You don't have to Einstein to figure out that the official wages paid to players would have to marry up with the cooked books that the Storm presented to the salary cap auditors otherwise they would have picked up on this ages ago. Therefore how did these extra payments over and above the salary cap get to the players ? If the players are receiving payments from two seperate sources or from other parties then they will have a hard time explaining how that didn't ring any alarm bells with them. Obviously this will come out under further investigation, and I'm not suggesting that any player has knowingly participated in the rorting. BUT if it does come out that the certain players were complicit in this cheating than what will kneejerk Gallop do to them ? He suspended Brett Stewart for 4 weeks for breaking the code of conduct for the heinous crime of being allegedly refused service at a bar. What suspension does unethical behaviour such as willingly participating in systemic cheating carry ?? Or isn't that included in the player code of conduct ?
