On CJ Massingale's Release:

So I'm just lamenting the sixer's OT loss to Perth this arvo and I come across this article on CJ Massingale's release from the sixer's. What can I say I felt compelled to leave a comment in that post.

If what this guy has had to say is true then this is some crazy $hit. I'm not talking about the termination of his contract but just the general disrespect shown.

What's even more crazy is that the sixer's org couldn't even buy a damn plane ticket to ship this guy out to the A. Not even a damn economy seat on a Jetstar or Tiger airways flight. Crazy stuff.

I've read some of the stuff from you guys in here that know more about the intricacies of this league than I do but damn I never thought this stuff was true. I've heard of the sixer's stinginess with some of their junior players not even being given a stipend and what not but damn the stuff this guy Massingale had to say in that piece was on another level.

Now I'm starting to see why threads calling for Marty Clarke's head pop up like clockwork on this and other similar forums.


What do you guys think about how this guy was axed? I think he was disrespected.

Adelaide roster is deep so hence his lack of minutes but please, this guy can play in the league if given some shine. Look at what he did against Perth in 18 minutes of court time.

But that's not really the point. The way this guy was handled is crazy. I've been a sixer's fan for a long time but I just can't support these coaches right now.

I remember when Dusty Rychart was axed by Nth Melb & Phil Smyth recruited him in which he became a star. The same has happened with Redhage. CJ will get another shot & it will be the final straw for Clarke as a bad decision maker. Not that he needs any more egg on his face....
