Coach rips ‘distasteful’ Treloar critics after win

Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge has unleashed on the “distasteful” criticism of star midfielder Adam Treloar after his side booked a spot in the 2021 grand final.

Despite coming into the preliminary final against Port Adelaide as rank underdogs, Beveridge’s men were at their rampant best and ran out 71-point winners.

Following his side’s win, Beveridge wasted little time before praising Treloar, who finished with 23 disposals and a goal in a bounce-back performance after a quiet semi-final.

Beveridge took aim at a number of media critics who had unloaded on Treloar in the wake of his ten disposals against the Brisbane Lions last week.

“Some of the ridiculous commentary and the insinuations around Adam was just so distasteful from people,” he told Seven after the win.

“If you’re going to fail at something, don’t fail at trying to pull people down.

“I just don’t know how people can sleep next to people like that when they’re so vindictive.

“I was so happy to see [Treloar] play well tonight, and all the boys, we’ve got a lot to look forward to.”
