    Same Twiz and for me, that's the crux of it.

    No amount of injunctions, complaining about TPA's being added, claiming Watmough's retirement would mean we were under, etc. actually excuses the fact that I reckon we did try and cheat and for me, after spending 6 years whinging about Melbourne and boats and 2nd sets of books, etc, it is inexcusable and we should be punished.

    Absolutely. But I would qualify that by saying that, in determining the penalty, we should only be hit for the breaches we've actually committed.

    Do you think the penalty will be any different?

    Dunno. I don't know wot ones we done. And I don't know what other communications exist to place the existing recordings in a different context.

    If the allegations relating to the false invoicing stick, then no, I don't think the penalty will change. Nor should it.

    Brent Read was just on triple M.

    Basically believes with Morgs going to Melbourne and chocs retirement may not be enough to get us under, we may fall a little short meaning we may need to offload another top 25 player on possibly on lower tier bracket.. If that's the case then I can't possibly see how we can do it unless an English club can help us out.

    There is something else that I heard about late last week that might come into play and help us out Stagger - if it's true of course.

    So what happened to Schuey's beliefs of the NRL numbers being wrong? ... was that media speculation? Was schuey wrong?

    Seriously wtf is happening with getting cap compliant by Friday?

    One day were 200k under the cap, the next if Watmough retires it will be enough to get cap compliant and now today's new one is even if Watmough retires it isn't enough?

    How will anything be resolved if there is no clarity.

    Driving me bonkers!

    Lol. So if we can't get compliant, no chance in seeking a reduction in the penalty

    He was a bit coy about it but he certainly didn't dismiss the story..

    At the end of the day schuey se ms pretty chilled about the situation and believes it will happen so maybe we've got to sit back and trust his word on it

    Perhaps there is a game going on ... even the reports of schuey finding stuff didnt add up seemed to suggest we were still over about 200k ... which means we still need watmoughs money ... maybe the nrl wont play ball on getting that sorted quickly unless we drop the other stuff??? ... whi f**kin knows

    I'm voting yes and yes. TPAs make a mockery of the 'level playing field' and so why not rort the cap?

    Therefore, rorting to catch up (like we've done) is fine. Rorting to stay dominant (Melbourne made four straight grand finals and the Roosters were minor premiers three years in a row) is wrong.
