The Bulldogs have been fined $ 250,000 after club players stripped naked and danced to Neil Diamond in a Sydney pub before vomiting in the streets during their Mad Monday parties.
NRL Chief Executive Todd Greenberg warned that the "no doubt" action would be taken against the Bulldogs, alleging that the club's antics at the Harbor View Hotel had left the game before the final.
"The club organized the event and did not implement the most basic measures to ensure that it was carried out properly," Greenberg said in a statement when the fine was announced.
The Bulldogs have been fined $ 250,000 after the club's players divested themselves of the Harke View Hotel in Sydney on Monday.
"The inability of the club to manage the event followed specific directives for all clubs to ensure that this type of event does not harm our game.
"The behavior of the players embarrassed themselves, their club and the game on the eve of the series of finals."
It is also expected that three Bulldogs stars, Adam Elliott, Asipeli Fine and Marcelo Montoya, collect their own club fines, which will total $ 40,000.
"The actions of some players and officials were inexcusable and we are determined to send a message that it will not be tolerated this time, or in the future," Greenberg added.
Greenberg said the NRL had obtained a report from the Bulldogs about what happened at the event, interviewed club CEO Andrew Hill and reviewed other material related to the event.
The sanction proposed by the NRL is exactly half of what the Bulldogs were fined for wage infractions in 2002, which saw the club stripped of its premiership points for the season.
NRL Chief Executive Todd Greenberg warned that "no doubt" action will be taken against the Bulldogs.
Greenberg said the Bulldogs have five business days to respond to the notice of default before making a final determination.
He said that three players are under police investigation.
Photographs captured by The Daily Telegraph showed a second rower, Adam Elliott, that his genitals were seized by a teammate, while another player was seen standing next to his own vomit.
Rugby League Players Association CEO Ian Prendergast said the behavior of the players was unacceptable, but said he was concerned about the "intrusive nature of the reports."
"While we accept that the players have gotten out of line on this occasion, they have the right to let their hair down at the end of a difficult year," he said in a statement.

"Given the emotion involved in incidents like these, it is important that we all breathe deeply and put things in context, while working in the process in a measured way."
He said the RLPA would monitor the situation to ensure that the players were "fairly treated."
End-of-season celebrations were held in a private section of the hotel, but the public was able to listen and watch the parties.
A singing of 'yeah, guys! & # 39; it was heard when Brett Morris and others left the poker machine room, according to the newspaper.
His brother Josh addressed the controversy on Tuesday morning with a post on Instagram, which he titled: "Perception vs. Reality."

The publication, which has since been removed, showed an image of Prince William taken from two different angles.
In one, the Prince seemed to hold three fingers in the air, while in the other, he seemed to turn the bird towards the crowd.
The Bulldogs responded on Tuesday morning and said the photos were a "bad look for the game."
"As for the images of the team meeting on Monday, the club accepts that they were unacceptable and a poor reflection on the people involved and the club," the Bulldogs said in a statement.
"The players are aware of their responsibilities and the required standards when they represented the club and yesterday's behavior was unacceptable and had a bad appearance for the game.
"The club will now work with all interested parties to gather information and fully review what happened yesterday." The club is also working closely with the NRL regarding the determination of next steps in this review.
