Manly the Salary Cap Cheats

Postby yourhero » Mon Dec 11, 2017 8:27 pm

So after the years of vile abuse directed at our club, players and fans, these scumbags have been caught rorting the cap for at least 5 years...

Hypocrisy is running wild right now!

Couldn’t have happened to sh*tter group of fans. Ahhhhh! What a wonderful day ;D

Yes, but they'll only get a fine which will be paid by their rich benefactor so they will not really be punished.

Much like the initial investigation into Parra, it is clear that Manly aren't co-operating with the NRL in the slightest.

The NRL will have to prove their case without an inside informant which, unfortunately, the NRL aren't very good at. They have proven themselves incompetent in investigating salary cap breaches without being spoon fed information.

Manly's response to the breaches is no shock. Dodgy to the core.

I'm hearing rumours that it will be a fine that comes off this year's salary cap so that they can't sign new players and that's it. What a soft punishment!!!

Wow... Devastating penalty for obvious cheating and a refusal to cooperate or admit guilt. F*ck Manly and Greenberg.

Joe Kelly, former Sea Eagles CEO during cap rorts, now Roosters CEO, has been suspended for 9 months. The Roosters are considering a legal challenge to the suspension.

Hearing a ~$1M fine for the scumbag of a club. No points lost as the rorts relate to previous years and they are now 'cap compliant'.

At the very least, they should have their cap reduced for this year and potentially subsequent years.

Here is the official Punishment.

https://au.sports.yahoo.com/league/a/39628976/nrl-bans-ex-manly-boss-for-salary-cap-rort/

"NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg confirmed on Monday the Sea Eagles would be fined $750,000 - $250,000 of which is suspended - over the matter.

Chief operating officer Neil Bare and former chief executive Joe Kelly - now with the Sydney Roosters - have had their registrations with the NRL suspended for 12 months.

Manly will be forced to play with $330,000 stripped from their cap for each of the next two seasons.

The NRL claims it found instances where a total of 13 players were promised a combined $1.5 million in payments outside the cap, usually through a third-party system."

Combine the monetary 'fine' with the reduction in salary cap and the net result is Manly only $90,000 out of pocket.

Do you think they will be OK???

F*cking joke.

So does that mean the Roosters are now going to be audited. With the ex Manly CEO in charge and the fact O'Sullivan the man named as being the one who did the contacts for Storm during our salary cap dramas, was at the Roosters for many years and also the fact they have a signed a number of big name players on big contacts over the last few years, questions needed to be asked

Best bit is that Bozo has been banned from being involved in the game.

Worst is Greenburg trying to pretend that the punishment is harsh when it barely qualifies as a slap with a wet lettuce leaf.
