Why doesn't NT & TAS have a proper State League

Seems odd there is no proper state leagues in Tassie minus the couple NBL1 clubs and NT

NT - too sparse outside Darwin. TAS - north-south divide.

They have regionalised leagues at least like the DBA and NWBU.

Plus SA doesn't have any teams outside of Adelaide so it is only a state league in name.

What they call "TAS State League" is just a two week carnival involving the top four teams of the northern and southern regional leagues. Hardly a proper state wide competition.

Wrong again if you had done some more research you would have found out that this is only a recent occurrence.

What about providing a bit of info yourself so everyone can learn about the state leagues in those areas?

Why has SA never pushed for country teams?

SA has had country teams over previous years - Murray Bridge, Riverland, Mt Gambier

The Tas State League is a post season roster that follows on from the three regional leagues. It has been running for about 6 years and has several regional based games followed by a gala weekend with finals.
Most imports have gone home so teams use permit players to "top up" their lists so not really a true league.
People would not travel the 3-4 hours required to have a consistent state league throughout the year.

'People would not travel the 3-4 hours required to have a consistent state league throughout the year.'

Why wouldn't they ? Other state leagues do.

Limited population centres outside of Adelaide and any benefits don't outweigh the travel costs.

Largest SA towns by 2016 population going by Wikipedia:

Mount Gambier 26k (was in SEABL until recent changes)
Whyalla 21k
Murray Bridge 17k
Victor Harbor
Port Lincoln (7 hour drive)

Looking at Vic SEABL teams and distances, Bendigo is 150km from Melbourne, Dandenong is 35km from Melbourne centre. Frankston to Geelong is 125km. In SA, Mt Gambier is 400+ km from Adelaide and closer to Melbourne.

Geelong is 157k population, Ballarat 93k, Bendigo 92k, etc.

Anything within an hour or 90 minutes is going to be doable as a bus trip or players car-pooling and easy to do without accommodation, per diem costs.

Pretty simple. Look up the same google search that Perthworld would have done and research further. rather than quoting the first thing he read because he didn't know anything about the TSBL.

look at regions too not just town size -

so Iron Triangle would have -

Pt Augusta about 13,000, Pirie ? 11,000 and Whyalla 20,000 so about 45,000 between the towns

Riverland around 30,000 between towns

Copper Triangle around 15,000

Mt Gambier Millicent 33,000

Sadly it's a case of that's the way we've always done it.
Was a huge outcry by some when Mt Gambier were homeless and wanted in to the Premier League, didn't turn out badly at all.
Suppose will always come down to dollars and cents. Teams in the Riverland, Whyalla and Port Lincoln could be viable if some players could be attracted to play there with existing locals. Certainly money in Pt Lincoln. But BSA are blinkered in expanding its league. Even junior state championships, why not have a play in against the 2 bottom teams per age group?

I repeat a two week carnival with a few invited clubs isn't a proper state league. The week in week out leagues in TAS are the NWBU up north and whatever they play in the south. Angry much stalker anon?

Guess Goggle let you down. Better research next time seeing as you knew nothing about that League. I guess that the Perth League is pretty much the same. City base with a couple of outside teams.

#785 who do yo think were against MTG? It wasn't BSA but the 10 clubs. Same with any expansion. It's the current 10 historical PL clubs who wont let anyone in.

Ok, Perthworld somewhat correct. 3 regions play locally during regular season. NWBU in NW, LBA in North and HBC in South. At the end of regular season teams are invited to a State League competition, 2 weekends at central venues then further games between local regional opposition teams during this period. The final 4 in both men's and women’s meet over a Gala Weekend for finals. So yes, not a full State League, but the foundations for a future league are in place.

SA always looking for ways to be stuck in the 1980's when it comes to progressing bball.

They should have chased harder to get Mildura across and the regions mentioned above.

Don't argue with Pertworld Scott Boucher. He is always right. Even when he's wrong. You failed to make the point there was a full State League several seasons ago.
