No recognition for salary caps cheats on the premiership trophy
Hahhahah i love it!
Manly should be on their as prmiers 07 & parra 09 simple as that just like the olympics & horseracing & any other sport in the world .. I bet you if cantebury had of been runners up greenturd would have done the right thing .. Why should you have no winner just because them aresoles cheated for 5 years..
Don't forget the one between those .40 nil...
Knew I should have put my dough on Withdrawn...... Doh !!!!!
If the NRL was serious about the two Premiership removals from 2007 & 2009, besides removing the Melbourne Storm name from the Premiership trophy for those cheating years, to remove any doubt that there were no official winners of those two years, they should have completed the punishment by taking back the Player's Premiership Winners rings too.
Ive said it before, but until Smith, Cronk and Slater retire, the Storm are still fielding an illegally assembled team.
And the sharks are still convicted drug cheats.
Ok, but the difference is - it doesn't stretch the boundaries of 'believable' that your average rugby league player, when told 'here, drink this', or 'here, have this vitamin injection' by the club doctor or sports science staff, does exactly that and assumes the due diligence about banned substances has been done on his behalf.
It does stretch the boundaries of 'believable' that said player, when asked to sign two contracts with different amounts on them, or when handed a brown paper bag stuffed full of cash for an hour's promo or *security* work, or when a $300K boat turns up in his driveway - somehow thinks it's all above board.
Multiply the stench of something fishy by a factor of at least 10 when one of the dual-contract signers is/was self-managed...
Bellamy knew all about it. Absolute disgrace that he escaped with no punishment. I'll forever despise him Smith , Inglis, Slater and co. who were involved and aware.
Cam Smith tribute for you lovers
