    Seriously NRL? Investigating players because they were possibly in the vicinity of an alleged incident? Really? Is this what NRL players can expect now?

    As for the media - the biggest headline I've seen about this alleged incident is that a NRL player may have been nearby. What a farce.

    Setting up an NRL integrity unit has ensured the media will get a never ending feed of headline stories, with almost all later will turn out to be non events.

    "Police said a large number of people witnessed the incident."

    Will the media be asking the employers of these people to investigate their presence near the fight? Will these people be named in the newspaper like NRL players?

      Integrity is not the first word that springs to mind when Greenberg is mentioned.

        The Integrity Unit looks into this but doesn't investigate other things? Go figure!

        I just googled - the opposite of integrity. I got http://www.ask.com/question/what-is-the-opposite-of-integrity

        It came up with the following:

        "The opposite of integrity is untrustworthy or corrupt. Integrity is based on honesty, trust, and honour. Therefore, the opposite would reflect shiftiness, evil intent, and mistrust. " The site's words folks not mine.

        Of course we all know the NRL has integrity don't we!

        It's certainly not evil, untrustworthy, corrupt, shifty with evil intent and mistrustful. :D

        Of course these words should not be taken as an attack on the integrity or otherwise of the NRL and if any such conveyance has occurred it was done entirely by accident. And any such conclusion should not be drawn by anyone who read the above.

        I for one have nothing but the highest regard for the NRL and am of the opinion that the NRL is beyond reproach, and is of the highest integrity.

        It should be a concern for the Players Assoc that players are being required to discuss events that are obviously still the subject of a police investigation.

        Are you people the same people that were of the opinion that the Ben Barba case should have been referred to the Integrity Unit, when he said he did nothing wrong?

        Surely it is the correct thing to do to refer it, and if there is no case to answer, so be it. It also wouldn't be the first time a player has pleaded innocence and has been lying through his teeth.

        Its all just typical of the position this David Smith and his team have put themselves in.
        Integrity, Honesty....and all the other bullsh1t adjectives they use.(are theses adjectives by the way????)
        A group of do gooders with no balls, because they want to look good and better than the other codes....
        My tip is league will fall further behind next year under this clowns leadership....I thought Gallop was a goose but Smith is all over him......

        If on game day there is a fight between fans on the Brookie hill 10 minutes into the 2nd half, all 34 NRL players, the two referees, the two touchies & the video referee all should be investigated by the NRL Integrity unit, given they were in the vicinity.

        Brissie Kid it is fair to assume the integrity unit wouldn't be required to investigate merely because a person was a bystander.

        In other words, the player might be considered a 'person of interest' (suspect) in an ongoing police investigation.

        If police investigate and decide there is no case to answer, then the Integrity Unit can still investigate whether there was behaviour or a misdemeanour that is relevant to the NRL code of conduct.

        However, if the police investigation hasn't been finalised then it is grossly unfair of the NRL or the player's club to expect them to answer any questions until they have had independent legal advice (accent on 'independent', ie not just from the club's lawyers).

        This is outrageous. If Thaiday was clearly involved why wasn't he reported?

          I feel calling themselves an Integrity Unit is completely over the top.
          They could do worse than follow the lead of our local council...

          @Moondog

          I had a little bit of a chuckle and thought of our Silvertails Jatz when I first saw that article a few weeks back and I immediately knew that the same bunch of Fraser Coast Chronicle comment whingers would take it (the "Jatz and Crackers with the Mayor" comment) the wrong way.

          I agree with news-hound with her comment to that article where she said that she thinks that those Fraser Coast Chronicle comment council whingers need to go out and buy themselves a sense of humor as they are always reading something into nothing and that it wouldn't matter what this council attempted to do it they wouldn't be happy.

          Yeah sure, the council has it's faults and our rates are way too high but these people go way overboard with their vitriol and even when the council does some things right, these same people will always find a negative or twist words to validate their vindictiveness. They even bring up the council in other articles that have nothing to do with council just to give themselves the satisfaction of giving it to them.

          I like to have a little fun and give it back to them (that is if the Fraser Coast Chronicle online editor approves my comment which a lot of the times they don't) and challenge them to step up to the plate for a position on the council at the next election to show that they can do so much better, but the ones that I have challenged usually decline. They haven't got the guts and would rather just whinge and bleat about the way things are instead of stepping up to the plate to show that you can do better.

            That's been my experience too Jethro. It always seems to be the same vocal minority who constantly complain. I guess it's easier to have a whinge then actually do something constructive.

            Any player who gives a statement to the 'Integrity Unit', is plainly stupid. In any event where the police are called, give your name and address and nothing more until you have consulted a solicitor. You are not obliged to say anything.
