My first post since GF. Sick to death of the daily speculation of who we will lose next, just like the rest of you. Enough is enough, and it's time for the Commission to step in. The Maloney and Scott affairs demonstrates that this is not limited to Manly. The IC should immediately ban all player contract negotiations. The negotiation window should be limited to one month after the grand final. Very severe penalties should be imposed on players, officials, managers and clubs for non-compliance (eg deregistration and/or large fines). Some sort of serious penalty should be imposed on journalists reporting on player negotiations outside of the negotiation window (eg banned from entering any NRL event). Discuss.
