At about 1pm on April 24, 2010 Melbourne Storm players marched behind Bellamy out of the new AAMI Park tunnel and towards a large and foreboding media scrum.
The united front was player-driven, Bellamy had planned to speak by himself but the choice was taken out of his hands.
“They said you're not going to do it on your own … so we're going with you,” Bellamy said.
“They were basically looking after me … the club had been hit hard, we'd all been hit hard, but for them to show that sort of unity and care, it was quite touching.”
