IT’S hard to see the damagefrom Bendigo Spirit coachBernie Harrower’s comments on the club board in the wake of Sunday’s WNBL grand final loss being repaired.
The comments were strong,pointed andfinally made public a rift which has been simmering below the surface for a while now.
It’s unfortunate such issues were brought to light so soon after the finish of the grand final – perhaps later in the week would have been a better time but that’s history now.
Clearly, Bernie Harrower and the Bendigo Spirit board have fallen out and from this point it’s hard to see both surviving.
While it’s up to both parties to sort that out we can only hope everyone respects what’s most important – the rich club history built through the past eight years and the glory times of the past three seasons.
This is a great Bendigo story and it’s vital the role everyone has played in writing its chapters is recognised and reputations are not diminished by what’s sure to be an emotional and heated week.
At the end of the day it’s the club that must prosper above all else.
Let’s hope everyone remembers that – regardless of the outcomes.
