Is Dazz back as an anon and trying to pawn off poor basic English so as to not get caught out?

Third party payments have always been around. Penney was on a decent one back in the day with the Breakers when he originally signed.

Not sure what the OP is asking?
Do some players get benefits from Sponsors? Yes they do.
Does the NBL monitor this? No.

If you're talking about the practice of players being allowed to earn a certain amount as wages from sponsors for promotional work, and up to the limit its not counted towards the salary cap, as I think is or was allowed in the AFL. Then no, the NBL has never scrutinized things that closely.

When there was still a salary cap, teams like the Wildcats and breakers were heavily supplementing it, but mostly with non cash benefits.

It has. But no one seems to get it.

I get it, but I don't know the ins and outs of a duck’s bum.

I suspect that some on here want to know what players x,y and z really earn in dollars and in pecuniary and non-pecuniary benefits.

Whatever the answer is, I don’t think any players would deserve that sort of scrutiny. None of them would earn enough to employ an NBA style entourage to surround and cushion themselves from the sort of scrutiny that full disclosure would provide in our little fishbowl.
