"I'd hazard at a guess that Maryborough hasn't got any nbl member driving to Melbourne to watch them every week. It’s over a two hour drive and 169 Kim’s, facts never been your strong point.
He’s a Victorian, yes, if that’s your point, all those premierships you have won in the last decade would be Sydney’s as the base of your team came from nsw, yes they moved interstate. it is allowed.
Just by the way Busselton is close to the same distance to Perth, it’s certainly not a suburb of Perth, or to make you happy, the nbl could put a team there."
I simply made the point that a Melbourne team had the inside running, even before money was put on the table.
You're the one making a big song & dance about the fact that he grew up in a country town just outside Melbourne.
And I said "about" 150k. Historically distances were measured from I think either Town-Halls or Post Offices, but sure let's go with 169km. Still puts it just outside Melbourne.
"Two hour drive"? well that's just because Melbournians don't know how to drive and ride everywhere on Trams.
And whilst I don't know what NBL team he followed, given I think there were still multiple Melbourne teams when he was born, I do know that he's a Collingwood supporter. Guess what city they're based in.
Premierships? The Eagles have only won one in the last decade.
As for the Wildcats, Knight came from Tasmanian, Jawai from QLD, Wagstaff from Canberra, Redhage from Nebraska, Cotton from Arizona, etc. Kay came from Tamworth yes, but according to your logic that puts in a different galaxy compared to Sydney.
