Yes thank you HM, I may have been a bit harsh on Boo.I think Bailey is actually a Manly Fan. But he has to feed the masses
Uneducated and stupid people will always believe what they're told by the media and jump on the bandwagon.Fox league posted an article about our appeal on Facebook last night, you should the comments section... People have no idea
There is a little article on page 60 of the printed DT - however no journo was game to add their name to the articleIt's very telling the so far the DT has published no articles about Manly appealing the penalty. Nothing at all.
The SMH has released it.
This highlights the NRl and news limited agenda of not presenting balanced journalism where Manly is concerned.
I don't read it that way. My understanding is that they are appealing the findings of the NRL, that is that they were guilty of breaching the salary cap and they are not just appealing the severity of the penalties/sanctions. By trying to get the findings overruled by the appeals committee, it follows that the the penalties imposed on manly will also be quashed..Again this is entirely a personal opinion based on some legal knowledge. Manly are playing it smart by appealing against severity rather than the decision. There is obviously something they have done that can be interpreted as illicit, but what they are no doubt doing is effectively making a provisional plea of guilt, but then taking the appeal against severity so they can demonstrate that the guilt is based on the ambiguity of the rules by which TPAs are used. If they can demonstrate other teams have done similarly through such ambiguity, it brings into question the right to prosecute on those grounds, if the clubs have no clear guidance or clarification regarding the TPA rules. This is about showing the TPA rules are ineffective and that penalties should be waived and the TPAs as they presently exist, thrown out.
Someone has to stay home whilst this guy does whatever he does....You need to get out more mate.
I don't think we've accept quilt. In fact I think there's a blanket appeal of the whole findings.
Maybe most of those pages were just pictures, and Toddy formulated his opinion from those, just saying800,000 pages in perspective. I read a lot, I’d say I would average 50 books a year for the last 40 years. That is 2000 books. If they average 400 pages each, which is ballpark, then that means I have read 800,000 pages. It took 40 years.
