Crocs Together At Last

Well today is the first day the Crocs can say they have had all players under the one roof. Rosell Ellis was the last to arrive, but he wasted no time in showing what he was bought in to do. Having been off the plane for a total of eleven minutes, Rosell or Roe to his teammates, had his first rebound in Crocs green. Between him and Ben Pepper , my rebounding energy may be better served cherry picking this season. This is a skill that I learnt from Brad Newley.

Galen Young seems to have a great feel for the game and if he continues to find me, he will lead the league in assists for sure.

As for the rest of us that have been in the tropics for a while, we are just happy to have some new bodies to compete against.

No, I did not forget Brad Sheridan. He is giving us his best Jane Fonda stretching workout while we practice. "Rowdy" has a back issue right now so he spends his time watching practice from a horizontal position.

Now that everybody is here, lets bring on some games!

This lineup looks good however I feel it has something missing. Why has the great Andrew "mouthguard" Bridges not been signed up after his memorable 82 points against Gaze.

JR how will Mick Cedar go this year?

I'm actually hearing what you are saying about the great Andrew Bridges. Very underrated at the ABA level, but a 6'3 red headed power forward in the NBL......there is no place for him. If my memory serves me right, he made a great decision and married into money.

Mick Cedar has taken his game to a new level this pre season. He has found third gear more often than previous years so this spells danger for opposition teams. I guess some of the credit must be given to one Rohan Short. If this is a name you have not heard before he is our very short (in stature) assistant coach.

Thanks for the question, and look for Cedar to have an impact in games this year.

'they' are talking about a 7 or 8 finish this year. now looking at the roster and that of the other teams, you would have to think we would be top four.. wouldn't you?

It is all early days right now. Like last year many of the "experts" had us in the bottom four teams. I guess we will just have to do the same this year. Prove them all wrong. All team are excited about their chances at this time of the year. Although we are confident as a group, we will get a better feel once we start our preseason games. Hope we can please you by season's end Magic Man!

the team certainly looks to be 100% better than last year, now that newly has gone, we might not get pipped at the post so many times... can i say that? i looked at some footage of GY playing OS, he looks like like he might be able to get you the when you want it ( so all the time), goos times this year i reckon.
how is your form coming into the season?

Galen is certainly fitting in well. He has a great feel for the game and I think all of us will benefit from his passing abilities. By next weekend we should have a better feel for the team and its performance as we head to Cairns for three games.
