There’s been no suggestion that anyone in the video was unaware they were being filmed. You are clutching at straws.
If there was no issue it would not be in the hands of the integrity unit and Napa would not be seeking legal representation.

Not sure how you would know, what is going on with the other person in the video at this point, but that persons privacy has been violated even if aware of the video being taken,, sharing publically is an issue, without consent.

Aside from that Napa himself would not consent to these videos being shared and so that in itself requires investigation.
The only way Napa can be in any trouble would be if he shared it without her consent, which is a stretch. Why would a player leak their own sex tape. That’s pretty dumb, even for an NRL player. If either of them are going to release it, it’s more likely her, seeing as how you can’t see her face. Revenge porn is a big thing atm. But she could be totally innocent to, and a third party could have gotten their hands on it, which would mean there is no story (no story meaning no scandal of an NRL player doing anything wrong)
That may be the case but you only find that out by investigating and until they do that, all involved will be under some level of suspicion, and or may be even victims.

Regardless of the outcome who knows how the NRL view it, in terms of how it impacts on the image of the game. They seem to think they have some ownership over the players private lives when they are "exposed" to the public, so nothing would surprise me anymore.
This is what I'm genuinely interested in, what action the NRL will take.

Yes Napa's a victim in all this - forget the boneheaded and foolish behaviour, Telltails is correct it is actually illegal to share images/videos of a sexually graphic or explicit nature without that person's consent and can lead to jail time - however it's a lot worse than Carney's bubbler incident and heaps more embarrassing than Pearce's Australia Day stunt.

No conviction for drink-driver Greg Inglis
By AAP
10:32am Jan 14, 2019

NRL star Greg Inglis has been placed on a good behaviour bond but escaped conviction after he was caught drink driving and speeding on the way home from a regional NSW rugby league tournament.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs captain had been named skipper of the national team just hours before he was caught driving 99km/h in an 80 km/h zone on the outskirts of Lithgow on October 1, 2018.

Inglis pleaded guilty to drink driving in November and on Monday NSW's chief magistrate Graeme Henson granted Inglis an 18-month conditional release order, noting his loss of the captaincy, driving and playing suspensions, and substantial charity work.

Inglis blew over the legal limit on his way back to Sydney after attending the Koori Knockout in Dubbo.

Just balancing the ledger a little below is a nice story about a former footballer by Roy Masters. This guy wasn't a world beater and didn't make first grade but it's a nice story well written by Roy Master. A few more senior forum members who followed Wests in the past might even remember this guy.

Vale Steve Tamone: An unsung rugby league role model

By Roy Masters

No-one writes in the newspaper about former lower-grade footballers who die too young, unless it’s a case of "Bert Kelly, 60, who played three reserve grade games for Parramatta in the early 1980s, was yesterday charged with three counts of burglary...”

Understandably, it’s the champions - such as Arthur Beetson and Steve Folkes, both former internationals who died of heart attacks while riding their bikes - who receive the publicity.

So, when Steve Tamone, 63, a former lower-grade player with Western Suburbs in the late 70s, died of a suspected heart attack on January 5 after cycling, it needs to be a story with a difference to make it in the media.

Tamone was one of the smallest front-row forwards to play in the Sydney rugby league grade competition. He was a member of the Magpies Under-23 squad which won the major and minor premierships in 1977 and backed up the following year when Wests were beaten in the grand final by Penrith.

His brother-in-law, Warren Boland, who captained Wests first grade team from the wing in 1980, remembers the closing seconds of that 1978 Under-23 game, a moment that symbolised a life of determination cut short: “I was sitting in the MA Noble Stand directly in front when Steve, who was smaller than me, ran into a small gap near the goalposts. He was going to score under the black dot and win the grand final but a Penrith player stopped him, inches short of the line.”

Tamone later captained Macquarie University’s league team and formed a social touch football club, named after Vince Farrar, the former English front-rower/hooker who played a season for the Sharks in 1974, scoring one try and represented England in one test and Great Britain in another.
Vince, who died in 2017, aged 70, had neither the looks nor the playing statistics to be invited onto the annual “Rugby League New Faces” TV talent show.

He would never have been given a role in a Tina Turner commercial (although Cronulla’s Gavin Miller was) but Vince’s dogged endurance appealed to Tamone’s university mates.

Tamone became a successful project manager, building shopping centres and hospitals in Sydney and on the NSW Central Coast.

His father had died early, so Steve opted to retire aged 60 and take consultancy work, including the project to build a vertical high school at Parramatta.

He also volunteered for the Vincent de Paul Society, visiting the hospitalised.

Yet he needed to do more, particularly as a role model. Of Italian heritage, he followed his father Frank’s love of gardening to Emu Plains where men who had been before the courts worked out their community orders on a large market garden.
According to Boland, “A lot of the guys would disappear by morning tea and then, after lunchtime, Steve was one of the few left, planting tomatoes, pulling up carrots.

