NRL Executives Think Clubs Should Have Bodyguards To Keep Players In Line
Published June 20, 2013
HERE TO STAY: The AAP reported NRL CEO Dave Smith said that "the code's hardline stance against misbehaving players was here to stay." Smith said that players "will need to quickly get the message, because the penalties would not be disappearing." Smith said, "The bad behaviors that we've seen, they're not acceptable to the fans. They're not acceptable to the players. And frankly they're not acceptable to us. They won't be tolerated. I think you've seen strong action from us, strong consistent action" (AAP, 6/19).
