Righto.

I don't fully agree test plsyers slotting straight into their BBL team for finals with zero H&A games..

Meh, it's a Mickey Mouse tip and run game for shits and giggles. Who really gives a toss, get the best ones playing

When you do, you don't get 100 run whitewashes in the Granny which is shit for everyone spectating

Plus, you get more bums on seats with the great players playing

How many home and away games did Lyon play?

Zero, but let's not mention him

Again, I actively want the best playing at all times in T20

Lyon signed a contract before the season with the Sixers. Similarly Head and Carey did for the Strikers, Lab for the Heat. Smith didn’t.

It's not hard to make an exemption for the Grand Final, when the whole Sixer squad was being held together by the tape that held Bruce Reid together in the 12th Man albums

Feels like forever since our last title, I was there at the WACA, I watched Johnson dominate with the ball and Klinger put on a master class with the bat as we chased 160ish with ease, losing only one wicket in the process. Tonight a fourth title, we in the west are truly lucky.

CA asked the other seven teams in the BBL if it was okay for the Sixers to add Smith to their list and every team said no.

At the end of the day he didnt have a contract, sucks for them but those are the rules.

Where do you draw the line…you giving the Thunder Cummins? Can’t just be for the GF. It distorts the competition

You use discretion. You make a case for the player to play
That’d just make the comp more of a joke if discretion is used rather than following the rules. The facts are, everyone else signed contracts, Smith didn’t.. and everyone other club was asked whether it was okay and they said no, there was democracy involved to get to this point. So there’s no reason why he should have played with that evidence.

Would it have made the game better? Of course. But if we’re doing that and disregarding everything else to make one game competitive then we may as well have Michael Masi run the comp

What if 11 mainline Strikers get injured leading up to the final.

Do you want 11 Evan Dando's playing? Just let the best play FFS

If that’s what happens then yes. That’s sport. Sometimes the players you signed to your squad before the season aren’t available through injury or whatever. As a West Coast fan surely you relate to that after last year, you just can’t do anything about it and it’s rough looking at what could have been

What we want is the teams that make it to the finals buying players for one game so they have the best players in the side possible... sarcasm. It would ruin the finals buying the test players unsigned

Contract a player and spend your salary cap just in case.

That’s opening a can of worms. You either don’t have contracts or you abide by the current rules can’t have a bet both ways

Ok, well why didn't one of the best players in the world have a contract, but Evan Dando (the worst player in the BBL) and an assistant coach did?

That makes no sense

Because they didn't want to pay Smith a retainer to watch them play all year

So many people cry 'omg!! not even a contest' but they won't even entertain having the best players playing

You can't have it both ways, fam
