Sixers v Bullets Oct 19

The Sixers welcome their new home tonight, the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and what entertainment there should be tonight. The Sixers were based in Findon for some years but have decided to take the bold move to a new home. When the Perth Pussycats did it, the Sixers beat them on their opening night, so will the Bullets steal the show and go home with the chocolates? The new court will retain the tag "Brett Maher Court" and by all accounts Julius Hodge has given it the stamp of approval.

The jet lagged Sixers were well beaten by the Bogieman and his team last round and so will be looking to make amends. Brisbane faced off against the Phoenix and were beaten by the new boys on the block by 10 points. At times I thought I was watching a Sixers scratch match with more ex-Sixers dancing on the pine than at Brett Maher's birthday party. Cadee, Hodgson, Sobey, Creek, Gibson, Adnam, Madgen have all come under Murray Magpie’s wing at some stage.

The betting people have Brisbane as slight favourites, but so early in the season, games can go either way and I reckon Sobey 1 Kenobie will be out to impress. “you were my brother, Nathan! I loved you!” Now he has been struck off the Sixers list, has he become more powerful than we can possibly imagine? Commander Joey, the time has come. Execute Order 66. But the Sixers now have their own Obi and he will use the Force to his own advantage.

Brisbane are certainly more talented on paper and have the Australian coach directing them. The stoic Cairns win last night puts pressure on the Sixers. The “Sack Joey” threads have already started, but tonight how could you not tip Adelaide to win?

As nice as it would be to see us get up the Bullets have been looking decent so far this season so I think they should win by around 8 points.

It will be interesting to see how Randle is received.

The promotion of Cadee is disgraceful, nbl have to get there commentary calling games not talking up there favourites, same goes with homicide.
Wright was right letting Sobey go, has been horrible. I'm a Lemanis fan but the balance of this side is horrible, Te rangi sitting on the bench behind Braun is just bad coaching. Well done 36er well deserved win. Randle is a good fit and better player now than when he was at Adelaide last time.

Glad Adelaide got a first up win on their new court. The team itself didn't look so bad tonight, some nice parts off the bench to complement the starters.

Hodgson’s bonehead fouls and Vukona doing anything but playing basketball pretty much summed up the Bullets 4th quarter for me.

Adelaide have to be championship favorites. ( Lol just kidding)
Will be a very long season for Brisbane if they don't upgrade imports.
They need a point guard and slide Sobey to the two spot with Glidden off the bench.
Get a four man import.
Impressed with Magnay.

Worst review on this board of a Sixers game where have all the Adelaide posters gone.
Sixers might not be up to top teams but good to see great game from McVeigh and Griffen will add some excitement and scoring amongst some silly errors.
Randle will be Randle but boy is the club promoting his return .
Lots of rotations and all did ok except our captain but still don't understand how Moore got another season.
Bit to like about new venue but don't see how will be a decent financial decision long term,
Hard to watch Sobey play for another team as Creek will be.

Bretts, I was honestly very happy seeing Sobey shoot our opponents out of the game, instead of us down the stretch! Made for a nice change after the Bullets stole at least two games from us last season, costing us playoffs!

If the original calls were upheld i'd agree with you, but when they are being overruled within 5 seconds of review, or take multiple reviews of the video because no clear picture can be found and its only 'not overruled' ( difference from being upheld/confirmed) . then it is the refs fault for blatantly wrong calls. JMHO

don't think 36ers won so much as bullets lost - and lost badly.

sitting watching live makes me realise just how bad the TV camera direction/switching is closeups of player doing nothing while ball is trying to be put back into play and steal occur etc, etc I got so uninterested last year i'd not bother to watch the TV games because the ball was basically boring ( could not attend live last season) . Live its still just as good again. BIG plus is not hearing Heal

36ers have a lock on the the informal referee-awarded 'meathead' award with two players clear league leaders.

Magnay can play

Lamar Patterson is no longer playing hungry - still very very good in flashes, but no team offence designed for him, and he seems less committed to finding a win.

Cadee is an unnecessary third wheel

Braun would play better and could deliver good import numbers if Singer was gone.

Bullets would have lost to whoever showed up last night, but Wright managed to keep it close.

Teys and White are very unlikely 6th or 7th men in the same NBL roster

Majok Deng - plays far better away from Wright than ever did for him = good move for both club and Deng to move on.

Ramon Moore will have his 44th birthday playing for Wright

Gotta love adelaide's player list

that is correct , also inconclusive VIDEO can't show the call to be "blatantly right" either


- non sequitur warning - I clearly not getting what you mean ?
perhaps I was unclear ?

a NBL video review is precisely that - a review - but the review rules ( AFAIK) are that the call is only overruled if it is shown in the video to be, in your language, "blatantly wrong" - if its only probably wrong - it stands as called.

does this clear it up for you ?
