Carney Watch – Todd gets bashed!

johnboy 12 May 2009 12

When former Canberra Raiders star player Todd Carney was run out of town on a rail departed these regions for the greener pastures of the Cape York Peninsula many wondered how long it would be before the cowboys of North Queensland administered their own more direct form of justice on the little fella.

The Herald Sun (always devoted Carney-watchers) brings word that Todd’s been in the anticipated bit of bother early on Sunday morning on Atherton’s main street:

    The alleged attackers, aged 19, 21, 23, 25, have been charged with public nuisance, and will appear in the Atherton Magistrates Court on June 2.

    Carney, who now plays for Atherton-based team, the Roosters, has been involved in numerous off-field incidents and has chosen not to press assault charges over the incident.

Aside from a black eye our hero is otherwise OK and still right to play for Atherton against Tully on Saturday.

Seems to work in that industry……

Yup, my brothers mine they get breatho’d every day, and drug tested about once a week. People who want the money mostly manage to handle it.

Cycling is another sport with incredibly strict testing schedules. While it came out of the doping problems, you can be sure that it limits the use of recreational drugs. Add zero alcohol to the list and Roberts you Dads brother.

Mate works in a mine. Zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol there. Weekly testing is a condition of employment contract. “Don’t want to play by these rules for the big bucks – don’t sign the contract” he was told. If you do fail the D and A test you get fired and blacklisted. Seems to work in that industry……..

Footballers should dedicate their lives to playing not being in the papers for all the wrong reasons like this clown.
Footballers should not drink. You shouldn’t put diesel in a Ferrari. I know it’s hard but they are earning big money, but a clown like this and alcohol dont mix

I was reading the story of this in this morning’s herald, and cackling happily. These things don’t happen to people randomly. He pissed ’em orf. And they got him. They’re his kind of people.

He may be a dick, and yes, I wrote and recorded a song which was played on commercial radio which bagged him out, but he doesn’t deserve being punched out by a group of, obviously very brave, rednecks.

And yes, he’s still a dick.

Carney is lucky all the attention at the moment is on the Four Corners story otherwise the media would be having a field day with him.
