    No coke on the Gold Coast

    It looks like the rest will get off too if the only evidence is Karmichael squealing like a pig.

    Stew did some unspeakable things for a line when he was younger. Some of them he didn't enjoy either.

    I can't imagine KHunt will be getting any invites round to any players gatherings. Snitch.

    The cases against the players always looked flimsy, and I guess now that's been seen to be the case.

    I actually hope something (in the form of retribution for the players) comes of this to be honest.

    I can't imagine the cops wasting their time on a case like this if it was a general member of the public and not blokes like this with a higher profile.

    Whether they acted and then felt they were forced to follow through due to the media attention is something that needs to be thrashed out later internally amongst the cops - but if the RLPA had any testicles they would be ensuring players whom they apparently act for, aren't dragged publicly through the mud like this in the future.

    It's lose lose for the coppers though. If they didn't go after them the media would complain it's because they're footy players.

    In the Southport court today, Chief Magistrate Chris Callaghan outlined text and phone conversations between alleged cocaine cartel kingpin John Touma and Greg Bird in the lead up to his buck’s party and on the night of his wedding in November and December last year.

    Magistrate Callaghan said he did not believe the prosecution would be able to convince a jury in “any way, shape or form” based on the evidence presented.

    “In my view there is no sufficient evidence ... for it to go to trial,” he said.

    “At the end of the day there’s a lot of speculation. There is suspicion but there is lacking proof of Bird being involved in a conspiracy to have Touma supply to him, or through others to him, cocaine.”

    Im sure Bird was just texting him to get a tip on a good church or bowling alley to visit on his bucks day. Talk about the weather maybe.

    Did Karmichael actually roll over on these guys or did they pick all this up from his phone records/messages?

    An interesting development is that a statement from former Suns star Karmichael Hunt, who was also tied up in the investigation, makes up part of the police prosecution case against Falloon. wrote:

    OSM makes a good point about the media's very poor treatment of rugby league and the players. It's about the only good point he makes, but it is a good one.

    Stew rolled over for a dealer once, but only to take it like a man.

    A poster here is actually named "Stu" in real life.

    Is it the same person? Will they be banned for using an alt?
