NBL 19/20 opening game?

I reckon first game should be Melb. United vs South East Melb. Pheonix. Would be great for publicity.Thoughts?

No I think you have to build form and anticipation for that kind of thing. People like to talk about form of teams coming into big matches, etc. I'd probably start it around round 4

I reckon before we get the build up happening you practice spelling Phoenix correctly.

On the point of PR, think 1st up the best.

Say SEMelb take some time to get "it" going and lose some games early. And, if they get trounced in those early outings and then have to front up to the red-hot United, who's going to go to get embarassed.

1st-up game, the anticipation and other hype (SEMelb have already shown that they are going to promote, promote, promote), either stadium will be packed. Now, even if the still red-hot United do trounce the Phoenicks (just joking with that spelling), well, most will say that's what they expected so, no real harm done. Should they win, I bet even LK would be happy. Yeah, his team may have lost but his league will definately be the real winner. what I think!

This coming from the person who keeps on about the bullets and the bullets train.

Well done.

by the way, why the hate on 2 previous posts. Not talking about negative comments of some worth. They will always be part of this and other forums and that's ok. But, for goodness sake. You guys have a total of around 3 to hate. The new owner, the new GM and the new coach. Can any of you even name them without looking it up? or can you tell what you are unhappy about, or, are you just practising/keeping up your form. Honestly, get a life!

Sorry, but note that you've got ME going, and yes, I don't even know your name(s). How lucky am I, not to know you?

Regards all!

I actually think Phoenix's first home game should be against anyone but United. Then Phoenix's second home game could be against United.

That way you are guaranteed at least two big crowds because they are two separate events. Phoenix's first home game and the first Melbourne derby between Phoenix and United.

Ok, seriously,

The first game, and perhaps even games against United should be United Home games. Why? Becuase its going to suck if its a Phoenix home game and their fans are outnumbered 5:1

Furthermore, the first such derby should be built up to, maybe round 2 or 3, to allow plenty of time for the hype.
