    There is no end in sight to the fallout from the Melbourne Storm salary cap fiasco, with two sponsors dumping the troubled NRL club.

    Major sponsor ME Bank announced this morning it was withdrawing its support for the club after yesterday's revelations forced a rethink.

    "ME Bank believes in the principles of strong governance, transparency, integrity and fairness and we seek to ensure that all of our corporate and community partnerships uphold these same values," chief executive Jamie McPhee said.

    In addition to that:Sportswear manufacturer SKINS, a fourth-tier sponsor whose latest advertising campaign slogan is "cheat legal", also dumped the club.
    Also Host Plus is weighing up its options atm and is tipped to pull out also.
    They have been deserted,this in itself could mean the end of them imo,as i doubt any new prospective sponsors would want to go near them atm.

    Can hardly blame the bank not wanting to be associated with people fiddlying the books.

    Unless News Ltd is prepared to pump more cash into them I can see this being their last season.

    Here come the Bears - who will Tookey & ryan support now?

    I had a little smile on my face when I saw footage of Melbourne with ME Bank on their jumpers.

    I kind of thought it stood for ME 2.

    Not a good look for a bank to be caught up in a salary cap problem.

    Has a certain ring (not premiership) to it.

    Their 2 main ones are now gone, and Kooga is considering whether they want them to wear their jerseys or not

    They let Newcastle, so what message does making this stance send to kids?
    That drugs are ok but embezzlement isn't?
