Bulldogs simply not the best!


$500,000 fine not empathy!

THE TELEGRAPH: NRL last night fined the Bulldogs $500,000 for bringing the game into disrepute over the Coffs Harbour sex affair.


It came less than 24 hours after police declined to lay charges against players over sexual assault allegations made by a young woman in the seaside resort town on February 22.

GKCNN: Diversionary tactics by the NRL and do you really think 500,000 will put pressure on the Bulldogs? I don't think so!

TELEGRAPH: The NRL imposed an immediate penalty of $150,000, with $350,000 suspended, provided the club and the players face no serious off-field misconduct issues before the end of 2006.

GKCNN: But to be charged or not to be charged in a court of law that is the question for column "A".

To be found guilty or not guilty that is the question for column "B"


In the grand scheme of things take this scenario and present it to police, who have and obligation to report crime to the court.

Bulldogs: Breaking the news gently

No problem identifying her demeanour as a rape victim after the event? No problem expecting that identifying the offenders may have been difficult at the time? No problem doing a swab and finding out what DNA entered her body? No problem looking at the marks on her body where she was bruised or cut? But a problem with the accounts of others that say the victim's story just doesn't add up?

Just add that to the melting pot!

If I may add to the above scenario, I take it that in the grand scheme of things, as well, that the matter would normally be able to be judged in a court of law, where the matter was, in relation to a victim or an alleged offender.

Just add that to the melting pot!

GKCNN understands the DPP's main area of concern is the alleged victim's version of events and whether it would withstand sustained attack under cross-examination.

What about the fact with respect your DPP that the victim cannot seek a judgement in a criminal court because the victim cannot reach out to the court to give her version of events.

Just add that to the melting pot!

Bob Carr: She can take up the matter with a civil court for damages.

Ask Bob about Bilal Skafe's 55 years for gang rape (setting an example) for column "A" whom don't get charged or named. Not civil at all Bob. What has changed here? Your corporate interests? So how do column "A" set examples Bob?

Just add that to the melting pot!

The Opposition: Nothing!

They normally want to stamp on the offender's head but not this time, why? Mr Brogden what has changed here? Your corporate interests?

Just add that to the melting pot!

Now what about the evidence that is surrendered by examination and cross-examination of the alleged gang rapists? How would they perform in the witness box your DPP? Under oath? Also how would those Bulldogs executives perform under oath? You know the ones that resigned!

Just add that to the melting pot!

But did police themselves convince the victim and the DPP that she would fail under cross-examination and was this case investigated properly? I don't think so!

Just add that to the melting pot!

Perhaps we can now get police to investigate themselves to find out whether there has been any cover-up. Surely the girl was raped.

Allegedly some of the woman's claims have been called into question by other independent witnesses, who give contrary versions. Like CH 10's news reporters! Go find the dog that takes the bone and ignore anyone else who would paint the picture that describes the event.

Did the police seek and rely on negative statements to prove their case? I think so!

Just add that to the melting pot!

Now we are all gathered here in the court room your Worship where we have a victim who has been gang raped by some people and we know where the event took place and we also know about some of the people who were there and we also know that some of the Bulldogs officials know what happened.

With the greatest respect your Worship I would like to call?????????????.

To give evidence on oath your Worship about the gang rape of Ms Y.

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: In other developments yesterday:

THE policeman in charge of the Bulldogs investigation admitted there was physical evidence of rape; QUESTIONS were raised over why three club stalwarts lost their jobs in the wake of the affair; WIVES and girlfriends of players were being counselled to deal with the affair's aftermath; and

BULLDOGS chief executive officer Malcolm Noad said any player who had behaved inappropriately in Coffs Harbour would be punished within the next 14 days.

The fine follows an NRL board decision last month to impose a suspended four competition point penalty on the club for crowd violence.

If the Bulldogs are found guilty of further breaches before 2006 the $350,000 fine would be in addition to any penalty that breach would normally attract.

As NRL chief executive David Gallop was announcing the fine, the Bulldogs board was meeting at Belmore to consider imposing its own penalties on players for breaching the club's code of behaviour.

There won't be a decision for two weeks but it is understood six players will be fined for participating in consensual sex with a woman on the Wednesday night before the alleged misbehaviour, which occurred the following Sunday morning.

Players will also be asked to account for other questionable behaviour, including comments made to the media and inappropriate dress when attending a police station.

Directors are likely to impose minimum fines of $10,000 on each player and it's not out of the question that one player might have his contract terminated.

