36ers Schedule released

Hope you like Sunday games! Horrible schedule for mine. Worst I can remember. Hopefully the team works though.

The Sixers are so far removed from being an SA team it is ridiculous. Have nothing in common with Sixer teams of the past. A bunch of blow ins from top to bottom, that long term hardcore Sixer fans have zero interest in following.

My understanding from someone at the league is that Nick actually requested all of the Sunday games to be as early as possible - to make them family friendly games.

Does anyone left at the club have any idea?

Agree Oberon. To bring Conner back, have him quarantine for 28 days, then tell him part of Mojave agreement is a starting spot, then sack him when he expresses such a decision is an 'interesting' one to make without consulting him is a DISGRACE.

was as one eyed as the next 36er faithful up until the way they treated Creek after the 2017 Grand Final Series

that was the end of the 36ers for me

they used to pride themselves on being a very accessible and 'family friendly' club

you used to go to games and see the same familiar friends and it felt like family

the access to the players after the games was really good

then they did creek dirty

and moved to the entertainment centre (i get it they wanted more supporters etc) but they should have only played a few games there against the bigger teams i.e. perth/united that always have good crowd support

they stopped really listening to the supporters at all and now it just isnt the same vibe anymore at games

only DJ has hung around and the way they handled the kevin white/joey wright incident didnt help at all and now hiring of connor henry and his departure...

team looks ok on paper but they have sold their soul a litle bit each year since the end of 2017

yes they will get good crowds (guessing if restrictions ease will always be around or more than 70% capacity)

but it just isnt the same

i dont mind sunday games but definitely prefer friday night or saturday night games... maybe they didnt want to interfere with the soccer games at hindmarsh?

What are peoples issues with it exactly?

People wanting more Saturday night home games or?

If you're Adelaide you get good amount of extra coverage via FTA which probably helps with giving value to your sponsors and early afternoon Sunday is probably prime "bring the children to the basketball" type family time I’d imagine?

Not as good for those wanting Saturday night bball and hit up the local bars after

KET,

For my situation it's difficult as Sundays are the main district training times. The earlier on Sunday, the more problematic it becomes.

Fridays aren't great but are good in December and January when games are not on. Saturday's perfect.

I presume that there is some research in the Adelaide market that you don't need the district bball crowd, and to put games on at times that clash with district bball training can produce bigger crowd numbers from a broader audience.

If so, all the power to the club.

At the point travel becomes onerous, wouldn't people prefer to get home by dinner time on Sunday opposed to very very late on a Sat/Friday night?

I’d have thought the more travel the more reason early or mid Sunday arvo is beneficial?

The convenience argument on that doesn’t stack up - sounds more like "I don’t want to do anything on a Sunday arvo"?

If that’s the real argument, then fine - but if you asked various groups of people what their preference is, you’re going to get varying opinions, and the Sunday arvo seems to be least inconvenient-family friendly maximising, so from a 36ers perspective it’s probably great.

I think maybe Adelaide loses out on the “professionals after work” type crowd

" For my situation it's difficult as Sundays are the main district training times. The earlier on Sunday, the more problematic it becomes."

Absolutely fair point - but I think young district kids play on Saturday, I don't think it’s a matter of eliminating district as a whole market, I think district just ends up covering 7 days a week through trainings and games depending on which level and age.

Then you should know KET that District on a Saturday is over by 12:30. Hardly an issue for families wanting to go to a Saturday night 36ers game.

A 7:30pm tip off with 10min quarters isn't that late a night. It's also an event, a family outing, a chance for mates to go out together. Like it or not Daytime/Afternoon just isn't the same.

AFL going to nights for this reason, NBL going to afternoon because it doesn't rate anyway so easy to fill time when ratings are always going to be low.

Using Creek as a reason for not supporting the club is fast losing its validity.

a) Its a long time ago now, so many things have happened since, when are you going to let it go?
b) Mitch Creek is hardly a Saint.
c) The club has 'generally' / more often than not made the right decisions.

NBL has Saturday night games - your complaint here is 36ers don't get enough of the allocation for your liking.

