All Carney, all the time

By johnboy - 25 July 2008 13

Todd Carney is the gift that keeps on giving.

Today the Canberra Times has some great quotes by All Bar Nun bouncer Ben Casey:

    ”The rest of the players aren’t the problem it’s Todd Carney,” he said. ”He’s ruining the reputation of the team and he has been doing it for years. It’s just one little piss-head who can’t control his grog.”

Read the article, there’s more great stuff buried in there.

I love how despite accusing the media of beating up a story out of nothing Raider’s management is now torn over whether to “help” him or to let him go.

What great humanitarians they are wanting to cosset the little poppet and take him under loving wings rather than turning him lose into the cold hard world.

Never mind that the team environment has done such a great job in his personal development so far.

And hey, he’s a fine looking hunk of cattle out on the field right?

UPDATED:And now The Crimes is running a nice little drip fed hatchet job on Steve Irwin for their buddies in the Raiders.

What’s Your opinion?

Quotes from Ben Casey – now there’s a star in Canberra hat as far as pub security goes. I saw security pull him off more patrons, when he worked at O’Malley’s, than throw other people out. He was the cause of the problem.

Carney will get his own eventually, he’ll bark at the wrong girl and get his head smacked. Watch for the woe is me story when his career is over.

I’m more concerned about Irwin’s claims than Carney. Carney’s replaceable, just listen for the big cheer from the crowd when Marc Herbert takes his first run tomorrow night.

(Should be some interesting placards in the stands too. Raiders Army, I’m looking at you.)

Go Raiders!!!

Give him the boot, there are plenty of aspiring young football players out there who would love the chance he’s had, and could well be as good on the field as Carney with the right coaching. Being better off the field would need little effort!

Exactly. He’s 22. At 22 I was married, working full-time & paying a mortgage. He’s playing footy, barking at women & p155ing on people.

at 22, I was sacked for being hungover at work.

zero tolerance policy.

if he is an embarrassment to the club, imagine how much the rest of the country is laughing at us…

I’ve herad he really does have a gift that keeps on giving – if you know what I mean…

What…like herpes?

The problem seems to be consequences. Nobody wants to be accountable for anything these days.

He should be called to account for his actions, if the Raiders come off second best on the field because of it so be it.

He did the wrong thing and should be made to face it like a man.

Stop referring to him as a kid he’s not, there are tonnes of adults his age out there making it on their own and learning from their mistakes.

He’ll never learn as long as his mistakes are being excused.

And if he wants to bark at women like an annoying dog then treat him like an annoying dog and nueter him.

If Ben Casey has “seen it for years” why does he allow Carney to enter the premises in the first place. Surely not letting him in solves the problem befotre it occurs. Seems like ABN likes to be known as a footballers hangout.

And Overheard – yep almost all grog issues would be solved with proper enforcement of RSA by licenced premises.

Overheard 10:13 am 25 Jul 08

The pertinent question in the comments under that CT story is why, if Carney’s been doing it for years, is he still served? Why isn’t he bounced out every time on the grounds of RSA compliance?

Gee a footballer who’s a d**ckhead. What a surprise.
