  1. Sick and tired of these idiots bringing down the NRL and their respective clubs…with their irresponsible acts.

    Once charge they should be stood down immediately and their contracts torn up and kicked out of the NRL for good if charged.

    • You just support such a terrible club the sooner the nrl kick that stain of a club out of the competition the better along with there clueless and useless fans

        • Apparently there was nothing to answer for. Truth lies a little closer to home hey Sammy Boy, where Phoebe isn’t turning blind eye as Souths and NRL did. Mind you Souths have a steeped history with not holding players accountable. Sutton, Burgess, Walker, Burgess, Gray.

        • Where is Nero Reagaan and penzo πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£ my good old souffths mate Russell Crower being a Souffs true blue fought tooth and nail with those two clowns 🀑🀑 and even wanted Burgess banned before the Preliminary final. And that was coming from a fan of the rabbits. But those other two rabbit clowns came up with the largest run a round story then tried to turn the tables on him. The truth always comes out in the end, Just ask that Newtown second rower Dawson

          Now Sam Burgess wife is blonde but not stupid πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£

        • The good old “Judge, Jury, Executionor”, and based purely on specious reasoning, unless of course you gentlemen know the couple intimately.

        • There’s a lot more evidence to suggest it (activity which brought game in to as much disrepute as anything else that’s gone down last 4 months) happened rather than it didn’t eelsalmighty. How do you equate it as specious aka superficial? It happened. It got out. He lied. Souths and the NRL didn’t act.

          And that’s just what was presented to Jo Public. And the quantity of that equates to more than 90% of the β€˜opinion’ that gets trundled out here, including by you. So how does it all go unpublishable when every other club is taking action?

        • The way I see it, and for the record I actually couldnt care less, because it’s none of my business, but:
          A. Sam wasn’t found guilty of anything, although there were a lot of media reports about this alegid nothing.
          B. He separates from his wife.
          Those 2 issues are then assumed to be related, and now A + B = C. I view that as specious reasoning.

        • I view it as ignorance and inconsistent application of player expectations under the banner of integrity of the NRL. All the evidence in the world that it came from NRL players account with multiple NRL players involved. Then, that it wasn’t reported to the NRL and a what looks and smells like a cover up tried to take place. And as I said all from a club which has a history with doing similar.

        • Your obession with me is very disturbing woodduck, this isn’t even a souths / easts story, I guess telling the truth about Easts really hurts hey, just can’t stop trying to convince everyone that Easts are the good guys and are great for rugby league when everyone knows the opposite, this must be really killing you hey, and has for madrooster, he clearly knows more than the ex copper lady from the NRL who sat in the investgations and found no evidence against Sam at all, just two low life Easts people who love kicking people when their down, Sam and his wife should be left alone to work out their problems, the only ignorant person here is madrooster and woodduck, at least eelsalmighty has a sensible take on all this.

        • Hey Penso, go back and read the comments on the “storm come back to the pack” story.
          You will find it very revealing.

        • Madrooster, so what exactly would you like to see done?
          Sam wasn’t found guilty, but assuming he was, do you want the club (their members, supporters etc) disadvantaged by a player’s personal/off field actions?
          I’d assume it’s not about Sam, but if it is, and based on the reasoning from above, surely he’s paying a very hefty price through his relationship situation, but do you still want more?
          As per above, I’m not really that interested in a player’s personal life, well not this sort of stuff anyway.

        • Pretty straight forward actually. All behaviour bringing game in to disrepute should be punished, as players have had done before. Not covered up, not down played, not excuses. Canberra Raiders would be the ones who should feel most agreived. They have always held their players accountable and watched others get away with assortment of minor and major behaviours. We see one club stand players down through investigation, where others continue to play. Between the Burgess brothers, the trip to Arizona and Walker/Gray drug night there’s a conclusion to be drawn about differentiation of penalties for players and ways club treat incidents.

          So step outside of the β€˜private life’ defence as it’s nothing to do it with it.

