WNBL | Introducing the Southside Flyers

In a strange announcement, the Dandenong Rangers official rebrand has been launched - with the new name the Southside Flyers, with Cheryl Chambers head coach and Jenna O'Hea the star signing.

Dandenong Rangers rebranded as the Southside Flyers, sign Jenna O'Hea


No press conference. Owner, head coach and star signing all overseas. No website, no social media, no uniform, just a single logo.

Strange way to announce the rebranding.

Another reason why the wnbl will not survive.
Jackson and karp will not save it. Lk has to takeover.

Luck the Ryan family have plenty to tip into this venture as a bit of a fun side gig otherwise this would be doomed to fail!

Their roster is already filled
They will be competitive for sure and hopefully their home games may now reflect an elite sport unlike what the have been like for the past number of years

Melbourne
S.e Melbourne
Perth
Adelaide
Sydney
Cairns
Brisbane
Illawarra
Nz


Makes things easier for everyone involved.
Having a completeky different organisation with different teams, locations, board, admin, apparel etc etc is just stupid.

The afl, nrl, a league. All the same combined men's and women’s.

I really think kestleman had the chance and maybe others thought they could go there own way. Setting the women’s game back years.

Don’t see why you can’t play the women games before the men’s with maybe the women’s season starting a little later, maybe a third through the nbl season or finishing a 1/3 before the end of the nbl season.

NZ already tried and failed. Brisbane has failed 4 times! Why get rid of Townsville who are one of the most well run clubs in the league? Why get rid of Canberra who have the financial backing to keep good players in the country?

Surely that logo appearing on the BA website and in The Age isn't the actual logo? If it is, that's almost Sydney Spirit levels of bad.

I like the idea of alligning the men's and women's leagues but double headers are a very long night. What about alternate Home and Away, men play at H, women play A. That way, the women still get to stand alone, as apparantly they want,but can also take advantage of a larger fan base for the team/club. And honestly, most of us would find it easier to be at least a little interested in an alligned, other-gender team. And, makes for some delicious membership packages.

Could really hurt with live media exposure if both games at the same time but with our time zones it might just work.

Having the game before the men doesn't mean it will be full audience, some will get there half way through the wnbl game but still 3000 people plus is better than having a few hundred or a 1000 at dandenong it Bendigo or Perth it Adelaide etc

The audience would grow overtime with more exposure. You might see 7500 coming in earlier for wnbl double header and 15,000 leaving after
I don’t think they will really care that you will people coming in during the game.

There's only 1 issue and that’s the locker room, you’ll need both men’s and women’s in the stadium.

Or play the men first with women after, if people want to stay, they will.

Same as the Nbl it seems, so much disparity between teams.
