Be interesting to see how it all pans out. He doesn't have a great track record with his antics.

It is a strange appointment. I thought he was charged with assaulting some dude with a water bottle recently? That was the last I heard of him

Not sure what the all this talk about Kunek going back to Sydney are? She has been playing in Europe and doing well, why would she come back and play in Sydney?

Do all the Victorians that had a connection with Frog from their junior days even go back to Sydney? or look for other opportunities?

You can't, dating back to his NBL GF shenanigans.

I've always been amazed by Shane Heal the guy always lands on his feet and never fails to find a sucker somewhere.

At least this time his daughter will be deserving of the big minutes.

Has a show on Murdoch media called the basketball show with fraudster rucker, viewership next to nothing.


That's what I mean it's crazy he AND Rucker of all the people in the Australian basketball scene are sitting there pocketing Rupert's money, background checks be damned.

How on earth can someone with the past he has "outside of playing the game" even be considered for a head coaching job
Marley , if she has any brains will not renew her contract, no one wants to play under Heal, and that's without his daughter in the team
Feel for Shyla.... I can see another parent /athlete issue here straight off , be like that young tennis player years ago, with the out of control father... poor kid

Jelena Dokic?

It's funny how the Heal situation with his daughter is virtually identical to that of his close friend Brendan Joyce and his son. Joyce force fed Daniel big minutes at the Gold Coast Blaze despite not being NBL standard.

SoJ was on another level bad!! Shyla is up to league standard at least.

Let's just remember this thread for a year or two time, much like the school holiday special Cecil Exum Gaze dunk .

When it was obvious Demopoulos was gone from United Heal kept relentlessly recommending Joyce for the coaching position during TV commentary. This happened well before he became a player agent and notoriously started hyping his clients up as being NBA calibre.

Now that Paul Smith is part of the circle jerk club maybe Brendan can hit him up for an NBL return via Shane.

She wasn't at the time when Shane was coaching her in the WNBL, she is now though you can bet on that!

Smith showed his true colours during last seasons Indigenous Round. The GF antics were just par for the course at that stage.

Bit different, she was 15y.o at seq and then got no time at Perth, little time under york at spirit.

Onky 3 coaches that have faith in youth and that's Seebohm, gorry n lucas.
Under Seebohm she started flourished and is now a top 12 wnba draft pick

You're right, he had established himself earlier as the season went on.

"What happened with Kruger?"

Extremely bad blood between the two with comments allegedly made by Kruger about Heal's family. Can't swear to the facts there

What I can vividly remember to this day is the preseason practice match Kings v Hawks at Sutherland and the sound of Heal's fist connecting with Kruger's jaw as some revenge was sought. Sparked a massive brawl but it was very much a personal thing that started it. Heal just walked up and clocked him out of nowhere

Duke Fan , I was there that night as well , your recollection is 100 % correct , the only part you missed was Heal running behind his team mates after he had king hit Kruger.

Mods...what is the difference between this thread and the risks you perceived in the Mitch Creek thread?

The mention of Heal generates comments about :

- His assaults.
- His financial dealings.
- His connections / agency.
- His daughter's minutes.
- Even poor Derek Rucker gets roped into it.

Some of these comments lean towards slander also.

Derek Rucker committed fraud. Admitted to it in a court of law. But it happened in Gladstone Lovebroker and we all know how you perceive communities outside metro areas so likely doesn't count in your opinion...the bloke is a disgrace.

Isn't that a bit of a jump to label someone racist for discussing someone of colour?

I spoke to a colleague about Lebron James today in a positive light and excluded all other peoples, is that racism also?

No, if it's in a positive light that is reverse racism.

Haven't read the thread and nor do I read all threads, and no one has reported any of the posts.

Can't win. Lock a thread or remove posts and people complain about free speech and censorship. Leave anything critical up and usually get accused of playing favourites.

The Creek thread presumably pertains to an active/looming court case/investigation. This doesn't. In one situation, there is a suggestion that a publisher can be considered more responsible - it's a largely untested legal scenario. In the other, Heal can follow a fairly tested path of requesting identifying information for any poster here to pursue a legal case against them and I can comply. Or any individual can report a post for me to inspect.

As before, if anyone wants to start their "Talk About Creek Case, Lock All Heal Criticism" forum, be my guest. Run the moderation gauntlet and riches surely await.

Locking thread, as requested.
