The Mole is 100% certain it's not Pearce SKD or Maloney
Well if it’s not Pearce or SKD we’re in the clear I reckon. Can’t imagine Watson or Guerra being that stupid.

Reformed rugby league bad boy Paul Carter has vehemently denied he has been leaking the Dylan Napa sex tapes as part of a campaign to extort money from his former Roosters teammate.
As Napa and his lawyers met with the NRL integrity unit on Tuesday to discuss the embarrassing drip-feed of explicit videos into the public domain, Carter found himself dragged into the scandal when a message from an unknown source alleged he was responsible for the leaked messages went viral.
It cites a "senior Roosters staff member" who claims Carter was a past member of a WhatsApp player group and had access to "all the videos". It says Carter fell out with Napa 18 months ago and he wanted money in exchange for keeping the videos private.
The message reads in part: "Each day or two that he doesn’t get paid his asking money he is then releasing a new video, and has deliberately started with the tame ones and threatening to build up to some pretty nasty ones."
The Roosters slammed that suggestion and so did Carter, who told the Herald that Napa had messaged him to confirm there was "no bad blood" between them and he didn’t believe the claims.
"I heard the allegations from people close to me, who messaged me in disbelief asking, ‘What’s going on here?’ I was in shock," Carter said. "Then I started getting a lot of follower requests on social media. I found that a bit strange. A friend, an ex-player I played with, gave me the heads-up. 'I want to let you know that I’ve heard this …' I got on the front foot and called my manager, who also manages Dylan, and I wanted to clear it up straight away.
"When I was at the Roosters, I had a great relationship with Dylan and still do to this day. He sent me a message [on Tuesday] confirming the exact same thing: that we have a good relationship and there’s no bad blood. I left the Roosters but there’s no bad blood with the club or any of the players."
Asked specifically about the blackmailing claims, Carter said: "I haven’t read the message and probably won’t. I’ve got bigger and better things to worry about than people playing games and making up stories. It’s sad that they don’t have anything better to do with their lives."
Similar accusations have been levelled at former Roosters players as speculation continues about who is the source of the video leaks.
In Carter’s case, it doesn’t add up because he was only at the club for less than half a season in early 2017 before being cut after a string of alcohol-related offences. The leaked videos showing Napa are said to be "four to five" years old.
Three videos showing Napa engaged in sex acts have surfaced on social media since last Friday. In two of them, he is having consensual sex with an unknown woman while referring to himself as "Big Papi".
A fourth video of Napa has also emerged, although it is innocent in comparison to the others. "Do you know Dylan Napa?" the Queensland Origin prop asks while looking into the camera before being hammered in a tackle involving an unknown man twice his size.
A furious NRL hauled Napa before the integrity unit on Tuesday, although it was held away from League Central to avoid media attention.
Incredibly, head office refuses to make comment on the matter because NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg, chief operating officer Nick Weeks and chairman Peter Beattie are on holidays.
Napa is said to be struggling as the videos are slowly leaked. He hasn’t trained for the Bulldogs, the club he joined from the Roosters during the off-season, for the past two days.
His mother, Karen, flew down from Brisbane to be by his side. Privately, the family do not believe a current player is responsible for the leak.
But who is?
Carter insists it’s not him. He has for the past year been quietly rebuilding his life in the Hunter Valley and is about to play his second season in the Newcastle league with the famous Cessnock Goannas.
"I’ve gone away and worked on what I’ve needed to work on and I’m proud of where I am today," he said. "To have all this come to light, it’s just sad where the game is going. People are out to make someone the villain.
"Football is a small part of my life now. The rest of my life is much better. I have a daughter, a partner and I work in the mines. I’ve been more comfortable in that part of my life than I have ever been and for this to come along is just a shock and a dampener on where I am at.
"I left the Roosters and had problems at the time. But there was no bad blood. I feel for all those players I used to play with. I really feel for them and I hope they come through it."
Didn't expect him to confess, "it's not me" is normal response wether guilty or not
I know it's a redundant comment, but geez, how lucky are we that we didn't sign Napa!
It's unlucky for the guy that something he stupidly filmed years ago could cause a possible suspension in 2019, the Doggies must be spewing.
An over the top suspension for doing nothing wrong? He might aswell be a Knight.
I think it’s hilarious that on NRL.com greenturd bangs on about the player behaviour. Just underneath it is Celebration of Inglis. Even though he’s been done drunk driving and previous for DV.
Nothing from the burgess incident either.
Then you have that scum Lodge running around like some feel good story.
Too many crims for me.
God bless Loz
"I'm just trying to come to terms with how Todd can say that he wants to crack down on bad behaviour yet give a character reference for GI when he's fronted up to court" Loz has his say on Greenberg's character reference for Greg Inglis
It’s the NRLs fault. Imagine half the crap the players do or have done and gotten away with it. It’s only the stuff that the public catch wind of.
I bet you could find 10 people on here that have witnessed an NRL player being a goose. Or at least have a friend who does.
I’d hate to imagine how much cocaine is done.
It’s like “Oh how unlucky your got got caught drinkdriving the only time you did it.”
There is 100% stuff we don't hear about, like those silent drug bans players get when clubs say they have 'an injury'.
There is another tape coming out featuring three high profile players
If Napa doesn’t want to make a complaint to the police then it’s his own stupid fault.
There is your first step in not being a grub.
God we dodged a bullet.
The NRL have handed down their sanctions
The NRL will fine Napa 10 per cent of his 2019 salary following the publication of several lewd videos featuring him.
It was decided not to suspend him because this is an historical incident with the videos dating back five years and due to the Player’s incorrect assumption that the material would not reach a broader audience.
However the NRL has warned that any video damaging to the game which is filmed and date stamped from today will incur significant penalties, including suspension.
Yet another player investigated over a sex tape. Doesnt sound good at all if this report is correct!
will we have any player left by rd 1?
I can imagine the next educational videos titled “Make sure no one is filming you when you have sex”
Don’t f*** and film. Simples.
tyrone May has now been withdrawn from the Panthers trial due to the video!
Possible supercoach cheapie coming in lol?
So there has been no complaint by anyone about his behaviour. Just a video surfaced of a private moment that was filmed.
Apparently he calls her a rat bag, and "pushes her head", which using the imagination I can image what was going down.
So, how is this any of our business or an NRL integrity matter at all?
RLPA needs to get some balls and start standing up for the players right to enjoy life.
