Is Zuluboy a Sen multi? No actual poster could be this needy and obsessed with NZ rugby.

In all seriousness I always got the impression Northern Hemisphere posters watch more SOuthern Hemisphere rugby (Or did 10+ years ago) as Super Rugby/Tri-Nations was basically the saturday morning. Certainly when I played, loads of us would discuss the morning game(s) and ironically be barely watching whatever English game was left on in the afternoon after a match after the game.

That led me to broady believe NH posters knew more about professional players down south than the other way round. Whether this makes us more knowledgeable I don't know. I always assumed in terms of coaching knowhow, the grassroots of New Zealand would be the best knowledge in that sense of developing players.

I’m sure many NBA fans keep a close eye on the Spanish and Australian leagues.

What I like about NBA is the best team play. Majority black players in a majority white population
The team allowed on merit will always have the best stats

If the vast majority of NH posters were current players that might make sense. However I'd suggest they are not so it does not.

Maybe he feels comfortable on an anonymous chat board to express his inner child.

Shouldn''t PR bordies only be allowed to w@nk on about international teams from their birth country or place they've lived for the last 5 years?

Neither would be true for him and so a banning is in order

Was thinking an Anon multi, but then even Anon isn't this obsessed. Zuluboy really needs to seek professional help, the ABs are totally in his head and to be honest its not healthy for him.

That it is at least in part largely down to participation rates in sport.

Correct. Although the majority are whites their participation rates in basketball are lower than blacks and that is ok as the team is picked only on merit

Pro sports in the US went through their transformations when South Africa were still deep in apartheid. However, they were shameful in their sports leagues prior to that as well.
