Todd Carney has been caught up in yet another scandal. This time a photo was posted overnight that showed the troubled Cronulla star urinating in his own mouth.

Reports are circulating that the Cronulla board have just acted to the news which has been sweeping social media all morning. Carney has been reportedly sacked.

A search on RiotACT using the phrase ‘Todd Carney‘ brings up a list of his indiscretions over the years.

UPDATE – 5.33pm
A statement has been issued by the Cronulla Sharks CEO Steve Noyce confirming that Todd Carney’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect.

This would be a terrible shame for Carney who had a blinder of a game on Friday night against the Broncos. I was thinking then “this lad has turned the corner at last”.

I still remember a video of a chimpanzee doing the same thing at a zoo. And it was just as funny then too!

I don’t see the big deal. It is quite obvious he got stung by a jellyfish on the tongue and was practising the appropriate first aid

‘Taking the p$ss’ goes to a whole new level.

Who leaked it anyway?

I wonder how long before this act is renamed “the carny” and replicated at the moose by like minded dunderheads.

A disclaimer first. I don’t know Todd Carney, I’m not a shrink and I don’t give the patootie of a rat about rugby league.
There’s no question that some of his reported indiscretions have been examples of what no adult, or well-behaved child, should ever do. No sane and sober person would want to be in the same postcode as Todd Carney in full cry.
But, I have to ask, why does he do this stuff? I have previously held to an “entitled child” theory – he has been a remarkably talented rugby league player from a young age, paid amounts beyond the dreams of most people, so he’s never been told that he should not do anything he wants to do. It’s an easy pop-psych answer.
This latest event has made me question that characterisation and come up with something a touch more disturbing. When he unleashes the inner ratbag, one of two things happen. Either he’s forgiven (“that’s just the way Todd is”, “you have to accept the Hyde with the Jekyll” etc) and gets the warmth of being loved despite himself or he gets the equivalent of a public beating and humiliation. Getting sacked from one NRL team seems hard (unless it’s the Raiders and the player is manoeuvring to be sacked so he can got to the Roosters or the Sharks) but getting sacked from three suggests that that kind of rejection is what he’s looking for at some level.
In other words, he wants to be punished, and frankly, that’s not a sign of a really healthy mind. Get him to one of the funny doctors, please, someone. Just in case.

I never thought I would link to this YouTube footage in a serious, adult conversation. And yet, here we are. I think it highlights some interesting (but not unexpected) parallels between NRL players and primates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs-hxI_wLSI

Fortunate for Carney that Luis Saurez wasn’t sharing the same urinal.

If Carney ever invites you out for a night on the p%ss. Do not accept.

I’ve been drunk on many occasions, really drunk such that I couldn’t walk and just threw up lying in a garden bed. But at no stage would I ever think this would be a good idea, same for dog licking photo on Monaghans and any of these other photos people seem to take.

An interesting set of double standards by the media on this one. When the Monaghan “bestiality” pic came out, most of the media published a censored version. The only place I have seen the Carney pic is on last night’s Nine News. Today’s Daily Telegraph has even stated that they will not publish the pic in any form either in print or on the website. I would have thought the Monaghan pic was far worse than the Carney pic.

Silly move by the club he should have been forced to under go physiological treatment and then be able to return and have contrition , cutting him astray is a loss for the club and a semi win for Todd and another club, he wont learn!

I think he has arrested development (difficult childhood?) and hasn’t grown much beyond about the age of a stroppy 8 year old.

Imagine losing 700,000 a year salary over something as stupid as this.

having now been sacked from the raiders, Roosters and the Sharks, I don’t think too many clubs would be willing to sign him up. The NRL should just issue a life ban for his consistent arsehattery.

I really think The Raiders should try and get him back while he is at his peak. He was great in halves before and he can be better if he is given the chance. At least he runs with the ball and scores tries.
When all the knee-jerk “shock/horror” of what he has done is analysed does it really matter?
Was anyone injured, did he destroy any property, did he abuse anyone, has he committed a criminal act this time? No.
In fact, his off-field behaviour is something we have become accustomed to expecting (and accepting until next time).
I find the act of a Queensland NRL player defecating in the hallway of a hotel far more repugnant that what Todd Carney has done yet that player hardly got a slap on the wrist and he contiues to play.
In fact, if I was Carney I would be taking legal action against the person who took the photo and disseminated it on social media. I think that is called invasion of privacy.

The difference is that Carney is a repeat offender with a string of offences and he has been warned twice by the club. This latest incident is the straw that broke the camel’s back and as far as i’m aware, fortunately, there wasn’t a photo of ***** defecating in the hotel corridor circulating on social media

Well the word “bubbling” has entered my word-stock of “rude” words.

If there was a photo it would be actually be a motion one.
