I didnt think he was that bad against NZ. Have noticed he has been settling for the jump shot a lot though, is Joey wanting him to take it to the rack more hence why he is sitting him? Or is it defensively where the issue is? You just hope it doesn't shoot his confidence so much that he can’t get back to his top level.

If it was just form surely he'd have got on by now? I'm thinking it's disciplinary.

They just confirmed it isn't due to to injury. I just remembered in the breakers game, Sobey got subbed off late in the game and apparently wasn’t happy about at and said something to Joey at the time as per the commentators. Maybe a coach incurred suspension for this - laying down the Law showing who’s in charge?

Bizarre. If it were disciplinary you'd expect it to be a full quarter/half/game. If form, only a few minutes. If injury, at least the whole half.

Welcome back Stud boy. Still having a go at Wright whenever you can.... zzzzz

We don't know what the instructions have been for the team however based on the fact this is the second time he has been benched it is apparent for not following team orders. The first time benching him was a stroke of genius which trolls like you didn't give him credit for. A very under rated thing about this team is that they have one of the best, if not the best cultures in the league. The lesson is more important than this game.

More to this. You do realise Aylen worked at BSA as Competitions Manager, kept quiet so in the same building, is there history. Sixers has had management changes this last week or too. Multiple injury issues and they fight against teams who have money to burn, no accountability and lets not talk about how frustrating this reffing is for more than half the teams in this PRIVATE LEAGUE. Coaching is intense and when there is issues of not having the money to spend there is a lot going on behind the scenes, pressure on players. Yes Joey is emotional and I am hot and cold with him but thats part of what makes him. Haven't seen many coaches do what he does with small budget local players.

Come on guys don't believe that so many taking that utter disgraceful effort and total disatrous coaching by Joey . Not only has he sucked all the confidence out of this group and has no idea how to use all the talent he has or obtain any sort of defensive pressure.
Then to ask to get tech.fouled and sent off is totally not acceptable to his team the club and all of us that pay most of his wages.
I know the club has given him a long contract but I want to see this ego driven walking disaster gone.
Before jump and say another Joey basher then look back at my posts you will find been sitting on fence re Joey.
But this team player for player is one of best we have had for a long time and those last 3 games have been awful.
Yes I know we beat Cairns but have another look at how bad we payed in that game .
I for one will be contacting club about that disgrace.

Where are all those anonymous losers from last Saturday who were saying Melbourne are rubbish?

Wright should focus on getting his team playing D instead of whinging at the refs.

United on the other hand have played exceptional D over past 2 (except first quarter tonight).

Still, Adelaide will be a different proposition with Sobey back out of the doghouse and Childress fit and firing.

So Lovebroker did you think Joeys behaviour was acceptable then do you.
Did you think his theatrics with selection , team organisation , leadership and then of course not just get a tech foul but demand it and eviction.
Do you think this packed team playing anywhere their ability and how last 3 games just pure effort has created offensive rebounds and loose balls etc from opposition.
Cannot believe any strong supporter of Sixers is not worried and angry with what occurred tonight .

Plenty of season to go yet. Childress will get better.

Hopefully Joey will keep up the fast paced game but try and balance our offense a bit more. He seems to refuse to encourage more shooting from the perimeter and its killing us. Where are the set plays for our treys.

From 3 pt land 6/19. Previous game 5/12. Just not good enough. The constant driving into traffic brought us to 8 blocks tonight and god knows how many misses. We have plenty of talent on the drive but seem to make the hardest possible shots after giving up open three point opportunities.

The weaker our outside game, the easier it is to contract defense knowing we're going to keep driving into trouble, again and again and again.

I believe Joey needs to bring a few more players up to scratch from range which will better open up the drive to the hoop for us.

Nathan Sobey? Not sure making him stand in the corner to humiliate him for whatever he's done is the best way to bring him back to scratch!

Joey Wright? Not sure being deliberately ejected from the game will be an effective protest against the poor umpiring! There must be protocols for complaints and I hope the club follows them up!

C'mon Sixers!

Meh, Joey Wright has been embarrassing the 36ers with his antics for years now. I dont like his style, my gut says he is very fake, knows how to manipulate players, which to some degree is apart of the gig, but is out of his depth when the push comes to shove. My concern is he pissing young Sobey off too much. Sobey is alot more valuable to the team and its fans than Joey Wright ever will be.

Melbourne aren't that great. Joey has travelled the road as a coach of a few teams that were funded by dodgy people.
Now with a team that he has to be accountable for, the said experts as owners with Joey producing limited success have appointed him to a long term stupid arse decision to hire a coach with no real cred to a long term contract. Stupid decision. Followed by the Big guy as well.
Management have got it so wrong for so many years in Adelaide.

You guys are the embarrassment not Wright, if sitting bottom of ladder regularly then have your opinion. And better to set standards re Sobey and show no-one is greater than team even if it results in a few losses.