The NBL decides the fixture - they likely incorporate:

> The optimal spread of games (ie not chucking all of them on a sat night)
> TV partners - the ones that are actually paying $$$ now; and those that provide FTA reach but aren’t going to give it at prime time (10Peach)
> Team input (don’t try to overstate this - it’s one factor that the NBL needs to consider and balance for 10 teams that all probably want the same thing)
> Venue availability
> Logistics including ensuring each club plays each other 3 times and associated travel
> Externalities such as Covid/Gov regulations

Sunday afternoon games whilst it’s not going to please everyone, I don’t think 36ers will be complaining at a very family friendly time.

You can’t be convenient or please everybody- I don’t think the small number of district players that happen to be training on a Sunday afternoon - if there are any - would be troubling to the 36ers.

Whilst someone like myself prefers a sat night game and hitting the bars up after, the reality is there would be plenty of young families preferring to go on a Sunday arvo to give them something to do during the day.

That just might not be you or me.

Maybe take onboard that the 36ers wouldn’t have ultimate control in this, and what’s inconvenient to your particular situation isn’t necessarily inconvenient for others or as far reaching on district basketball as you’re peddling.

Perhaps put the gun down - a good portion of people on here are from Adelaide and most of us have spent a substantial portion of our lives around district basketball.

Your posts come across like you’re writing to The Advertiser editor in outrage that our precious parks are being taken over by some nefarious company - won’t somebody think of the children!

but unlike previous years i wont know most of the players

creek is one of the nicest players i have ever met, has he done some silly things off court? no doubt he has, not denying he isnt a saint

name a right decision the club has made since 2017 that has has the majority of loyal long time members support? (maybe that is the issue...its the loyal members fault for not wanting change...communication is key and they have left members in the dark for a while...)

KET you're changing your story now. I thought it was Saturday District that was an issue?

No one is saying all games should be Saturday night. People understand the various ways in which a draw gets pulled. 8/14 is over the top. Considering 1 is a Tuesday between Christmas and NYs and one a Monday NOT the Adelaide Cup Long Weekend but the Monday after (makes total sense) I'd say people have a fair complaint to make.

The NBL advertising of this Schedule is they're putting the fans first. They're not putting Adelaide fans first by scheduling ONE Saturday twilight game for the whole season.

It is however reality of where the 36ers have dropped as a brand. Apart from Cairns I'd suggest every other club would have a better National following now.

" KET you're changing your story now. I thought it was Saturday District that was an issue"

Changing what story? I'm arguing there isn’t much of a district issue flat out - but if you’re going to pedal that there is one, Sunday afternoon isn’t going to be a bad slot!

I said district is played or trained 7 days a week - so it’s going to inconvenience someone regardless of slot and Saturday is no different to that.

I bet it would be an inconvenience to those who have Sunday morning 8.30am training to go to!

“ They're not putting Adelaide fans first by scheduling ONE Saturday twilight game for the whole season.”

Depends on the fan - you mean they’re not putting *you* first.

Learn to live outside your own bubble - 36ers have been clear as day in their attempts to get young families in - I’d imagine young families are the “winners” in this.

36ers have 12 Sunday games, Melbourne United 10 - I think it’s around the mark?

Perth aren’t going to have Sunday 1pm games at home - that would be a 10am game for them. Even a midday game their time is a bit rich. They’re going to be more Thu/Fri/Sat evening game slanted as a result.

Would I prefer a few more Saturday home games? Sure - but it looks pretty advantageous for Adelaide if your aim is to get families going and have more FTA exposure to increase value for your sponsors - which is the point I made above that was so strongly shot down with “you don’t know Adelaide rar rar rar”.

We told a contracted better player (Hodgson) to explore his options because we were signing Harry Froling. The relationship with Froling soured after just one year despite winning NBL rookie of the year and then he too left a year later after an underwhelming season. We lost a quite serviceable Hodgson out of that.

1. Taking Mitch Creek to the Supreme Court to try to void his NBA contract

Agreed this was a screw up, one that hopefully we have since redeemed ourselves from with an exemplar like Josh Giddey.
2. Hiring JVG in any capacity let lone GM after what he did to the Kings

I initially agreed with this but he had done more good than bad which is a good start. Are there any GM's that don't make mistakes?
3. Giving Joey Wright a new 5 year contract in 2017 despite already being under contract at the time.

