    This question was ask on the forum and this was the answer

    [Comment From KneejerkKneejerk: ]
    Have you apologised to Brett Stewart yet for your reactionary suspension of him on the basis of hearsay evidence that has since been disproved in court.



    Reponse
    David Gallop: Kneejerk, the court decision in relation to Brett Stewart did not address the issues that we dealt with him over.


    Only question on stewart alllowed to pass through i see- funny that

    Then what are the issues that they dealt with Brett if it wasn't related to the evidence produced in court?

    They allegedly suspended him for breaching the code of conduct at the launch party not for being drunk or being accused of sexual assault. Basically they are weasels who succumbed to media hype and wanted a get square because they felt Brett had embarrassed them and cost them money with respect to being the "face of the game".

    Farce. "Fan" questions to News Ltd SuperLeague lawyer, David Gallop, hosted and controlled by ... News Ltd.

    So many Dorothy Dixers, so much avoidance of responses of substance, so little accountability, that it was as interesting as Parliament question time.

    So what did he get suspended for then if it had nothing to do with the case??

    It was proved in court that he was in control and not 'drunk'.

    In essence, Gallop single-handedly legitimised the phase "disgraced" to be continually added to the name Brett Stewart in the media - through his public fury at Stewart and his unprecedented extended suspension of him. In so doing he effectively damaged not just Stewart's reputation but the reputation of the game.  And now the evidence is out ... disgraced for exactly what?  

    I understand that the witnesses for both defence and prosecution testified under oath Stewart was in control and not drunk at the function, and there were no witnesses testifying otherwise. And Gallop's suspension related solely to the function.

    So did Gallop rely on mere heresay and rumour to criticise and suspend Stewart?  Or what EXACTLY did he rely on?

    Where is the admission of overreaction?  Where is the apology? Where is accountability for Gallop?

    Here are some extracts from an email I received from the NRL in response to me querying whether they would be apologising to Brett now that he had been found innocent.

    "....At no stage did the NRL take action against Brett in relation to those matters that were the subject of police charges or the subsequent court case..........

    ....That said there were issues around the Manly pre-season function in 2009 that led the NRL to take action and the court case and the jury made no ruling into the events of that function.....

    There have been a number of players since who were suspended in line with the same principles, just as there have been players whose matters have been determined, as were Brett’s,  by the legal system alone...."

    That is their story and they are sticking to it.

    Well what happen at the seaosn luanch then - from what I am aware his behaviour at the Manly Wharf bar was strongly review by the jury (inc. video footage) as this was the crutch of the crown case (ie he was drunk).
