Canberra not good enough for Josh Dugan says his preggo ex

By johnboy - 25 March 2013 17

Canberra Times Entertainment and Lifestyle reporter Jenna Clarke has taken time out from her own Canberra bashing to bring us an exciting new take on the genre.

This time it’s the heavily pregnant and recently dumped 23 year old ex-girlfriend of former Raiders star Josh Dugan:

While Ms Palmer is unsure about which club the 22-year-old football prodigy will eventually sign with, she believes a move out of Canberra is long overdue, saying he was “a big fish in a little pond, a change is always good”.

“I believe he needed to get out of Canberra. He’s been there his whole life and it was just a toxic place for him,” she said.

The heavily tattooed Ms Palmer has herself returned to Brisbane for the birth of her second child before a possible move overseas for a “fresh start”.

Personally I’d be pointing the finger a bit more in young Josh’s direction than Canberra. But I’m not trying to stay on the Dugan gravy train.

What’s Your opinion?

I would always see Josh Dugan out in Queanbeyan a fair bit while playing poker.. He was a lovely young guy until he starting playing first grade…. He had issues many many years ago as soon as he moved up to first grade… He turned into someone you’d see chain smoking and downing endless beers. His friends and Raiders should have the fingers pointed at them… Too much money getting thrown at people who don’t know how to handle it

Get real. He’s an adult, he can say “no” all by himself. He doesn’t need others to hold his hand for him. It’s nobody’s fault but his own.

If you or someone close to you had a drinking / gambling / issue and no one stepped in and helped is it still only their problem or does responsibility also fall back onto those around him ??

I’m not try to defend him, but he has issues and it appears no one wants to help. Other football teams just want to throw more money at him.

Unfortunately many of our profession sporting “heroes” fit this. Paid too much, no responsibility, never had a real job and real life problems.

Hardly an excuse. There are hundreds of young blokes in exactly the same position across all footy codes that manage to hold it together and actually do the job they are paid to do.

I’m sure she has talents that more than compensate for her rudimentary grasp of the English language.

That may well be, but at some stage one must talk to their partner. If what comes back is brainless drivel well, one starts looking elsewhere for mental stimulation.

Maybe Josh isn’t that type of bloke. Don’t know him and hope I never will.

This story will deliver so much more when “Mrs Palmer” has inevitably popped out her five daughters.

This isn’t the brilliant Amanda Palmer.

Anything but brilliant going by her supportive statements she posted on social media. As quoted in the Canberra Times.

”ill support you through everything you do. forget the backstabbers there’s a reason there behind you. Your great at what you do. Ever since I met you, I seen some amazing changes your amazing with my daughter and we have a son on the way,”

I’m sure she has talents that more than compensate for her rudimentary grasp of the English language.

Yes apparently she more than makes up for her poor written communication skills with outstanding oral skills!

I like to think it is the brilliant Amanda Palmer.

That would totally be a sitcom worth watching.

Who is Josh Dugan? Who is Amanda Palmer (I know of the former Dresden Dolls one)? Who really cares?

No idea who Dugan is, but Amanda Palmer is brilliant!

bundah 5:17 pm 25 Mar 13

Of course it’s Canberra that has turned Dugan into an irresponsible,undisciplined troubled young man.Quickly relocate him elsewhere where he can undergo immediate therapy to remove those toxins!
