Adam Tatalovich to face charges

Sounds like Joey has had an almighty sook at the tribunal & dobbed in the Perth assistant. Unless his comments were racist (surely not), Joey needs to get a massive tissue, admit he carried on like a teenager & cop it on the chin. I've lost respect for this great coach...

The CEO should be up as well for bringing the game into disrepute. Wildcats fans say he was getting on the front foot and it was for PR but it inflamed the situation and was bias and should not of been posted by a CEO. If a CEO of an AFL club posted a negative pic of an opposing player that had been reported thete would be a massive out cry.

Hey Barry,

1) Why exactly should Tat have not been on his own court?
2) He is not the video coach (that was last season; Adam Forde is the video coach now) he is now 2nd assistant coach aka the development coach. How is it surprising then that he is standing with Damian Scott, Louis Timms and Michael Vigor?

Can the NBL hurry up and conclude its investigation already? Its nearly been a week now and its still going on. I can understand if the league want to milk this for as long as possible given the headlines its created, but if this investigation drags into a second week, it will start to lose some credibility and its not fair on either team, who Im sure will want to receive their fines and move on.

Its been great for not only publicity, but to show that the league has some genuine passion, however it also exposes the NBL for being an organisation that can't wrap things up in a timely manner.

By comparison, this happens in the AFL every weekend, and is finalised by Tuesday during the tribunal.

Dunkin' Dan I think you missed a directive here. Coaches can only dob on coaches, GMs on GMs and players on players.

Therefore by not reporting Marvin they avoided Parker being dobbed in.

By dismissing Ennis' charge they avoided him dobbing in Ervin who would then dob in Hire.

The NBL released the following on Wednesday afternoon:



The NBL has issued two new charges stemming from the post-match altercation between the Perth Wildcats and Adelaide 36ers game on Friday night.

Perth Wildcats Assistant Coach Adam Tatalovich has been charged with:

- Bringing the Game Into Disrepute
- Misconduct

These charges relate to alleged physical contact and abusive language directed at Adelaide Coach Joey Wright.

They follow an official complaint lodged with the NBL by the Adelaide 36ers. Additional evidence has emerged to support the charges.

Both charges will be heard later this week. A date and time is yet to be set.
The striking charge against Joey Wright will be heard on Friday afternoon.

Joey should be charged with bringing the game into disrepute. Most likely he's going to get off the striking charge so will therefore have no punishment. Is it really acceptable that no-one (Tat excluded here because as an assistant coach he doesn't really count) is punished after that whole incident and that the league deems that as acceptable behaviour?

Similarly, any sane, rational and non-tribal NBL fan who watches the video of the aftermath of the Wildcats-36ers handshakes can see the initial to-do is being settled and Joey is among the peacemakers when suddenly he flips.

And thus he is charged with striking Tatalovich who, the triballists now wish to claim, was protecting the Wildcat development players from Joey's machinations.

Wow.

Don't forget we still care about our basketball in Perth.
I don't see Wildcats fans rushing to exonerate him either. FWIW I definitely think he is guilty of removing an opposing coach's hands from one of his players and should be punished accordingly.

Nope, most Perth fans including the prominent ones in this thread have said from the start that Ervin instigated the intial conflict, Ennis accelerated it into a physical melee, Joey restarted it twice.

To break it down for the simple anons:

- Ervin said something to Hire
- Ennis overreacted after Gleeson had already moved Hire away from Ervin
- All coaches + Damian Martin managed to seperate the players
- Joey touches a Wildcats development player (who is just standing there) and says "Stay Back"
- Tatalovich overreacts by pushing Joey's hand away and tells him to "f*** off"
- Joey overreacts and push/punches Tatalovich and then pushes Wildcats development players when they move in front of Tatalovich
- Joey is forcibly restrained by BJ Anthony who accidently knocks his glasses off
- Tatalovich continues chatting
- Joey can be heard on the broadcast yelling "that's f****** wrong" over and over again (Despite what Ben Fitz will have you believe according to a recent tweet). He then proceeds to go after Tatalovich again but is blocked by the mass of players.

Why does it matter that the 36ers lodged the formal complaint? They should have, the Cats assistant should definitely be subject to the tribunal, just as Joey Wright is.

Neither club has a moral high ground in this fight, both acted pretty badly and both escalated the fight.

Some of the red & black tinted comments, including "Dean Parker, Ervin and Wright should all be charged with bringing the game in to disrepute too." are ridiculous. Dean Parker? Really? Come on, son.

"Thankfully no one has employed a South Australian because from what I've seen and read in the past few days, they all seem to be a few cans short."

Honestly, don't ruin any credibility you might have saying stuff like that. Really not the most intelligent statement you've come up with.

Pathetic spiteful comments and people believing their club has some imaginary moral high ground is hilarious. Perth's CEO shouldn't have posted ala Dan Gilbertesque, Adelaide's Head Coach shouldn't have gone psycho, Perth's Assistant Coach shouldn't have gone psycho himself, Ervin, Creek and Ennis shouldn't have lost their tempers.... Both clubs acted equally as atrociously.

KET.......THANK YOU for speaking sense. Its about time someone did on this issue.

The way most Wildcats fans have come across about this issue has been a little hard to take. Its almost like they've tried to paint a picture which shows the alter boy `Cats all kneeling in prayer in the centre of the court after the game thanking God (Marvin?) for their existence and their overwhelming basketball ability which would leave the likes of even the Miami Heat chasing their own tails. Meanwhile those dastardly devils from Adelaide led by their coach Joey Wright and GM Dean Parker have gone psycho, killing everyone in sight not wearing a 36ers shirt.

