A red mist moment. I hear the race card has been played....

RE: NBL: Breakers and stuff
@mariner4life does he shoot all cross armed like his brother Lonzo?
no, he sort of just chucks it up, from pretty low as well, with heaps of loop, but it's pretty fucking accurate.
As good as he and his brother are, it's crazy that neither of them learned good shooting fundamentals. He better develop a higher release if he wants to thrive in the NBA
He has good size for a guard and he’s quick with the side step back, so I think he will he be okay.
RE: Aussie Politics
Q&A can’t stand it. I don’t care who’s on it, the way the show is managed by producers, host and audience is appalling.
Saw the clips of last Monday’s and it’s not the first time we have seen this. It’s no surprise that the ABC give these people a platform and the lack of a counter position - again unsurprising.
A review has been initiated, am I wishful thinking that someone is actually going to be taken to task for this. Or will it be one of those confirmation bias reviews...
RE: NBA season 2019/20
Suns beat Sixers (albeit sans Embiid, but we also didn't have Ayton) to go 5-2 and second in the West. Simmons was poor and not even the best Australian on the court.
I'm waiting for the crash, like a 1-7 stretch.
They have a good coach and a core that is building.
RE: 2020 All Blacks Squad
@junior I think their skill strengths are quite different. Goodhue is a genuine centre that runs good lines and hits the line quite hard. ALB is more a stepper/footwork guy in attack but has a bruising defensive game and probably hits the tackle as hard as Tana did. Don’t think size is a problem when both are north of 6’1 and 95kg.
RE: [Poll] Next All Black Coach
As much as I can see that the negatives around Fozzie aren’t nearly as big as some make out and that he may be in a strong place to put together a good coaching unit I am also beginning to think that, given the player rebuilding situation this may also be a good opportunity to refresh the hereditary situation that has developed.
Having continuity is great but eventually it gets more and more difficult to get fresh ideas from the same group.
The last group showed a fixation on beating the rush defence because they wanted to continue an attacking style of their creation. In doing that they gambled on ignoring some key RWC knockout lessons around experienced heads.
Maybe a new dynasty can be created and this is the prime opportunity to start it?
Much depends on the running mates
I get that the appointment of a new head coach is now like a package deal and appears to be a key factor in determining a successful applicant.
However I’m not sure it should lend so much weight given when there are changes to an assistant mid-cycle, who is brought in has no bearing on the head coach’s position/contract does it?
