    youre acting like it's all made up
    The evidence is in the fact that he paid them 50 to make it go away.

    like i said in the other thread, paying what amounts to settlement thankfully has not, is not and will never be an admission of guilt, all we know is that he paid 30k, what it was for is pure speculation on everyone's behalf, hell the lawyer he hired states no-one was paid anything and the 30k was the fee he charged Fifita to represent him in the agreement. it's entirely possible he did hide something, but it's also entirely possible that a bloke who stands to earn a metric fuckton per year gets told he can A) pay 30k for a release or B) take on the possibility of fighting a 2-year jail sentence over an incident that he's already admitted he has little to no memory of, in a country who's legal history with foreign tourists is INCREDIBLY suspect, and finds option A to be the overwhelmingly more favourable option, regardless of whether he believes something happened or not.

    so what the NRL are left with is no charges, no evidence and a grainy as fuck security camera where no-one can be identified and the supposed incident happens off-camera, but i'm sure RLPA would love the NRL suspending a player for something with exactly zero actual proof or evidence that he did that thing they're suspended him for.

    would love to know this long list of players who were suspended stemming from an incident with no charges and no conclusive evidence that they did what they were accused of.

    Fifita was charged, spent 3 days in gaol and then paid to get them dropped. A quick list of players who werent charged or were charged and later dropped or not guilty without paying them off.


    Dylan Napa (fined not suspended)
    Mitchell Pearce
    Brett Stewart
    Bulldogs mad monday
    Jacob Loko (for his fight with Taufua)
    David and Andrew Fifita

    Dylan Napa (fined not suspended) video evidence
    Mitchell Pearce video evidence
    Brett Stewart charged and trialed
    Bulldogs mad monday Mountains of video and photographic evidence
    Jacob Loko (for his fight with Taufua) video evidence
    David and Andrew Fifita evidence in the form of multiple eye-witnesses




    Try again, all of those suspensions have either got evidence or charges backing them, Fifita wasn't charged with anything, he was detained and then released without charge, if there were charges or if there were actual footage of him smacking the guard around, he would be suspended, but there's not either of those things.

    No charges + no evidence = no suspension. Presumption of innocence is not a hard concept to understand.

    I've heard about the St George empire too.... didn't see it personally.

    Amazing we only really hack on the Brisbane "empire", yeah?

    If it's bait, it's good bait.
