    Why blame the Clubs?

    These days fines are read out like a passing ship.
    $10k for saying you don't agree with the referee!
    $50k for having a blue on the side-lines.
    $100k for allegedly being drunk (proven wrong) in a public place.

    These fines are just numbers on paper.... if you can afford them!

    It's like a CEO and an unemployed person copping a parking fine; one wipes it off like a dirty rag and the other wonders what he/ she is going to eat nex week.

    IMO, blaming the Club for wrong-doings by individual players is dead-set wrong.
    Why not hit the players for something we can all understand and serves as a financial reminder that this in intolerable?

    Hit Glen with a $20,000 fine or 5% of his salary.
    (I love the man as a player but not to the detriment of the club)

    and BTW, where does the money go?
    Back to News Ltd?

    I agree, I actually think the club should fine Stewart to help pay for the $50,000 fine we've been hit with. We pay him good money to help us win the premiership and now he will be sitting in the grand stands watching throughout the finals for the second year running.
