“I won’t get too personal on the news at this stage, but yeah, I do (hate them),” Wines informed 7NEWS Adelaide.
“There’s certain things about that football club that I don’t like, I think it’s just the DNA of the club and what they’re about and the sense of entitlement they have.
“I’m proud of my football club and we’ll be doing everything we can to knock them off.”
Energy defender Darcy Byrne-Jones insists it’s nothing private, he simply doesn’t like them.
“Obviously there is a big rivalry there,” Byrne-Jones mentioned on Thursday.
“Personally, I don’t hold anything against them as people. But as a club, I don’t really like their club – it’s a pretty simple answer.”
Regardless of each golf equipment being out of finals competition, the conflict will likely be something however a useless rubber with the Energy decided to ship out retiring legend Robbie Grey on a excessive.
“It (Gray’s last AFL game) adds a little bit more pressure … obviously you want to win more,” Byrne-Jones mentioned.
“But you have still got to stick to the processes of how you’re actually going to win.
“So winning contested ball, outnumbering, things that make us play well that is what we have got to focus on and that’s the best way to ensure that we send off Robbie in the right way.”
Byrne-Jones will play his one hundred and fiftieth AFL sport on Saturday evening along with his private milestone overshadowed by the pending retirement of Grey, a triple membership champion and four-time All Australian.
“I get the privilege to play a milestone game in Robbie’s last ever game,” he mentioned.
