Warriors chairman Maurice Kidd is refusing to budge despite calls for his resignation in the wake of the damning salary cap breach.

The breach could see the Warriors fined and docked up to six competition points - before the NRL season begins.

Kidd was chairman under the old regime where it occurred but says it would be premature to stand down.

The Warriors have been vilified in media coverage across the Tasman with headlines like "Shonky Isles" and "Code violaters get electric shock treatment" screaming out from the Sydney papers.

The questions are starting to be asked of the Warriors' apparent lack of knowledge of the salary cap breaches.

Former Warriors marketing manager Dean Lonergan has hit out saying if the club knew about the cap breach late last year, of course they would want the news to be kept quiet, to make sure it did not affect season ticket sales.

Lonergan says it is convenient to blame former CEO Mick Watson, and questions why he allowed to make any sort of alleged extra payments with the Warriors board watching on.

Like I said in the other thread those Australian papers can GO AND GET STUFFED!!!
As for what Lonergan said I don't think that anything about anyone going should happen until the full story is known and even if there is a board if you're the CEO there are ways to get around other people knowing or not letting them in on the full story

maybe thats a good thing, he,s backed into a corner (or very soon will be) and hopefully will be forced to open his mouth and tell us what really went on.

then he can resign.

He needs to go.

Firstly claiming that the auditors, who in November reported to the NRL that there maybe 'issues' with the cap. Yet Kidd denied any knowledge of a cap breach. The NRL through the Australian media have said that the auditor was due to re-visit the club during the pre-season to complete the audit as he saw some problems. Sounds like the old man has memory problems.

Also if Kidd is the big boss and needs to step in like he has this year, why is his actions not CONSISTENT with last year. Why did he not atleast question Mick Watson regarding the two major signings of 2005. Now I am not an accountant but it would cross my mind having Stacey, Ruben and Steve Price on the same books. I would want to ensure my club would be clear of any salary cap issues.

Your a few years too late Mr. Kidd. Step down and piss the f*ck off from our club.
