I like the changes. Always loved extra time, so stoked about that. I think 5 minutes is a good amount of time too. No way broadcasters would go for the usual 14 mins.
I’m confused by how many people on social media are so against the rolling subs though. I think it really doesn’t make much difference at all. The only differences I can see are
a) It eliminates the ridiculous fake injuries
b) It allows teams to make their changes quicker, as they don’t have to wait for the umpire to be able to call time.
c) The flow of the game isn’t interrupted
All positives for everyone involved. I’ve seen comments saying they’re turning it into basketball, but really this rule doesn’t change the game, it just makes the substitution process smoother. And I am a netball traditionalist talking here!NettySuperFanParticipantFebruary 6, 2020 at 11:52 pmPost count: 265
But basketball doesn’t have rolling subs?schmeetleParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 12:58 amPost count: 302
Rolling subs takes us further (again) from international netball rules so when the Diamonds come together to train and play internationally they are yet again put at a disadvantage by the SSN.CharlesWBParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 2:09 amPost count: 43
I have always supported rolling subs. The pretend to be injured scam really was out of place in a professional league.
I also have spoken of my dislike of extra time in the regular season, but it is a change I can live with, although I do wonder what will happen when a broadcast game goes into extra time. Presumably absolutely zero post-game wrap-up on the broadcast.CharlesWBParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 2:13 amPost count: 43
I had not thought of the rolling subs not being a part of international netball. That will impact the Diamonds, how much we will see.
Having said that, I think rolling subs is the only part of SSN that the INF should look at making a part of the international game. The fake injury scenario really is amateurish.mcleodParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 3:44 amPost count: 1711
It’s becoming like Hockey, both field and Ice, they have rolling subs. On off, on off, on off.
Come international Netball time, I’ll be interested who can run out 60min, without having to have a rest on the bench.
Guess they are still having the time outs, so more rest time for the players.Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 7, 2020 at 4:40 amPost count: 20982
I just don’t like the part that players can come on and off while play is still going on. I remember watching Fast5 and it was driving me nuts. A shooter would be in the play, then the ball would go down the other end, come back, and all of a sudden she’s not there any more. She’s been replaced by another shooter when you weren’t looking. I just don’t like that.
I think just make whatever changes you want, but you have to wait for a stoppage in play, like a goal. At the recent internationals, they were making changes between goals and it was working great. All except the part that the players had to pretend they were injured. Just simply get rid of that. In fact, get rid of the rule that it’s the player having to sub themselves off. The coach should be able to come to the sideline, just get the umpire’s attention, and make the change themselves.ClayhayParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 6:59 amPost count: 18
Bonus Points, ugh. Who are the 84% who like them! annoyingAnonymousFebruary 7, 2020 at 8:27 amPost count: 44
The new VNSL protocol just does away with the fake injuries. Player calls for time and when asked why can now say substitution. Everything else is the same. I prefer this to rolling subs as in Fast 5. It’s also something the INF are against.JinxiboParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 8:43 pmPost count: 1202
Has LA commented about this yet?JinxiboParticipantFebruary 7, 2020 at 9:02 pmPost count: 1202
I think NA needs to consider what it’s priorities are?
Rolling subs sounds good and of course coaches will take full advantage of the ability to swap players in and out during a game without stoppages. I don’t believe coaches will use it to test their benches, instead I think it will be used to patch-up players with injuries and get them back on sooner or pull players off to give them additional instructions.
I do agree that the fake injury thingy is annoying, so why not simply get rid of this rule?
I’m assuming timeouts are still allowed? that being the case will players ever play a full 15mins quarter with no breaks as they do at international level? LA and the Diamonds will naturally build this into their training but it will not replace doing it week in and week out.
If the main driver for there changes is money, bigger crowds, money, more excitement and money why not just play fast 5? you get rolling subs shorter more focused quarters (hence no need for a bonus point and more TV ads) and a 3 point shot !!!!!!!Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 13, 2020 at 2:11 pmPost count: 20982
