the Sharks are a disgrace ... Maybe the integrity unit need to hire an entire team dedicated to investigating the Sharks

Great leadership by the NRL Commission and Toddy with their strong stance against this stuff.

“The Herald speculated...”

Stopped reading there in terms of hoping to find any genuine details. Still, the Sharks need to be cut from the comp. They have no respect for the rules on and off the field and are getting Melbourne-like in their arrogance.

It’s the NRL, where there’s smoke there’s bush fires

I'd expect that the Sharks will actually cut those players that were involved if there was any genuinely serious breaches. According to my second hand sources since Barry Russell took over Cronulla has been determined to weed out and crush the behaviour that's brought them so much grief in recent years. I know the sentiment that Cronulla wasn't punished sufficiently for the drug saga from many years ago still lingers but the new guy can't unfuck that woman, so to speak. What he has apparently been doing is putting a new broom through (he did self report the current financial irregularities) and if his form holds he will come down heavily on any proven offenders.

I have no clue what happened other than what's in the media but as it happened publicly some time ago and hasn't been a big blowup till now it might be just a few lower graders getting pissed up and fighting amongst themselves and some senior players not bothered. No matter, I'm sure it will be reported on and we'll in due course learn more.

Like always I'll view it like any other indiscretion from any player or any club, that is I'll wait till I have the relevant facts and disregard the emotive media reporting before forming a view.

I would be furious if I were Russell. They have lost their sponsors, they are trying to attract new sponsors. Two days after their coach gets deregistered and they get hit with a $800K fine, the players get involved in this. It would do my head in.

More silence from Greenberg. What is going on, Toddy.
if he needs to come out and make a statement every time a two year old video that the integrity unit has already dealt with gets re-released, then he will be an awfully busy man and won't have time for anything else
