I think the reply you got was that the issue was being addressed in another thread. There was lots of dicussion there over a 2 year period up and until the end of Nationals this past year.
I think lots of people are willing to have the conversation. In most cases though what most people see as having a conversation is simply sharing what they see as wrong. Identifying what is wrong is the easy part. You don't even have to agree that it is wrong to identify as a potential fault. Its coming to agreeement on what we want, how to get there and what each stakeholders role needs to be that is the difficult part.
I'll happily contribute thoughts here on back on the other thread.
To avoid re-hading issues already discussed though, I will simply state that BNB had modified their elite development programs and packages this year to make them more central to NB needs while maintaining elements of the curriculum Canada Basketball is endorsing. That being said until, as a basketball community, the priority becomes "basketball" and "basketball players" rather then me, my team, my town, my program for parents, coaches, officials and players we will have issues. We have a passionate basketball community in this province, we just need to do a better job communicating and working together to common goals. There can't be this divide between what is best for us vs what is best for them. If it makes better basketball and better basketball players then we have to see that as good for everyone.
