‘I’m sick of these knuckleheads’: Mark Levy fires up at second chances for Storm partygoers
The Melbourne Storm have come under fire, accused of bestowing slap-on-the-wrist punishments on three players caught at a party with an alleged illicit substance.
Mark Levy lambasted the club’s “pathetic” response, accusing the Storm and the NRL at large of “bending over backwards” for badly behaved players who bring the game into disrepute.
He suggested the League should adopt the no-second-chances approach employed by American codes such as the NBA.
“When are we going to get some accountability in the game of rugby league?
“Do you think I’d have a job if I did something similar? Of course not! I’d be frog-marched out of the joint and replaced with someone who knows right from wrong.
“I’m sick of these knuckleheads ruining the reputation of the game that I love.”

Sharks legend Paul Gallen also weighed in with a more sympathetic take, but largely agreed with Mark.
“I’d love to argue with you today, but I just can’t.
“What’s enough? That’s probably the question I’ve got to ask you.”
