What a farce !!! The Crows reserves

Post by firstblood on Mon Jun 13, 2016 11:13 am

first of all when we arrived at Norwood for the West v Norwood reserves game, Volunteers were shown an email received from the Adelaide Crows..
They said our coaches must vacate the coaches box at 3/4 time of the reserves game..
Then all the statisticians were to move out at 1/2 time of the reserves so the Crows can set up their stats people.
We were told to move out of the change rooms at 1/2 time.
We were told the West reserves players must stay out on the ground after the game for 1/2 an hour while the Crows warm up on the ground, then they went back in before coming out to play v Norwood.
Some one from the SANFL told the time keepers to blow the siren at the 25 minute mark of the last qtr robbing us of 3 minutes of game time so the Crows can have extra warm up time. At that stage we were only 11 points down and still in the game, whether we could have won  or not is not the point, the point is the Crows and the SANFL seem to be in cahoots.

Of course we denied their requests apart from moving out of the change rooms and players staying out on the ground after the game.

I couldn't believe what we were asked to do by the AFC. in regards to what is written above by FB.
To me this is the height of arrogance and disrespect to the WAFC from a club that has only been in our comp. for 3 years.
Doing the stats job for the club for as long as I have, yesterday was the worst ever with crows people walking all around us while we doing our job plugging in computers and a million other contraptions that there massive budget allows for, at times it was very distracting for me as far as trying to concentrate on what I do.

To blow the final siren 3 minutes before full time with us only down by 11 points on there request just says it all, and to have our players stay on the ground for 30 minutes after the game finished should not have happened.

To anybody who still thinks that the SANFL isn't compromised with the AFC being involved, yesterday was proof. I would hope a complaint to the SANFL first thing from our club on Tuesday morning in regards to this is a priority.

In a 10 team comp. one would assume all clubs are treated as equal, this was clearly not the case on Sunday, shame SANFL shame.

A big thanks to Andrew Marks for not giving in to them.

What an absolute disgrace,the AFC have no regard for any club bar themselves.
I really hope our club makes a formal complaint to the SANFL.

Total garbage.

Some of what is written in todays paper is not correct, this I know for a fact.

A request WAS made to the WAFC from the afc to clear the coaches box at 3 qtr time and the stats area at half time.
The decision to end the game early WAS at there request, not West or Norwood's.
Not unfair requests ? Well they are IMO as you are one of ten teams in the competition and as such shouldn't be afforded any more favours than all other clubs who compete.

Not really sure as to why this would warrent a report in the paper, perhaps another "request" from the afc to highlight there arrogance towards the SANFL.

The Reserves games are already brought forward 15 minutes to accommodate the Crows.

TV has nothing to do with it.

Testy is correct, the Crows wanted (and this is in writing) us to vacate the coaches box at 3/4 time and the stats bench at 1/2 time!

I think you'll find the SANFL will rule the Crows have acted outside the rules on the timing of the end of the game also.

The whole article is a disgrace to journalism. Nio facts checked and no input sought from BOTH parties.

I was happy to let this go, but reading 'articles' like that fires me up again.

As a club, we'll stick up for the truth to be known.

Will the club ask for a retraction or even better will the club make an official statement specifying that it is in the interest of correcting errors in the article

Haven't seen today's article, but I spoke to the Channel 7 producer yesterday and she knew nothing about last week's saga having anything to do with TV.

Also, the only thing stopping Adelaide having an academy team is Adelaide not wanting the costs involved.

In other words, not one part of Rucci's article bore any resemblance to the truth.

If they can't share a coach's box or a stats bench, why would you trust them to share an oval?
