Webster released within hours of Cotton return rumours...

Maybe Cotton is returning.

Shame, I was looking forward to watching this whole thing blow up in the Wildcats' faces.

I'm sure they won't have any difficulty in finding someone else to hose down with cash in his place though.

Like losing in straight sets after finish second? Never mind, at least Fearne got Jawai to lose 49 kilos this off-season...

@CT ha ha ha ha ha! Excellent appraisal of the situation vis a vis Trevor Gleeson. Love it!

Who knew that when you bought in with Webster and the Wildcats there'd be any sort of back door deals and shenanigans?! Ha ha ha ha! LMFAO.

I'm gonna laugh so hard if it turns out the 'Cats dumped Webster, he gets another gig elsewhere, then Cotton gets an NBA call up. Maybe they'll give JJ another go around (if HE doesn't end up in the NBA as well!)

@CT.

If you are going to talk shit about another team, hoping they'd fail and accusing others of throwing cash around, then prepare for the equally negative responses.

I think this is the 9th straight year that I can remember non-Cats fans planning on "LOLing so hard at their demise."

How did that work out for all y'all?

Overall, it would have been nice to see Webster in the NBL fresh and back to his old self again. Not sure what the contractual arrangements are but credit to the Wildcats for letting him go.

Thankfully for them its early days compared to the Hugh Greenwood episode. I recall Marvin putting in place something to prevent Greenwood from re-entering the NBL for another team for 3 years, wonder if the same will apply to Webster for 2?

This would likely mean that the Wildcats are back to needing three imports instead of the 2 before. So there will be no import insurance for Matt Knight if he gets injured.

If the off-season has been boring, it is getting more interesting now for sure.

Seriously doubt Cotton will garner any interest. He has been atrocious in the SL, Mitch Creek is having a better campaign in comparison and even Mitch is unlikely to secure a training camp spot at this stage.

I think it almost has to be Cotton related, I can't see them just letting him go for 'asking'. The club might have said something like:

"Corey, things have changed and we're bringing Bryce back now. This will move you to the bench and heavily impact your minutes. We'd love you to stay, but if you want to seek better opportunities elsewhere we understand and won't hold you back if you ask us to release you".

So what if the Wildcats keep winning year after year. Let's say they win the next ten titles. How does that stop opposing fans talking about them and heaping it on? The hate wold actually continue to intensify. Logic fail on that one. and LOL @ are you new here - exactly!

So? Your opponents naturally want their competitors to demise. Winning year after year doesn't suddenly negate this most basic trait of rivalries in sport. #logic

It means they don't give a shit that you enjoy seeing their dynasty crumbling because they just won ten titles!

If the Cats win ten straight titles, do you think laughing at them if they win a wooden spoon in year 11 will matter? No, because they just won ten titles! #logic #spastic

You interpreted this the opposite way to suit you. I'm talking about the opposing teams' fan's point of view.

It means opposing fans don't give a shit if a team wins, even if it were ten titles in a row, the "heaping" will continue no matter what, hence the "are you new?" comment above.

If the Cats win ten straight titles, do you think opposing fan's care if Cats fans think it matters they are tsill being laughed at? No, because no matter how many titles won opponents will still have you. It's a basic principle of sport - rivalry. #logic #spastic #retard #moron

Okay. But we don't care that you don't care. You assume we care if you care or not.

No matter how many titles the Wildcats win, some of their fans will remain suckers and take any bait that is tossed in their vicinity. The cycle of suckers and tossers is the one constant of the NBL through all of its ups and downs.

Agreed. You'd think the Cairns fans would be over the drubbing they received. Did you hear they finished second?

Not really. I like the Taipans fans as they seem to be a funny and intelligent bunch. Whereas the Cats fans are just another batch of the usual ultra defensive emotional type we keep having to deal with. I thought by being so successful meant they don't care what the rest of us think? Guess not.

I'd really like to see Webster succeed overseas (hopefully NBA) as it will really help the league and New Zealand basketball. He isn't the best role model but he's certainly got personality and I look forward to seeing what he does next
