‘Our season was postponed, it wasn’t scrapped’: Bellamy hits back at Politis’ ‘unfair’ points demand.
Via The Herald Sun: Storm coach Craig Bellamy has weighed in on the points argument and is very much against Politis’ demand.
Bellamy pointed out that the season was suspended — not cancelled — therefore points should pick up from where they left off.
“Our season was postponed after the first two rounds, it wasn’t scrapped,” Bellamy told the Herald Sun.
“I’m thinking if it’s postponed then we continue on as we did before.
“I think (Nick’s demand) is unfair. You’re going to be upsetting a lot of fans. The determination was our competition was postponed …. we didn’t say that we are ending this competition and starting another one later on, it was we are postponing our season.”
Bellamy pointed out that the Knights had lost a key player for the year in round two and that could not be forgotten about.
“Nick made the point they didn’t play Boyd Cordner because he thought it was going to be a full season.
Bellamy also believes teams who won in the first two rounds should not suffer for having a good start to the year.
“Nick coming out and saying that, obviously he’s just trying to look after his own club,” he said.
“At the end of the day, the six clubs that have won their first two games, and obviously there is some clubs that have won one game as well, have fought pretty hard to win those games and I know we did.”
