off topic i know ..but this is big (biggest in league history)

storm stripped of their premiership titles, lose all their points from the season and cannot gain points for wins due to salary cap. Sucks to be a storm fan http://www.nrl.com/news/news/newsart...p/default.aspx

anyway.. Bulldogs -7.5 @ 1.87

Imagine if you got on the storm for the wooden spoon before it was announced. You would get lots of $$$$$

Just think.

The Carlton Football Club and Melbourne Storm have something in common. One difference though, the Carlton Football Club never looked like, nor will they win a flag in the next 20 years.

Comparing Storm to the Blues is comparing apples to oranges. Today's story is the biggest sports story in news for a very, very long time.

Apparently someone had $40k on them for the spoon @ 250/1 this morning. Any book that takes that without alarm bells going off deserves to lose. Insane.

How can you compare the 2? All Blues lost were some number 1 draft picks

I don't see how the Storm can continue now. They were already losing something like $6m a year, News are not going to continue to prop them up.

It's ironic that it has to take a scandal like this for the Storm to make the front page of Melbourne newspapers

TAB have just announced that they will honour all Storm wooden spoon, miss the top 8 and 4 bets and will pay out at the end of the season. On the flip side they are going to refund all bets placed on the Storm to make the top 4, 8, win minor premiership and premiership bets.

That is pretty good of them to do that
