Huge controversy this week is the Melbourne Storm Rugby League Football Club covertly paying its players more than they are allowed.
They've had two sets of books. It's like every second restaurant that has two tills. It's called cheating.
What the Storm RFC have done is commit the 11th commandment - 'Thou shalt not be caught.' On the field cheating is OK as long as you don't get caught. If you do get caught all it means is a free kick to the other side. Then it's forgotten.
The enormity of the over-payments scandal is over powering: $1.7m over 5 years and 25 players. Work it out, they paid their players a bit over $13,000 every year for 5 years. It's peanuts. What are these people going on about? It's only footb for chrissakes.
Give the other teams a free kick and get on with it.
(I suspect all the other clubs are getting free kicks as well; free cars, free houses, free trips, free lunches, free massages ...) They just know their commandments better!
So here we have 13 players in need of a rest being watched by 25,000 people in need of some exercise. It's a game.
- Storm memberships have sky-rocketed this week.
- The team handed out a thrashing to the Waratahs, 40:6
On the track
Out with the boys this morning. A steadily improving run. Achilles getting better.
In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and at what ever vocation you set your mind to, aim to earn as much money as you can - without cheating anyone.
