Go Blades Go Sign Back Where It Belongs
The photo above was sent by a member of the Blenheim Blades organization of the Blades’ sign in the team dressing room.
Amherstburg team officials immediately launched an investigation into the sign after becoming aware of the photo which involved a number of players posing with the sign, many pointing their sticks like guns at the camera.
One Admirals player also used the “N-word” in comments on Instagram below the photo.
“We do not tolerate this type of behaviour and I can assure you that the guilty party will no longer be associated with our team,” wrote Amherstburg Admirals general manager to CKSN.ca after becoming aware of the issue.
Ewer also assured CKSN that none of Amherstburg’s coaching staff were aware of the sign being removed from Blenheim, and that their team bus did not stop to remove the sign.
While the team has yet to confirm, CKSN did receive reports Thursday afternoon that a member of the Admirals organization has admitted taking the sign, and that Amherstburg has cut ties with the individual.
