The Canberra Raiders have decided they’ve had enough Josh Dugan and are still thinking about Blake Ferguson:

As a result of the meeting the board decided to terminate the contract of Josh Dugan effective immediately.

Blake Ferguson will remain at the club, but is stood down from playing with the Raiders indefinitely.

Ferguson will be required to continue counselling he was currently undertaking, until he has shown satisfactory progress to the clubs coaching staff and management before he is reinstated. Ferguson has also received a suspended fine of $10,000.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said the decision to terminate Dugan’s contract comes after a number of breaches.

“After being presented with a number of breaches in club policy by Josh the board decided that they had no choice but to terminate his NRL contract,” Furner said. “The Club must take into account our players, members and Sponsors and the damage to our clubs brand.

It might save time to get rid of every player with a twitter hashtag tattooed to their body.

Rather than what he deserved, it’s been suggested he got exactly what he wanted – a release. Not happy with his decision to stay in Cbr, apparently (according to the voice on the 2KY wireless machine yesterday).

His behaviour was self-inflicted so the twatter got what he deserved.Will these meatheads never learn?

Why restrict to hashtags? Might struggle to find 13 uninked neanderthals, I suppose.

I know some quality people with tats.

Less so with hashtags on their skin.
