Lemanis: NBL is uneven financial playing field
Lemanis called on the NBL to be more transparent about the money each club is able to spend on players.
I think it would be fantastic if all that was made transparent. Not individual player salaries but just total spend so that the public is actually informed, and fans have a realistic expectation on where their teams are going to finish at the end of the season and can get behind something else if it's not built financially to compete with the big boys.
"If the fans in Cairns think that they have the same chance of winning as the fans at Melbourne United, they are being misled.
“Fans want to know why you can’t recruit Jock Landale. Finances, basically.’’
Some on here will baulk at the excuses, and clubs would baulk at revealing that information whether you’re a big club or a smaller club, it probably doesn’t assist them from a PR aspect.
It is a reasonable point though - who here wouldn’t want the NBL to release how much a club is spending on total player wages each year?
