Does Adelaide have the biggest "angry man" factor?

Was watching a bit of the first half and saw McVeigh get extremely pumped up after making a layup. Started yelling, seemingly at himself first to fire himself up, but then carried on to yelling in the Hawks faces (particularly Blanchfield).

Then a few plays later, Drmic got "tangled up" with Andersen whilst turning to run up the court and went face-to-face with him (running into him could easily have been avoided, but he wanted the contact).

It got me thinking: Does Adelaide have the biggest "d1ckhead" factor in the league?

A majority of this forum won't hear a bad word said about Adelaide or one of their players.

As for McVeigh he is nothing compared to Blanchfield.

McVeigh and Drimic seem like psychos, Sobey is a flog, Wiley can get very pumped up (he isn't on psycho or flog level though imo), Joey can seem pretty crazy too.

I don't think many other teams can top that.

Drmic is the biggest flog IMO.
Wright and Sobey are honorable mentions.

Yes it's true and I think it's Joey's influence. I shook my head when Wiley was carrying on like a pork chop after scoring early in the game, we were down by 10 points and the McVeigh thing was embarrassing.

Didn't see the Drmic 'incident' but there are always 1 or 2 of those a game from him.

Adelaide players play heart on their sleeves.

On the one hand it helps them really fire up.

On the other hand they can implode and look like absolute wankers.

Drimic has always thought he was a lot better than his talent, talk to anyone at Dandenong seabl team last season. McVeigh said when signed by Adelaide that it was his stepping stone to the nba, might say enough in its self.

"As for McVeigh he is nothing compared to Blanchfield."

Do you mean as a player, or as an angry man?

Not sure what the hell McVeigh was getting pumped for. Wiley seems to do that after almost most of his plays, especially on a dunk, nothing negative just a pump up thing. Now Drimic is an instigator and Harry does look like he has the angry pills a bit as well.

I think Wiley gets pumped up because he's genuinely excited about a play and is trying to rev himself, the team and fans up. It seems to be a positive action. It looked like McVeigh initially started in this way then by the end he was clearly trying to wind Blanchfield up by screaming in his face.

Cant believe McVeigh didn't get a tech. I think the refs were WTF like everyone else.

McVeigh was pumped because it's the first decent play his made all year. Imagine waiting 10 games before you did something worthy of a highlight. Granted Joey only gives him a couple minutes each game so he doesn’t get much opportunity to create one. All that pent up excitement exploded over a made layup he failed to convert into a three point play!

A made layup deserves nothing, he should have flushed it.

McVeigh talks a lot of shit on court and on Twitter for someone who has scored 4 points total in his career.

Adelaide are hot heads.
They always seem to be looking for a fight. They don't set a very good example to the kids who are watching and supposedly looking up to them.
I would be embarrassed if they were my team.
Definitely the most hated team in the NBL because of this.

Yes this us vs them mentality.

Nobody has mentioned Majok Deng, I'm not saying he is a flog or dirty or psycho but when there is a confrontation, he always seems to be the first to rush the opposition player, he doesn't do anything but he is always there (even when he isn't on the court).

I think the true indicator may be if we see how much of New York comes out in Conger, he seemed pretty level headed last season.

Yes Adelaide just seem to have players that you want to see get dropped... sadly Conklin doesn't throw his elbows around like he used to

On the other hand, post-game rev ups give the highlights packages some material.

Captain of the team is Drimic. He was MIA with the Rangers last season "Attitude".
