    If true,the tree shaking referred to by Annesley and Sullivan last night has its first victim.MMM is not exactly a solid source so wait and see.

    Don't be silly. Matty Johns is never wrong. Snake > chooks, Saints, ESL, Japanese Rugby.

    That's the only way they'll catch anyone. With a confession. The players would know this so there's no way they'll confess anything IMO.

    "Rumour is, whether this is true or not, he actually called his teammates in and said 'look guys, I just want to apologise because my name’s come up and continues to come up and I feel like you are being dragged into it'."


    errrr... there's no confession in that arti'cull'

    Though I confess I didn't listen, just read the transcript on that page.

    RE: Player Confesses

    Like most, I am not privy to a lot that is said in and about NRL circles. But I think there's gonna be a lot more of this 'there's a player that's linked with (but I can't name him)....'

    Journos, regardless whether they were a player or not, love having the inside scoop! As Susan questioned, who is a solid source?

    Matt Johns involvement suggests that it is very unlikely to have any veracity whatsoever.

    "Just to tell you the extent where this has gone. There are certain individuals out there, one in particular, his name is being bandied around 'willy nilly' and people are saying 'it's only a matter of days' and this sort of stuff," said Matty Johns.


    I can't believe Johns has outed Mason like that !! ;)

    I'd agree the only chance they have is someone (like in Armstrong's case) starts ratting on others.

    Confessions are only likely when someone sees the writing on the wall. They are being offered relative immunity at this stage for fessing up, so if you think you are about to be caught that is a big incentive to confess.

    All this stuff being propogated by the cab driver and co that no one will dob anyone in is rubbish.

    If there is an issue at a club and you are on 500k per year and can get 6 months or tossed for 2 years or life there will be players that will sing like a bird.A lot of these guys only option outside of the game is flipping burgers so never doubt that the self preservation motive will be alive and well.It also assumes that everyone in a squad are bonded together like one big happy family-and that is an even a bigger load of horse****.Footy clubs are like the rest of society-they have different cliques and groups with differing ethics and interests.

    I thought there were phone taps that had implicated certain individuals?

    They do have phone taps, but its still being investigated. An example being a player has called up the person in question and asked for something, "How's it going? Can I have 2 of the usual please". ASADA want to investigate what is the usual. It may very well be legal, but they need to check it out to make sure. Thats why they aren't officially termed as suspects but rather, someone of interest.
