    That money really could have helped NA out enormously.

    This is quite huge aye?
    I’m assuming this affects West Coast Fever pretty badly too.

    What a mess :cry:
    Netball Australia, Players Association and others could have all handled this so much better.
    Really disappointing for Fever losing their Roy Hill sponsorship given they had given the strongest possible response that they supported the sponsorship. Can understand though Hancock pulling both even though bitterly disappointing.
    Hopefully Diamonds and Fever can find an alternative sponsor but not overly confident (especially for Diamonds)

    I am hopeful, perhaps naively, that the environment in W.A. (much more accepting of contibution of resource industry) and the fact Fever never raised concerns about industry will mean other sponsors won’t be as deterred.

    I would’ve done the same. Take ya millions to other sport that will appreciate it, let alone a sport thats in such a huge financial crisis. Agreed i dont see NA getting anything as lucrative or anything at all from a sponsor any time soon.

    Surely some heads will have to roll over this. Notice how they said the players had no issue wearing the dress, sounds more like NA and the players couldn’t agree. Publicity for our sport for all the wrong reasons. Embarrassing

    Wonder if the Players Association was asking for more money? Definitely aint more money for them to ask for really.

    Was West Coast Fever a seperate sponsorship from the same group then?
