National Rugby League Set To Review Salary Cap In '14; NSWRL CEO Rules Out Booze Ban
Published June 25, 2013
BOOZE BAN: Also in Sydney, Adrian Proszenko reported new New South Wales Rugby League CEO David Trodden "has ruled out introducing a booze ban to curb the spate of alcohol-fuelled incidents affecting Origin, saying a blanket ban would create more problems than it solves." While the adverse headlines they have generated "prompted some pundits to call for an end to bonding sessions," Trodden said that abolition is not the answer. Trodden said, "I'm a believer in everything in moderation. The world has moved on from the days of the old bonding sessions that used to go on. It's difficult to legislate for every single instance. If you try to do that, you legislate yourself out of existence" (SMH, 6/25).
