League to consider loyalty fund to halt player drain - seems the NRL is still trying to figure out how to buy the loyalty of players who go where the money is. Sadly, it seems professional footballers no longer give a toss about loyalty - which is something you don't need to be paid for. You're either loyal or you're not. At the end of the day, if the Broncos lose Tuqiri to Rugby Union then they'll just bring up another promising reserve. The Broncos have spent years building a culture of well-supported juniors and outstanding feeder clubs like the Clydesdales. They nurture their own and if that loyalty isn't repaid, they shouldn't feel like they have to throw money at it. The rest of the League should probably think about that.
