NRL, Bulldogs, looking at it the wrong way!

The league kept quiet over the "abuse claim". "Abuse claim"!

What about Pack Rape Claim? Gang Bang Parties? What about, abduction, molestation, violation, attack, assaults. Those words that others are branded with in the face of a vicious attack.


Not bad for a public 'Bun' if you ask us! Anyone would think we are being raped. Raped of our morals and ethics by the corporate media and the State!

After all one player is accused of "taking the victim home without consent of the NRL". What a crime! Sinister in fact! She wasn't kidnapped or anything she was just going to a party? A gang bang party?

So no rape in this case just a matter of taking a girl back in contravention of an agreement with the NRL?

National Rugby League chief executive David Gallop yesterday admitted controversy surrounding the Bulldogs had damaged the game and called on all players to behave like role models. "I am calling on our clubs and players ... to focus on their responsibilities in football and the community," he said.

A 20-year-old woman has claimed she was raped by a group of Bulldogs players at Coffs Harbour's Pacific Bay Resort in the early hours of February 22 2004.

The first of up to eight players from the Bulldogs club will be interviewed by detectives at one of two police stations in south-western Sydney tomorrow, as police intensify investigations into sexual assault allegations by a 20-year-old Coffs Harbour woman.

At the same time, the players will be asked to give a buccal swab, a sample of their saliva on a cotton bud stick, for comparison DNA testing. Six detectives from Coffs Harbour flew to Sydney yesterday to meet police investigating the allegations.

Members of the strike force met briefly at the Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills, bringing with them statements and evidence collected since the woman made the allegations of having been sexually assaulted at the Pacific Bay Resort on February 22.

The commander of Strike Force McGuigon, Detective Inspector Jason Breton, is expected to give a more comprehensive briefing today to State Crime Command officers who are joining the investigation.

WARNING: Flashback to FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 6 2002

New South Wales police have issued a warning to women after the gang rape of a girl in Sydney's south-west. Police say the 16-year-old was forced into the grounds of Birrong Boys High School by three men yesterday afternoon, before being sexually assaulted.

The men are believed to be about 18 years old. Detective Inspector Kim McKay has urged women in the area to be cautious.

"We are warning young women who are travelling on their own to be on the lookout for offenders and we encourage people to walk in pairs and make sure people know where you are at all times," she said.

Judge names gang rapists

BUT this is a different class of offender under the heading 'football stars' or special consideration for corporate dollars, and State income.

These offenders aren't walking the streets they are being cheered at a football game on the weekend in front of their fans.

The NRL is under pressure to confront clubs and players about their attitude to women following a Bulldogs player telling The Sun-Herald about group sex and wild parties. Mr Gallop said yesterday he was horrified to read the player's allegations.

HAVE POLICE ISSUED A WARNING TO YOUNG WOMEN WHO ARE CONTEMPLATING GOING TO FOOTBALL PARTIES ON THEIR OWN AND TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR OFFENDERS DISGUISED AS HEROES?
