    new collective bargaining agreement is a necessary evil to ensure the sport can
    compete in an increasingly crowded womens market.A new eight-team Australian
    netball competition will launch next year and while clubs can approach and
    negotiate with players, signings cant be announced until the CBA is finalised.It
    was initially hoped the agreement would be ratified shortly after the
    trans-Tasman grand final.However talks between the clubs and the Australian
    Netball Players Association (ANPA) are ongoing nearly three weeks later.I
    wouldnt say its frustrating. Its one of the most critical pieces in the puzzle,
    Palmer said on Wednesday.We can have all sorts of other agreements in place but
    unless we get the athletes piece right, they wont be happy and we wont be
    happy.They make the league, we need them to be well-supported. Its an
    opportunity to get it right.Palmer said she was confident the CBA would be
    finished very, very soon but would not give a definitive date.AAP understands it
    may take another two weeks.Palmer said Netball Australia and the ANPA were
    united in their desire to see Australian netballers become full-time
    professionals - if not immediately, then at some point soon.We both want that
    but were a little way off, she said.Wed love to be able to pay them full-time,
    wed love them to earn what an AFL player earns and thats a dream well reach one
    day.If were going to be competitive in womens sport thats something we need to
    offer.Its how you get the start right and theres a lot of people at the table
    trying to make that work.Noeline Taurua, the inaugural coach of new franchise
    Sunshine Coast Lightning, said the wait wasnt hampering her recruitment
    efforts.It is what it is. The good thing is everyones in the same boat, she

    currently houses Chad Mendes, Cody Garbrandt and Paige VanZant, among others. A
    former collegiate wrestler, Faber made his professional fighting debut in 2003

    classes.Ive been teetering with [retirement] for a long time, said Faber during
    an appearance on The MMA Hour. The thing that Im lucky [about], I have my health
    and I really love what Im doing, but just as far as the passion goes -- I have
    passion for what Im doing still, but it doesnt get the same emotion that it has

    decision loss to Cruz at UFC 132 in a fight he since has said he thought he won.
    He also took a TKO loss against Renan Barao in 2014, even though he was showing
    a thumbs-up to referee Herb Dean at the time the bout was called.In 2012, Faber
    coached a season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series.Faber will face a fellow
    veteran in Pickett (25-12), who also fought in the WEC prior to joining the UFC.
