    Here is this morning's assignment.  A little birdie has given me a way to find the mobile number of the NRL Media and Communications manager.  

    Google: 'John Brady NRL' and the first post to show in the search will have the number you need.

    Throughout today let's drive him mad by sending this SMS:

    When will Gallop apologise to Brett Stewart for his double demerit defamation?

    Great idea. I'd also like to know when are Manly getting their $100,000 fine back for apparently bringing the game into disrepute.
    If not, are the Tigers & Cowboys going to get the same fine for their players recent arrests? I've had a gutful of the double standards, on & off the field, against our club!
    Gallop MUST be accountable!

    Interesting when Brett said last night that no-one from the NRL contacted him at any time since the allegations were made.

    What idiots do we have running this game.  Totally unprofessional and useless.  Time for all of them to go and none should be associated with the new independant commsion.

    EMAILS TO NRL SPONSORS

    Let us start the campaign to sponsors of the NRL advertisers on the TV Broadcasts.  The most obvious one I can think of is - VB. 

    Here is an email to send them:

    I am a Manly fan in solidarity behind the vindicated Brett Stewart.  In March 2009 he was unfairly suspended by the NRL and the Manly club were fined $100,000 by the NRL.  The recent court case has clearly demonstrated Brett Stewart was innocent of all that he was accused of.  Police officers also gave clear evidence at the trial that he was courteous, cooperative and appeared in control.

    There is no basis for the suspension or the fine and most likely Brett Stewart’s character and reputation were maligned publicly by the NRL’s action.  Currently David Gallop and the NRL are refusing to publicly recognise or apologise for their error of judgement and the damage done.  Nor will they acknowledge their inconsistency in how they treated this case against other clear examples of public drunkenness from high profile players. 

    Manly supporters wish to see Brett Stewart and the Manly club publicly vindicated by the NRL and David Gallop.  You are a major advertiser and sponsor of the NRL.  Please be aware that I will personally boycott the purchase and use of your products until such time as Gallop makes a public apology to Brett Stewart and returns the $100,000 fine imposed on the Manly club.
     

    Go to:  http://www.vb.com.au/ and find the "Contact us" link on the left hand side.  Please don't send this unless you intend to go through with the boycott.  It's crap beer anyway.

    How about a banner or demonstration outside the NRL head office? Something like that is more likely to draw media attention and perhaps embarrass Gallop into reconsidering and rescinding earlier comments and stances, related to Brett Stewart.

      A good idea and good to add to the list.  But it would only last a few hours.  The NRL will only understand one language - threaten their income stream.  Hence the campaign will also target sponsors through boycotts of their product.

      It is born of years of frustration.  It is childish rubbish to refuse to correct a wrong, and to usher a clown like Vautin out onto a stage to do your dirty work for you.

    Just sent this to the NRL..............

    When is David Gallop going to apologise to Brett Stewart for his disgraceful treatment by the NRL and Gallop over the last 18 months.

    The NRL reacted to rumour and innuendo instead of fact. David Gallop had deemed Brett Stewart GUILTY even before he was charged of any offence and he should resign immediately.

    Brett Stewart was suspended by the Gallop for being “DRUNK and bringing the game into disrepute” after an official club function.

    It has been proven in a court of law that this was not the case and indeed Brett Stewart was always in control, he was polite and courteous to the police officers who interviewed him.

    David Gallop and the NRL must apologise to Brett Stewart.

    It is about time that the NRL treated there players with some trust and respect.

    Brett Stewart has handled himself with great dignity during this whole sorry affair and the NRL must do everything in its powers to help restore his reputation to the levels it was when he was chosen as the “Face of Rugby League” before the start of the 2009 season.

    David Gallop is a blight on the great game of Rugby League and MUST resign.
    He is nothing short of a disgrace.

    I think everyone needs to chillax a little bit.

    Do people honestly believe this sort of action is going to help Brett move on?  He has proven himself to be a man full of class and I can't imagine him condoning this is anyway.

    Best course of action would be to contact the club and ask them to pass on your best wishes to Brett and ask if there is anything you can do to help.

     An apology will provide closure for Brett.  Manly could do with the $100,000.  Noone is being strong armed into participation, but some people want tangible pathways to attempt to make a difference (or at least have their protest registered).  The suggestions here can facilitate that.

    posted by Sue;
    How about we all write to Australia Post to complain about the deleting Brett from the stamps for TWO years. I wrote back in 2009 saying I was going to boycott Aust Post and got a reply which I still have. Their email address for anyone interested is ENQUIRY.STAMPSHOP@AUSPOST.COM.AU

    Whether this is all "childish rubbish",or "going too far",is irrelevant.As long as the people texting,FBing,e-mailing are civil,and keep it straight and truthful (unlike the gallopin' one),I see no harm in it.It's virtually an online petition.Obviously we can't send a written petition around to get ALL Manly supps to sign,so this is the new online way to do things.What do you guys think happens when some of our better known criminals (you know the ones I mean!!) move around the country to find a place to live...people COMMUNICATE to get them moved on from their area.
