League’s group sex ‘pack mentality’ culture lights up social media

THE expose on the sordid group sex culture of the NRL has triggered a swift reaction across media commentators and social media.

Sydney stripper Belinda Medlyn’s decision to lift the lid on the players’ bonding sessions – group sex sessions – and her ‘relationship’ with former West Tigers star Bodene Thompson has seen a swift and searing reaction.

The Penthouse model and stripper told The Daily Telegraph she consented to group sex with the now New Zealand Warriors star and his teammates.

The pair has a 15-month-old son Hendrix, who was conceived in 2015 while one of Thompson’s teammates watched on. Medlyn claims she did not use a condom when Hendrix was conceived at the insistence of the New Zealand Test international representative.

Their relationship has turned into an ugly dispute over finances to raise their child but it has also shone a spotlight again on an unsavoury side of the NRL.

3AW Radio commentator Justin Smith told Channel 7 he fears what really goes on behind the closed doors of NRL clubs if stories like Medlyn’s continue to be made public.

“It makes me absolutely sick,” he said.

“If that’s what comes to the surface and to the media, what the hell is going on in these locker room.”

Channel 7 sports broadcaster Mel McLaughlin this morning described the affair as “ugly” for the NRL.

“I don’t think you can have a crack at the governing body, the NRL, per se anymore. I think they do a lot,” McLaughlin told Sunrise.

“It has been an ongoing problem. It’s something for me I saw in school. The attitude, the untouchable attitude. But it’s a two-way street. This is messy. It’s a messy story, the whole thing.

“But I think the pack mentality isn’t great. It’s certainly not all players. All men do not feel that way about women, but we saw that’s a two-way street.

“It’s an ugly thing if you’re the NRL. You’d go, ‘What more can we do? We educate. They’re not children’.

“We have to educate them to respect them. How hard is it just to respect women? Don’t see them as objects, but the girls as well, and it’s not all girls, but let’s say these girls are actively involved in the texting and maybe enjoying it, you have to be accountable as well.”

Ms Medlyn said the culture in the NRL makes players believe they can get away with anything.

“There’s a pack mentality among NRL players,” she said.

“They think they’re rock stars who can do what they want, until it goes wrong.”

The Warriors released a statement today to declare the club does not plan to take any action against Thompson, saying the scandal is a “personal matter” between him and Ms Medlyn.

“Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George said Thompson and his lawyer had kept them fully informed while the club had also notified the NRL Integrity Unit about the matter.”

Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter were also on fire with punters posting their comments. Perhaps unsurprisingly, no-one is particularly shocked with one Twitter post reading, “Been happening for at least 20 years that we know of.”
