Quite funny some loud mouth on here saying about how whittlesea won't drop down a division and it was a well known fact I think he used. Well guess what whittlesea with their joke of a coach have plumeted down from SCM to div 2, that's some effort by one man.

Under the terms of the merger between Geelong and Corio Bay, the Stingrays name has to be retained for the 2020 Big V season.

Will be Geelong United from 2021 onwards.

Corio Bay has zero competition moving forward as an Association, all of the clubs & players are now with Geelong United.

So, maybe the name will be retained for a season, but where would they play, who would run it, who would fund a BigV out of Corio Bay with nothing but a name, no revenue and no members?

Stingrays no longer have a committee, other than the basic shell to keep it viable as a legal entity, they had no VJBL try outs, nothing of any note has been done under this banner.

If they enter in the CBL this summer I would be surprised, so if they don't, I don't expect them to enter any teams in BigV!

Stingrays should be kept alive as a club, someone takes them on and starts developing juniors so they become a domestic club in the Geelong United competition, that would be the logical scenario to keep the name alive.

Big V do have a draft league structure - I've seen it

Cburn YL2 > YL1
Albury looking to enter YL2
Shepparton YL1 or 2 not sure yet
Sunbury might be the only team relegated out of YL1 due to new teams

I'm a youth league guy, so I like to see which new clubs and teams are coming in. I can look again at the doc to see senior teams - its a draft proposal to help with first phase of fixturing its pretty common that this document gets leaked and people think its the real thing

I am happy to stand corrected any time, but what I am saying is that there is a difference between having a team called Corio Bay enter under another Association's support network compared with what we had previously.

If they have them listed, that's not the same as having them actually enter the competition with teams and a support network behind it.

So, my questions are, where is the committee behind this, the finances, the players, coaches, volunteers, venue, etc... Where are these teams coming from?

If you are saying (anon) that the BigV has them on a proposed list, okay so where is the evidence that they can action it according to the BigV's list of requirements and conditions of entry?

Why would this matter? BigV have bent rules multiple times over the years to allow the comp to continue. Stadiums with less than adequate change rooms, insufficient seating etc.. to name a few items that they have overlooked to keep the wheels turning.

To be clear, what I am reading from the anon posts here is that someone believes GUB may enter two sets of Big V teams in 2020, one wet under United and another under the Stingrays name.

If this is what is proposed, yes the Big V would have to make some concessions, also I don't see why this would be done and to be honest how successful it would be, but if this is the proposal I haven't heard anything about it yet...

Speculation, isn't fact!

Geelong United entering teams in BigV under the old Corio Bay name in seniors and as Geelong United in YL.

Only for 2020, then I believe all will be under the Geelong United banner in 2021.

My thoughts have always been that the BigV is too exclusive and should work with NBL1 to allow any Association to enter wherever they wish and for it to be regulated by being more inclusive and less restricting, it will be interesting to see where this all leads us in years to come...

So Bear, they are going in under Corio Bay, it would appear you owe a few posters apologies after calling them out....speculation, isn't facts....looks like your out of the loop @ GU.

Anywho, way to get rid of a coach saying he didn’t develop any players, to then turn around and cut off development for the senior program!
Clearly no room for development under 3 different clubs, no players can move between division, players would require a clearance to move.

Anon, I am always happy to stand corrected, once the facts have come out they have supported my thoughts. This is what I have been saying all along. I have been saying that a team wearing Stingrays tops, entered under GUB's players, committee, funding, venue and support network is hardly a Corio Bay BigV team, isn't it?

This appears to serve a purpose which is fine, my beef is with the draconian rules of the BigV and NBL1, not allowing an Association (whoever they are) the flexibility to enter teams into the competition that they can support and which suits the local area!

They have much to improve on...

Just seen DV YLW is advertised this also seems a little late as most teams have started some form of training by now.

Div 1 announced Stingrays/Geelong United.

