    They're allowed and there's no suggestions their bets were dodgy. But Fox League employees betting on the predetermined result of an award on an awards night hosted by Fox League which we know the result was leaked looks bad.

    It looks bad and I don't like the bloke so Kent might as well be guilty. That's the standard he puts on shitcanning clubs and players.

    You're right about that.

    Does he have a gambling problem I wonder ? May explain his always-irascible mood.
    If I disliked the game as much as him I'd find something else as life's too short.

    Shouldn't have if he's getting the good oil on predetermined markets.

    Possibly feeling left out that colleagues were stirring up an unsettled public without him, Telegraph reporter Paul Kent also 'threw' himself in the 'line' of 'fire' and paid a personal visit to Ken's at Kensington, where he spent a clearly harrowing evening tiptoeing from steam room to shower with the sort of pantomimic terror usually witnessed in high school productions of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Among the obviously distressing events of the night, Kent witnessed a man 'enjoying a video', sat in a sauna 'with two wordless men' (mimes, undoubtedly), and suffered the ignominy of another man (possibly Jason Akermanis) watching him shower, before racing off into the night shrieking with horror. To add insult to injury it seems nobody once reached over to enjoy a contemplative tug on Paul's presumably daunted penis, though according to his suitably purple first-hand account, "I felt more popular than the foreign exchange student". Which foreign exchange student exactly Kent is referring to is unclear, though it's fair to assume it isn't one of those being consistently beaten to death on the streets of Melbourne.

    Kent's piece is brilliantly idiotic, and full of veiled, clumsy references to sex acts so potentially sinister it's almost comedic. He writes with the manner of one newly returned from battle, too traumatised to go into detail, yet needing to share the burden of all that has been seen. "As a visitor yesterday, there were... things... I... cannot... explain,' he shudders, seemingly enjoying robust use of his 'insert ellipses here to signify deep moral distress' button.

    why would paul kent go to a bath house ?

    Wouldn't a News employee betting on that be akin to an NRL player doing it which isn't allowed.

    Not sure but seems weird.

    It’s not so much an NRL issue, but a criminal issue to bet with inside knowledge....

    Anyway, all betting on Dally Ms has been banned.

    Watching 360 Paul Crawley makes Paul Kent seem sensible and rational. Honestly, how Crawley even has a job in the media is beyond me. What a drama queen. As the great PJK once said of Peter Costello "He's all tip and no iceberg"

    Paul Crawley defending Manly, who is surprised by this idiot doing this, he is completely out of touch when involving, Manly, Roosters and Canberra.

    Does Crawley still look like a wrinkled pig and sound like he's about to cry?

    Creepy Crawley is worse than pk. Trying to compare it to a legal system. I’m pretty sure if you went to jail for stealing and then another seperate crime came out, the legal system can drag you back into court to prosecute you again.

    They had the opportunity to up the ante at the MRC, but the second incident only became an issue when the media became aware of it. This is the whole trouble. Reactive rather than proactive.

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to John Hewson.

    Edit: My mistake it was Costello.
