Wake us when it’s all over.
For anyone out there who cares (we don’t), SMH today reported that the Sea Eagles were refusing to cooperate with NRL investigators, specifically by not handing over privately owned laptops and mobile devices.
Shortly thereafter, the Sea Eagles released their own statement, saying that “contrary to reports today, the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles wish to advise that the club is complying with all directions and notifications provided under the current Salary Cap Investigation being conducted by the NRL Integrity Unit”.
To be clear to our readers, we’re not even remotely interested in reading or reporting on the details of an investigation that may yet reveal nothing; about a team everybody else hates anyway.
With seven weeks remaining until the finals, we find the unsourced speculation about the competitive integrity of a competition we’re deeply invested in, to be about as interesting as watching the Bulldogs try to play attacking football.
So from here an out, you can expect The Obstruction Rule to continue to be a “Sea Eagles salary cap controversy”-free zone, until there’s some actual news to report on.
