Just thought I'd share with you all my email sent off to NRL HQ this afternoon: If at all possible, could this enquiry please be passed on to MrÂ David Gallop. Mr Gallop, I was pleased to see the official NRL press release welcoming today's 'not guilty' verdict in Brett Stewart's sexual assault trial. However, I note with interest your comment of "everyone is entitled to a proper legal process and the presumption of innocence." It is of my belief that Brett Stewart was not afforded this entitlement by yourself and the NRL when he was forced to stand down from his playing commitments at the beginning of the 2009 NRL season. If I recall, the official line from yourself and the NRL, with regards to the suspension, was that it was being imposed, not because of the allegations, but rather that he was intoxicated in public. One of the key points of the prosecutions case in this trial was that Mr Stewart was intoxicated and 'not in control'. An argument that was largely discredited on the way to him being found innocent. All I ask, Mr Gallop, is that you show some true leadership and admit that the NRL made a mistake by suspending Mr Stewart. I would ask that this be done in the form of an official apology to Mr Stewart and the Manly-Warringah Club. Thank you and I look forward to your reply.
