    Wasnt the consorting/dumb photo thing on the same evening as he got done in possession? ... one of those merkins gave it to him .... i dont think he was previously warned .... and i imagine the video was probably done about the same time

    I think corey needed a smack in the head - and i hope he got it ... if a court appearance, 8 weeks and a decent fine arent enough then he is a lost cause

    ...and @strider rightly pointed out that Norman's conviction was overturned on appeal. Further evidence that it's the act or behaviour that warrants the sanction for bringing the game into disrepute.

    Was the conviction overturned or was it just the decision to record a conviction?

    Mate, seriously? This is from the EXACT POST you quoted

    I'm talking about the impact that each incident had. Pearce was splashed over every major media outlet in Australia humping a dog, forcing himself on a clearly unimpressed woman and pissing on some poor merkins couch because he was too drunk to function. His incident had a higher impact, despite not being as bad as Norman who committed a crime, and if the suspension is about bringing the game into disrepute Pearce's incident was much higher impact than Norman or Bromwich.

    He appealed the decision to put the conviction on his record. He was originally found guilty and a conviction recorded. After the appeal, the conviction was removed, but this doesn't change the fact that he was found guilty of the possession offence.. And......the appeal was finalised after the NRL's penalty was determined.

    Yeah I'm just saying that he wasn't later found not guilty, just that I think the offence is so minor that they decided not to record a conviction.

    Pearce never humped the dog .... an embarassing bit of stupidity
    The chick never made any form of complaint what-so-ever ... she hardly resisted when he gave her a peck - and then left when asked.

    He embarassed the f**k out of himself and made himself look a dumb f**k ... agree totally that he made the game look bad - but others arent covering the game in glory either

    He humped it. He didn't f**k it, but he humped it. Simulated sex with it, whatever you want to call it.

    All I'm saying is that although he didn't technically commit a crime, his incident was pretty high impact and therefore there would need to be a system whereby that is taken into account if, as the post I was replying to suggested, there was a framework for these off field incidents and the sanctions involved.

    Infinity Group Australia withdraws Sharks, Roosters sponsorship deal
    EXCLUSIVE Phil Rothfield, The Daily Telegraph

    THE NRL’s cocaine scandal has cost the Cronulla Sharks and the Sydney Roosters more than $1 million in sponsorship.

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal Infinity Group Australia has informed the management of both clubs this morning that they are withdrawing their support.

    The Sharks have been rocked by chairman Damian Keogh’s cocaine possession charges and the Roosters by Shaun Kenny-Dowall facing similar charges.

    The Roosters and Sharks have both lost sponsorship deals over the drugs scandals. Picture: Gregg Porteous
    Infinity is a sponsor on the back of the Sharks jersey and was to spend $700,000 over the next two years.

    The company also sponsors the Roosters for around $150,000.

    The Daily Telegraph is seeking comment from Infinity and the two clubs.

    Infinity used to sponsor the Parramatta Eels but pulled out over the club’s salary cap scandal.

    Now that's a much better response from the club and makes the Storm look weak as piss. I guess it helped being an NRL owned club.
