media protecting their sources as player managers is where they get the majority of their info from.
I’m looking for an article I read about Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s trade to the Lakers. It’s a good lesson to administrators, players and agents. A super dooper star, a glamour team, possibly the biggest trade in sports history, and it wasn’t publicly reported until it was finalised. No whispers or shenanigans
Stability mate. It’s all about stability
Fix up the front of house and plenty of coaches look good. Continue to bumble along and only an exceptional coach will look good.
I don't think you can really compare 1975 with today. No internet back then and the media didn't have anywhere near the access or coverage it has today. Also the public didn't have such an insatiable appetite for news or inside info as we do now. Player agents weren't as powerful and there would have been less people involved to make these deals happen which all leads to a much easier 'keeping the trade secret'
Part of me hopes that we sign both of them so that I can see your reaction when we cop our first flogging under their leadership.
Edit, pointless debating with fools
This is true but my point was it’s a lesson on ethical behaviour that can still be utilised today. And there was still enough media around that would affect the people involved. It was agreed between Kareem, Bucks and later Lakers that if it so much as hit the headlines, the deal was off
Yeah @Gary Gutful is pretty foolish
That's all just a ruse to protect him from being hurt again...
I can’t wait either, it will be very exciting.
Because the flogging would happen. You realise that don't you?
I am a foolish mediocrity accepting fool.
It’s official. BA extended.
Full article in the “when do we call time” thread.
Cue further meltdowns...
Nah if we change coaches we will never lose a game again.
Can you see us ever winning a comp with Brad Arthur in charge?? Simple yes or no answer will suffice. And if it is no why should we continue down this road for two further seasons??
It’s offical, we are the laughing stock of the League once more.
I notice that neither of them guaranteed us even one premiership. A bit disappointing.
What now Gutho ?
At least Sharpie offered us two or three.
