Starting to take an interest and watch more highlights.

Herald sun made it out like the kings were not going to lose a game in their season preview.

The refs are having an interesting match in the Ill vs Adelaide contest.

Lots of interesting tech fouls coming.

Including a tech for Sobey for attempting to kick Andersen

Have stopped watching NBL, refs affecting too many matches with bad decisions
They are deliberately making games close, it’s why they can boast about all the close games as I’ve noticed as a team starts to get on top, the refs suddenly go completely against them.

Andersen only getting a normal foul for his hit on Sobey exhibit A there.

The lack of integrity in the NBL comp is ultimately going to kill the comp. Yeah, they're getting great crowds and exposure now, but it's only going to take a couple of whistleblowers, or a good 4 Corners investigation, and the reputation hit from that will cause irreparable damage to the league.

Anderson’s foul was upgraded to a Unsportsmanlike on review with a Tech on top which was the reason he got tossed, so think they got it spot on.

I dare say this Cats team is the deepest since the Dragons of 08 or 09 when they won the title

Amazing comeback tonight with the closer on the sidelines

NBL admits the refs botched the Wiley tossing yesterday.

As usual the refs will probably escape sanction for their (mis)conduct yesterday.

As a life long Wildcats supporter it couldn't have happened to a nicer team at a better time of the game.

As an old school basketball fan it was pretty much the "low-light" in a weekend of soft calls and even softer refs calling over the top techs.
Worst part is they are taking away from otherwise high quality games.