At that time, Wright had runs on the board, including successive playoff appearances and a GF, then another GF after that year. I agree 5 years is abnormal but at the time we were contending.
4. The Terrence Ferguson bungled $400K NBA buyout payment.

Agreed a screw up.
5. Losing Nathan Sobey to the Bullets.

Sobey wanted to leave to play PG for the Boomers coach, and fell out with Wright. Is that on the 6ers management?
6. Losing local Majok Deng to the Taipans.

No loss.
7. Signing imports Jerome Randle (again) and Eric Griffin and supposedly paying Griffin big money even though he couldn't be played alongside DJ.

Deshon Taylor was injured for a large part of that season anyway. Griffin is a bad call, in hindsight. Keyword hindsight.
8. Firing Joey Wright in 2020 despite 2 years left on his contract.

The 5 years was a gamble and it didn't. Both parties knew Wright's time was getting stale, isn't it a credit to the management to seek a new direcion rather than stick with the same thing that hadn't got to the playoffs in the prior 2 years? The parting of ways was by mutual agreement just to be clear.
9. Signing Conner Henry to a 3 year deal.

I didn't love this choice but it was a senior coach with credentials and some achievement since his short stint in Perth. Again it was a gamble, in hindsight a bad one.
10. Telling Matt Hodgson to leave because we're singing Harry Froling.

Cannot comment as I do not know Matt's motives, but he has hardly set the world on fire in Brisbane. His most notable achievement is thinking he would opt out of the covid contract provisions. We tried Hodgson with DJ a few years, it didn't work, what indicator do you have that it would flourish?
11. Losing Anthony Drmic and Froling to the Bullets

Froling no loss at all. Drmic was servicable but again has not set the world on fire in Brissie. If he was asking big money, then it was the right decision to let him explore options.
12. Losing Jack McVeigh to Tasmania.

Another serviceable player and up and coming. Would have liked to keep him at the right price, but if TT are paying overs would you want to pay overs for McVeigh.
13. Firing Conner Henry despite 2 years left on his contract. Presumably assistant coach Jamie Pearlman has been fired too after only one year.
Agreed poor decision to get him in in the first place but again we at least have the metal to admit wrong and seek a different direction (I didn't say better direction, see below)
14. Signing rookie head coach CJ Bruton to a 3 year deal.

Agreed. I am not sold on this idea, but we were in a position where coaches were turning us down. This is a gamble again. But so is Scott Roth and Scott Morrison and Adam Forde.

I am no 6ers blind follower, I am on record calling out poor behaviour and decisions. But I am willing to give them a bit of rope and let poor decisions (Creek) from years back that have no impact today colour my view of the team. The concern was no one wanted to play for the Sixers after that, since then Isaac Humphries, the number 6 pick in the draft, and Mitch McCarron.

^ I think that's a more pragmatic analysis on the 36ers.

It’s a bit weird calling signing Froling a screwup and then losing Froling a second screw up on the basis of them signing him in the first place.

FWIW I think re-signing him was the right thing to do at the time he had real potential and then he didn’t go further so letting him leave was the right move.

I’d have like to have kept Drmic. Same with McVeigh but right price - not sure that’s a screwup if they’re paying overs.

Wright 5 years was a mistake - even a brilliant coach you’d give 3 right?

Moving on was right because it became untenable - the decision was right - whether the culture was in part due to bad management that could be deemed a screwup.

CH - I think ditching him so late in the piece wasn’t ideal - they probably should have made a decision earlier and stuck with it. Shouldn’t have taken so long for wires to cross or come to the realisation that he’s not our guy.

There have been good recruits - Giddey, IH, McCarron.

Questionable import choices.

Not including a third import for the start of this season IMO will amount to a screwup on the basis of there being a glaring issue which they haven’t filled and probably won’t by sounds of it.

Titan 17 got called out.. people who love basketball want to see the sixers succeed ... how can you claim.managemeng are poor when that's there driving motivation. Nature of the era is the consistent migration and evolution of teams - no longer is it family and longevity .. in / out revolving door to find success... have feeling this year be very special and sure t17 be on the gravy train .. praising the foresight of all and sundry ... cj lead us all the way to that chip .... the guy is a winner ...
