NRL Sex Scandals on Four Corners Tonight

"Are there mothers around the country today looking at rugby league and saying, 'Do I want my son involved in this game, are these attitudes prevalent today, has it changed, are the NRL doing anything to wipe out these attitudes in the sport?' and that is really the question we have to answer."
Ferguson also questioned why the earlier Cronulla incident did not attract much publicity or action. "I think we all agree that is quite extraordinary in this case that such an event somehow managed to evade discussion at the time." From SMH

I had never much cared for the NRL until I moved to Redfern, and since then it always saddens me when I hear of stupidity and moral looseness of certain players which brings the game into disrepute. This quote is by Sarah Ferguson, a reporter for Four Corners, which is airing a story that will look at what they are calling the "Code of Silence" and the pack mentality that appears to be flourishing in the NRL. Should be an interesting watch.

What's the solution? Some clubs are thinking of banning the players from drinking, others are running education programs. I think they are only band aid solution to a deeper problem, which is moral. If this type of behaviour is to end, it will come about through repentance and a desire to seek good. Hopefully this will be from a recognition that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour.

I saw the 4 Corners programme - it was sad and disturbing and shows the damage that can be caused. The most disturbing thing was the lack of remorse shown by the players toward the victim. It seemed they were only regretful of the effect it had on their family. I think the fact that there is no easy answer to reform the NRL, points to their need for Christ and his forgiveness and reconciliation.

I am seriously not suprised this is happening within professional sports! I was playing representative baseball and a club event was organised, to raise money for the club, and it involved a stripper at the night event. I fortunately was not there, but this is only the tip of the iceberg.

But why cast such blame on the players? Did they make the woman do the things she did? ( i haven't seen the program on ABC)

I see so many things leading to this problem. Music video's, movies, tv shows, literature, etc. Our society thinks we can do 'good' when we only do what we want to do. Well look where that leads.

I must admit i could go on and on. This topic gets me hot under the collar. But for your sake i wont.

question for you all: what can we do to shine light into the dark cave these people are in?