        • Thanks screamineagle for the heads up, didn’t get into that story on zero, don’t usually comment on other stories other than souths, but wow woodduck slipped up and basically admitted he is the Crower, i mean even his dictation is the same, but what about the excuses, man talk about insulting people’s intellegence, example- crowers take on souths chances is almost the exact comments that woodduck has said over time, still small things amuse small minds and now our site has to put up with these guys, we don’t deserve that hey!

        • So what of Sam Burgess face book account. The way I understand face book is a person has to sign into his account and this prevents anybody else from using it.

          Penz0 you can think I’m Crower all you like, it won’t bother me what you think, all your thoughts are back to front and upside down and are as like a twisted fart in a pickle bottle anyway. The only person you believe is your own silly stories that you love to make up. Its a mental illness when you believe your own lies.

          Like I said once before to you penz0, when Crower speaks he is a posh arse with a vocabulary that I have no idea what he is talking about some times, when talking to him face to face I’m always asking him to speak Australian lingo. What are trying to say that two odd couple friends like me and Russ cant be friends on here and friends in real life❓❔❓❔❓❔❓❔….but its ok for you and Reginald Reeagan to be friends away from this site and communicate with each other on facebook.πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜ or is that SouffthtillI die1970, or was it Ner0. penz0 you know his real name, spill the beans mate what is itπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

          Again penz0 it is of no concern to me at my age if you think I am Russell Crower or not. But I still will be posting on here and so will my soufffs mate and good friend Russell. πŸ’ͺπŸ‘΄πŸ‘‰πŸ“ Unfortunately Russ wont have much joy to write about this year with Bennett at the smelly old rabbit town.πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ€‘

        • Woodduck please get professional help, your schizophrenic nature where you argue with yourself is quite concerning, out of sympathy, i”ll back off knocking you on here, cause this would not be right with someone in your condition , hopefully you get the medical help required, quite sad.

        • “The way I understand face book is a person has to sign into his account and this prevents anybody else from using it.”
          The way I understand Zero Tackle is a person has to sign into his account and this prevents anybody else from using it.
          Yet wasn’t your defence on an earlier article that “RussCrower” posted as you?

        • I did eelalmighty and if you read my article explaining what happened then you will realise I had not signed out and my computer was still on when I rushed off to the dunny. Russ Crower who’s room is opposite mine looked on my lap top and he copied my statement onto his iPhone and posted my writings which had not been posted then posted it under his name from his account. Come on mate its not rocket science to understand English. πŸš€πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€ science.

        • I did read your explaination, and fully comprehended it, after all, and as you pointed out, it’s not rocket science. Whether I believe it, well that’s a seperate issue, but my point, re Burgess was, it’s possible for others to use your account, as you pointed out. Whether that’s because they hacked it, or you left it open, or whatever, the point is, it may not be you that is posting on your account.
          I don’t know why Sam was cleared of any involvement, and I don’t care, but it was investigated, its physically possible that he wasnt involved, and he was found not to be involved. Done, dusted, move on.

        • All is well penz0, but you never did try to answer my questions. Is that why you falsely persist in hanging onto your false accusations of me also being Crower❓❔❓❔❓❔❓❔. Stop avoiding the obvious and doing what you are good at which is the old run around and change the subject tactic.πŸ€‘πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ’ͺπŸ‘΄πŸ‘

          Like I said before. How much did soufffs pay of the lady to all of a sudden go quite so Burgess could play in the game that tried to get Soufffs into the grand final❓❓❔❓❔❓ Alas my silly silly penz0 rival. souffths failed to make the grand final even with a massive pay off. BUT his wife did not fall for the lies, you no the same ones which you make up to protect Sam
          And what of the so called Burgess is going to sue the Easts lady who made the complaintβ“β”β“β”β“πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜, just more garbage you made up and nothing ever was heard of that story again as it was all swept under the carpet to protect souffths sydney latest one million dollar man, penz0πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    • You can hardly put all the blame on the club for the actions of an individual. If that were the case parra would be kicked out of the comp for haynes actions. It would be like sending your parents to prison for a crime you had committed.

  2. Why all this criticism calling the Tigers a grub club.? At least they have the same salary cap as most other Sydney clubs (except one which appears to have an unlimited cap). They aren’t proped up by money from the instigator of the Super League war like some interstate clubs. They haven’t poached other clubs contracted coaches and there coaches don’t seem to have been involved with illegal substances and breaking NRL sanctions on coaches contacting club employees while being banned.

