Re: NBA season 2017/18 - general discussion

Great comeback by Celtics, Horford with some key buckets in the clutch..... Kyrie must be worth a punt for MVP at this early stage of season...... Definitely got the narrative angle covered...... Stepping out of Brons shadow, in aftermath of Haywoods injury. That was a poor loss for OKC, the shooti...

I will take your word for it on Perth and RL. But in terms of growth at junior level and sustained spectator interest in North America, I think a model like the Wolfpack is more likely to sustain long term growth than someone trying to build from amateur RU club foundations and expecting a fanbase ...

Yes, I know that the main source of talent for Vic underage teams is clubs (mostly islanders right?) but the backbone of the RU community in Melbourne is the private schools, Scotch College etc. It's a combination of club and schools, the schoolboy level is pretty average standard to be fair, but s...

2. These guys have no cardio, they are blowing out of their arse 20 minutes in. The game is faster than rugby. The players are smaller and you don't get the set piece stoppages.

Re: NBA season 2017/18 - general discussion

It's been a great opening couple of weeks for the NBA, upsets aplenty, GSW not as dominant as expected. The Cavs and OKC struggling a little with integrating all their new pieces. Simmons and L. Ball bringing the hype, loads of close games, I'm loving it.
