"The relaunched NBL is set to go ahead later this year without a team in Sydney or Brisbane."
Taken from this article.
So that's no Sydney, Brisbane, Wollongong, maybe no Adelaide and Cairns and most certainly no Nunawading Spectres. At this rate the 2009/10 NewNBL season could be the Melbourne TigerTitans vs Perth WildCrocs playing a winner-take-all, one-game showdown. I anxiously await to hear what JR has to say about the outlook of the NewNBL.
(Oh and the pic above is my visual to represent failure, it bookends well with the track below.)