“It was important for him to demonstrate to anyone who stayed that hard work has its own reward. He could have been earning a couple of grand a day as a project manager.”

Boland and Tamone, who had both lived in the same suburb and attended the same school, were Balmain juniors in an era where each Sydney club was restricted to 13 imports. However, the NSWRL’s leaders had paved the way for future mergers by pairing clubs, meaning juniors of Wests and Balmain were deemed locals.

So, the future brothers-in-law were pioneers of what became the NRL’s Wests Tigers and help explain why the relationship endures.

Tamone married Boland’s sister Louise and they had four children. Warren, the former ABC broadcaster, now lives in Brisbane but the two families spent a joyful Christmas together in Sydney.

Steve did complain for a few days about stomach pains, but typical of former footballers, opted to “cycle it out” with his mates.

It was a Saturday morning when he died. Louise spent the day in an adrenaline rush, contacting family, friends, funeral homes.

That night, as she prepared for bed, she collapsed and was rushed to hospital.

Boland says doctors have told the family there is a recognised medical condition named “Broken Heart Syndrome,” a circumstance where the heart fills with activity, then drains with grief.

Louise will be well enough to attend the funeral Tuesday at St Gerard Majella Church, Carlingford at 10.30am and the Magpies ex-players will present her with a memorial sash before the service.

In an off-season horribilus for rugby league, Steve’s story is an antidote to the regular reports of sexual assault and lurid videos. He brought grace to the game at a time others deliver disgrace.

The NRL should but out. Just like they should have with the Pearce video. Their involvement encourages lowlifes who seek some type of revenge to continue to publicise these videos.
We dont need to know what these players do in their private lives, nor are we entitled to unless they break the law.

I absolutely agree, as it's not just a criminal procedure but has also impacted Dylan Napa's livelihood. I actually feel for Dylan Napa and can't even think what this is doing to his mental wellbeing. IDK what would even motivate a person to do such a horrid thing.

Now there’s a video doing the rounds of Corey Norman handing some bloke a plate with cocaine on it. What a moron.
Kurtley beale seems to be in the video as well.

Napa in crisis talks with lawyers as third sex tape emerges

A third sex tape allegedly involving Bulldogs prop Dylan Napa is being circulated on social media amid claims the lurid videos were part of a private WhatsApp group involving as many as 25 other players.

The latest Napa video came to light as potentially damaging footage of two other star footballers emerged, with Dragons recruit Corey Norman and Wallabies star Kurtley Beale laughing in the presence of a man snorting a line of white powder. It is not clear when it was filmed.

Napa and his manager, Steve Gillis, met with lawyers in the city on Monday in a desperate bid to come up with a strategy to stop the slow leak of explicit videos into the public domain.

In what is looking increasingly like a revenge porn situation, the latest Napa video allegedly shows him engaging in a consensual sex act with a woman while referring to himself as “Big Papi” — the same name he is heard to call himself in the first video.

In the second Napa video, which was circulated on Saturday, the Queensland forward bizarrely performs sexual acts on himself while another former teammate shadow boxes in the corner.
The Herald has been told the Napa videos were posted “four to five years” ago on a private WhatsApp group involving other players.

Napa played 121 matches for the Roosters from 2013-18, including last year’s grand final win over the Melbourne Storm, before being moved on during the off-season to the Bulldogs. They have never said it publicly, but the Roosters had been concerned for some time about Napa’s loose off-field behaviour.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are in the foetal position.
They were just starting to placate angry sponsors and members following the club’s Mad Monday shenanigans in which players were photographed, by News Corp, standing on tables in the nude while singing Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline.

Now chief executive Andrew Hill faces a fresh crisis involving a new signing who is yet to play a match.
Napa has told the Bulldogs he knows who took the videos but won’t divulge the person’s identity.
It’s been speculated that a former teammate is responsible for releasing the videos, although Napa hasn’t confirmed that with the Bulldogs.

One NRL fansite has been openly boasting on its Facebook page about releasing more videos while players on the WhatsApp group are nervous that damning videos and images of themselves could be leaked publicly.
The Roosters say none of their current squad are involved in the scandal.

While Napa’s lawyers have spoken to NSW Police about the matter, no formal investigation is underway.
Federal revenge porn laws involving the non-consensual release of intimate images were strengthened in August last year. Those found guilty of the offence face a maximum jail sentence of seven years. Under NSW law, they face three years.

While Napa appears on one hand to be the victim of a covert plot to trash his reputation, his utter stupidity in being filmed in the first place could still see him heavily sanctioned by the club or the NRL.

Under the NRL’s code of conduct, players are forbidden from uploading or distributing “obscene or sexually explicit” material on social media. What could limit any possible sanction is that the audience that sees it is limited.

