Normal,NBL1 season is still a month out, so hopefully by then things may be closer to being settled, p,Ayung games in restricted stadiums would solve some issues, but players still need to be fit to play, a delayed start to both seasons isn't going to hurt anyone, imports probably can’t even get here at the moment , so that’s another issue

They've just cancelled pretty much everything on less than 200 cases in the whole country. Some "experts" are saying that 1 in 4 could get this. If that’s the case when do they say it’s safe to return to games? When we peak at 5 mil or at 200 on the way back down?

Confirmed cases are not actual cases. Confirmed cases are limited to those who have actually tested positive, and ignores those who haven't been tested and may not even be showing symptoms yet.

We've already had three deaths. Death rate looks like it's hovering around 0.87%. 0.87% of 200 is way, way lower than three, so there are way, way more than 200 cases. And it takes 17 days to die, on average, so that means there were way more than 200 cases 17 days ago. Cases double every six days, so it's doubled almost three times since there were way more than 200 cases.

With three people dead, there are likely over two thousand cases.

Which will be the first association to go broke? Juniors are cancelled, no door free. Imports need to be payed and housed. Courts still need to be payed for in most cases. Most have lots of full time staff that need to be payed. Domestic juniors were just about to end the season and players won't register without certainty for the next one.

No reason Big V games should cancelled if the rule is less than 500 people.

Is there a reason they can't they play with out spectators?

By the sounds of it there were still games this weekend just unofficial ones. This will inevitably keep happening. I bet next week most Big V teams will be playing something. Either Intra club or Inter club.

Best Big V just follow the advice outlined and keep the attendance to the minimum.

If Nbl is doing it why not Big V?

This is why BigV games were cancelled.

http://basketballvictoria.com.au/bv-statement-covid-19/

13/3/20 - Update

Basketball Victoria has made the decision to suspend Basketball Victoria related programs, events and leagues from now March 13, until further notice. This includes ALL VJBL games, Big V games and the Country Championships being held in Ballarat this weekend.

As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work through this difficult period. This is a decision we don't take lightly and want to reassure the basketball

community that we will continue to work with the Victorian Government and other health authorities to ensure the health and wellbeing of our players, coaches, referees and staff are maintained.

Further updates will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

Both NBL1 and Big V are huge costs to associations. If they aren't going to be able to get them on court in the next 4 weeks then call both of them off so they can send imports home instead of having to lay off their local staff. Take pressure off the clubs and let them recover once they can start their competitions again and can then afford luxury.

From Ballarat Basketball:


COVID-19 News Update | A Message from Basketball Ballarat
Thursday March 19th, 2020



Basketball Ballarat have made the decision that the Hotondo Homes Ballarat Miners and Selkirk Ballarat Rush Teams will not participate in the 2020 NBL1 South Season.



Basketball Ballarat, with guidance from many key stakeholders including Basketball Victoria, Community Clubs Victoria and other Victorian Basketball Associations, have come to this difficult decision in the best interests of the physical and mental well-being of all athletes, members, supporters, staff, volunteers and match officials during this unprecedented global health pandemic caused by COVID-19.



Over the upcoming weeks and months, we will be prioritising working extremely closely with our local member clubs, players, officials and families to ensure that we re-establish the sport of basketball within our community from the grass roots level up.



The NBL1 competition is at the pinnacle of our regional athlete pathway and this difficult decision has already been made by other member Associations to ensure we are all viable for all local club and member programs and competitions immediately when we are through the current emergency.



We assure you that we are already planning for how to provide the best possible grassroots program for the thousands of junior and senior local players and their families who rely on us to provide the sport that we all love. This will flow back into our elite level senior NBL1 programs from 2021 when we will fully resume our full pathway for all athletes, coaches and officials.



As a club with a rich heritage spanning generations, we have faced many challenges before and through working together, supporting our members & sponsors, and focussing on remaining viable to get our generations of participants back on court we want to provide confidence that our focus is in the right place.



Thank you for all your support in the past and looking into the future to continue that support of the game we love.



Peter Eddy

Chief Executive Officer

Is it just me or does it that combined with the number of other NBL1 stating they are not playing sound like they NBL1 clubs have all decided to withdraw together?

I think it's important to clarify a few things about clubs and their financials.

There is a big difference between clubs not having any money and clubs having money in the bank and cutting un-necessary costs to maintain their bottom line.

NBL1 and Big V teams for many associations are a sunk cost. There is little return.

From what people in the industry are saying, Dandenong's financial situation isn't greatcoat sure about other clubs. Same with Ballarat.

Most of the bottom clubs rely on imports to at least keep it a little bit competitive. Imagine Eastern playing Forestville without their imports and Forestville still having Teys, Brine, Mays, Harris etc. Just cancel it, Maybe start Summer season earlier and rename it, not reserves like it has been.
