1 phone call in 4 months to BTAS says it all. I guess you are a board (sheep) member. Part of the Jonestown cult. Believe what the President says as he throws you under the bus.So many gullible people here that believe only 1 side of the story without hearing the other.
Here are the Huskies responding to Bartlett's lies. The Mercury today.
"Tasmania's basketbrawl escalates after Southern Huskies apply for a licence for Victorian Elite League

THE Southern Huskies have applied for a licence to field a men’s and women’s side in the new Victorian Elite League — but only because of the void left by the Hobart Chargers’ stunning decision to withdraw.
The tension between Basketball Tasmania, the Chargers and the Huskies continues to escalate, with Chargers president David Bartlett, who dropped a bombshell last Friday week when he said the club would suspend operations for 12 months, releasing a statement after it had received "extraordinary new information".
In the statement, Bartlett said the Chargers had become aware of the “potential for substantial Basketball Tasmania funding to go directly to the Huskies to effectively replace the Hobart Chargers in the Elite League”, as well as a partnership between BT and the Huskies which “offer significant financial support to the Huskies, including the ability to run academies and junior programs”.
David Bartlett, president of the Hobart Chargers basketball team. However, Huskies chief operating officer Mike Sutton has vehemently denied any financial assistance from BT, and the said its push to replace the Chargers in the Victorian competition was purely to ensure a pathway existed for aspiring players to the elite level.
“It was the last thing we were thinking about getting involved in,” Sutton said about the decision to apply to put teams into the Elite League.
“I have no idea what David is talking about on the BT funding, it is simply not true. It was never ever, and still hasn’t been, discussed about them giving us any funding for anything. We had to look closely to whether we got involved or not to be honest, it is a big risk and it’s another huge project to sink your teeth into.
“We have been working around the clock since last Friday, after Dave’s press conference, to try and get this to a position to move forward. We’ve been asked to do it [apply for a licence] and as it stands, that’s the current pursuit.
“We have gone through that application process and we have been working very closely with Basketball Victoria and Basketball Tasmania to put a team in that league for the sake of not missing out and never getting it back. As of now, on the 15th, none of it has been approved by anyone. We are waiting like everyone else that Hobart will get a team in that Vic League or not.
“Anthony [Stewart] was beside himself with the thought there would be no development program for him as a coach of the Huskies, but more so all the great work by the Chargers undone and nowhere for anyone to go.”
Bartlett did not return the Sunday Tasmanian’s calls.Let's not let the truth get in the way of a good beatup. I hope the directors are cashed up.
