NBL and unvaccinated players
NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger has revealed the league is considering introducing a replacement player system for unvaccinated players for away teams during the 2021/22 season.
"We are not a legislative government, so we are not going to mandate that someone puts something into their body if it is against a cultural or religious belief for example.
How pissed off are people going to be if their players, particularly star players don't get vaccinated and can’t play half the games?
If you’re a club - why hire players that might not be able to play half the games?
Are players that don’t play all the games going to get full pay because contracts are based on time periods instead of number of games?
