    please don't call Dixon a turkish player.

    at least Galatasaray plays some minutes with turkish players, 37% to be precise

    edit: at the end Fener played turks for 22 minutes (11%) and Galatasaray 90 minutes (45%)

    I watched Banvit-Tofas match yesterday, a game between two clubs which are known to invest in youth bball... and most of the game was played 5 vs 5 only between foreigners. :/

    Doesn't it feel a bit stupid watching this? Some dudes come, have fun between themselves and we pay tons of money for them... and then they leave... or switch clubs and keep the same routine... in the end we end up with a circus league below top 6-8 teams, and we cannot field 5 decent players for the NT.

    I personally cannot think of a good solution for the puzzling situation of Turkish players... the answer might be either no foreigner quota at all, or a strict one with maybe a max of 2 or 3. The way it is now, i.e. 7 players, is probably the worst. 6-7 is a number that ensures at least 5-6 Turkish players per team finds contracts and actually none has to play.

    lame excuse.
    so it is better to give 1 000 000 euro for a questionable serbian talent then to give that amount for some of the top turskih talent?
    or are there no turkish talents?
    it must be that. at least for Obradović and fenerbahce managament.

    if my team was a low level europe team too I would agree with you.

    kidding aside, Fenerbahçe is not a place to grow up.. that questinable serbian talent go all over Real Madrid last year and send Fener to Berlin while Turkish players sucks even in easy level TBL games.

    I think TBL is turning into a joke. What the hell is this?

    Can someone give me some answers about;

    1- Why Semih Erden is sidelined? I think without him dacka is really weak. He is not injured right?
    2- Why Kenan Spank is not playing after the injury? He started the season really good. Now he doesn't play at all
    3- Why are we letting Ted in the league. They play 40 minute of foreigners to lost by at least +10 every game.
    4- Is Tolga Gecim injured?
    5- what do you think of Perasovic? I dislike him because despite who plays good at the end of the game he always go to Heurtel, Brown or Custom which costs him games in the end

    This in not about basketball, but Turkeys general problem.
    There are also 5 teams in football league from Istanbul, and 23% of the population of Turkey lives in Istanbul...

    Tofaş brings Chris Copeland. I thought their spirit formed by the Turks as Ene said. Tofaş and Ene, You are the biggest hypocrite in this league. And your hypocrisy getting bigger every single week.

    and that is after addition of Crocker... the difference between having 2 more foreigners vs initial squad is probably being 10th vs 12th in the league for them... would they get relegated with available local talent? I don't think so, not with a proper coach at least.

    in other news TED signed their 5th foreigner. so their 10 local players do not have to fight for the last 40min spot any more, it's also gone: 5 foreigners x 40mins. and certain relegation. Genius of club management.

    why Karsiyaka had only 9 players in roster today against Efes?
