    As JB said, lots of people take drugs. You'd be naive to think the lawyers, judges and even some coppers out there aren't taking illegal drugs in some form. Don't get me started on doctors and health care professionals. All sorts of people use drugs for all sorts of reasons. Don't be so precious that because one drug is made illegal it makes it worse than another. Alcohol and tobacco are the biggest drug problems in this country.

    Anyway, I've said it before, let it play out, it will settle, the media will find the next story to beat up and we can all move on, with or without those found guilty of drug use.
    well said, excellent post

    If this truly is the tip of the iceberg and there are say, 20 or 30 more nrl players charged, what will be the expectations then? I'm happy for a clean out as long as it's fair and equitable among all clubs.
    If that's the case, maybe the NRL need to temporarily set up a board to handle the offenders to do their utmost that everything is dealt with fairly. Otherwise there'll probably clubs that want to retain players 'n others want to unload at their discreation. But yeah, if 20 or 30 players in the poo, that'll have huge ramifications for the game in 2015.

It will benefit us in the future when we might possibly have a rebuilt team. The Broncos have done this well with guys like Hunt (not Khunt), McCullough, McGuire, Copley etc all coming through the ranks. Plan for the future with young guys I say and possibly chuck in a DCE or Taumalolo and we might be heading for a good future
    good post and totally agree with bring on our very good young talent, they will surprise you and I think perform very well in the NRL.

    Ha there is a new DMAA, i think its renamed name now.

    Being serious though i would say most of us have tried something, maybe not as heavy but still drug related. We are human and make mistakes; some more then others ; these guys need to be made an example off ; not just our club but for the game. Being addicted to something is hard... This is not a simple fix...

    Even if most of these charges are downgraded or dropped I reckon most of these players will be gone. Bird was on very thin ice before this I believe.

    I don't think it's addiction, but I wouldn't know, but it sounds like a party, maybe mad Monday as suggested, I don't know, but I'm thinking it was probably a bunch of mates living in the moment. A dumb mistake, hopefully a one off. Live and learn. So what about forgiveness?

    Feeling of the certain drug would be addictive. The feel of Euphoria...no forgiveness here; i would love to play for the titans, i know i will never (too cute anyhow ) ; they have had a great chance and screwed it.

    I was pretty filthy when the Titans signed Greg Bird.

    The man before the player. That's what they always said, then they started signing the likes of Bird, and other players who were off the rails, just because they could pick them up cheap.

    Was it a bad idea? Of course. The saying 'one bad apple spoils the bunch' exists for a reason. You put this player into the club, give him the position of a role model for the young players... and well, to use another old saying, you reap what you sow.

    I have not given the Titans another dollar of my money since they signed this bloke. I thought he'd be gone one day, and it looks like he will, but the club may not survive another blow.

    Just wondering if someone can define "Supply" ???? Is it where the individual knows the dealer and puts someone in contact with the dealer??? That's just my guess????

    Supply is a very broad term used in the courts, we wont know anything until it goes to court.

    I would love to see the club make a statement & sack Bird & Taylor today then after the court finishes with them it will be up to ASADA to deal with the problems.
