A group of men in their late teens early twenties, an over-supply of testosterone, in prime physical condition, plenty of money, a sprinkling of celebrity, what could possibly go wrong?
I can tell you that in my seven years in the British Airborne forces we only had two of those ingredients, testosterone and prime physical condition and we had every misdemeanour the NRL players have reportedly done covered and then some. All except the filming sex malarkey, mobile phones didn't exist in the early 80's. I actually shudder to think what we would have been like if we added celebrity and money to the mix.
NRL players really are no worse than most groups of young men, we just get to hear about it because it sells newspapers.
That's the price of having a job in the public eye for better or worse.
