This gives Fever a bit more of a future beyond Fowler and some stronger options in attack.
I agree she’s stronger at GS, perhaps once she has worked on her GA game she will be better in GS. Similar to Garbin I suppose.TullyParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 8:48 amPost count: 914
Glasgow is one of the best young shooters in Australia. With a full season she should be pushing the Diamonds squad.
In saying this I really hope she doesn’t spend too much time on the bench. Fowler has GS wrapped up and ATN was immense in their finals run and complements Fowler perfectly. Fowler sits quite high in the circle and ends up under the post With one step but that does limit entry points for a GA. I should say I think ATN was great at working around that.
I hope to see Glasgow in the Diamonds in 12 months.JbssParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 9:29 amPost count: 230
Can’t say I love this as Glasgow is such an amazing GS but hopefully the Fever might rest Fowler a bit more next season?Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 9:52 amPost count: 1928
I see Glasgow’s future at GS, especially in a more moving circle but Fowler needs to get some bench time for that to become a reality.Ian HarkinModeratorOctober 25, 2020 at 9:52 amPost count: 10437TrollyParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 10:40 amPost count: 5
So….this move may have been planned for some time. It seems very like the situation 2 years ago when Alice was contracted at the expense of Medhurst. Fever were in the final and wouldn’t want to unsettle the team prior to playing but had a replacement player lined up. Sad for Stanton. I’m not sure what Glasgow gains unless she gets significant court time, but, who is benched? Fowler, who their whole game plan is built around or Alice, who plays her role (as playmaker and feeder) really well. Maybe Fowler only plans to stay 1 more year and Fever are planning ahead? Hmmm, then what happens to Alice? Will she be able to play a more conventional ga role, putting up more shots? I’m perplexed!Sarah0ParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 11:54 amPost count: 35
I don’t see it as being ‘who gets benched?’ Situation. It’s more like a Vixens attack end situation with versatility and options to throw out there.Netballcrazy1ParticipantOctober 25, 2020 at 12:12 pmPost count: 1928
Yeha I agree, very versatile attack but the thing is that Fowler rarely has an off day or game where she shouldn’t be the preferred option. Hopefully this move is with the idea that Fowler could’ve leaving soon so Stacey will be looking to give Glasgow some solid game time so she might be the future for the clubIan HarkinModeratorJanuary 29, 2021 at 9:23 pmPost count: 10437Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 4, 2021 at 12:16 pmPost count: 10437TBParticipantFebruary 4, 2021 at 1:00 pmPost count: 429
I don’t understand how anyone can suggest benching Fowler for Glasgow? 🤦♂️
You would never bench one of the most dominant shooters in the game. Oh wait…..sorry only if you’re Julie Fitz 🙄😂Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 4, 2021 at 1:26 pmPost count: 10437Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 5, 2021 at 10:45 amPost count: 10437Ian HarkinModeratorFebruary 6, 2021 at 7:45 amPost count: 10437

Hmmmmmmm, Sue Gaudion is a great commentator and I appreciate her insights but is retaining her as a commentator a bit odd now that she is the Club’s General manager. Some extent of affiliation with clubs is fine but am I wrong to think it’s a bit odd to have a general manager commentating?
