    I believe the latest is that he'll be back as long as he's right to go, which he is expected to be.

    This would have had me excited a month or two ago.

    Mine.

    Obviously a very hateable player made worse by the fact that he started at the Tigers' biggest rival and then moved to what became their (temporary) biggest rival.

    Pretty good.

    Nuggets - started off by getting back Afflallo for Fournier which is an upgrade at least in the short term, then got a Euro centre who is supposedly ready to go now, Garry Harris who...

    IMO, this is not just about the Melbourne Tigers fans. Tigers fans are emotional about this change, but this change is much broader than that. It is about general fan recognition. The NBL needs...

    Slepoy said he was surprised at the anger when the name change was announced.

    They clearly misread the situation. At a basic level they didn't realise just how emotionally attached people get to...

    Indeed and I did like the rhetorical/sarcastic question in the recent SMH article about Spectres fans still waiting.

    Ok, greed is overstating it, but it's still about the $$$.

    And as I said before, the "staying afloat" bit is bemusing to me. 12 or 13 years ago the club was pretty much dead. Right now they're in...

    This is it.

    It's the trashing of the history of the club for greed.

    It's a long time since I went to the tennis there and it's not a really big issue, but I'm pretty sure the basketball court runs the other way to the tennis court. And I think that photo you put up...

    I've always thought it had to be somewhat overstated. I've been playing for almost 20 years and I think I've played with 1 rep player, maybe 2 in that time.

    They always mention the 250k-odd...

    Good times, in such a frustrating/annoying way. Bradtke being 35 (or so) and playing what seemed like 47 minutes per game was both great - to see how hard he still worked - and completely stupid.

    I'm willing to stick out a year if a new team comes in, otherwise I'll have to try this.

    HA! It is much better hating Worth than liking him.