Ok, ok, that is a very big exaggeration of the truth. But my point is that the Wildcats are just as guilty for what we saw after the game last Friday night as the 36ers were.

HoldenV8, you thank KET for making sense, then blame Wildcats fans for their stupidity (have you not seen the number of people questioning Tat's nationality, o anonymous posters making stuff up?) while saying the Cats are just as guilty. They're not. I know what role the Cats played on Friday and have happily admitted who was wrong but the point is, and this has been made REPEATEDLY, is that only one person has been charged with bringing the game into disrepute, and that wasn't the dick who kicked the whole thing off or ran around the court loudly swearing, nor was it the guy who carried on like a complete moron after being touched and sworn at.

I am yet to hear one person give an explanation as to why only one person faces that charge.

KET. my comments about Dean Parker have been facetious responses to people's suggestions that Nick Marvin should be charged as well. Parker was just as active on Twitter on Friday night and the next day and he had his own stupid comments to make, so its not as if took the high road.

Just a minor point.....Tatalovich wouldn't be facing any charges if the NBL didn't agree with the 36ers complaints on some level. Its just pathetic that it took complaints from the 36ers for that to happen. If he was going to be charged he should have been charged when Ennis and Wright were.

My own personal feelings on this whole BS is that the NBL should have handed out a few warnings and possibly a few fines to both teams, then just got on with the season. And it should have been over with by Wednesday. The fact that its a week later and this is still going on is unprofessional from the NBL to say the least.

Agree that in hindsight, a series of modest fines and a general warning to don't be that dumb again to both teams, handed out in the space of the weekend, would have been the way to go about it. After all, despite talk of striking this or provocation done, the whole thing was surely a massive case of no harm done, no need to stress.

Not really, if a club goes to the trouble of lodging an official complaint it would have to be utterly spurious prima facie to not take the matter to a tribunal, and making that call would be politically awkward for them. They would progress through with the charge whether they agree or not, nothing can be derived from the fact charges have been pressed in this instance.

In my experience, there are very few times when the phrase "out of context" is not employed in a weaselly fashion.

It was firmly rooted in the context of a confrontation between Wright and Tatalovich. There's a lot you could say about the little sliver of time presented in the photo, but I don't see how you can claim it was out of context when everyone had access to the footage to compare it against.

The issue I saw with the picture was not the fact that it was posted but that Marvin indicated that it proved the "his" assistant coach didn't start anything.

It didn't prove that; it did prove that Joey wasn't the saint that some SA commentators on twitter were suggesting.

He is the CEO, that is whats wrong. The role of a CEO is not to post a picture of a reported incident on Twitter. #Unprofessional #full stop #move on #amit you are wrong on this one

I've already said that he shouldn't have posted the pic, but I can see why he did it.

Go and check Chris Goulding's twitter from the incident, where he posted "just a coincidence huh?" ie blaming Perth for the entire incident. Have a look who retweeted it. The role of a CEO is not to apportion blame for an incident which he knew nothing about, particularly as he was dead wrong. So thats why Nick posted the pic - because your dickhead CEO blamed the Cats first.

The Situation again. Joey is manning up and will take whats coming..... Read from other sources and you will find he has already said he is disappointed in how he reacted but that doesn't mean he has to shoulder the reaponsibility of the entire incident. Ervin will be equally as disappointed this mall transpired and is right to not
comment.. Joey is quiet because he is back on the job getting his team ready for the coming rounds. Time to let it go. If it happens again then that is an issue. How the NBL and Refs manage it and agro brewing in future games is an issue to be addressed after todays findings are laid. Everyone will learn from this experience and hopefully NBL and clubs will create new policies and agreements to prevent and manage these kind of undesirable events in this great sport we all love. Transfer that anger into support for your team and pray to the basketball gods we have a great end to the season for the good of the sport.

Actually Goulding was blaming Ennis for instigating.

Whatever the case, Parker retweeted it. I'd say he provoked Marvin in to responding.

Yes, just nitpicking before a 36er fan does :)

Oh and Joey retweeted inflammatory comments as well so I really don't think anyone should be getting on a high horse over Marvin's tweet.

Marvin is always professional provided he gets his way.

"Its interesting too that it would appear that no referee reported anyone after the "incident." Would that be a true statement?
If so wither incompentency or they deemed nothing in it. I would have thought the former."
Pretty sure they were down the tunnel already at the time, and having not seen anything couldn't possibly have made any reports.

"He is the CEO, that is whats wrong. The role of a CEO is not to post a picture of a reported incident on Twitter."

So the non-posting of pictures is now the purpose of a CEO, well that just widened the available pool of applicants if we ever need to replace Marvin.

Not running the organisation and managing its public image and fortunes or anything like that. I mean, that would be unprofessional, right?

Right?

I mean he's just like a cop, he has to be impartial about the situ-WAIT JUST A MINUTE YOU TRICKY ANON. That isn't what his role is at all!

Referees are supposed to stay on the court until everyone has left the arena. Generally they run away as soon as the game is concluded to avoid a confrontation after the game has concluded, usually based on their poor efforts. This is another example of where they keep on failing that Cooper fails to address.

The refs at Perth usually leave straight away to a standing ovation from the crowd...

Yay, that means we can continue to analyse for days to come! /sarcasm

Seriously though now the cases will be heard over a week after the intial incident and both clubs will have played another game or games.

Now THAT is unprofessional!

Can't believe the NBL hasn't settled the matter yet. Amateurs.

Yep. Its a joke alright.

Thought the "fight" was great for the league when it happened. The buzz around the league in mainstream news was as high as its ever been.

But now I'm really over it - and Im sure every one else is too. Its now making the league look amateur that they haven't sorted it out by now.
