It's the way it Shatters that Matters

Is this the glass jaw moment for the Violet Crumbles?

Almost Gaze like display by Bill Beaver

Left Lisch out there too much when clearly he was struggling.
Throwing out bizarre rotations, and going to the end of his bench when the game is in the balance.

Maybe he should have recruited a starting PF that could actually rebound?

Clearly you have no idea of how the Violet Crubles tag was derived. Stupid topic.

Everybody loses at Perth. It's such a long flight, the other teams are discombobulated when they finally get there. Losing to Perth at Perth is hardly the end of the world. Got to give a lot of credit to Perth on away games. They fly a lot of hours. And of course they have big crowds. Which always helps. Any team. Not a lot to do in Perth. They shouldn't let the cameras pan to the stands.

"Everybody loses at Perth"

LMFAO at the Crumbles and their pathetic bandwagon fans. Now you have humiliated yourselves on your home court as well.
"Ooohh but we were without Lisch and Didi". Okay, so you're down to only 3 Americans just like the rest of us. Quick better come up with some new ways to cheat.

I think from now on my mantra will be Ï support TWO NBL teams"
Adelaide, and whoever is playing Sydney.

I remember many years ago submitting a new entry for the term 'Violet Crumble' over at Urbandictionary - obviously in reference to the Kings - and it was declined, even with references to sources as required. It's an important piece of Australiana which I feel needs to get published. In honour of our rekindled league-wide anti-Sydney alliance let's collaborate to get it done. Who's in?

Oh Happy Day...

This season just keeps getting better and better. I cannot recall when I last enjoyed the total collapse of a team so much.
Oh where are the idiots who thought this dill should be coaching the Boomers? Straight back on the plane for you Mr Beaver. Anyone got Neilson's phone number?

Tied with Perth for 1st. Might want to peek at the current standings before opening your pie hole.

Yes. Major players out injured and it's the Violet Crumbles.
Who here actually know the derivation of that usage. Very very few I suspect and losing tonight isn't the way the phrase should be used at all.

They did their best last night in a poor attempt at a Cardiac Kings impression.

So you're saying that there is a different reason to bag the Kings? Ok, tell us that reason too then please.
