Heard Dean went down to the bank to see how many funds were in store for next season. He was shocked to hear they spent their entire 8 year budget to buy the last 3 titles!!!

I think there are a lot of people now giggling with the thought in their head "told you so!" Several clubs already in trouble after financial mismanagement relating to player salaries (predominantly imports). But no BAdel knew better.

Exactly, west seem like a tight core group. Southern seem to have great sponsorship and unless Alex is really pissed off, who cares about rest at North, they'd be bottom 3 without him.
Does anyone know when the Summer reserves season starts, heard they're going back to 13 game season. Would imagine most squads would start training soon so the coaches should get announced soon.

Southern to fall off & miss finals? North as stated above will be fine as long as they have Alex, his teams have never missed finals. West would want to retain Kubank and Thomas to stay competitive or get Spear back.

Think South and Sturt will be the big improvers.

South men's reserves have started and trainings already look good. Noticed a few peeps from other clubs out there.
Women started a few weeks ago and they have picked up a couple of players as well. South women are starting from a long way back but look like they will be competitive this season.
Obviously two new coaches for the programs as noted previously.

And what is the issue with Hatchard moving clubs ? Most senior players have or will at some point change clubs for whatever reason that is relevant to them. Its life. If you watch anything other than local basketball then negative comments about player movement is hypocrisy because you are watching players who have all made moves that fit or give opportunity or was the only opportunity at that time. Stop making judgements for the sake of it and get a life or at least think beyond what is in front of your nose and expand your ideas and understanding of moves in isolation or as part of a bigger picture. Be smart and think a little. Should I write a list of all players movements in the local comp and your movements perhaps too ?

Wow you are really excited you think you got me and believe loyalty is that important that it controls your life and actions and lays judgement on others. Clearly moves by others has had a negative affect on you my friend as you are in here and they are not. Sad for you living in your bubble of your own reality. And no I am old and played for one club and retired but have many friends in many clubs and all make decisions that are relevant to them and the environment they are in. Not everyone is in the same situation and that is how life rolls. It is you that has been hit with a raw nerve targeting one player about their move. Maybe it is the likes of you that are behind their decisions to move. Good luck to them, not everyone has been as lucky as you so it seems person who emphasises with a capital S.

News from Woodville womens first training last night, the new coach was unveiled to them and used his initial speech to inform the ladies that they would be coaching themselves until January.

"If you need me, I'll be on the golf course", were his words.

Interesting take considering the state of the Womens program recently. I'd have thought it would be a perfect opportunity to take charge now and really try to get those ladies working to his game styles etc.

Until they get a coach that wants to take Womens basketball serious, unfortunately I fear for that side of the club.

Tracey has no juniors to develop. That ship sailed long ago. No u18 girls team last year, hardly have one this year. Forestville had 4 u18s playing PL - 2 of them starters. (Not sure the next crop will be as good though). Can t blame Tracey for poor club management and development. Might have to poach juniors from somewhere else to get the no cost players - just like many of the other clubs. Be thankful they aren't Woodville!

The whole State thing is such an elitist club. Been stale for too long and needs new ideas and fresh blood in there. Instructions on how to run teams is sent from top and trickles down, is flow still the in thing???
High performance manager should have a 5 year contract and then should be replaced, then they can go off and not have a conflict of interest at private schools. Problem with a lot of clubs is that committees have no idea about basketball, see on a resume something about being involved in a state program and think they have to be amazing coach. Shudder to think how one of the new PL coaches will go, can't coach his way out of a wet paper bag but gets hired. Too many sycophants at state all worried about brown nosing than actually bringing in new perspectives.

That Uni team would make finals in reserves.

Speaking of, will teams suit up their real teams on Tuesday or will we see a bunch of YL guys in ressies?

Jonnek came a long way being developed by Hawkes. From no-one to starter on a very decent program. Always been talented but went to another level while at North.
Sad to see him put money first. Will be interesting to see how he goes at South.

Second to none? Came runners up last year with 3 6ers. That's one. And how many other 2nd place finishes. Maybe coach at a club without the budget of eagles and with integrity of not qualifying a player that got in with a technicality.

The coaches obviously think Maclean is best based on COY voting.

Hoppo just committed to a D1, that means he's going to be sitting out the next four PL seasons. Don't see the men making finals without him.

Not SEABL or QBL level but better than all other leagues. The WA league is living off reputation. Both SA GF teams would have easily won WA or Big V for that matter.

The bottom teams in SA would struggle to win a game in any league tho.

Ok so without getting too partisan or specific, the league is roughly comparable to WA SBL but maybe less even from top to bottom? (top is better but bottom is worse)

In reality, if south pickup a couple of really good imports to go with Mckendrick and 1 or 2 role players that would put them above centrals and woodville. Lions nothing without their imports and interesting to see fall out with woodvilles appointment of coach.

Walkout at Southern Women Premier League.

At least 8 players leave after telling the Club they would do so if Tracy reappointed. President reappointed her and now they have left.

President also has been removed.

Its a long way back from this.

From what I can gather Tracey doesn't realise most of the girls play for the love of the game and a bit of pocket money, expects full time commitment, video review sessions, you name it, not sure it’s 8 first team players, mckendrick and Kinross gone

I could see it being true, she's probably picked up a lot from her time with the 6ers and may be trying to implement a bit too much. On the other hand 8 walking out is huge and probably points to something bigger.

Of course all clubs scout. However, the good clubs recognize this isn't a full-time gig, or close to. It's a fair commitment considering most don't get paid more than their fuel costs.

premier league games during season, possibly reserves or 23's also then train twice a week, anyone expecting video review sessions on top of this, plus work or uni has rocks in their head.

North Women definitely had scouting reports for other teams. Not put together by the players though. Video sessions during the finals.

I think it probably paid off for them.

Why is it bash Tracey. She was appointed by the club. She brought far more professional attributes to the program. Players happy to play for her but something not apparently right now. My how worm has turned. Clearly some players looking for greener easier pastures.

What professional attributes did she bring? Recruited heavily with no junior development at all. Four years with a stacked team and not enough to show for it.

The worm hasn't turned its just the players are fed up with her and are now showing it by walking out or simply just quitting basketball.

So if it hasn't turned then explain what has happened to the worm? The worm has maintained its course but the course was incorrect to begin with? Was it the wrong type of worm? Did the worm get dug up and used for fishing bait? Did someone throw some Combantrin into the mix and incapacitate the worm?
The people need answers.
