Who are Anshila and King for the Senators?
Haven't seen any mention of them elsewhere.

Nor have I seen any confirmation of Barrow or Roberts at the Redbacks.

re: WA SBL - February 2018

Stirling are waiting to hear the verdict on Cody Ellis regarding minutes. League source tells me they are applying for special dispensation on the grounds that he had a whole bunch of DNPs. One would assume it will be granted too.

They also confirmed Davis meaning the Stirling starting lineup can look something like:

PG Wroe
SG Davis
SF King
PF Ellis
C Anshila

B - Litterick
B - Coburn
B - Bruton
B - Thwaites
B - Thwaites

If Ellis can't coach that team to a semi final, then you really have to ask the question. 1x Wildcat 1x 36er 1x Hawk 2x Imports. Have the option of Vague too though I’m hearing he’s making a return to Cockburn OR junior club Willetton.
Good sauce.

Caleb Davis is a 4. He's a not particularly mobile 6’8!!! Hearing that he’s making some good money though. Stats in SA were ok but %s were poor. Not sure what kind of player he will be in SBL.

Theirs to lose.

2. Buccs
No pure PG keeps them from No.1.

3. Redbacks
Is there enough ball?

4. Senators
Top-heavy could be their downfall.

5. Tigers
Diagne is no Turner.

6. Hawks
Loaded backcourt.

7. Giants
Have a nice first 7 or 8.

8. Flames
Hire's dodgy leg is a worry.

Grand Final - Wolves vs Redbacks
Champions - Redbacks
MVP - Sharpe (Giants)
Wooden Spoon - Eagles

At the moment their starting-5 is looking like...

Diagne
Bowie
Scott
Black
Armour

Nothing to write home about and weaker than last year.

If there are other signings (that nobody else seems to know about) then let us know, otherwise go back to school.

Roberts - paid at least $500 per
Vigor - paid at least $500 per
Redhage - paid at least $1000 per
Lako will be getting paid too no doubt, $300?

thats $3600 per game * 26 = $93600?!?!

PER THE SBL BYLAWS : "The total player/coach salary cap for the SBL will be sixty thousand dollars ($60,000) per team per year."

So Perth are blowing the Salary Cap by $30k and we all gonna sit around and be cool with that? Even take $100 off each of those above, at its 20k over.

Durnin

England

(Bit thin but a playoff hope)

Although it is most likely it will be:

Lay
Leary

Durnin
Weeden

Douglas
Woods

Harper

Lacko cheating the system, just like last year but more blatantly this year. Sbl never check the books so they'll do what they do. All teams might as well do it, make it with no cap. Besides he has no real respect either, all the sbl coaches tolerate his ego at best. He was kicked out of wildcats practice cause they know his full of it, and they had an open day with 700 people attend the following week. Applied for under 20s state team, didn’t get it. Let them burn money buying sbl championships. Then once the well dries up and he’s one more championships than lakeside, he can be the next Andy Stewart working around like his important.

Giants - legit 3x imports
Suns - big jump, maybe 3 or 4 spots. Davis and Belger alone are to be feared.
Lightning - add Prue, Isenbarger and Cooperwood. good juniors, maybe a place or two.

DOWN
Hawks - Monroe looks ave and DT is getting old.
Slammers - no comment.
Cougars - no Billups.

SAME
Wolves - not down so not moving.
Redbacks - not down so not moving.
Flames - downgrade on imports but add Hire
Eagles - not up so not moving.
Magic - not up so not moving.
Tigers - downgrade on Turner but more ball for offensive studs Scott and Bowie

He will prove people wrong.Cummings is the big pickup. He has vastly improved from last season. Add in their young guys improving, the do it all vets and some leadership from Daniel Thomas and they are going to be better than some are predicting.

re: WA SBL - February 2018

A potential starting 5 for hawks, from what I can tell it's more dangerous than people think.

START
Thomas
Cummings
Purser
Monroe
Carlwell

BENCH
Smith
Cassir
Hickert
Clark
Hayto

Cummings, Purser and Carlwell are all scorers in their own right. Thomas can still score on any night when needed and Monroe from what people have said is a hard worker and will scrap to get points.

The big jumpers this year will be Joondalup. They will be in first all year and pending injuries will probably win the chip with the squad they have put together this year. Domination is in store for that club. New arena, New Jerseys, New players, New Championship in 2018. WOLFPACK

re: WA SBL - February 2018

In regards to the SBL's Restricted Player Policy, actually knowing and stating the facts is something that is always a good start. And those facts are....

(1) The cut-off date for NBL player minute calculations is deemed by Basketball Australia, this year it was January 15th.

(2) NBL minutes played (or not played) after January 15th have no bearing on the restricted/non-restricted status of a player.

