    Why are foxtel unable to get the scoring and timing right? It's embarrassing.

    Scoring lags, shot clock out of sync, then the whole image disappears for minutes at a time.

    It's incredibly basic and they continue to stuff it up. Went on all year and they haven't sorted it in the off-season.

    Couldn't agree more, has been completely amateurish.

    Damien Martin was brilliant in the first. His pressure completely rattled the Bullets.

    Johnson will struggle in the NBL.

    Is it Fox Sports or the NBL themselves supplying that score bug?

    Last season Fox Sports had the minimalist style they use for all of their sports.

    This season's looks ghastly and nothing like anything Fox Sports does. It's like the NBL have let channel 10 do the score bug (and we all know how horrible and out of synch there's was).

    Also, I note that the camera guys are wearing NBL, and not Fox Sports, bibs.

    The whole use the stadium clock on the score bug thing is so 1990's, but given the last 60 seconds isn't going to the 10th second, and the shot clock is show :xx, I reckon they've made a fake 'look like a stadium clock' which has backfired spectacularly.

    Also, why are Brisbane wearing their away strip?

    They have a "Wellness Round" (Chemist Warehouse Round) logo on it and they play away on Saturday Night, so my guess would be they didn't want to print 2 jerseys for a single round.

    Not sure, but the visual isn't the problem - when they had the different style last year the problem still existed.

    Tbf, it's been better in the second half.

    On another point, this is absolutely shit house from Perth. 25 points in the second half is dead set amateur. Pathetic.

    How did Brisbane win that? Their first quarter was probably the worst display I've seen in professional basketball, had to turn it off it was frustrating me how bad it was.

    New uniforms generally look good

    Didn't really like the nz coverage last year, and don't really like it this year

    Be interesting to see how Sydney plays since many are thinking gaze won't be doing the majority of the coaching. Ala hird and Thompson situation.

    What a block from Mitchell. No one could score in the last few minutes of the quarter.

    They should never be allowed to commentate on anything involving their own teams, way too biased! It's Bruce and Cyril and swan just with a hoop and round ball

    New Zealand's jersey doesn't look too bad with that tribal tattoo thing on one top quarter

    Looks like the NBL is still having score bug issues.

    But compared to the quality of the officiating in Wollongong I think the score bug is the least of their problems at the moment.

    Oh and who is that number 3 for the 36ers and what's he done with Jerome Randle.

    Joey rightfully giving it to the refs. I reckon I could ref better than the three idiots in Wollongong tonight.

    Joey's words of wisdom paying off - the refs called a flop!

    Now I wonder if they'll ever start calling them on Goulding...

    Oh for sure. I'm just stunned the flop tech they called was actually correct!

    And now they're second guessing whether to keep handing out techs!

    Any chance of any defense in this game?

    89 points in 14 minutes is ludicrous for a professional game.
