Brutal, will need a long apology letter for this.

I'm thinking whoever threw a plate of food at a Hawks supporter needs to be banned for a very long time if not life just like the man at the Hawks game last year that poured beer on Thorton from the Kings.I hear it could of been Randles wife which would be good if she copped a ban.Low act whoever did this.

No he's not.

Wright was particularly riled at the decision to throw Anthony Drmic out of the game midway through the third quarter, after the aggressive Sixers reserve received two technical fouls, both for flopping.

Wright insisted Drmic went to ground legitimately both times due to contact while shooting

So, Joey came out and apologised for being a flogger,
admitted that yesterday's choke was entirely his fault and that he deserved to be sacked,
and announced his plans to leave Australia and never come back?

Because with the exception of a few deluded Adelaide die-hards, and miscellanea Perf-haters,

that is what everyone has been saying.

No team gets more protection from the refs than his. They did everything they could to help last night, bar actually scoring for Adelaide.
And his chokers couldn't even shoot the free-throws.

Yet anytime something doesn't go his way, he carries on like a pork-chop. He's an embarrassment to the league, and its time Adelaide sacked him. This was their golden opportunity for a ring, and Joey blew it.

Maybe get somebody that can actually coach both ways, employ some actual tactics in finals, and can get his team to focus when the season is on the line.

Losing Drmic was nowhere near as big a deal as losing Ogilvy, but the huge difference was how the two teams responded.
Bevo kept his players focussed, adapted to the loss, and they stepped up.
Joey was clearly too busy drafting his media-release and allowed his players to get distracted.

More importantly, the second technical was for dissent after trying to take a charge.

Complaining after 39 free throws. Awkward.

I want to know what Joey thinks about Randles wife throwing a plate of chips with sauce over a mother and kid and the abuse she was yelling at the Hawks supporters.It was that bad some classy Adelaide supporters said sorry to them for what they copped.Stay tuned i'm sure this won't be swept under the carpet.

Right at this moment everyone's thinking Adelaide were well beaten on their home floor despite getting the better of the reffing.

There is a time and place for comment on the refs, which are a concern and have been for a long time, but I think the way he's gone about it after the series loss is poor and out of character.

Refs didn't cost Sixers the game, but he's 100% right as far as the season overall is concerned.

Take some responsibility Joey ...missed free throws, failure to adjust to the Hawks zone and lack of discipline off the court cost them way, way more than refs calls which certainly went both ways.

Sour grapes....Suck it Joey

At least know why your own player received his second technical foul!

39 free throws and refs fault we lost, not even Gleeson the biggest flog to ever grace the game (according to those here) has come out and said it like that when actually on the receiving end of a plus 14 ft differential.

I thought Joey had a better right hook, looks like that's possible weak too cause he failed to land this blow.

As above neither the time nor place to point out the referees deficiencies.

The issue is refs have been terrible all year,but he wasn't whinging in round 7 or 12. After the loss he looks like a pretty sore loser!
Along with the halfwits in the crowd booing the Hawks off at halftime shows why this was such a popular loss.

Koberulz - Where did Joey say that Drimc got two techs for flopping? There is no direct quote attributed to Joey saying such a thing. A reporter has written that Drimc got two techs for flopping, which is clearly an error on the reporter's part.

Podge, for the good of mankind, we must start disagreeing more.

It's a long story, but the Fieldel-Podge family rivalry has been raging for generations. It'd kinda throw out the balance of the universe if their weak descendants (us) started sharing opinion and getting along. So for the love of humanity Podge, GET STUFFED.

Anon, nothing would surprise me with johnno here.

Btown "Complaining after 39 free throws. Awkward."

J "39 free throws and refs fault we lost"

zzzzzz when people come on here and act like the difference in foul shooting count (or total fouls) shows the refereeing was in favour of Adelaide with no context, proves they are unintelligent basketball fans.

1. Hawks shot 13 more 3's than Adelaide
2. Hawks continued to shoot more long 2's than Adelaide.
3. How many of the foul shots were because Hawks were over the limit?
4. Adelaide I imagine went to the line more than any other team this season because it is their philosophy to attack the ring.
5. Adelaide I imagine were fouled more than any other team this season.

It isn't some magical fairy game where the foul shooting count should be even.

If you feel there was inconsistencies in the calls which gave Adelaide shots but Hawks didn't get the same calls then point them out instead of making a stupid generalisation which doesn't reflect the game or the season.

This would've held a lot more water as a statement after a win. No matter if he is right or wrong it just comes across as sour grapes. I love the 6ers but will be happy when they eventually move on from this guy, he has way to much to say and draws frantic attention all the time. Just wish he would coach and try and win on the playoffs not just make them.

Brunson did you watch the game?

Did the Refs cost the 36ers the game?

There you go - STFU Joey

"when people come on here and act like the difference in foul shooting count (or total fouls) shows the refereeing was in favour of Adelaide with no context, proves they are unintelligent basketball fans."
Incorrect.
Nobody is saying it should be even.
However if you watched the game you would know that Adelaide were gifted a lot of very cheap fouls.
"Attacking the basket" and deviating sideways to initiate contact does not automatically guarantee you a call, unless you are Adelaide.
Clearly somebody at Adelaide has studied the refs carefully and coached their players accordingly.
It's certainly not illegal but neither is it in the spirit of the game.
What's funny is that it was this constant playing for fouls that probably led to Drmic's first technical. He gets touched after shooting and immediately flops to the floor.

And it comes back to this, that had Adelaide not choked at the stripe they would have won

No sister - ohhh God don't tell me who in his family it must have been with then.

back to the topic:

Joeys right about the whole season and the reffing, but the refs had no insurmountable effect upon the 36ers / hawks series.

Hawks won , they were better in 2 out of the three games, and owned the minor series as well.

While Joey may not have had as many veterans to listen to him, making his task on game night more difficult than Bevo's, the fact is they both had a full season to learn how to tweak/lead/coach/adjust their respective teams, and Bevo did it better in this series.

Ho[pe they do well in the GF series

1:31 to go in the game, ball comes off Clarke and is given to Hawks. No review despite requests and contention. Adelaide needed that possession to have a chance.

So yep, I can see why they are pissed off.

In the final 90 seconds of SF game 3 a time out was called. Beveridge quietly organised plays and defensive changes and urged discipline and effort.
Up the other end Wright was not covering any of the above. He simply directed his men to "play by your Gutz" & offered the same direction once again as the 36ers headed back on to the court.

Most NBL coaches don't actually say anything constructive especially down the stretch in a tight game, other than trying to rev up the troops by screaming. What Beveridge did is what Goorjian always has - provide constructive advice no matter what the situation.
