Ray Hadley blows up at ‘muttonhead’ Panthers’ ‘disgraceful’ celebration antics
Ray Hadley has torn shreds off the “disrespectful” Penrith Panthers players who broke “the emblem of the game”.
The Premiership trophy, which depicts NRL legends and opposing players Norm Provan and Arthur Summons embracing after their match, was allegedly broken in two, and the statue placed in a pram.
Ray was furious the players have failed not only to respect the great men immortalised in the trophy, but to live out the spirit of sportsmanship it conveys by mocking rival Rabbitohs online.
“To think that trophy … now has to be repaired because it’s been treated like some plaything by these muttonheads is inconceivable.
“As someone who’s admired those men throughout my broadcasting career, I am greatly offended that these idiot players don’t understand the concept of respect for the game, and respect for two gladiators.
“Penrith … you’ve done nothing but cover yourself in disgrace!”
