BRONCOS: ‘Gutted’ Phil Murphy Releases Statement Following Anthony Seibold Backlash
“I stand by those comments”
Brisbane Broncos part-owner Phil Murphy has released a statement to B105 following backlash around his comments following Coach Anthony Seibold's departure from the team.
His team released the following statement to B105 this afternoon:
MURPHY: I’d like to clarify some comments attributed to me. I told one media outlet that in any organisation if there’s a cancer, you cut it out.
I stand by those comments.
I’d like to stress those comments were not aimed specifically at Anthony Seibold but as a metaphor for what should happen if the culture at any club isn’t right.
I know he did his best but Anthony was not the man for the job and I support the decision to see him go.
I am extremely passionate about the Broncos and I cannot express how gutted & shattered I am about how this year has gone.
Broncos fans, the Broncos members, the Broncos families & also the Broncos Shareholders including me are all looking forward to getting this magnificent club back to where it belongs.
To finish I’ll say had the Broncos won 10 of their last 13 games we would not be having this conversation.
