The footy is undeniably a physical contact sport. So far, the collision or bump is inevitable while eyeing for the ball. Port star, Brad Ebert, was in a difficult spot following the dangerous crash with Giant Harry Perryman at Metricon Stadium.
He was suspended for one week due to the rough conduct on Perryman on the first quarter of the Round Six match between Port Adelaide and the GWS GIANTS. Then, after a few months, he also suffered temporary unconsciousness during his 260-game career over Richmond. Soon, he announced retirement from his favourite sport, footy since he couldn’t jump into the risk of head injury again. Let’s reconnect to Brad Ebert’s net worth, relationships, and wiki-facts here:
Salary Caps and Net worth
In 2019, Ebert blew the dark shades of the club, revealing that he had been asked to hold back payments. It was Caroline Wilson who accused Port Adelaide of asking players to roll the money over a year because of the poor financial situation. Nonetheless, the Port star never deemed it as a financial pressure since he “thought it was almost the other end of the salary cap” where they “were getting too tight”.
When Ebert was queried on the reports, which said the club had a surplus of funds to manage salary caps for the player, he kept his club, Port Adelaide, away from the harm.
“I’ve never seen any sort of financial issues.”
“As a player, I trust the clubs are doing it for the right reasons.”
Initially, he played for the West Coast Eagles, signing a lucrative contract in 2003. Five years later, when Brad reached 17, he debuted for the team; at the same time, he emerged as a young debutant of the West Coast. Next, he secured a million worth contract from Port Adelaide in 2011 and kept his consistency throughout nine years till 2020 AFL season. the decades of footy commitment must have his pocket zipped in millions of net worth, though it isn’t figurative in nature.
Besides AFL, he is a family person
In 2015, he tied the knot to his sweetheart, Rebecca Ashton. There’s an interesting fact that holds the duo as an amazing couple. They graduated from the University of SA and shared their convocation uniform on social media on the same day.
Though it took them ten years to complete the study, the couple did it finally during the last year, holding their two children- Leo and Mark in between. He held a degree in a Bachelor of Human Movement, while she accomplished her Master of Clinical Physiotherapy. Brad’s wife, Bec is a director at PhysioXtra on Pirie St.
Football runs in his family
35, Brad Ebert is a mid-eighties sportsperson who shares his birthday on the 2nd of April. He is six feet and two inches tall, rejoining the hard-playing style like his father, Craig Ebert, Uncle Russell Ebert’s grandfather Trevor Obst, and great-grandfather Ken Obst. What a coincidence, his father, Craig Ebert played for the Port Adelaide too. Similarly, his uncle Russell Ebert boasts a Magarey Medal for Port Adelaide. Further, Trevor Obst owns a Magarey Medal for Port Adelaide, and Trevor’s father, Ken Obst represented three premierships for the same club.
There’s more; Trevor Obst’s one of siblings, Peter Obst also represents four premierships of the Port Adelaide. Moreover, Peter Obst’s son, or Brad’s mother (Christine’s) cousin, Andrew has played for the same club as well as Melbourne Football Club. It seems as if the Ebert family is destined to the football for ages.
