Waldron says he can say very little

6:36 am on 28 April 2010

Disgraced former Melbourne Storm chief executive Brian Waldron is remaining tight-lipped amid calls to reveal what he knows about the club's systemic salary cap rort.

Waldron has been accused of being the mastermind behind the five-year breach that led to 2 million dollars of rorts in secret, additional player payments that were eventually uncovered by the National Rugby League's auditing team.

He told Fairfax newspapers on Tuesday he rejected suggestions that he was the sole architect of the breaches and said he was prepared to lift the lid on the scandal - including the alleged role of News Limited.

Despite calls from News Limited chief executive John Hartigan to reveal what he knows publicly, Waldron opted not to elaborate on his comments in an interview with Channel Nine.....

Meanwhile, NRL boss David Gallop has strongly denied ruling out a salary cap amnesty because of concern that the rorts revealed would damage the game's reputation.

Waldron said he told Gallop in 2007 of widespread salary cap cheating and suggested an amnesty.
