Australian basketball legend Shane Heal, who was suspended from coaching the WNBL Sydney Flames over bullying complaints, has launched a defamation bid over a "humiliating" media statement issued by the club after the allegations came to light.

Mr Heal was suspended from the club in January 2023 following bullying claims from multiple players.

The Flames issued a statement after his suspension, which stated “welfare and safety” of players were at the “heart” of the matter.

“That is our sole concern at this time, and we will always maintain focus on that,” the statement read.

I guess it's the only way he can earn a living from basketball now.

One of the golden rules of media is that anyone involved in public life is referred to as a 'star', whether they were an extra on one episode of Neighbours or sit on the bench for an NBL team. The purpose? To get your to read the article of course. Annoying, but once you start noticing it, you will become less and less flabbergasted when you see it. Sorry if you were expecting accurate reporting/headlines.

And if they don't name the person in the headline, it's usually not someone as exciting as you expected. Best to avoid giving that news source any attention for doing this.