After imposing the $500,000 fine, Gallop confirmed the Bulldogs had lodged a submission with the league against the suspended four-point penalty for crowd violence.

That penalty was imposed by the board when Malcolm Noad, now the Bulldogs CEO, was chairman of the NRL.

"We firmly believe there needs to be some incentive to ensure that football is a safe place for families to go," Gallop said.

"With that in mind we are considering the Bulldogs' submission on the four-point suspended penalty."

Gallop said the $500,000 fine in no way related to the allegations of sexual assault investigated by police.

"The NRL supports the findings of the police and asks that the public respect that this matter has been fully investigated and that no charges have been found in relation to the sexual assault," Gallop said.

"I have sympathy for the players, their families, officials, former officials, everyone involved. [?]

"Still, the behaviour of some club representatives outside of the central allegation remains disturbing and demands sanction."

The issues that led to the fine were:

THE club's failure to enforce behaviour codes for what was a promotional tour in Coffs Harbour; THE behaviour of the players at the club's Belmore training sessions; and STATEMENTS made in the media by players.

By CINDY WHAT? Disparity Editor 29 April 04

BILL HARRIGUN: It may be okay for the NRL and Rugby League to bypass empathy for money but in the wider community that's simply not the best and definitely not better than anyone, anyone I've met. Money, Money, Money, must be funny in a rich mans world! Who said that?




Why the Bulldogs rape case failed?
The moment when corporate interests start to appear in the victims version of events. It is even worse when the alleged offender's aren't named and much of the case hinges on the trauma caused to the victim.

Black Knight - Long way to go home
In line with the current climate of police corruption and the demise of the reform unit set up by Wood, these facts ought to have been a good reason to leave Moroney out of the package as Commissioner.

I am disturbed by Governments 'actions' in relation to shuffling the police service. Clive Small seconded into Parliament like a cocky in a perch. A breach of the fundamental Separation of Powers Doctrine does not in my view allow the thought of intervening, planning, or shuffling to stack the deck of our police service. The one that suppose to be autonomous according to Lord Denning. Where the Parliamentary Secretary can ask the commissioner of police to 'report' then sack him if he is not satisfied with such report.

Australia's Political Underworld...& their enforcers
The promotion of law and order means money to big business. Profits from insurance, security fixtures, patrol services and the like can only continue to grow if the perceived threat of uncontrollable crime wave escalates. In the past few months there have been many examples of the true nature of our blood thirsty politicians and their sinister attempts to spoon-feed a not so gullible public with their repetitious rhetoric.

Who is telling the truth? Well I guess Dr. Ed. Chadbourne or Mr. Peter Ryan may have the answer to that. Dr. Chadbourne sacked by Peter Ryan and more specifically in my view because he elected deputy commissioners Dave Madden and Andrew Scipione as the best men in the service in relation to his qualifications to make a recommendation in his capacity as human resources.That is if you believe that a Dr. can be corrupted.

What is happening between the Police Service and politics is quite extraordinary at the moment. If stand over tactics don't work tell half the truth honestly and follow the example of sheep. Another word for it is sleaze, yeah. Another word for it is workplace harassment. Another word for it is bribing a Police Officer. Another word for it is misleading Parliament.

Tele Tales
Most people I know don't buy the Daily Telegraph. Why? Because of the lies and propaganda purported by them.

Lord Denning
Interesting how a member of the Police Board Mr. Tim Priest would hold grave fears for his safety from dangerous senior police but fails to name them or have them sacked. Rather Priest resigns as if he had no powers. Could that mean what he was saying is that the Governments are also corrupt?

Clive Small is Bob Carr's choice for the new Police Commissioner. It could only be the case considering his, Small's special appointment into Parliament House. Small who suffers from the little person syndrome is the ideal bend over boy who gets shuffled through his corrupt actions. Rolling the legal system for him after the fact, just like his predecessor Roger the dodger Rogerson.

Black Nexus
The Separation of Powers Doctrine is nowcontaminated witharangeofcolours, now leaving us with a black shirt on a once blue bridge that crossed that thin blue line. The 'Amery and Woodham show'.

Same boat
The Premier, Bob Carr, relies on a militia. A gang of bikies and our Police Service, to show all of us he is no murderer. He should be taken to the task along with his partners in crime like Clive Small to account for those people who like my self have been maliciously assaulted and who have complained, without any service and those who cannot speak for themselves who were murdered, like Terry Falconer. Terry murdered in custody.
