Gallop breaks the ice
WE’RE hoping Melbourne Storm fans have finally forgiven former NRL boss David Gallop for stripping the club of two premierships for salary cap rorting.
The soccer boss is attending today’s grand final, his first game since he was sacked by independent commission chairman John Grant in 2012. Gallop will be a guest in the NRL suite.
“I am pleased to be going to the game after taking a long break,” Gallop said.
“I’ve had ups and downs with both the Roosters and the Storm. Nick Politis and I had some huge arguments but some good laughs, too. I helped John Ribot and Chris Johns set up the Storm but later we had to make some tough decisions over their salary cap issues.”
