    All for keeping them the same Ant. We could then possibly look at a Div 1 / 2 with relegation, etc in the coming years.

    Man, not looking good...

    Accusing the players of failing to bargain "in good faith" and of "impermissible pressure tactics" in labor talks, the NBA has filed an unfair labor practice charge and a federal lawsuit against the NBA Players Association.

    The claims were filed Tuesday.

    The unfair labor practice charge was filed with the National Labor Relations Board. It accuses the players of making "unlawful" threats to break up their union and pursue an antitrust lawsuit against the NBA, a strategy used this year by NFL players to fight their lockout.

    The lawsuit was filed in federal district court in New York. It asks the court to declare the NBA lockout does not break antitrust laws. The NBA also says it wants to void existing player contracts if the NBPA sheds its union status.

    hey guys. im assuming this is on the game on espn? id like to play if this season goes ahead.
    I think if the lockout hasn't ended before the season starts it will either go for like 2 weeks into the season or like 5 months. Hopefully its agreed upon soon.

    Yeah, this lock-out bloody SUCKS!
    Would love to participate if it goes ahead but it's looking nlikely, with Patty Mills already come down to Australia to play and a lot of other players talking about playing overseas.

    @blankmc
    yeah it's on ESPN and it was originally planned to have a live draft like previous seasons.

    Well it's looking even more unlikely;
    Green (SPURS) >> Slovenia Team
    Durant (OKC) >> Turkish Team
    Boozer (BULLS) >> Overseas Planning
    Artest (LAKERS?) >> Team in UK
    Rondo (BOST) >> Decision on OCT. 1
    Jackson >> Decision OCT. 1

    Sigh.

    wow, this is looking grim isn't it!

    Would love to get in on it if the bloody lockout unlocks.

    Let's just hope our AFLPA are watching and don't take it this far.

    I got the same email Walesy. I am not sure what is going on unless Anthak has been tinkering around with the league settings?

    :D Nice.

    Perhaps we'll have to set up a scoring system based on how players go in whatever else they decide to do in the interim?

    ie- pick up Kevin Love for the volleyball action.
     
  15. Live interview = +10 points
    Sledging = +20 points
    Comments detrimental to the lock-out situation = -50 points

    Cameo appearance in a movie: 20pt.
    repeat bit part on a sitcom: -10pt per episode.

    Loving these ideas lol

    And you know, as LM, I can manually assign points, so in theory, we could actually do this haha

    ... Just need to hire some researchers to gather the stats.
