Why doesn't Adelaide have a Next Star?
Serious Question, and one I think Sixer's fans should be asking.
Ok, so most teams don't have one, and I'm not singling out Adelaide for criticism.
But Joey could almost claim to have pioneered the concept with Ferguson. And with his contacts, I'd have thought it would be right up his alley?
Is it a money thing? It's not really clear when the league is paying 100% of the costs for Ball, Hampton, and Didi. But either or, Adelaide fans should be asking "why not us?".
If the league is indeed paying the full whack, then other teams have a right to be asking "where's ours?"
(And not, they have a right to complain that its unfair.)
Now obvious in any year there is a limited number of high calibre players available, but even somebody the next step down would be good.
And if a stashed Draftee is allowable, then surely there's a case to be made for guys that went undrafted?
