    They didn't do that to the Dogs in 2002. And the Dogs still managed to squeeze in Andrew Ryan (a SOO player too) in the off season.

    and as with the storm the dogs got a premiership 2 years later. They should have also had their roster gutted. History shows that cheating does pay.

    i remember listening to JJJ and they said "someone has just placed a 15k bet on the Storm getting the wooden spoon"
    Everyone went WTF, and then 6 hours later....

    Wasn't it rumoured quite a few people cleaned up on that?

    No idea. Would be good if there was some loophole, but like stated earlier I assume it all got shut down...

    Cameron Smith was probably one of them.

    We would have pissed all over you in the GF. After all, it should have been us and not the Storm in the GF.

    This is the only correct answer. It's a message and a punishment nobody would want to risk

    players have contracts, you can’t just rip them up.

    Really it happens all the time, how many tines have players gone from one club to the other?

    The competition has a salary cap, you can't just ignore it.

    I mean it's obviously related to the success of the cheating. Nobody really cares that Parra cheated because they lolParra'd it and won themselves a 9's title and a spoon. Imaging if the Roosters or the Broncos of 15+ years ago were found to be cheating, they'd be hated as much as the Storm. If Tigers did though? Well.... they did better than Parra I guess.

    in this case are you referring to the first contracts on the books or the second contracts that were hidden away ? that no player miraculously knew nothing about.....
