You would be very naive if you believed approaches weren’t made to players all the time regardless of whatever ‘rule’ the NRL had in place…
Well I for one firmly believe players are only ever approached under the existing rules, and the NRL’s guidelines are firmly upheld by player managers.
I also believe that all tradies declare 100% of cash jobs to the tax man.
I also believe that 100% of politicians are more interested in social development and representing the needs of their electorate than re-election.
I also believe that deelgates of both FIFA and the IOC have only the best interests of their sports in mind and there are never any under-table deals to make things happen.
