NZ NBL Competitive Balance System


How does it compare to the NBL?

It doesn't. The NBL has never truly enforced the salary cap. Strange that the NZBL can.

"The planned five-year CBS will include a minimum and maximum amount of money teams can spend on players, along with subsequent penalties for failing to do either, or for breaching the system"

"The new system was designed by NBL general manager Justin Nelson and tweaked by a panel put in place by the nine teams. The panel included Nelson, Wellington Saints general manager Jordan Mills and Taranaki Mountain Airs representative Bernie Smith."

WTF, it took all that work just to come up with the idea of a salary cap?

Will they have Colour TV soon?

Wow Dazz. In what ever form you come back you are still a dickhead.The NBL has always had a cap that they couldn't enforce. No one other than you seems to think it's something new.

You forgot to include "Stringent control will be put in place including all player contracts having to be tabled for approval by the League."
Oh and this ""The gap between the lowest and highest paying teams needs to be closed and the Competitive Balance System will do that over the next five years. Importantly, the system is as much about raising the bar and lifting the lower levels, as much as it is about ensuring we don't have a lopsided competition due to the ability of some teams to spend more money than others," Nelson added."
Seriously you are a fracktard.
