Okunbor and Harawira-Naera sacked

Recommended Posts

Their stupid behaviour has cost them dear. It has cost their club a huge amount of sponsorship money. The girls have had to live with a lot of unpleasant and unwanted response to this. Yes they are young men and a liable to make mistakes. This is such though that an example has to be made of them to be a warning to others in the future.

Yes they were the idiots and got their cumuppence , but ‘ the girls ‘ made their choices to . No one is coming out of this smelling of roses , it’s a pretty sordid episode

Agreed

Rightly so. Idiots.

Would you want em at your club.

They may have been foolish but in the long list of transgressions that players have done in recent years, this is pretty low down the list. They didn’t do anything illegal, violent or dangerous (like drink driving). I would have no issue if my club signed them

The NRL seems riddled with inconsistencies in terms of its quasi-judicial stance . I probably mean Greenberg by that . We’ve seen it in the stand down policy and general disciplinary sanctions . Some people get stricter punishments than others , and it seems fairly ad hoc at times . They can look like a kangaroo court at times , no pun intended . There are guys who’ve committed criminal , illegal and very very unsavoury acts and are playing ( quite a lot , it’s a long list ) .This case  is a moral aberration not a rule of law . At times it’s very hard to see the consistency of logic and justice in the disciplinary process there. Personally I’d say these guys were stupid , morally wrong , and deserve a club or league punishment but this sanction seems excessive and out of kilter with instances we’ve seen before . I think throwing these guys on the scrap heap if that happens by making them seem toxic to other clubs  is ridiculous

Couldn’t agree more

I can’t see Greenberg lasting very long after this has taken its course. He’s not handled things well during his tenure. This last week in particular has shown him up. He’s shuffled his position with regards to his chosen pay cut and has been shown to be in charge of an NRL administration that appears to be poorly run. He preaches prudence and strict control to the clubs and their players while overseeing what appears to be a fast flowing spending spree for his colleagues and himself.
