Cameron Smith is possibly the greatest player in the game today having won 3 grand finals, 8 series for QLD and 34 games for Australia. He also has a barrel of individual medals, including the “Dally M” for best player of the year in 2006. Cameron Smith is poised to be an “immortal” of the game, the highest honour in the NRL (Ferguson, 2014).
Todd Carney, a superstar of the game, was sacked by his club in June 2014 after vulgar images of him appeared on social media sites. This was not the first scandal surrounding Todd Carney and due to past indiscretions many believe his NRL career is over (Chammas & Walter, 2014).
State of Origin:

A three game series played between the 34 best NRL players; 17 from Queensland vs 17 from New South Wales. Often considered as the pinnacle of rugby league due to the intense rivalry and passion between states, it dates back to 1980. It is one of the biggest events on the rugby league calendar each year and is often sold out (Smith, 2014).

Soccer is a popular sport played between two teams of eleven players using a spherical ball. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal on each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal. Soccer is played in over 200 countries and is the most popular game in the world.
Messi is the top ranked soccer player and has been named World’s Best Player of the Year for four years running. He made his debut in the first division in October
2004 against Esponyol; since that day Barcelona adopted him as their greatest idol. Messi has proven his status by scoring goals in two of the three Champions League finals he won with Barcelona, leaving many in no doubt that he is the best player of his generation and possibly of all time.

Erik Cantona, a former Manchester United player, was sent off during a game in 1995. Frustrated at being sent off he took out his frustration by kung-fu kicking a fan. He was suspended for the season, spent 7 days in jail and was given a heavy fine. (CBS News 2014)

ANZAC Day Clash:

The brainchild of Kevin Sheedy, the match between Essendon and Collingwood was established to commemorate those who fought in both World Wars. It has grown to become the most anticipated home and away game of the year (Essendonfc, 2014).
In 2012 the AFL integrity unit investigated the Melbourne Football Club for tanking in several games during the 2009 season (Ralph, 2011).

As a result of the investigation the club was cleared of wrongdoing, however sanctions were handed out to the Coach and the General Manager of Football Operations for acting in a manner prejudicial to the interests of the competition (Wilson, 2013).
