No VJBL

Really disappointing for juniors again this week in Melb - another week of bball cancelled and about to go into school holidays with no tournaments. After a year of no comp. Arrested development right here. Real shame, and it will be felt over the years to come.

You can have up to a 1000 people at a venue, but kids can't play basketball. Nonsense. These guys have to go.

100 people in a pub, no kids on a basketball court. BV not pushing hard enough at all.

It's not the Government stopping VJBL and Big V this weekend, it’s BV!

New COVID restrictions allow indoor sport to run from tomorrow but BV decided not to run it.

We'll, if that’s true, that’s pretty disappointing.

But it's a indoor max capacity of 50 people in one space (not per court)

It's the VIC government's restrictions holding back a return to basketball, not BV.

Its 50 per venue in Metro Melbourne, 300 per venue in country.
How is BV stopping games being run? Do you not think BV would get VJBL running if they could? In theory, Big V and NBL could restart with no Crowd but clubs said they need to train before hitting the court after not playing for almost 4 weeks.

Lets be real. 50 in a stadium for VJBL means 3 courts max per venue with mum and dad waiting in the car.
What nbl1 club has money to cover no spectators, I would suggest none.
Big V in the same position, 50 would cover 1 game while all involved with game 2 sit in the carpark.

I think people would pay the few bucks in any event so that's silly

Bigger issue is the approach by Vic Gov. Nuts, and lacks care and proportionally. Go to the pub, but don’t let kids play sport. Chief Medical Officer can fly to Canberra for an awards night, but don’t let kids play basketball. BV need to be stronger, like other interest groups.

NBL1 and Big V : No one could attend to pay the few bucks !!!!

Coach, Ass coach, stats coach, TM, physio 12 players x2 = 29

Score Table/ Statistician/court announcer =7

Ref = 2/3

Live stream staff =2/3

Game Commissioner and floor wipers = 5 ALL IN ALL THERES YOUR 50

29?
Are they sharing coaching staff, managers and physio?

might have to to meet the 50 hehehe.
In all seriousness yes the theory is correct. No spectators at Nbl1 or Big V under current settings

So wtf is a stats coach? No one takes 12 on the road. You are talking home games only.

At this point, why do they need the few bucks? Anyway, am sure people would put a few bucks in ... even if they can't be there in person.

Reason some of the adult (ie, non junior) leagues are not playing is really because they haven’t been able to train and there is a heightened risk of injury.

Reason the non-junior leagues are not playing is because the BV is not a strong enough voice and have not been able to put forward rationale arguments sufficiently strongly. Other interest groups have been stronger.

Feel sorry for all of the refs and others who actually make a living out of this.
