For the first time ever in an ABL season, perhaps influenced by our postings on this blog, the Singapore Slingers’ Management have replaced Donald Little with crowd favourite Kyle Jeffers for the rest of the ABL Season. This is not the first time that Donald Little had been replaced by another import in the ABL season, having been in the same position when he was at Patriots.
At the beginning of the season, a fan had queried the Slingers’ Management in a Facebook Chat on the possibility of Slingers changing their imports should the going gets tough. The General Manager, Mr Michael Johnson, was of the opinion that “players are not commodity that could be replaced at will”. However, after enduring 6 straight losses, perhaps the Slingers Management are convinced that a change in imports would be beneficial.
While the official reason is that Donald Little is injured, we believe that a player with good camaraderie with the entire team would bodes better teamwork and team play for the Slingers.
We hope that this change would augur well for the Slingers, and hopefully turns out to be a masterstroke in the Slingers ailing campaign thus far.
Fans, this also shows that the team is listening to you and if you have any issues or want to raise up any points, please look for us at Facebook, “Slingers Nation” to raise your concern.