Mix of 2019 SCM nbl1 and youth

Looks good on paper.

Rebula, Goodwin, Beks, Ruiz, Headlam, Bow, Till from Altona then youth Kos. Goodier, Blyth and Vekic.

What happened to Brian at Whittlesea? Isn't he the coaching director?

Brian should have been asked to leave long time ago. He wasted a lot of good young players. Hopefully something better happens now for the Pacers

What happened to the DV YLW coach? My understanding was that it was the same guy returning from last season, and they held the tryouts back in October. Is his departure connected with Jonno Goodman leaving, or a separate issue?

Pacers may not have a team, only 4 or 5 players and that's after tryouts, thats why Brian Walked.

so why was Brian not able to retain the players? so many have come to Pacers and left over the last 3 years that you have to wonder whether he walked or whether they players decided they would not play for him? sad development for the club

Safe to say DV have lost the plot
Advertise the role but already appointed another coach as anonymous stated above
What a joke, DV going backwards very quickly

Any other news? Player/coach movement? Upcoming preseason games?

Into December now and haven't heard much since the updated competition structure!

Bigv is well and truly on the downward trend. Teams leaving for nbl1 have really weakened the league combined with rapid expansion over the last several years with teams/clubs well and truly not up to senior rep standard. All the years of people bashing it, well now it is well and truly come to fruition. Scm is even more of an after thought now. Players and coaches looking to get involved with nbl1.
League needs to make some changes, if they sit still and do nothing this league will only drop further down into obscurity. A good case study in branding and what happens when too many people get involved at levels they aren't up to.

Calling the BigV 'on a downward trend' is very subjective in my opinion. What's changed can also be subjective, depending on what period of time you want to bring to the debate.

What hasn't changed is that the money is often poorly distributed, the fact is that it is one of the few semi-professional sports here that attracts an import or two who get some dollars, often at the expense of locals who may not actually be much less talented in some cases.

The problem with the BigV, and it always has been, is the incentive for talented locals to stay in the game after turning say 20-23 years of age...

Imports can and will also always draw people to a game regardless if they are more or less talented and at times can also earn $ in sponsorship so become a huge bonus to clubs than local talent, though I agree local players are just as good skill wise and less hassle (visas accommodation etc). Big V I agree have way too many leagues and teams to control but it is a great concept with people working hard to make it work they just need to condense and make it more like years ago, you had to show financials, domestic, junior rep, courts in good condition (change rooms, ref room etc) then we get elite.

Been yelling this for a while

We don't need YL2

We could almost do away with Div 2 and make it just Div 1/ Div 2 roll everyone in together.

YL takes talent away from senior teams and spreads the league too think - Div 2 womens comp has a lot of teams that just stink and should go play midweek domestic, and div 2 mens lacks real talent as the young guys that would fill this league in the past play YL instead.

Stop letting everyone in, reduce the leagues to help with sponsorship.

But Big V is an outlet for Pros/Ams and Semi-Pros to play basketball and the size of it says there are people out there that want to be involved and want to play regardless of the quality - the NBL1 is stealing talent issue isn't one THEY SHOULD BE! its the next tier up!

Agree with a bit of the Personal Foul. Think YL2 needs to go. With regards to Div2 though , it either needs to stay as is, or be disbanded. Combining D2 with D1, will show a massive gap between the top end of D1 and the bottom end of D2 playing in the same league. Even bigger blowouts would take place.

10-15 Years ago there were a lot less teams, spots had to be earned a lot more and there was more of a sense of achievement in making a team.
These days, there is certainly more teams than quality players, I know D1 teams that have to chase players to fill rosters, as opposed to teams cutting away players as I mentioned above.

I mentioned in another post when discussing this, that I think Big V should do what NBL1 did, set their parameters for the different levels, how many teams, requirements etc, then open them up to licencing, as NBL1 did. Those clubs that miss out, would then need to get their house in order to join.
