Well no, they're really not, apart from being newspapers.
I didn't think he was cleared of involvement. They did find it was consensual between her and an unnamed player.
The Panel appointed by the South Sydney Rabbitohs has completed its investigation into a complaint made regarding inappropriate conduct by a Rabbitohs player in May of this year.
This investigation arose from reports in the Daily Telegraph on 14 and 15 September 2018, and emails sent by an anonymous complainant in May, June and August 2018 which alleged inappropriate conduct by a South Sydney player on a Facebook Messenger video call.
After being informed of the matter, the Club committed to investigate the complaint in consultation and co-operation with the NRL Integrity Unit. It appointed a panel consisting of Commissioner Lea Drake (Independent), Karyn Murphy (NRL Integrity Unit), Nick Pappas (Rabbitohs Chairman), Emily Grant (Rabbitohs Head of Operations, People and Culture) and Blake Solly (Rabbitohs Chief Executive Officer) to investigate and report upon the complaint.
Representatives of the Panel interviewed South Sydney players and staff. The Complainant was interviewed privately by Ms Murphy. The Complainant declined to be interviewed by the Panel, and did not want her identity disclosed, which the Club has respected. The Panel has also reviewed all available documentary material.
Based on a thorough review of the available evidence before it, the Panel was not satisfied that any South Sydney player engaged in any actionable misconduct resulting in a breach of their NRL Playing Contract, the NRL Rules or the SSFC Code of Conduct.
The Rabbitohs have no further comment to make at this time.
hmmm, the Rabbitohs press release seemed to miss this gem
"Another player then engaged in a private video conversation, in which screenshots of the call were taken, however the investigation found that it was consensual."
Clearing them of misconduct is not the same as clearing them of involvement.
If you review what I've posted in this thread in the last hour or so you'll know I'm referring to the "non-consenting" remark by @Babyface O'reilly. That is not factual and has now been shown by @myrrh ken to be false.
Again, this is not ‘news’, it is speculation around the private life of someone.
And you are lapping it up by judging Burgess without knowing all of the facts.
Your statement is exactly what these gossip mongers feed off.
And I’m the thick one?
We should let me and @carcharias investigate Flanagan
From the same article, the investigation was led by Lea Drake from Law Enforcement Conduct Commission, and Karyn Murphy from the NRL's Integrity Unit who used to head up police on the Gold Coast - yes there were Rabbitohs officials on it as well, but it's a shit go calling the credentials of those two into question, surely?
I know, but it's a shady sounding opening sentence.
Sounds rigged to me.
What is their phone numbers & I’ll pass them onto Flano.
He prefers emails mate
From his phone
Surprised no one is speculating that the baby is not Sams
Sounds like he has walked out on his marriage, not his children.
Exactly, and it would actually be better for the kids than the parents fighting all the time.
I’m still waiting for all the defamation lawsuits that Souths fans assured us was in the process from this episode. I’m sure Paul Kent and the Tele have got their lawyers waiting for it to come.
Anyhow it’s sad to see any marriage break down especially when kids are involved.
Like they say, better coming from a broken marriage than living in one.
Joel Clinton was fined 50k just for having a woman in his hotel room due to the season being full of scandals one year.
Who f**king cares.
