Even more salary cap problems for the Sharks

Recommended Posts

So the shenanigans at Cronulla run deeper than was self reported. 

Sharks have got used to these and other problems and appear to think that all will turn out in the wash.

They are appealing the recent penalties just as the likelihood of more surface.

Johnson meantime seems to feel sure of his place in the squad.

Maybe this time Cronulla will get a bigger shock than they think.

What do you reckon - a bigger fine spread out over a number of seasons. 

Or maybe as firm a stance taken against them as was taken against Melbourne.

How about their 2016 Premiership titlke - is that safe?

Sharks have a sponsor for this season " Ace Gutters" ( I bet you all think i'm making this up because isn't it an apt name). Nope being widely mentioned on a sharks forum. They were to be a shorts sponsor but have progressed to s a shirt sponsor. Reported that the owner is a fan.

The club's still at Cronulla? I thought they would have been forced to relocate by now.

Would be funny if the new sponsor hired Flanagan.

NRL360 host Paul Kent has revealed his doubts over the legitimacy of Cronulla’s 2016 premiership triumph, after the club were recently penalised for salary cap issues.

Sharks CEO Barry Russell self-reported the club to the NRL after years of cap breaches, with the first instance coming back in 2013.

Cronulla were subsequently fined and coach Shane Flanagan was deregistered indefinitely following the investigation, and while the NRL have repeatedly stated the breaches did not occur during the 2016 season, Kent simply doesn’t believe them.

They did cheat the year they won the premiership,” Kent said of Fox League’s NRL360 on Tuesday night.

“The NRL were very deliberate in their phrasing when asked several times last week in off-the-record conversations, when they had an off-the-record media briefing, and then publicly later when they stipulated that when Cronulla won the competition they were under the salary cap on the day.

“But they were under the cap because of this. They were cheating, and those undisclosed monetary amounts were not enough, given they were already paying unders for everyone at the club, to get them over the cap.

“But they were systematically cheating that year.

“It stepped up a gear in 2017, the year after the premiership. That’s when they formed a separate company with the sole intention of manufacturing third-party sponsorships for the club.”

Cronulla have been hit with a $353,000 salary cap penalty for both seasons 2019 and 2020, and will need to release a player before round one in order to be cap compliant for the upcoming season.

Kent seems to me that type of mouthpiece journo who’s as much about self publicity as anything , and they give him a platform to do it .
