Froling reminds me of Greg Louganis: Mitchell

Phoenix head coach Simon Mitchell has called Harry froling out for being a "diver", likening him to Greg Louganis.

___

"We saw this happen last time - Harry is Greg Louganis when it comes to diving and gets rewarded every week," Mitchell said.

"So don't stop Harry ... keep going with it!

"The last time we played here he pushed Trist in the back, Tristy was out of control, his arm went around and Harry took a dive and lay down for five minutes.

"He was rewarded with a foul against Daniel Trist.

"I was kind of hoping for the same thing (on Sunday) but Harry does it a lot better than Dan Trist.

"We don't act very well - it's not who we are."

I did not realize Mitchell was this stupid.

The only thing more of a blight on the game than flopping is players/coaches from any club calling out their opponents. Its a hypocrisy overload!

Harry moves so slowly, it looks like dive but in reality it's full pace.

Agree being a bit rich when madgen is in your team, he’s been a disappointment.

Exactly and more importantly this guy thinks he can coach!

I'm all for NBL (AND NBA!) finding a better way to deter flopping, including post-game review flop warnings like demerit points based on context/severity leading to a suspension and then further suspensions as they accumulate.

However, when you bitch about it in reference to a play where your own player is the one who did the obvious flop is laughable.

Sorry you can't do anything retrospecively. It needs to be called then and there. Nothing else.

Coming from a guy whose previous record coaching at senior level was taking a women's SEABL team to a 2-20 record. How the hell did he get a coaching gig.

Bashing on one player for something all coaches are basically teaching now, it's become chronic at collegiate level, is just idiocy!

Mitchell has done a fair job coaching Phoenix as the team is crap other than Creek, Wesley, Roberson.
