Basketball ACT has the stunning news that they’re sacking Brigitte Ardossi for her unsporting efforts to trip on Friday night:
During the 4th Quarter of the game, after contact was made between Rachel Flanagan of the Townsville Fire and Brigitte Ardossi in the mid court, Ardossi fell to the ground and attempted to trip Rachel Flanagan.
The Capitals management and coaching staff have reviewed in detail the contact and the circumstances leading up to and around the incident and have taken the action of suspending Brigitte from further play with the Tradies Canberra Capitals until the end of the season.
Basketball ACT has not taken this action lightly and after lengthy discussion and consultation with the coaching staff, leadership group and the player concerned, believe that internal disciplinary action is necessary and appropriate by the club.
The Canberra Capitals do not condone this type of behaviour and have a long standing position of player conduct and true sportsmanship behaviour as being the pillars in which the club is built on. The Capitals have always been a club that installs a strong culture of quality of people, competitiveness and professionalism and the action and re-action by Ardossi goes against all of those ethoses.
