There's more to it than meets the eye.But from what I've heard of the celebrations there's nothing particularly over-the-top, aside from Tyrone May being a dickhead.
When May came out with his 'dirt' remark, he recieved multiple likes and messages of support from his teammates; yuk!
The trophy did indeed break; how? we don't know. But once broken, they put the statues in a pram, took a photo and captioned it with "Goo goo gaga"...pretty disrespectful. Thus, comparisons to it to falling off the back of a ute at a street parade are a little off the mark.
Cleary has form with COVID breaches. Now, we learn his roommate travelled to QLD (not Cleary's fault) and was seated in the reserved area with Nathan's family?! Huge coincidence!
As for singing Glory Glory, hardly the crime of century but someone had to be the defeated side for Penrith to win...how bout winning with a bit of humility?! Word has it, Panthers took exception to being mocked by Melbourne the year before, yet here they are dishing it out. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
At the end of day, none of it is a shock but it's just more crap from idiot footballers...i've seen enough of it over the years to last a lifetime.
