The Raiders have announced they’ve had enough of Blake Ferguson:
The Canberra Raiders board of directors met today to determine the future of Blake Ferguson, with a unanimous decision to terminate his contract with the club.
“The board were left with little choice but to terminate Blake Ferguson’s contract, after several breaches of club policy,” Raiders CEO Don Furner said. “We are sorry that it had to come to this, despite providing ongoing support to Blake with the best welfare and counselling services available to us, in the end we were unable to continue doing so given the current circumstances.”
“The Raiders will continue to ensure we uphold our strong position in relation to player behaviour and welfare, for our members, sponsors and other stakeholders.”
We hear he’s already on his way to Thailand, eschewing the Mad Monday celebrations, where no doubt he will bring much credit to Australia.
Word is Ferguson couldn’t be bothered taking up the invitation to front the board.
Next year’s Foreshore will surely miss his cascades of spit.
