NRL steals Storm's thunder

The National Rugby League has today stripped the Melbourne Storm of the 2007 and 2009 premierships and its 2010 competition points after confirming a series of salary cap breaches amounting to at least $1.7 million over five years.

Whilst the Storm have now been caught and have got what they deserve I still have 2 things to work out in my head. Just how did Brisbane get away with it for over 20 years, and worse still 3 largish bets were placed today on betting agencies for the Storm to get the wooden spoon. Therefore, someone close to David Gallop must have let the cat out of the bag for sure. I smell an investigation in David's office. The whole thing is a shame really as even though I am a Roosters supporter, I loved watching the Storm play.

Well done NRL. Maybe it is time for the AFL to have a good look at what is happening within their area of sport. We hear of big numbers being paid to players of various Clubs. Some of these would appear to make it impossible for these Clubs to operate within the AFL Salary Cap!
