While the NRL world has been rocked with the news regarding the Melbourne Storm, who have been stripped of two premierships and three minor premierships due to a salary cap issue, the AFL may suffer ramifications.
There have been speculations the undefeated St Kilda could be amid the salary cap manipulation, and as a result Sportsbet have suspended betting on the AFL wooden spoon market.

If it comes about and the Saints are indeed guilty of the same rorting of the system and they are dealt the same punishment as the Storm, they will indeed land the wooden spoon.
Haydn Layne from Ladbrokes.com.au.com.au hopes that there is no truth in the rumours, and says the betting suspension is as a result of several punters betting on the Saints to finish with the wooden spoon with odds ranging from $5001 to $1001.
“One punter placed a bet of $110 on the Saints for the Wooden Spoon to win $110, 000,” Haydn Lane said.
The AFL will be looking into player’s contracts in an upcoming investigation.
St Kilda are currently second on the ladder, with odds of $4.50 to win the flag, and face Port Adelaide on Saturday night.