Napa’s former Roosters teammate, Mitchell Pearce, was banned for eight matches and fined $125,000 for his infamous drunken encounter on Australia Day in which he jokingly had simulated sex with a poodle.

The NRL came down hard on Pearce because of the widespread coverage the incident - and video - received around the world. Because he wasn't naked, it could be broadcast.

The three videos involving Napa are so sexually explicit they simply can’t be shown. It’s a similar situation to the one involving former Parramatta star Norman, who in 2016 was filmed having consensual sex with a woman.

Either way, the so-called “Big Papi Tapes” are yet another off-field distraction for a code that continues to lurch from one crisis to the next.

Many fans will argue there’s nothing to see here. It was consensual. It was private. Whoever released the video on social media is a grub. But we’re not talking about “Big Papi” if he’s not starring in his own homemade videos in the first place.

In 2017, during collective bargaining agreement negotiations, the Rugby League Players Association demanded a 29 per cent share of total game revenue because it wanted to be genuine “partners” in the game.

The RLPA insisted it would clean up player misbehaviour because their actions would directly hurt their back pockets.
We humbly ask the RLPA: how's that going for you?

A small fraction of the game's 500-or-so players didn’t get the memo. An off-season of players being charged with assaulting women both sexually and physically, assaulting cab drivers, being banned from licensed premises for fighting, highlights that in bold type.

On Monday, South Sydney star Greg Inglis was placed on a good behaviour bond but escaped conviction after he was caught drink driving and speeding on the outskirts of Lithgow the day after playing at the Koori Knockout in Dubbo on October 1.
It emerged in court that Inglis had received a character reference from NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg, something that bemused other clubs who felt that support crossed the line.

Greenberg couldn't be contacted on Monday because he's still on holidays. ARL chairman Peter Beattie was tweeting from the south coast of South America, otherwise known as the "end of the world", which is where his code will end up if players don't start keeping their mobile phones and other accessories in their pants.

This is what really annoys me. Our club do the wrong thing and Greenberg hits us with a savage, over the top penalty, ruining a mans career.
Inglis displays extreme poor judgement, putting the lives of motorists at risk and Greenberg gives him a reference. WHERE IS THE CONSISTENCY IN LEADERSHIP YOU DRIBBLING, INCOMPETENT, CORRUPT GRUB??!!

Wonder if the NRL CEO Greenturd will write a character reference for MCK? Or does one have to be a salary cap cheat first?

It's not favouritism though, there's no bias. it's just that Todd knows Greg and thinks he is a top bloke. So because Greg is a top bloke, who has done well for the NRL, Todd will give him a reference. And someone like MCK will not get one. But it's not favouritism though, that's just big business.

There’s no problem TT. We’ve got Peter Beattie to keep everyone honest. He didn’t give Inglis a reference as he’d never heard of him!

I often wonder why it seems ok to discriminate against redheads. Especially when they are suggested to be inferior or different to the redt of us.

Replace ranga with black or muslim in those posts above and the reactions and reply's would be fierce.

Not having a go at you guys and no im not a redhead and yes i have joked around about gingers and bloodnuts and all that. But it does go to show there is very little balance with discrimination these days.

Like someone who posted earlier about Bolton. If it was reversed and a woman touched a guys thigh and he made a police complaint, he would be somewhat ridiculed for it.

Sorry but the redhead thing just always makes me think about whats considered ok and a laugh in comparison to what most consider discrimination or racism today.
It is a pity, all this PC rubbish. For me, having a joke with your mates at each other is part of Aussie culture. At school we used to have a dig at each other, always finding something to have a laugh at. Red hair, tall, short, fat, skinny... not bullying but in good humour.
Those days are long gone - its not the Australia I grew up in - where you could have a go at your mates or at the pub - sometimes it went over the top and a few fights would break out. Short stoush then back to the bar and have a laugh over a few beers. Nowadays you get knifed if you look at someone the wrong way and either called a racist, redneck or PC incorrect if you don't agree with the looney left or the fascist right. I'm too old for that crap - the sooner common sense comes back in to Australian society the better.

Wonder if the NRL CEO Greenturd will write a character reference for MCK? Or does one have to be a salary cap cheat first?

It's not favouritism though, there's no bias. it's just that Todd knows Greg and thinks he is a top bloke. So because Greg is a top bloke, who has done well for the NRL, Todd will give him a reference. And someone like MCK will not get one. But it's not favouritism though, that's just big business.
The game is in total disarray - what was always argued about has become blatantly obvious - that the hierarchy of the NRL play favourites - Greenturd ( sorry if I offend all the petals on here ) has gone over the top in giving a salary cap cheat, wife beater drunken speeding driver a character reference. Says more about Greenturds character than Inglis's.
