    In a beautiful piece of justice amd irony I notice that Craig Bellamy and 'Two Books' Waldron have settled a defamation case with the NRL judiciary, for their remarks after the suspension of Cameron Smith in the week of the 2008 Grand Final. They have paid up $105 000 plus costs which are also in the six figure vicinity.

    Even better is that they lost that game 40 - nil and that match will never be forgotten.

    On another note, does anybody really believe that Bellamy did not know about the rorting going on at the Storm???

    I think he knew, but even if he didn't he was the coach behind the wrestling tactics, the slide-in-slater and the whole scum dynasty crap so he deserves all he gets.

    Shame they didn't do a episode of undercover boss with Brain Waldon. That would have been a tad interesting to watch

    Amazing how the storm cheating has been swept under the carpet and all forgotten by the media.

    Surely waldron should have had charges laid against him for falsifying contracts?  Obviously the storm/news/NRL didn't press charges.

    If the Storm were deleted from the NRL hands up who (outside of the club) would actually care?

    Give their licence to the Central Coast.

    I hate them as much as anyone, but unfortunately the NRL needs a team in the 2nd biggest city in the country.

    Ever heard of Auckland??

    and there was a hell of a lot more went on for it to become NRL than simply expanding into a 3rd state (plus an extra country and the ACT)

    Super League ring any bells???

    We need a team in Melbourne & a team in Perth.

    The game needs to grow in the UK, NZ, France & the USA.

    It's all to do with money, money comes from TV networks & TV networks will pay more for something that will give them coverage to more people.

    If we're ever going to compete with the AFL, we need to appeal to as many or more people than them.

    Acting like a little boutique sport that keeps to itself is the first step towards insignifigance.

    Superleague was about selling out the game.
    We need to sell the game without selling it out.

    Duff we are never going to compete with AFL in Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth. (or Tassie but who cares)

    Jjai Auckland were pre SL and if they had such talent why did they have players such as Phil Blake, Greg Alexander, Dennis Betts and Andy Platt in their team, I dont think those guys renew their passports in Wellington :)

    As Duff said it was and is all about money.

    Melbourne came in as a trade off for Axing Rams, Reds and Mariners, and the bastard child of super League has been a millstone ever since.

    This.
    While in the big picture we'll never compete with the AFL in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. What you do is create a niche market where the team get's 17,000 people rocking up to the game.

    In a little way the International game is growing.
    France will be more or less be playing Wales for a spot in next year's 4 Nations.
    UK crowd's have gone up and in Wales the sport has exploded due to work from Crusaders RL and South Wales Scorpions.

    In the US/North America the game is also growing from the roots up. Canada recently started playing again.
