Past player treatment on opening night + Sobey v Joey
Slow news Wednesday, so thought I'd share some random info.
Dad just emailed me the below re: opening night at the Ent Center versus Brisbane:
"(Dad's partner) had an interesting chat to Peter Ali about the Adelaide game at the Entertainment Centre versus Brisbane.
A number of past players were invited to the game. Prior to the game, the 12 invitees were asked to stand near the players entrance. The 4 players whose singlets are retired walked on the court, first with no lighting on them, then walked off. The other 8 stood there. No one said anything, so they eventually went back to their seats without even going on the court.
The owner was sitting not far from the players. They discussed walking over and introducing themselves to him but chose not to. He made no move to speak to them.
The gossip on Sobey was that the relationship with Joey Wright deteriorated after Joey Wright hit him."
Not a good look with the past players at all. Another reason for me to dislike this administration (beyond Creekgate).
First I've heard that Joey hit Sobey? Obviously an unqualified rumour at this point. I knew Sobey wasn't reacting well to the in your face yelling (where DJ nochalantly ignores it).
Have at it.
