BRONCOS BASKETBALL SUPPORTERS BANNED FROM GAMES
Having become aware of an incident that occurred during the Big V basketball game between Sunbury and Hume City on 5 June, where the relatives of a Broncos player entered the playing arena to remonstrate with the referees who were officiating the game, the Club has banned those persons from attending any Big V games that the Broncos participate in.
In announcing the ban, General Manager Gareth Alexander said “Our Club does not condone any disrespect or inappropriate conduct toward referees. Within our own competition environments, we deal with any such instances swiftly and decisively so that our officials can continue to feel safe and supported in the challenging role they play in ensuring that games are played according to the rules. We have contacted the Big V competitions manager to let him know the action we have already taken and that we will fully co-operate with any actions he initiates to enforce appropriate conduct standards.”
