Damian Martin's Crazy Night

-Hits a 3 to send the game to OT and help Wildcats regain top spot on the ladder.

-Recieves death threats from a punter who had $20k on Syndey.

-Driving home from picking up his dinner sees a house on fire. Enters and saves an old man and his dog who were upstairs, climbs on the roof and attempts to put out the fire with a hose, goes back in to retrieve some valuables for the owner. House was completely destroyed in the fire.

Yeah, but imagine what a third import could have done...

That is truly shocking.

How can an athlete be eating Fish and Chips?

The death threat came from LV.

HE only focuses on one thing, ignores all other factors then doubles down when challenged.

This confirms Damo is as much of a good bloke as we all knew

Get it right Lovebroker, if I was going to send anyone a death threat it'd be the coach!

(jokes, jokes.....!)

True, if anyone were deserving of such a piece of emotive correspondence, it's the Sydney Coach.

Was going to start my own thread, but this tops anything I was going to say.

After Damo's performance, I was pondering the question:

Who is your favourite player for LIFTING (and lifting his team) in CRUNCH time? When an important game is on the line?

From last night's game, have to give major props to Randle. He was stuffed, he was on one leg, and he was still trying to carry his team home.

And obviously Cotton went off in the last quarter and OT, but for mine its still Damo.

Did the burning house belong to one of the refs...? Got a bit carried away with the home cooking earlier and set the kitchen on fire?

The death threat from a sports bettor just gets glossed over as a side note.

The sooner the NBL distances itself from sports betting organisations the better.

What an absolute champion player and human being Damo is.

Thoroughly deserves all accolades he gets plus should also receive a brvery award.

Death threat if true the person is a scum bag.

So because of one lunatic, sports betting becomes invalidated?

It isn't just one lunatic though.

I'm not saying ban sports betting either.

It isn't just one lunatic, but anyone who loses the plot over losing a bet is going to find other ways to lose the plot if you take NBL betting away from them.
