Carneywatch: He’s Back!

By johnboy - 22 October 2008 32

Todd Carney’s turned his back on the bright lights of Kigali touch football and, according to the Canberra Times he’s back in Canberra.

    “Sacked Canberra Raider Todd Carney was an interested spectator at the Scottish rugby league team’s training yesterday.

    Carney returned to the capital to meet with his new boss Richard Thewlis, the chief executive of his Super League club Huddersfield and Scotland World Cup team manager.

On past form that would make Mooseheads and the casino spots to avoid, although All Bar Nun might remain an outside possibility.

What’s Your opinion?

@tylers:
Let me guess, a shy, no girlfriend type geek who has to buy people drinks so they’ll talk to you – and you’re so uncoordinated that you can’t ride a bike? Thanks…

Facts worth considering:

1) You barely know me, you’ve gone out on a limb in a public forum making guesses at things, and have a historic tendency to get things wrong, and be repeatedly shown up for it.

Sorry to disappoint, but I’m more of a short-duration social monogamist than the shy, no girlfriend type.

2)The bicycle event is being held in Canberra’s inner north, on a Saturday.
Canberra is quite large in residential area with seven regional centres, and according to ACT Health Statistics, the population is consistently more likely to engage in physical activity than most of the country, and also has a lower prevalence of disability than most areas of Australia with a rate of incidence at 16% of population, but for some reason you assumed that I not only do I live within easy travelling distance of Civic, but am unable do to lack of motor control, and do not want to.

For the record, I drive only when I need to, own a bike, ride it around my area infrequently, swim more regularly, hate using buses to get around but do it for budgetary reasons, but bus services are terrible in my suburb on weekends, and suburban routes are notoriously bad at catering to cyclists.

So getting to the Bicycle Bar Cawl would involve riding to Ainslie, drinking for a day, getting drunk at the end of it, and then either riding back along the Parkway after dark while drunk or finding a safe way home which is unlikely to be a cyclist friendly bus.

Basic logistics says its not going to happen for me.
But thanks for playing.

(Sorry I took so long to respond, but I’ve been in paid meetings)

Paid meetings. That’s a gem.

Paid Rioting after? Or is that what you do for lunch?

Winner.

Well, judging by the smiles the lad has obviously learned not to bark now.

Can’t leave you 2 alone for a few minutes eh ?

I hear the PCYC boxing ring screaming

I’ll buy you a pint, Tylers. We can sit on the naughty mat.

*LOL*

Oh God, the realisation has just hit me…what have I done *sob*

If you’re a public servant, they’re paying you for bulk lots (fortnights) of your time, and then send you into meetings.
I occasionally get non-dayjob meetings set up by former uni colleagues, where I make more in less than an hour than I normally do in a day.
These are ‘paid meetings’ instead of the everyday meetings.

Kids:
The ‘useless but interesting’ hobbies you have at Uni, even though people don’t need them at the time, they may come to appreciate your work years after the fact.
Eventually, someone may buy out your entitlement the end result.

Tylers:
You didn’t think all of my arguments were for -you-, did you?
There’s a whole _audience_ here, who I get to undermine you in front of. 🙂

Check it out, the ladies are having a scrag-fight. Maybe they’ll end up in the jelly-wrestling pit and we can all make a few quick bucks.

Oh cool Skid – I’m about to go to a “paid” meeting too. Oh then again, I can’t say I’ve been to a “non-paid” meeting of late.

Glad you felt the necessity to explain yourself to me – kinda sad really, sort of confirms your low self-esteem, which is not a laughing matter. My last post was to make a bit of black humour based on your previous comments. I don’t take your random accusations of having a “history to get things wrong” to heart. But don’t forget, I’ve never claimed to always be right, unlike what some of your behaviour reflects.
That is the point of this open forum – to give view points, and run the risk of being shot down by snipers like you for no real reason other than your own boredom. Guess that what makes you a “veteran rioter”. I’ve given you some more material to come back at me with now, so enjoy it.

Anyway, have fun at the Bicycle Bar “Cawl” champ.
