Melbourne v Brisbane Nov 18

With Melbourne there is a surprise around every corner. They nip over to NZ, travel to a place that is almost as cold, windy and grey as The City of Soy, then beat the Breakers.

Brisbane have had their feet up this round so far, but that might not mean much. This is the first time this season these teams have met and so much has happened between drinks. This will certainly be a test of their skills after a perfect score last round.

Gliddon with have his hands full with the CG43. You would think Melbourne has the advantage in many match ups with Jason Cadee having nightmares about what and Ware his opponent will do today. Bring a chair and a whip Jace, you might need it to tame this lion.

The Reuben might be the X factor late. You would expect the tired legs of Melbourne to be the telling factor as they drop off to cramp in the 4th, but a fierce home crowd will push them to the limit.

It's on Go, so you can grab yourself an organic soy latte, put flowers in your hipster beard and watch the game in the comfort of your home and feel like you are actually in Melbourne in the safety of your own home with the Apex gang.

Close tight game, but Melbourne to squeeze the toothpaste tube right at the end in a thriller.

If that is your way of saying that Jack writes the best game threads then yes I agree.
Cheers Jack. Your creativity and effort is always appreciated. Unlike the miserable knobs who have nothing better to do that talk shit about someone for no good reason.
I hope your day picks up soon anon #211 you are clearly having a tough one.

Go Bullets

With Cadee's matador defence, whats the market on Ware scoring 30+?

What's with the nickname 'bubbles' for goulding? Any time a boomers player/coach refers to him that's what they call him, but I don't think I've ever heard anyone else use the nickname

Goulding's nickname has been Bubbles even going back to his Gold Coast days. Joey used to call him that in interviews regularly.

I have no hope for Australia ever winning medals as long as Lemanis is coach. If he can't realise that Cadee shouldn’t of been playing in crunch time, how bad is he going to fuck Aus up

Last thing I'll say about the refs. These two absolute muppets Mayberry and Aylen are some of the worst I've ever seen. Yet they are apparently our best two - Mayberry is head of refs I believe and Aylen keeps getting ref of the year. I can't imagine there are too many youngsters with whistles in their mouths dreaming of referee stardom so we are probably stuck with them but sheesh... they suck.

PS - this Europcar referee review on the NBL website is an absolute joke too. The outcome for every call they choose is "Correct Call." Notice they didn't review any of the ambiguous calls in the Perth v Melb game, which actually ultimately decided that game. It's a bit like the special kid in glass drawing blue people and getting an award for artistic ability.

I told you all, the officials are not referees in the NBL.

They are nothing more than home town cheerleaders

Lol at the very end of the broadcast on NBL TV during what would have been be an ad on fox, you could hear the commentators mic'd up still and talking about the screaming lady to the producers

After today's effort, I look forward to the next game seeing Lemanis reward Crudee with 35 minutes whilst Holt gets scraps.

Why did Gliddon get a tech for flopping, when if there was no contact both he and Goulding ended up on the ground? Surely both get techs...

Anon #307 they review the Ware - Norton call and deemed it incorrect on the Europcar review.

Rhea - it wasn't a tech foul cslled, it was a normal foul on Gliddon for contacting goulding after the shot.

And you couldn't hear the screaming woman at the game _ i was about 8-10 rows behind her - it just was easily picked up by the tv mics because she was right beside the tv commentators
