Yeah I realise the Mail do a lot of foul crap and appear to actively loathe women, but they have also had some very good campaigns, investigations and named the scum who killed Stephen Lawrence.

But the website is vile.

they have also dome so excellent investigations - generalising is childish

Guilty... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But despite my childish comment, I would dearly love someone, anyone, to rid our sport of this bane.

Personally I'd trust the Mail over the BBC any day! .... A bit like people quoting The Guardian as if it's a sensible, balanced viewpoint.

Ha ha ha ha ha - that's the funniest set of comments you've ever posted!

How are your BA miles doing?

Deadly spelling

BA = Budget Airlines... I'd rather fly Ryanair!

Personally I can't stand the Beeb, they seem to not quite get the concept of balanced reporting :)

I certainly agree that BA have lost the plot with planes - I still think their crew are good.

Back to the thread title...........I think if Saracens are found guilty they should be thrown out of the Premiership. That would also solve the relegation situation too.

Whenever I look through the sidebar they appear to love women.

I think if any club is found guilty they should be docked 40 or 50 points for the following season, players involved should be banned for 3 years, and agents involved should be banned for life. Well, that's what I think off the top of my head. Oh, and the CEO/club officials should be banned from all involvement in every level of rugby for a long time.

I really doubt anything will come of this though. The DM has produced nothing of any substance and Ryan Walkinshaw makes it sound like it's easy to get away with. Plus we know PRL has no balls.

Saracens, if they are guilty, will just pay off someone and continue breaching the cap. PRL won’t do anything.

They are innocent until proved otherwise.

Yes however last time they were proven to be cheating it was swept under the carpet, so if we’re keen to apply the principles of justice - the other primary one is that it is seen to be done.

Yes - if we're going to apply "innocent until proven guilty" can we have "the guilty will be punished"? I'm not sure how many people have actually said Saracens are breaking the salary cap (this time). Are we saying that unless people are already proved guilty we cannot question their innocence?

As I pointed out, if there were people you'd think Saracens might have difficulty fitting under the salary cap, then Farrell, the Vunipolas and Itoje might come up somewhere in your top five. Not sure about Wrigglesworth, is he in the same league or was he a late signing where perhaps the cap had already been reached?

Anyway, the Mail has spent four months looking at this, and simply claims there may be something for PRL to look at. As I said earlier, if the company assets are owned by the directors and the amount put into those assets reflect their shareholding, then I don't see any salary cap problem with them. If the players stick their earnings in a savings account, the interest earned doesn't count towards the salary cap. If someone else puts money into a savings vehicle for them, then of course it should.
