The NRL buckled and let them back into the comp but only if they agreed to change their name to LOL@Souff$ and they did. Then good old Rusty decied to jump on the bandwagon and tried to be Australia's Elton John, buying his own footy club - LOL@Souff$ was going cheap so he snapped it up, thinking "All these b-grade celebs think they're the shit, getting publicity for pretending to feel sorry for a footy club based in scummy Redfern, I'll show them how hardcore I am, I'll BUY the ****en club!!!"

And so he did, and now he's selling it because Danielle's making him as part of their divorce - the once-proud team of rabbit-skinners has become a bargaining chip in a divorce settlement
the funny thing is i used to like souths before i came across snide_bloated_choad.. i still want to see them do well i guess but jeez he makes it hard

Souths are my 2nd fave team too but have to admit anything bad about them that gets the steak fraud in a tizzy posting irrelevant nonsense about the past and shit that nobody but Souths supporters care about makes me laugh.

Retrospectively estimating a player's value after a season in which he played little club footy but repped for NSW and Australia isn't exactly fair, and the fact that Manly have only been fined $60k indicates the severity of their "cap cheat" isn't that high, hence the small punishment by the NRL.

As for last year's cap vs this year's? You just have to look at who Manly have lost and who they've bought over the past few years to see they haven't spent up big. Also bear in mind they probably have several of their higher paid players on backended contracts that were sweating on the salary cap increase this year.

They've lost Will Hopoate (2011), Tony Williams (2012), Dean Whare (2012), Michael Oldfield (2012), Darcy Lussick (2012), Michael Robertson (2011), Shane Rodney (2011)

They've had no major signings for 2011-2013.
OK losing Williams would have freed up some cap space. But if all them players are leaving I cant work out why they couldnt get under the new bigger Salary Cap.

The players are on a contract that puts them under the salary cap but Crowe gets the players wives/girlfriends/kids whatever jobs as extras on movies getting paid 6 figure sums. Easts salary cap auditor Ian Schubert enough said.

Well he was always going to retain ownership for this year, i suspect he made comments about simplifying his life etc when he was disconnected from family & everything was falling apart, now he's back in Sydney & in control, i imagine he is less emotional & compulsive

But realistically, i doubt there would be anyone all that keen in buying into a footy club right now, they are a drain & dont make money but if someone was going to buy one, Souths would be no doubt first cab off the rank, at least they are starting to show a profit, sure it gets put back into the club for the most part but at least its not so much of a drain, its self sufficient

Im sure there was plenty of interested parties until they realised that you lose money when you buy a football club and they arent money making machines like in the EPL and NFL. I cannot fathom anybody wanting to buy a rugby league club for anything more than being charitable and helping them out because you are a big fan.
