Two Bulldogs Players Accused by Police of Obscene Exposure While the Club is Beaten with a Fine of $ 250,000

Four Canterbury players were fined and others were charged after the club received a $ 250,000 fine from the NRL for their Mad Monday mischief.

Canterbury has been punished with a record $ 250,000 fine by the NRL, while Bulldogs players have been charged by the police and have charged another $ 90,000 in penalties for their Mad Monday antics.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg has tried to draw a line in the sand after footage of Bulldogs players dancing naked on the balcony of a pub and collapsing on the street gave the code a purple eye on the Eve of the final.

Adam Elliott, 23, and Asipeli Fine, 25, were fined $ 25,000 for the club with $ 10,000 suspended after being photographed naked on the balcony of the Harbor View Hotel in The Rocks, Sydney.

The pair has also been accused by the NSW police of intentional and obscene exposure and will appear at the Downing Center Local Court on October 24.

Marcelo Montoya – who imagined he vomited and collapsed on the street – and Zac Woolford were also fined $ 10,000 each for the club, half of which were suspended.

Woolford also received a notice of offense for offensive conduct by the police.

The hotel where the players went crazy has received five penalty notifications: two for allowing indecent behavior and three for allowing intoxication in a licensed premises.

A police spokeswoman told AAP that no more charges are expected.

Staff members, including coach Dean Pay and football manager Gareth Holmes, who were present, will be scrutinized as part of a club investigation.

Greenberg said he had a weak view of the incident since the event was organized by the club, and senior officials could not prevent the players from behaving rudely.

"The club organized the event and did not implement the most basic measures to ensure that it was carried out properly," he said.

"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.

& # 39; Behavior of the players embarrassed themselves, their club and the game & # 39;

The NRL $ 250,000 fine is the largest awarded by the Central Rugby League for player misconduct.

Greenberg, former CEO of the Bulldogs, said he wanted to send a message after the drama diverted attention from the first week of the final.

Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill said the club would respond to the NRL breach notice in the next five days in the hope that the fine would be reduced.

By accepting that the players behaved inappropriately, he said the club did not agree with the severity of the sanctions.

Hill also said that the club was ready to scrap future crazy Monday celebrations.

"Although the club is disappointed by the severity of the fine, it accepts the images and behaviors of the day that were unacceptable and a poor reflection on the game," Hill said.

"The club will now conduct a full review and will take steps to ensure that this never happens again."
