The Winner Is… Not that Important.

They say that silence is golden and with a lack of silverware let alone gold, that may explain the latest lack of communication from Perth Glory.

Many were uninvited, some unable to attend, and some could not justify the price of admission to the club’s Most Glorious Player Awards at Crown Casino on friday night. On occasion, in previous years as with other sports, the winners of the various awards have been announced in an embargoed press release, but with twitter and the like one can understand why that does not happen any more. However one would have expected a press release to have been sent out once the winner was announced, as with modern technology it could have been sent from a phone or an iPad, no one needed to go into the office to send it.

Two days have passed since defender Michael Thwaite was honoured as the Most Glorious Player for 2013/14 but still no media release has been sent out, or maybe it has but only to a select few. Not only that but the club’s website does not even have an announcement as to who won the major award and all of the other awards on the night, such as Young Player of the Year and Clubman of the Year.

What sort of message does this send to the playing group? Sure it may have been a disappointing season, but to some of these players winning such an award will be a highlight in their career, to give it so little importance is disrespectful, and a very poor reflection on the club as a whole.

Coupled with the fact that original invitations were apparently sent out without the date of the event on them, and the club forgot to invite its radio broadcast partner, the ABC, who were meant to present an award, its hard to believe that the club is in fact now on the right track.
