Coach's Challenge in NBL

The Hungry Jack's National Basketball League (NBL) will introduce a coach’s challenge system this season.

Each team will be entitled to one coach’s challenge per game and retain it until a challenge is unsuccessful.

A coach can only challenge a personal foul called on their team, or an out of bounds at any stage of the game.

All other events, including non-calls, fouls by the opposition team, violations, act of shooting situations, unsportsmanlike fouls, technical fouls, or situations already covered by the IRS replay system, cannot be challenged.

If a coach still has their challenge to use at the end of full time, then it can be carried into overtime.

To request a challenge, a coach must first call a timeout, and as such, must have at least one timeout remaining in the relevant period.

If a challenge is unsuccessful, the coach cannot make a challenge for the rest of the game.

"The coach’s challenge introduces an all-new strategic element for coaches to consider," Hungry Jack’s NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said.

“It will foster greater transparency around referee’s decisions and give fans an insight into the reasoning behind calls.

“We have studied the NBA’s coach’s challenge system closely and spoken with them about how the system is best implemented and are grateful for those insights.”

All decisions resulting from a coach’s challenge will be made by an official in the NBL Replay Centre.

Halleluiah!

As it stood, one challenge only - right or wrong,was ridiculous IMO. The one that is right is proof that officials DO make wrong calls. Then the rule goes on to "say", "officials will only make ONE mistake per game!" Phooey!

"To request a challenge, a coach must first call a timeout, and as such, must have at least one timeout remaining in the relevant period."

So a coach must burn a timeout to get a challenge? Hardly a positive initiative

You only burn a timeout if the challenge is unsuccessful. If the challenge is successful you retain your timeout.

""To request a challenge, a coach must first call a timeout, and as such, must have at least one timeout remaining in the relevant period."
I actually agree with combining the challenge with a time out. If it was open-slather, NO restrictions, at all, then we could have a challenge on every call, and everyone of them would cost time. We apparently have too many delays in games, as it is. This way coaches have a limit on challenges(of time-outs left), and we, the fans, are all used to time-outs during games. So no extra time is devoted to challenges, especially frivolous, tactical challenges.

"So a coach must burn a timeout to get a challenge?" Hardly a positive initiative."
That sounds like "complaining about the noise when opportunity knocks!"
Shit, as a coach, I'd be calling challenges all game long and while they work them out I'd be having time-outs. Sensible.
That's a positive initiative.

If Gleeson was still coaching in the NBL he would want more than 1 as he would use it in the first minute of the game.

Gleeson was the only coach during the NBL Cup who didn't use the coaches challenge

RobT - you wouldnt have a challenge at every call as you only get 1 per game (if indeed you are incorrect with the challenge).

Would rather have 12m quarters then having this silly coaches challenge.

You're never getting 12 min quarters.
