    It would only leave 32 points available - so more than 3 losses would make the 8 unlikely

    So if Parra had have lost on the weekend would it have been 10 points? Pathetic. Fine and sack/potentially jail the board like in the real world.

    Apparently yes. Will wait and see how severe.

    This is where the NRL can actually set the example. I guess they have to dock points as they technically have had an unfair advantage. So if they come down LARGE on the board then maybe the next lot at whatever team will think twice.

    Sucks for Rugby League fans.

    I don't like it, I think it sucks but there is a silver lining.

    "meh".

    I think Melbourne sucked the life out of salary cap scandals. Maybe because it's not a perennial high-flyer like Melbourne, even if the Eels are doing well this year. No tall poppy syndrome.

    Thing is they pull some of the best Sydney crowds, which is a shame for the game.

    Looking at their draw over the next 2 months it's actually pretty decent. Hopefully they don't drop a game and give position 8 a run.

    Whats crazy is their lack of success over the time they have been rorting the cap.
    If they had won titles it would be much bigger news but geez its still bad.

    Not only are they cheaters, they are incompetent cheaters that cant even cheat properly.

    It was always going to happen to some team, might as well be the Eels.

    The only problem i have is the NRL forcing the Eels into governance change yet doing absolutely nothing themselves to clean up the TPA mess. Its a guarantee that all 16 clubs help negotiate these tpas and none are done at arms length where clubs arent meant to know about them, why else would managers be emailing clubs asking to organise them, or make payments because they fell through???

    You're game mate, do you seriously reckon you will? What do you reckon you'll have to go from here? 12 and 3?

    Youll need 28 points to even be in the conversation. There are 15 games remaining. After getting 4 free points from the bye round, youll have to go 12 from 15 and will still have to rely on F/A.

    Parra are done for 2016. See you next year. Come in under the cap next time.

    I question the timing and whether this increased the severity of the punishment.
    Has Greenberg confirmed timings as yet?

    I didn't particularly like the Storm punishment and I don't particularly like this.

    Surely there are more appropriate punishments that accurately penalise the perpetrators, as opposed to any innocent parties i.e. unknowing players and particularly fans.

    Regarding players knowing: Of course the players know, the Storm players knew as well. Easiest way to check is what they're lodging as their tax returns, if they're claiming the extra payments they're aware of the extra money being paid above what they signed for. Who can blame them though, if someone at my work walked up to me and handed be $10k under the table I would smile, nod politely and keep my mouth shut.

    Someone alluded to it this morning on radio. If they don't give points penalties, and make it purely a financial penalty, then you'll have fall guys taking the entire blame for deliberate car- manipulation.

    And some teams will consider that a risk worth taking.

    Sure, points are harsh, but it's the big stick. Without it, things would be much worse IMHO

    That's hardly a for sure tell though, the players probably aren't getting these extra payments in paper bags in back alleys, there's every chance these were being presented to them as legitimate third-party agreements & then swept under the rug by the shady fools running the place.
