    I’m very interested to see how the held ball calls are going to be umpired in the grand final.

    Two of the best proponents of baulking 1-2-3 times as they shoot… and the calls in the round games have pretty much fallen onto only one of them.

    :scratch:

    (Where is that NS poster from years past who used to an measure and analyse the held balls after most games??)

    Schmeetle, just because a player baulks the shot doesn’t automatically mean its a held ball just the same as a player looking at a few options before passing isnt. Umpires at this level should be counting to 3 the same way every time a player has ball in hand.

    Courtney Bruce – “I’ve played her a lot. We probably know how to get (on) each other’s nerves, but that’s the beauty of netball and that’s why we love playing against each other.”

    Reading between the lines it means- I know how to rough her up and smile sweetly after I get caught, Caitlin smiles graciously and just gets on with it which annoys me

    JBass; I know that. However there has always been great inconsistency with held ball calls. As demonstrated by the NS member who did quite detailed analysis.

    I remember the great IVD being astonished when she was called for held ball after taking a couple of seconds to right herself from a massive split and almost over balance, then line up the shot and then “bleep” held ball.

    Thwaites, ATN (and in the past Prats), Romelda when un-tieing herself from her splits all take longer than 3 seconds multiple times during a game.

    Nothing sweet about that Cheshire Cat smile.

    I can understand that too just saying that as long as its consistent the umpires should be counting to 3 rather than counting the balks on the shot as these can happen quite quickly and within 3 seconds. Im very much pro held ball for shooters and believe there are quite a few in the league who get away with it including JF and Steph Wood to add to those you mentioned.

    Wow not much love for Fever on the forum. I hope they win tomorrow.
    One player does not make a team! The Fever team know how to use their weapon. They are a well coached and skilled team.
    I like Caitlin Thwaites as much as everyone else but I think Fever have the players to take her out of the game.
    Not long to find out!

    the umpires should be counting to 3

    Hopefully they count to four! Most people start counting at ‘1,2,3 …’. To time when a full three seconds has elapsed, you blow the whistle when you get to 4 – so, ‘1,2,3, BLOW!’
    Of course, if you’re smart enough to start at zero, then you can stop at three :wacko:

    Does anyone know what the backup plan is for when channel 9 cut to the press conference in Victoria? It’s scheduled for 1pm today so I’m concerned cause previously I’ve missed a lot of games because of that ☹️
