    The Manly club is well within its rights to complain about the treatment  its star player Brett Stewart (and the club itself) received from the  NRL after their controversial 2009 season launch.

    Following the  Todd Carney and Benji Marshall incidents of the past week or so, Des  Hasler lashed out in frustration and made comment about the lack of  consistency the NRL has shown when dealing with off field incidents.

    The best article I have read so far on the whole topic.

    Yes I'd agree a good article, I just wonder however how the whole thing is affecting Brett, has anyone on here talked to him in recent times and if so how was his demeanor?

    Absolutely agree Bones.  Got straight to the core of the issues.  Full marks to League Unlimited and the author.

    Meanwhile someone should ask Gallop if he has ever had an alcoholic drink at an official function.  If he says yes, then he should immediately suspend himself for each function for 4 weeks for being intoxicated (a single drink "intoxicates").

    If he argues he wasn't heavily intoxicated then bingo - that's what happened with Brett.

    Gallop's already brought the game into disrepute because of his non-action and inconstency. He's created the media circus. He should suspend himself for 4 weeks and fine himself a 100k.

    That $100k can then be forwarded to Manly as a credit on the fine. Sounds good.

    Mark, we were chatting to him at the factory outlet yesterday and he seemed ok. He was joking around with the other players and seemed his usual happy self. He admitted he is very nervous about the game on Saturday after what has happened the last two years with his knees, which is understandable. I didn't think it was appropriate for me to ask how he felt about the Gallop situation, so I didn't.

    Thanks mate, you'd expect him to be nervous and yes correct of you NOT to mention that.

    Just imagine if you will the cheer he'll get from us on Saturday night when he runs out. Almost worth the cost of being there just for that isn't it??

    I would love to be there but unfortunately I can't.

    Mark, instead of just a cheer make sure the MWTS Crowd give him a standing ovation when he takes the feild and when he comes off.
