of minutes and aren't getting enough back-to-back stops to do more than drag ourselves back to 4 or 6 points before we turn it over or post up Tommy.

I think we've been a bit hard done by on the foul calls, but you have to give credit to Cairns - Fearne has these guys playing like a well oiled machine on both ends.

Just watched the last few minutes of the game, I'm wondering why Fearne didn't sub in Edwin particularly with the Kings running 2-3 zone? I thought he hit a few clutch 3s last few games vs. Kings.

Refs cost the Snakes the chance to win the game. Equally Cairns letting the Kings score 31 to 15 would never see the Snakes win.
Happy with the bet on the under dog. NOw for United to make the double.

The final quarter refereeing was a one-sided disgrace. CNS had 5 team fouls after about 2:30. The first SYD foul was called at the 8:00 mark once SYD had a 6 point lead.

Yeah go back and look at all the fouls Cairns had. Other than the Jawai non foul they were all correct. One sided yes, because they were fouls.

I've got no real problems with the fouls being called on CNS (except for the Jawai non foul you mentioned). But SYD were playing the same and not having anything called. Cadee and Lisch were fouling on most defensive plays but seem to be the NBL's golden boys.

Wrong. The Cairns fouls were so blatant it was stupid. The Kings may have fouled but no one will ever call those border line ones. The game has left the refs behind. I am sick and tired of seeing so many blatant travels NOT CALLED. Fouls not being called is equally as bad. NOw we have video revue because the refs can't get it right.
Then we have the NBL reviewing the tapes after the game, because a team complained about a call and then they cite a player. Simply because the refs either thought there was noting in it, or they simply missed it.

Cairns benefited early from calls and then were on the end of some late, especially the phantom foul on Jawai.
Their missed 3s and turnovers down the stretch had a bigger impact on the result though, they just didn't work out the zone well enough.

What a disgraceful refereeing performance!! Cairns whistled out of it in the last quarter.

Still that is no surprise as the NBL only wants the big city teams in the finals!!

The refs weren't the reason for those five turnovers and 2/10 3pt in the last quarter.

It's hard to get any sort of momentum though when the refs are blowing the whistle so much, especially once they were in the penalty.

How is that an argument? We had the ball but simply didn't make plays. We struggle against zone D, simple as that.

No one has complained about the bunch of first-half fouls and stop-start nature of the game. We were massively advantaged by that and all the calls Jawai was receiving.

You know who was good at managing an offence against any sort of D? Wilbekin.

Cairns has a representative on the commission (Beecroft) and Garrone is on the NBL board (or was last I heard).

Not sure where this whole anti-Taipans thing is coming from. Do fans really think the NBL is directing referees to call games against Cairns so they lose?

Pass the tinfoil...

I agree with the above comments from @snooch and @Manu Fieldel

I would add that although we got some ordinary calls in the last quarter, at least a couple of the first 4 fouls we incurred in that quarter (thus putting us into penalty from then on ) were careless in my opinion.

This was the 3rd game in a row where the Taipans have surrendered a 15+ point lead. The previous 2 games we held on largely due to big plays from Trice. I don't think we were playing as well in this game as we were in the other 2.

We have a very good and well balanced team but need to be better under pressure (particularly when we are having a lead chased down).

Thought Gaze and Vickerman coached extremely well against a seasoned pro in Fearne, I throw Vickerman in there because I saw gaze give him one big hug at the end which makes me think it was his idea to go zone D. Great game as nearly all are this season.

I thought Fearnes coaching from the start looked a bit odd.
He was over animated/erratic very early...
And what was the subbing of 3 players at once at a very crucial time.....maybe 20 up with 1 minute to go is a better time for that??

Not his best performance.
