    After months of a wide ranging investigation that few clubs could emerge unscathed from, reports are coming out that many of the alleged Manly breaches stem from previously accepted deals rubber stamped by the nrl itself.

    In a move that would be laughed out of any court in the land, and one that also reeks of desperation, it seems that the nrl are allegedly changing some rules arbitrarily to retrospectively claim Manly have been non compliant.

    The nrl have spent 'substantial' monies throughout this investigation and it has now been revealed that the company that received payments to investigate wrong doings is in fact linked to the integrity commissioner himself!

    The NRL has admitted it hired a forensic accountancy firm linked to commissioner Tony McGrath to investigate alleged salary cap breaches at Manly and Parramatta, raising serious questions about a conflict of interest.

    His company, McGrathNicol, provides a range of financial services, including "successful preventative and responsive solutions to manage investigations, disputes, contracts, technology and commercial irregularities and obligations", according to his company's website.

    While there is no suggestion of wrongdoing of McGrath's behalf, the decision from the NRL's integrity unit to contract a company linked to a current commissioner will shock many stakeholders in the game, no matter how proficient it might be in uncovering alleged breaches of the salary cap.

    You know what I didn't do during the Parra drama ?

    Go to the Parra's supporters site and get all moist here over the reactions there.

    But each to their own.

    Sounds like the sh*t Storm from the Health Services Union. What a f*cking joke the NRL is when it comes to being a properly run $2b+ business.
    Well done tough Toddy.

    The fact the punishment has all the heft of a wet slice of lettuce indicates to me the NRL are just trying to save some face over this saga, and are hoping the Penn's will let it go.

    I can't stand the Penn's and would be delighted if our club came into new ownership but I don't think Toddy knows who he is dealing with here. This is a family who owns enough of weight watchers to turn a tidy profit and keep Zorba fed, and loves holding a grudge.
