I think people are panicking because of how this season went. They didn’t really have a solid, in form WA (Kara was injured and Kolose wasn’t up to scratch) and it did affect them. Personally I think that the balance of the team is completely off but only time will tell how they’ll perform.greenasgxldParticipantJuly 1, 2021 at 7:21 pmPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantJune 28, 2021 at 2:57 amPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantApril 17, 2021 at 4:03 amPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantApril 16, 2021 at 3:32 amPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantApril 14, 2021 at 4:39 pmPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantNovember 17, 2020 at 1:35 pmPost count: 52
I have to disagree with you, the ANZP is a professional league and they prioritised young talent over imports (ofc they have restricted imports, but there’s only 2 in the whole league). Now both of their clubs and national teams have depth and talent that will sustain them for a while.
SSN teams and NA in general need to do more to develop young players and prioritise AUS players over imports. The ANL has been replaced so their development will be affected again. I just feel like some of the teams go after imports as a first option rather than a last resort. Some of the imports in the league should’ve been Australian players imho. If TBirds were going to drop Shimmin then at least bring in an experienced import. Wilson could be a great player in a few years time but she still needs to grow and that spot could’ve gone to a home player.greenasgxldParticipantNovember 17, 2020 at 8:25 amPost count: 52
Thunderbirds have signed Latanya Wilson.
I thought they would’ve gone for local SA talent but hoorah to another import🙄. After the 2021 season, SSN need to start limiting the imports. Having international talent is good and it helps the development of other countries, but the purpose of this league is not to develop other national teams.
Too many imports are hurting the Diamonds and until they introduce a limit, I don’t see them winning another gold medal.greenasgxldParticipantNovember 17, 2020 at 8:20 amPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantNovember 14, 2020 at 3:19 pmPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantNovember 14, 2020 at 12:38 amPost count: 52greenasgxldParticipantNovember 13, 2020 at 2:20 pmPost count: 52
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t really expect that.
The signing of Stanton just screams ‘tried to sign a better shooter and failed’ (perhaps one of the Lightning shooters or Glasgow?) just because of how late Fever announced that they were dropping her.
It’s a smart move for her though, she’ll have the chance to rejuvenate her game and gain her confidence. However after looking on Insta and Twitter, I feel sorry for her. Some of the comments are terrible and no one should have to read that.
I haven’t heard much about Barkmeyer but at least they’ve got one VIC shooter.
As for McDonald, they could still sign her as a WA/GA slide. She’s more of a feeding GA and could slot into WA quite nicely. Tbh they don’t really need Smith yet as they have Eddy, Weston and Moloney who can cover WD.
