The Bulldogs terminated the contract of employment of Tandy following a show cause hearing before the Bulldogs board on Wednesday 16 March 2011, which Mr Tandy attended with his lawyer.
"The purpose of the show cause hearing was to determine whether Mr Tandy had placed a bet in relation to the Bulldogs game against the Gold Coast Titans on 18 June 2010, in which he played for the Club" Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg said.
"Mr Tandy declined to answer the Club’s question concerning this issue based on legal advice.
"The club formed the view that it was untenable for Mr Tandy to remain employed by the club, and continue to be paid his salary, in circumstances where he was refusing to provide information about a matter that is wholly within his knowledge and relates to duties which he expressly owes to the club.
"It is important to note that the action taken by the club today is distinct and separate from the serious criminal charges that Mr Tandy is facing.
"Mr Tandy is of course entitled to the presumption of innocence in relation to those charges."