    Look elsewhere for grub clubs. There are plenty of them but the Tigers are well down the list.

        • Not as ironic as a supporter of a team factually done for salary cap breaches (aka CHEATING) missing the underlining notion of my statement.

          So answer must be Manly. Yes they are SALARY CAP CHEATS!

    • β€œWhy all this criticism calling the Tigers a grub club.? At least they have the same salary cap as most other Sydney clubs (except one which appears to have an unlimited cap)”

      A typical bitter comment from somebody that supports a pathetic failing club, I bet your sick of being a bottom feeder? I’ll tell you why your stain is a bottom feeder, because somebody at your joke of a merged club thought it would be a good idea to bring back benchy and Farah. Tigers will NEVER win a comp again

      • Every player that plays for the tigpies is complete garbage. I would be surprised if they have 1 rep player

  3. Correct JTG1231, don’t understand how you can blame the club. Toddy123 and Kev should be on the NRL board with their kneejerk reactions and Toddy can’t spell anyway.

  4. It may well turn out to be a little bonus for the Tigers.
    They need to free up cap space (not that he’d be on big bucks), and I think it’s fair to say Chee Kam isn’t the biggest (potential) loss from their squad, if he is found guilty.

  5. Hasn’t Chee Kam been in strife before, I can’t recall? As for you blokes/guys’ wanting to know the ins and outs of a couples relationship go read womans weekly and sit around with your wife or husband over a cup of tea and talk gossip there.

  6. Expect to see Easffs sign statement up after being released by the Tigers. No effect on their cap either i reckon.

    That was my first orgasm. It’s what planets are made of.

    • So what are you saying you bunged on a gangbang or something back in the 1970’s🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑

    • Miss rabbitwithdudzon, your actions indicate you may have been a Sam(antha) Burgess like Woody suggested, within the decade of the 1970’s An era of freebie complimentary chargeless love. Your name suggests you participated in this risky Bunny business, with 12. Hence requesting to be known as, rabbit with a dozen, yet my splendid math equates, you named thirteen. May I ask if these Promiscuousacts encounters occurred within a Sandman of a Falcon Panel Van

  8. So peeved I spelt John O’Neill’s name wrong. That’s like calling that verbose fellow WoodSook, isn’t it?

  9. Woow so much hate for the Tigers .. a struggling club with players being paid the proper amount to their salary cap .. This Farah payment to become an ambassador of the game when he retires is part of his current salary .. bulldust .. the Rorters did the same thing with Minnicello (sp?) .. but you know what the NRL did .. they said no worries don’t worry about that Rorters we’ll cover the cost of Minnicello for you .. double standards .. !! If the NRL ban Michael Chee-Kam for this .. the back lash will come in fast and furious .. why didn’t the NRL ban Matt Lodge for what he did in the USA .. the guy should in jail for christ sake. The let’s have a look at Greg Inglis .. speeding and drink driving .. could have killed someone if not himself .. NRL said bad boy .. take a few weeks off and you lose the Aussie Captaincy .. wow. Mr Terdburg should have a good long hard look at himself .. he’s probably on the take with the Rorters .. sign Cronk, Tedesco, Crichton, Ryan Hall from the ESL and already have Cordner all player nearly receiving a million dollars a season .. and the NRL think their under the sombrero cap .. wake up to your NRL .. and do something about making the competition even for all clubs before you start losing spectators and supporters .. !! The NRL competition is a joke at the moment, run by a terdburgler.

    • oh shut up you fool, You sound like one of those idiot souffs suporters when you start attacking the Roosters cap. Two players on a mullion not the others Hoe could you think Hall ia winger at the near end of his career is on a mil. Either your a typical souffths nitwit or just a full blown nutterπŸ’ͺπŸ“πŸ‘‰πŸ₯œπŸ₯œπŸ₯œπŸ₯œπŸ₯œπŸ₯œer

  10. Would it be wrong to put all speculation and arguments to rest by making players salaries and TPA public knowledge. Or too invasive?
