On the eve of the extraordinary NRL season, when sex tape was released, players were charged and accused of serious crimes, a number of women said.
In a series of weekly interviews with Seven Networks with journalist Steve Pennells, women from both NRL and AFL circles have discovered their shocking treatment in the hands of the football players.
NRL Executive Director Todd Greenberg admitted that he had seen some of the videos in circulation, including the one in which the alleged NRL player had a foot on the back of a woman's head and said he was "horrified," but there was no evidence that sex was a consensus.

"When I look out I'm horrified, I'm the father of a daughter of a teenager," Greenberg said.
"We must be convinced where there is consent and what is illegal – and if there is no consent, we will act in the strongest sense, as well as the law."
However, Greenberg is accused of failing to respond to the email of Belinda Medlin, a former Penthouse Pet and stripper, with whom she had a relationship with the child of former NRL star Bodene Thompson.
That relationship began with an indecent trial at the nightclub in Townsville, where he put the idea of having a trio with Thompson and another man.
In her story, she states that Thompson then gave her colleagues a picture of her team to see who she wants to have with group sex.
Medlin remained fully aware that she played a role in the script that took place, but now, later with her child, she admits that she has left the feeling as a "facility".
"I was an object," said Medlin.
"The toy among his friends to show up with," for see what this fish will do "
"I knew what I was doing and I understood my part in all this.
"It was a show – it was something they seemed to delight in."
In the end, Medlin was pregnant, and the paternity test said that the child was "99.9999 percent father of my unborn child, Hendrik".
And while he heard the video from a camera that Thompson seemed to play as a proud father to his newborn when he heard that he was saying, "Hello, boy, now you're opening your eyes, hey, my son," the link to Medlin soon broke down, seeking support from NRL and Thompson club.
She said she had sent an email to NRL and his club with all the content of the relationship, group sex, the problems of paying the child and supporting the child – she claims she has encountered a threat in response to Thompson's lawyers.
"I did not get any answer (from the NRL)," Medlin said, but she got one of Thompson's lawyers.
"I was threatened that if I went ahead with this (interview), I would face the jail to tell my side of the story."
NRL Executive Director Todd Greenberg says he was not aware of that, but that he had read Medlin's email.
"That email sent me and forwarded to our integrity unit as you would expect," said Grinberg, but later said he was not aware of the threats allegedly directed to Medlin.
As for Thompson, they asked him if he regretted his behavior and simply gave one answer.
"It's all resolved," Thompson said.
While Greenberg took his stand against shooting and sharing sex spots by former NRL star Todd Carneia, who was at the center of many scandals, but none of those who were sexually said he believed that the involved women would know that the videos is taken.
"Everyone knows this is not the case, and the players would be disappointed in themselves," Carnei said.
"You should not be (do it), but in some videos, girls do not say anything.
"I do not approve of these videos, but in some videos you see that the girls know that the video was recorded and that it's OK."
While the NRL was in focus, the AFL did not even go out lightly, while one woman claimed that she and a friend were recently shot by AFL players without their consent.
A woman named Cindy told Seven her story of going home with two players.
"These two guys immediately began to take off their clothes and maybe about an hour (they started filming us)," she said.
"My girlfriend shouted to stop recording."
And although they may have stopped, they believe that the players will share the video, but they have made a request for them.
"I do not know how many people (seen).
"I just want to know that everything you've taken away is erasing me. Do the right thing from me. "
New claims come after a shocking extraordinary period for the NRL, especially when it is seen that codes grow from one crisis to another.
