    Cronulla chairman caught with some nose beers, and 2 Kiwis after the test match caught on CCTV doing it.

    It gets better and better.

    So why does NRL appear to continually justify said dickheads?

    Traditionally, cocaine has been popular amongst Australian stockbrokers, lawyers, tech entrepreneurs and hospitality tycoons as a recreational party drug – however, the bourgeoisie gloss is starting the fade after nearly twenty rugby-league-related incidents in the last 12 months.

    It's got nothing to do with the club. It's a personal choice made by a player in their own time. Whether or not any laws have been breached is for the courts or police to decide not a football club or the sports governing body.
    I mean these blokes run at each other flat out for 80mins a week placing unnatural stresses on their bodies - possibly causing permanent injuries - even brain damage ?
    To come out and point the finger at recreational / illicit drug use by players because it makes might bring the game into disrepute is simply ridiculous.
    Then again, I don't have an issue with players using performance enhancing drugs - and neither do the fans when they are quite happy to accept that today's players are much bigger, stronger, and faster than those of previous generations.

    I mean if you really banned performance enhancing drugs I doubt you would have a single club in the competition capable of fielding a team.

    On a similar note it really annoys me when I hear all the talk about players being role models and ambassadors and all this. Fair play to the guys who are able to do it well and the game does benefit from having the clean shaven, well spoken guys who do all the right stuff. But far out imagine if we as players were held to the same standards of behaviour that these guys are. They can't do anything in public without getting video'd or photographed and then the media gets a hold of it and all hell breaks loose.

    Another analogy would be your current job, if they controlled (more than some already do) what you could and could not do outside working hours, days off etc as well as having thousands of people constantly surveilling you just trying to find a bit of dirt they can forward to your employer to get you in shit.

    Interesting thing is the naughty blokes who they refuse to register a contract for.

    When this happens i surprised the player hasnt went to court and ****ed them for restraint of trade

    The governing body isnt punishing them for an indiscretion they are actually stopping them from working



    Always amazes me how the Todd Carneys have not played that card

    I've never understood this restraint of trade thing... isn't it just the same as some company not hiring me because they don't think I'm suitable for their company? What's the difference?

    If the bloke is a professional drugby league player then the governing body by refusing to register his contract is preventing him from gaining employment at his profession.

    Most of the time this is not for any great crime other than being your usual drugby league bonehead as well

    I reckon they would have **** all chance of it holding upo in court

    Just as the salary caps would also go if challenged

    That's their stupid fault for trying to be arrogant heroes. They're grubs that do grub stuff so no real surprise.
