Just a rant 'cause I'm so OUTRAGED right now.

Juanita, (of ABC News) how can you have just read the line at the beginning of the news "The NRL is facing possibly its biggest scandal, the breaching of the salary cap by the Melbourne Storm."?? I trust you! You read me the news every evening when I can manage it. And now this!

Argh! and a guy just said "bigger than sex scandals" ARGH! There are sex scandals, and then there is a widespread culture of acceptance of gang-rape.

How is something about overpaid sportspeople being more overpaid bigger than the scandal of the violence that is condoned from the players, often directed toward women?

I should say, this is perhaps upsetting me so much because I do actually follow League, and I want it to be as good as it can be. Not a bastion of violence and misogyny.

Sadly, this probably *is* the biggest scandal. Gang rape? Pah, just those crazy wimmins talking crazy!

Unfortunately you're probably right, which frankly makes me want to kick something.

What I also don't like is how the League seems to be taking far more serious disciplinary action over this than they did over anything to do with violence or rape.