(3) As of January 15th, Greg Hire had played 10.3 NBL minutes per game, taking him over the 10mins per game threshold. This means he is a 'Restricted' player with all clubs in Australia, except the Joondalup Wolves.

(4) As of January 15th, Cody Ellis had played 7.8 NBL minutes per game, meaning he is under the threshold, and can play 'unrestricted' with any club in Australia.

It can't get any simple than that, and those who still think something's wrong obviously have no idea.

As a sidenote, as of 2019 the NBL minutes threshold will increase to 15 mins per game, which will bring it in-line with the women.

No people aren't debating the facts. Debating the policy. If SBL kept up with rest of Australia we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

All of the facts are known. Your bullet point structured argument doesn’t make you any more knowledgeable.

It’s just interesting that under their system it has probably worked out that they’ve got it the wrong way around. You can’t argue that over the course of the season when there is more of a sample size, Hire would be an unrestricted player and Ellis would be restricted? And it’s not even really close...

And little H. You must know everything. Apologies mate

Hire was signed under the pretence that he was Restricted. And Ellis was signed under the pretence he was unrestricted. Stirling did their due dilligence, Rockingham are now playing catch up.

At some point the league needs to draw the line and say, this is the cut off. Otherwise it implicates all teams when the actual season starts if the goal posts are constantly changing.

Hires restricted, probably skip Finals too. Deal.

re: WA SBL - February 2018

It's interesting supporters of the league don’t want more good players in the league. I love that Cody is unrestricted and Stirling can sign two imports on top of that. Love the Ross signing at Gerro. Have always loved Mandurah with Mully as an Aussie and then still able to get 2 imports. Wish Perry lakes would do same with Carlwell. Love that the Redbacks are stacked and that Etto has a team on paper that almost makes going to watch them worth putting up with his unjustified ego. It’s great for our league. More talent, especially high level Import talent the better IMO. So I’d have no issue with Rocko signing an import. They’re probably still not good enough but would be interesting to see what they get.

People fighting it obviously are scared or don’t want our league to improve. Common sense should prevail for the better of the league but who knows.

Looking forward to the season.

Top 8: Wolves, Redbacks, Hawks, Flames, Bucca, Suns, Tigers Senators in no particular order. Is a good 8 teams. (Should scrap the rest of the comp - but that’s another topic all together)

Carlwell can't become an Aussie with the snap of his fingers. Hawks and Carlwell have to follow a process set by the Government. If he could do it that easy he would already be an Aussie. It’s not like they aren’t trying to get it sorted.

Anon, I don't think it's the fact that they don't want good players in the league, it's the changing of the goalposts after the rules have been set that is the issue.

You shouldn't be able to sign a player and then lobby to have his status changed, otherwise every other club could have done the same.

When rules change after clubs have recruited, that's when people get annoyed.

I like the restricted player rule for NBL players, especially those who get constant court time.
It's stops situations where one club monopolises players as well as getting imports, which has happened in the past.

good luck to the clubs that get off their arse and recruit quality players into our league.
the giants and buccs have been doing it for years - every year they bring in someone who is an exciting player , the slammers have done it in recent seasons as well.
you have to spend a little money to make some money
if you can fill your stadium each week it pays for the recruiting you have done.
our pool of quality Australian players isn't that good compared to the eastern states only because of population, so for clubs who bring in eastern states players as well good luck.
well done to the redbacks, giants,buccs, flames,wolves, they have done a awesome job with promoting and recruiting in the off-season.i think the clubs to watch this season in both men and women are stirling and wolves.

signing hire as a restricted player still has its benefits
1. he is a known quantity both on and off the floor. he is a dominant SBL player and a high character guy around the team and the club (ie no Vinny Zollo's)
2. you don't have all the bother with flights, accommodation, visas, clearances
3. he is a mayor

Wildcats trying to make him 3 man (which 100% understand thats his role to make a living at NBL level).

But Rocko need him in the paint not standing around shooting jumpers and 3's.

SBL has actually got a great product in terms of the talent on the floor. It is at the very least on par with the BigV or even above. But the league administration and club marketing is where it is let down. Some clubs do a great job of marketing and promotion which lets face it only involves a bit of social media and the like. The SBL website has gotten worse and worse over the past few years.

Its the SBL, its a semi-professional league, expect a semi-professional approach. Go back to watching Bleacher Report edits.

The dude is well well past overdue, he wouldn't be a factor in the league in the SBL. Whilst he was here at times he was a complete non factor. The SBL product is much better than given credit for on court. Some great talent. I agree the SBL need to do a much better job of staying on top of media and social media production.

Just watched Chris Cedar on you tube score 14 points in 3 minutes. My god check the pace of the game and the standard. Awful. There is a guy in there with ginger hair who looks like he's 45 years old and has a belly on him. What a joke.

One is restricted, one isn’t...

I understand there’s a policy in place. But surely each case is addressed independently. Common sense is not so common.

