„The team is sorry for the performance in Vechta“
Die bittere Auswärtsniederlage am vergangenen Wochenende in Vechta hat nicht nur im Fanlager und Umfeld, sondern auch bei der Mannschaft der Eisbären Bremerhaven Spuren hinterlassen. Vor allem die Art und Weise hat bei allen Beteiligten für großen Unmut gesorgt. Aus diesem Grund haben sich die Eisbären-Spieler nach dem Training zusammen gesetzt und ausgesprochen. Eisbären-Kapitän Derrick Allen hat nach der Aussprache folgendes Statement an alle Eisbären-Fans verfasst:
Dear Eisbären Fans,
as you know at the moment, the club is in a very tough situation in the Beko BBL. We lost a very important game in Vechta this past weekend, which puts us in place 15 in the league!
We as a team can understand the hurt and angry you might feel toward the team right now! All the players and coaches, are embarrassed with the way we performed on Saturday!
The support you as the fans give us, is very important to all the players and coaches! The team is sorry for the performance, and not showing enough fight, spirit, and love for the game as we should.
We ask you not to give up on your team, and that we will fight, scrap, show emotion, and give our all against Trier this Sunday. Because you will not see that team again, that you saw in Vechta.
You will see a team that fights every game as it is our last game. Our team needs our fans, and please continue to support this eisbären team! We will turn our season around! As the captain of this club! You have my word, along with the other players and coaches! See you on sunday!
Let’s beat Trier!
