    Gordy’s Gasbags are always great fun to watch. In between multitasking, I am watching the Silver Ferns vs England 2019 Netball World Cup Semi-Final.

    Mcleod and Maryann raised excellent points: Brigit Hearn steered Netball Mainland to the iceberg at full speed. She jumped off the sinking ship last year. Aside from the Tactix, the people involved in community netball deserved better than what Hearn dished out. Before the netball zoning restructures, the Tactix went through a laundry cycle worth of CEOs.

    They may not have sold out every home game, but the Flames attracted better crowd attendances than the Tactix. Adjusting for inflation, It was cheaper to buy tickets to Flame home games. The Flames played a lot fewer home games than the Tactix. Unfortunately, the Flames crossed the bridge into the Tactix Chernobyl zone too long ago.

    Perhaps the Stars are better placed than the Mystics to weather the storm. The Stars resemble the Steel, they are community-focused and attract good crowds at a modest size venue.

    Tactixsupporter, short of winning the ANP, the Tactix haven’t received the credit they deserve for their turnout. Perhaps, a four thousand seat indoor multiple purpose stadium in the Christchurch CBD is in order for one of the governments post-pandemic infrastructure projects.

    Just thinking about the Tactix’s costs for hosting home games at the Horncastle Arena makes me shudder.

    Marianne Delaney-Hoshek has my respect for turning a team of rabble into a team with rising stars. One might say, the current Tactix player group and coaches is the solution, not the problems with their past woes. (To borrow from Ronald Reagan).

    Maryann, One of the problem the Tactix have contended with is the lack of suitable venues in Christchurch. The Horncastle Arena’s seating arrangement is too large for the team’s home games.

    Netball at the elite level and other Kiwi sporting competitions funded by Sky is in deep trouble. In due time, I expect sporting bodies in Australia and New Zealand to seek bailouts from their respective governments.

    If Radio Sport is resurrected, who knows? Excluding colour commentators, they may no re-hire Delvin and others to save money.

    Mcleod, you raised an excellent question. The outcome may depend upon the financial health of the SSN teams in question.

    Radio Sport may return from the ashes, but first sports leagues have to resume in NZ and worldwide. In what form the ANZ Premiership and Beko League return is another can of worms.

    Lisa’s replacement in the head Diamonds coaching role will face issues as her predecessor. The SSN’s free for all import rule is key to the competition’s rise. However, the best netball competition in the world isn’t synonymous with producing future Diamond players.

    I welcome the axing of the Super Sunday concept. I am curious as to why the Super Sunday concept was axed. Did NNZ drive the change based on feed back from ANZP fans?
