SBL Clubs divided over NBL1

Paywall article: https://thewest.com.au/sport/basketball/sbl-clubs-hesitant-on-potential-re-brand-to-nbl1-ng-b881630300z

Read it here

I don't like the idea that its going to force clubs to drop sponsors (something that is very hard to get) and that it supposedly has links to sport betting. These clubs mostly incorporate juniors, and literally are "Family Clubs."

Andy Summerville, from the Joondalup Jolves, created confusing by calling the proposal a "no-brainer".

Wolfpack should have gone national long ago, a backwards league holding it down.

OP how is Summerville calling the proposed move a "no brainer" causing confusion? He even clarifies his position in the last paragraph about losing players. Crystal clear.

Wait Awhile will lag behind the other states if SBL doesn't join NBL1.

What is bizarre there greatest concern is losing players to other state leagues if they rebrand, but its most likely they will lose players if they don't rebrand as the SBL will fall behind further

A few of NBL level and NBL1 South players are showing interest in playing in NSW for 2021 as they have been provided reassurance that it will be rebranding to NBL1 next year

Why would players care about the name of the league?

Are there any actual specifics available, or are we all just picking a side for no real reason?

I don't claim to speak for anyone involved in SBL.
Since you stole our team, we nolonger have representation in the SBL. #FUjoondalup.

My personal view is as follows:
I urge caution, and "eyes open" when considering any such proposal.
The idea that clubs will need to drop sponsors is a huge concern.
Gambling destroys lives and families. Any association with betting should be shunned.
Fwits like Summerville have been having pipe-dreams about a "2nd tier national competition" since Cook. It's a nonsense.
A limited national championships of All-star teams has merit, but that doesn't require rebranding or ceding control.

We need all the state leagues to move into the NBL1 bracket and within several years all the leagues should slowly even themselves out as the players will stay to play locally then to move around for a slightly stronger league. Always Victoria will most likely be slightly ahead everyone

They do as the exposure is better as well as why do so many players play in the NBL1 South when they could play in there local state league instead ?

Do agree that the whole betting sponsors and dropping sponsors is an odd one and they should allow teams to get their own sponsors or assist teams to get reasonable sponsors

The league has already been supported by betting. Nothing changes.

Thanks for clearing your stance up.

Doesn't look like they are saying no? Just want some amendments to what’s proposed? That would be just doing your due diligence. Signing up to any deal on behalf of a not for profit with a for profit entity without going back and forth, would be a 'no brainer’.
Blindly entering an agreement which could compromise your clubs future would be more brainless.

Wa will join once parties come to terms on Grey areas. Just like Qld did.
Vic currently aren't playing under this agreement. They are being proposed the same as WA for next season and beyond. Will be interesting to see if they are presented the same proposal and give the same feedback on concerns.

I was going to say I noticed Mackay were going to keep McDonalds as a main sponsor when they are a rival to Burger King, so the sponsor issues shouldn't be too big to overcome if they allowed competitors to the main leagues sponsor be in the NBL1

There is a grace period on conflicting sponsors.
