My Lips Are Still Sealed


Basketball Australia made a public statement late today regarding the future of the NBL, but my lips remain closed for now.

Here is what they released.

Basketball Australia Chief Executive Officer Larry Sengstock released the following statement with regard to the on-going Expression of Interest process for the new men’s elite national competition to replace the National Basketball League.

“The Board of Basketball Australia held a meeting last night during which the status of the Expression of Interest process was discussed in detail,” said Sengstock.

“Until the Board is able to clarify a number of outstanding issues they are simply not yet in a position to announce details of the outcome of the EOI process. The complexity of this process makes it necessary to take this additional time, as it is vital that we get it right.

“We do however hope to be in a position to make a full statement with regard to the new national men’s competition shortly. Until we are in a position to announce the ultimate outcome of the EOI, we cannot comment on the specifics of the applications of each of the individual respondents for commercial confidentiality reasons.”

The longer they take the harder it will be for the teams to attract both sponsors and talent. The opposite of what the league wants.

Very true.

Not to mention all the decent players will be chasing foreign league contracts and won't be available to play anyway.

This is bordering on a debacle.
