    Sure, don’t get me wrong, I do get where you are coming from, however I honestly think the club has done the right thing by the players and in particular the youngsters coming through.

    I honestly thing they will be better off under Morris then they would have been under Flanno.

    I see the point, I just don't think it's very relevant. Even the DT hasn't stooped to making a deal out of it as far as I know.

    I think Morris' 13 year, 300 game career and clean record plus his successful lower grade coaching career stands way above a 5 week period in 2011 where he may have unknowingly been treated with a banned substance.

    Who is "beyond reproach"? Bellamy coach of the biggest cheats? Bennett and his coachbox buddy Andrew Gee? Man of his word Ivan Cleary? How many merkins get Joey in to help?

    All the good ones are tainted if you wanna get picky.

    That is a fair point, just think it would have been better for Cronulla to distance themselves a bit.

    Except the actual finding in this case was “unknowingly and unwittingly”. Unfortunately we weren’t really given a proper explanation as to what actually happened beyond that. So the club has never had the opportunity to heal properly.

    Still just a shit smell hanging over everyone, guilty or otherwise.

    Why?

    Most people probably don’t even remember he was in the team then.

    Because they are in the middle of another cheating investigation, what is this the 4th or 5th.

    1 of which the club dobbed themselves in for.

    The other one was the drug bust without one positive test or any evidence.

    I didn’t.

    On Morris he is actually probably more qualified from an academic perspective to be coach than anyone in the league.
