While we are talking about relevance, what's the big deal about Dimi being a Cypriot?

And i couldn't give a rats about Dimi, or Carlton, or Melb, or Essendon to be honest.  i just don't think the issues are connected.

What's happened at the Storm is huge.  An enormous story with startling outcomes.  people could go to jail over this.

The comparisons with the AFL aren't valid.

Storm might not survive this.  Players will walk for better contracts who were on funny money.  Basically they are playing for nothing for the rest of the year because they can't earn points.

I dunno, they were only over $300k per year over the last 5 years, it's not that much money. I think the majority of the salary cap breaches were 3rd party payments and payments to player managers.

I don't know about jail time, but you'd think that the Storm would have grounds to sue Waldron for some form of corporate fraud.

They have been presenting a fraudulent document to the auditors.  It's a crime.  Watch this space!

as long as taxes are paid and there is no cash in hand so to speak, i dont think they can go to jail for fraud

sure they lied, they broke the rules but have they broken the law, dont think so, unless of taxes were not paid and earnings declared to the ato
