That's interesting, seemed like the Comets team basically moved to Inner West Bulls when they pulled out of the Waratah League, any ideas which teams might be in

Hearing Basketball NSW want to try to milk the Waratah League etc for as long as possible, so are not playing ball well with NBL1

Saw Comets put up trials for Waratah One Men - does it mean there will be NBL1/W1/W2 format - is there even enough teams to do it that way

The standard of the Waratah League is very poor. It should be transitioned to NBL1 as soon as possible.

Clubs don't want to/can't afford the 250% increase in cost in what is an amateur league.

The governing body couldn't be bothered to meat with an internationally recognised brand to sponsor the league,

Nsw basketball charge exorbitant fees to all clubs for competitions, the clubs are behind the eight ball for money.

The issue is definitely BNSW using the NBL1 brand as an excuse to bump up fees significantly without providing any additional value or providing any justification.

Does anyone believe some of the more wealthier clubs such as Norths, Manly and so on will pay up and get the ball rolling with it looking like to start in 2021, this way there would be 8 teams to start and can slowly add on as teams debate the costs or argue the costs and re-negotiate better deals

NBL1:
- Manly
- Maitland
- Central Coast
- Newcastle
- Norths
- Canberra
- CoE
- Hills

50/50
- Inner West
- Illawarra

Most likely no
- Sydney
- Penrith
- Hornsby
and so on

So for NBL1 the governing body is supposed to get a major sponsor to subsidize the costs for the league or is it purely BNSW wanting more money and are not bothering with the sponsor aspect of things

What are the chances of the Waratah League teams going rogue and starting their own league away from BNSW

There is rumbles that we could be seeing some teams from NSW looking to enter into NBL1 South or NZ NBL next season

Rumors are:

Norths and Canberra looking into it as the NBL1 talks with NSW has stalled for time being

Parramatta basketball hasn't been part BNSW for years and has to be the wealthiest club out there. They only run local competitions as they are not allowed in any bnsw comps for obvious reasons. Any kid that goes through there and they think is good enough for reps are encouraged to find another club that pay bnsw money to have rep programs. Most clubs that pay bnsw struggle to make any money.

You can call the Waratah league anything you like there is no money to turn it semi professional. Just on a side note the kings train out of parramatta stadium at auburn.

When sports insurance/public liability averages out at less than $12 per person... no wonder Parramatta is making more money than any BNSW affiliated club.

As usual basketball nsw want more money from the clubs, I can't see it happening. The only club with lots of money is parramatta basketball and they don’t belong to basketball nsw. It’s the kings training base.

This might be a case of BNSW being greedy

If they were able to overcome sponsorship deal issues with QLD and WA which seemed to be a big stumbling block why is BNSW creating their own hurdles for no reason i.e. tripling the entry fee if the switch is made to NBL1

A unified NBL1 league would be massively beneficial for all especially NSW

Hearing NBL1 East for 2022 will be dependent on if enough clubs can raise enough money from sponsors to pay close to the entry fee BNSW set for NBL1

If they get up to four clubs they will be lucky.

I believe current fees are $2250 for waratah 1 team but BNSW want $7500 for NBL1 entry - this would be $7500 for mens nbl1 and $7500 for womens nbl1 meaning a club to enter a womens and mens team into NBL1 would cost $15k
