Six-time premiership winning coach Wayne Bennett has weighed into the NRL salary debate, saying he hasn't seen players so militant for a long time.
Bennett says the players aren't just talking tough on calls for greater transparency over the game's revenues and administrators shouldn't think the issue will simply go away.
The lowest paid NRL players currently earn about $50,000 a season, up from $37,000 last year. O'Meley says players still have to earn their stripes and more than $50,000 could have some players taking it easy.
