Adam Elliott has faced a Sydney court for his alleged involvement in the Canterbury Bulldogs Mad Monday celebrations.

The 23-year-old was charged with wilful and obscene exposure players were photographed partying naked at the Harbour View Hotel at The Rocks.

Elliott’s teammate Asipeli Fine was also charged with the same charges following the post-season bender.

The pair’s lawyers both asked for an adjournment until next month, when they will enter pleas of guilty or not guilty.

The Mad Monday celebrations plunged the NRL into turmoil in the middle of the finals series.

The Bulldogs were fined a record $250,000 by the NRL for their Mad Monday celebrations.


  1. What a load of crap.
    I don’t watch The Block but while flicking through the channels one night I noticed one of the contestants naked and running through the building with his private parts blurred out. I’m tipping that the ratings for this show are quite high so please can someone tell why there isn’t any backlash over this?
    Maybe the journo who thought it was a good idea to allegedly keep the camera on the Bulldogs players until they allegedly did something wrong should attend court also for stalking.
    Should be thrown out of court straight away.

      They celebrate the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras each year and in fact promote it as a tourist attraction and there is little difference between the two. Total hypocrisy and double standards IMO.

      The journo was invited as a special guest of the club to a CLOSED function.

      I think the doors of ALL clubs should be closed to this devious tool in future. That way journalists might finally learn where to draw a line when it comes to integrity and common sense.

    So you don’t watch the Block but when you came across a naked man you decided to not change the channel and left it on to have a good look. Seems you would’ve loved to have been in the pub on that Monday.

  3. This is still going on? Far out. The media is blowing this out of proportions. This wouldn’t be an issue if it happened privatley, but cause someone was nosey and showed up in the area of the Dogs Mad Monday purely to find a story, now serious reprocussions are occuring.

  4. What a complete and utter disgrace, and I don’t mean the club or the players.
    I don’t blame the police for pressing charges, given it become “public exposure” because of some goose/gease filming it and plastering it all over the media. That said, the rediculas thing about that is, they were actually the ones that made it public.

    Reg, I’d go 1 step further and would like to see all clubs, and players, give the whole organisation that goose/gease work for complete media silence. It’s not just those that filmed it to blame, it goes all the way to the editor etc for running with it. These parasites want/expect access to the sport/clubs/players etc, then do this, time and time again.

    I can’t even imagine how angry the players involved must be.

      Looking at the guy going to court over this he looked absolutely shattered. Yeah, it was the wrong thing but he had every right to think that as the function was closed it would have been kept “in house”.

      I actually did work experience before I left school at the old Sun newspaper in Sydney and I could tell you some tales. I had planned on taking it up but they are a sub-species mate. I wouldn’t want anything to do with them. They are complete ghouls (many of them) who actually have their fingers crossed hoping for disaster they can cover.

      I was a 16 year old kid in the back seat of a car when a journo jumped in the front seat of the car (he didn’t see me), we were called to a bomb threat on a plane at the airport and he said; “let’s hope the thing goes off and we can get some good pictures.”

      They would do an expose on their own mothers to further their careers some of them. They are a disgrace to the Woodward and Bernstein standard of journalism. They belong in the gutter and print mostly BS.

      That said, I knew a sports journo who was a good bloke when I was living on the Central Coast (and an Eels supporter to boot). So I guess we can’t do what journo’s do and generalise without reference to the facts. 😉