Interesting league with interesting people making the calls behind the scenes. Clearly with no interest in making the league better.

Rocko can’t have another import to go with their largely inexperienced team but Perth can sign people using an academy no one cares about to hide the $$$ ... interesting league, interesting decisions.

re: WA SBL - February 2018

Re Greg Hire & Cody Ellis, I don't know why it keeps coming up and is questioned....

- The cut-off date for NBL player minute calculations is deemed by Basketball Australia, and this year it is January 15th. Same goes in the SEABL.

- NBL minutes played (or not played) after January 15th have no bearing on the restricted/non-restricted status of a player.

- As of January 15th, Greg Hire had played 10.3 NBL minutes per game, taking him over the 10mins per game threshold.

- As of January 15th, Cody Ellis had played 7.8 NBL minutes per game, meaning he is under the threshold.

When it comes to anything like this, a line has to be drawn, and has been drawn (on January 15th).

Just because Greg Hire gets injured and plays less minutes after January 15th, and just because Cody Ellis' teammates get injured and he plays more minutes after January 15th, doesn't mean you move that line.

And if you did then it would be Stirling's supporters kicking up a fuss, and not Rocko's.

As a sidenote, from what I have heard the Flames recruited Greg knowing full well he would likely be restricted.

You're right, they should leave it until after the grand final in late March.

No, as that discriminates against players not in the playoffs.

The two biggest criticisms I've seen in this thread is that it's unfair to have teams recruiting players with no way or knowing if they're going to be restricted or not, and that the cutoff is too early.

God you guys are a bunch of babies. Clubs want it this way so that they can plan for who they sign and when. If they have to sit around and wait for the end of the season then people already at the club are in limbo and so are potential imports.

And before you come back with 'duh no it doesn't have to the end of the season, it can be another date'.. well then that would just be another arbitrary date then wouldn't it you dumbasses.

re: WA SBL - February 2018

There is a very legitimate reason why the cut-off date is early/mid January - And that is so teams (SBL, SEABL etc) can plan their recruiting, particularly with imports.

If the cut-off was, say, 1st March, and a team wanted to recruit an NBL player who is hovering around 10mins per game, then they would have to hold off on signing an import until the Aussie recruit's minutes were confirmed.

As someone who has been involved in recruiting imports for many years, I can assure you that the last thing an SBL team wants to be doing is looking for imports two weeks before the season starts, after the NBL player they wanted ends up averaging over the threshold. Particularly considering it can sometimes take up to 2 months to get an import cleared to play.

The mid-January cut-off gives an SBL club time to change tact if the Aussie NBL player finishes above the threshold, and they decide to get an import instead.

the sbl changed the decision with corbin wroe, if i was rockingham i'd be at least giving it a shot with greg hire and reminding them they've done it before

They didn't really change anything for Wroe, they just used sensible math.

SBL season is too long, shorten it like they are doing over east which will help move the cutoff date later.

Now we are complaining about the season being too long? My god, lets just get rid of the season all together then yeah. Apparently no good products, the season goes for too long, lets do everything over East is doing.

I imagine the Perth Wildcats use that similar approach. Big Dog Trev sitting there saying we better do what the Sydney Kings are doing this year and lets replicate that cause WA doesn't know how to do anything basketball wise.

Like seriously get off the East Cock PE*%S and stop commenting if you have no general interest in the SBL.

It actually make sense to shorten the season to less weeks Just have more double headers .
You would get more NBL players willing to play if the season was shortened it would make the competition better and you might Even see a better D1 comp as more experience players would want to play that For a longer comp.
It's does burn players and staff of these teams out as your pretty much getting a 2month break between end of season and preseason .
That doesn’t include planning meeting and recruitment

Wildcats don't have to copy teams from over east. They just make their squad up with players from there. Where do you think Trev and Matt Neilsen are from? All that goes against your argument.

You cant shorten the season, its already cramped enough for the country teams.
Currently the Giants play 7 weeks on the road and one of those road trips is a home game and away game at Gero.
IF you shorten the season with the same amount of games it would mean a double header at home for Gero and The Giants (Friday night? or Sunday? Which team will do that, my guess is NONE), make the country teams play 2 triple headers on the road? I don't think that is at all fair, or play one home game and 1 away game for 3 weekends. Logistically this is close to impossible and putting a huge extra expense on the already heavy finances it takes to run the country clubs.
It was the players that wanted the break at Easter so that put the pressure back on the country clubs to fit an extra game in on what used to be a one off when Gero played the Giants.
If you wanted to shorten the season then you would have to go to confrences and play less games, we saw how that worked out in the 90s. A shambles I say.

or do as QBL and play triple headers. And don't say you can't do that, as the QBL travels further distances than the SBL.

Doesn't bother me. If you simple folk that keep your league from progressing.
