    G Lowe just quoted on 2HD radio news, saying this is a black day for rugby league, and the salary cap is there to be honoured by all clubs.

    There is no other explanation for why he would he come out and make such a public statement other than that he had made due enquiries & satisfied himself that Manly has done  - absolutely nothing -  wrong.

    Which is of course consistent with us not being that flush with funds in recent years. Interesting, because many people will assume Storm have not been the only cheats.

    Good News !At least theres one club in the NRL that can play it by the book and not have to cheat to be a dominating force in the competition.

    I must admit to some nerves on that front. When you look at our roster, we've got some pretty good talent, many of whom have only recently inked new deals. It does make you wonder how we can retain the quality of player we have. Also you would imagine it would be easier for a privately owned club to "rort" the system, rather than those controlled by football boards. Obviously I'm not saying anything is going on at Manly, just makes you think some times, I have the same thoughts when I've looked at Broncos rosters in years gone by.

    When was that?

    Always thought we were the only side never to have been done.

    i thought there were a few others too who had not been done.

    Still pretty concerning looks like there will be a lot of people pouring over books in the next few weeks. I am sure this wont be an isolated case

    This was apparently only found because of a whistle-blower.

    And Storm's stupidity for keeping the second set of books on the premises.

    This is the problem. unfortunately somewhere down the line you are going to piss off an employee or someone down the line and as such they are going to get you back. Silly silly stuff, I am sure just about every club has some minor breaches but to go to this extent is crazy

    Manly may be clean, but ...

    Most of the Storm players have premiership tattoos.  Imagine being a Storm player and waking up to look at your premiership tattoo every day for the rest of your life.

    Let us hope that we are clean and that we don't have any skeletons in our closet because Waldron will surely dump on anyone and everyone now because he is facing jail time.

    He made a comment in today's telepcrap saying that all clubs rort the salary cap and mentoned an (unnamed) player who they lost because of a sponsor paid $200k to the player which wasn't  included in the salary cap. 

    Lets hope that nothing is uncovered regading our signing of orford.

    Thats a bit of a worry because there was always the rumour he got 650K to sign and I remeber reading somewhere the club was paying him 450K on the books

    and who isnt on that list
    [/quote]

    Every team is somewhere on that list including Manly in 2004 but at least we appear to be one of the cleanest with that one and only breach and also Parramatta with one breach back in 2000.
