    Kim & Neo

    That fact that this discussion is taking place means someone did not do their job correctly. Therefore I do not buy this bullcrap about not judging the ‘new’ committee. From the above it is clear that proper communication did not take place, just as in the Vusi era. Fact is the camp does not seem to have been properly planned, also a cornerstone of the Vusi era.

    I said it before and I will say it again, the National Administrator post is a sham. No thought whatsoever seem to have been exercised into its purpose and function. If this was done properly then surely it would have been obvious that this should have been a Non-political post, properly advertised to ensure that the right canditate is recruited.

    And as I argued before how “new” is the committee, is it new in terms of faces or in terms of values, attiitude and skills?

    I hear you my brother and I agree with some of your sentiments hence I said this should have been done at the Seniors.Seems like the debate of being new and old will never end.My view is that,I will judge on BSA on performance and then at the end of what was supposed to be done,make an assessment if we have improved or not.Whether 1 was there before isnt the issue because maybe a that time they didnt have a say,we dont know the politics that run in associations.

    The biggest mistake authorities can make is try do everything alone.1 person can not work more efficiently than 3 or 4.It is funny though when things dont go according to plan,everyone jumps and makes NOISE but when someone has done something well,we are silent.Its an observation that suprises me alot when it comes to our opinions on BasketballSA.Maybe I am making a big deal out of nothing!
