Helena Saunders thank you for your honesty. There are many other Indigenous players who have similar stories. Proud to have played along side you as a very talented athlete and as vice captain of the team. Keen to hear from others. https://t.co/sbOPwqINOi

I hope that more Indigenous players come out and tell their stories if they are comfortable doing so. It should be a giant wake-up call to netball administrators at every level. Honestly, the stories make me want to cry. We MUST do better.davoParticipantSeptember 23, 2020 at 12:13 pmPost count: 8
hey Ian – do you have a record of all of the old CBT teams? Could it be a project to update the Wikipedia pages for all of the CBT clubs, so there is a record of the players from 1997 onwards?
It looks like Swifts is the only team who have done it properly:Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 23, 2020 at 4:46 pmPost count: 5622
Yes, I’ve got something saved to my computer. I HOPE the 1997 teams are there, but I’m not sure. I know this doesn’t take away from Helena’s argument at all, but believe me, she wouldn’t be the only player from 1997 who can’t find a record of her having played. Record-keeping was very poor back then. It’s difficult to find anything about the opening season in 1997.
Tell you what davo. I’m going to start putting the info I have about the old Mobil League and CBT up on the forum now.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 23, 2020 at 4:51 pmPost count: 5622
Just checked davo, sadly I don’t have a list of players from all the teams in 1997. I think I may have had it at one stage, but I’ve lost it.davoParticipantSeptember 23, 2020 at 5:16 pmPost count: 8
Thanks for checking Ian – do you have any CBT player info from after 1997? Do we contact the member organisations and ask for the info? Surely they have it?Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 23, 2020 at 6:01 pmPost count: 5622
They really should have a list of every player who’s played for them.Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 24, 2020 at 7:45 amPost count: 5622Ian HarkinModeratorSeptember 25, 2020 at 1:07 amPost count: 5622
I haven’t heard anything: ‘Forgotten Firebird’ yet to receive apology from Netball Australia
