Ferguson goes full Carney

By johnboy - 29 August 2013 24

Yesterday’s man Blake Ferguson is putting together a fair old rap sheet in the Canberra Times.

Another complete toolbag emerging from the Raiders youth development.

They really need to look very hard at that.

What’s Your opinion?

I agree these blokes are fools.

But fairs fair – if you’re going to bag the Raiders fools, JB, at least do the honourable thing and do the same with the Brumbies. Your silence on the Brumbies fools in O’Connor recently was piss weak.

Players who commit these offences should be put on a sub $100k wage for a few years, regardless of the club or contract. the rest of the money they should get paid goes to a charity or something. Problem is canberra will release him, he’ll go get big money elsewhere.

What I find amusing is that he was caught driving a Yaris. That aside, he, like a number of other ex-Raiders players, are, to say the least, little more than Neanderthals. Equally as disappointing is that he’ll quite possibly be given the opportunity to display his on field talent at another club.

So Ferguson of Dorkuson fame on ‘approved’ compassionate leave gets booked at Mittagong at 2.15pm, continues the trip (someone else hopefully driving now) and arrives at Long Bay no earlier than 3.30pm to see the old boy released from the can. Spends an hour with him before making his way to meet Carney to get on the piss. Love him or hate him at least he had the decency to uphold family values and spend quality time with the old boy! cough-bullshit-cough .(assuming the Prison do process releases on weekends)

As an aside, any decent recruiting process should help to filter out the potential bad eggs. Perhaps the Raiders recruitment policy needs to focus on more that just player ability.

…Never mind, we’ll all have the last laugh when these morons hit 35+ and can’t play football anymore, have spent all their money on alcohol/drugs, and have all the employment prospects of a sedimentary rock.

At which point they become everyone’s problem. Hooray. Sad, grey blokes perched at the club bar using their remaining neurons to “I coulda been a contender” everyone else and bitch about how their ex-cheerleader missus keeps hassling him for child support for a kid he suspects isn’t is anyway.

I dunno about Ferguson, but that Grayson Goodwin bloke is an absolute legend! What an inspirational figure! What a totally self-evident genius! And yet still only a Pancho, to Ferguson’s Cisco Kid….a Tonto, to his Lone Ranger!!

And “Grayson Goodwin”, too, stone the crows and starve the flamin’ lizards A man can’t help his name, but stuff me, what a moniker! And with brothers Bronx and Bryson of all things!!! They should all be appearing in Downton Abbey, with handles like that.

Laugh? I nearly sh*t!

They should just play him at Mounties for the rest of his contract. If he doesn’t want to turn up to training or rehab or whatever then fine him or dock his wages. If he plays up outside the club (arrests etc) then fine him the maximum allowed and get the NRL to suspend him.

But don’t cave and reward good behaviour by flicking him. These guys are acting up because it is a way to get themselves to another club. He was happy to sign the contract, hold him to it.

Ferguson goes full Carney…

That’s unfair – he was speeding and unlicensed, but not drunk.

Mr Evil 12:43 pm 29 Aug 13

The way I see it, the main problem is that when a club like The Raiders finally sacks these worthless gangsta-wannbe amoeba, another less scrupulous club always seems to pick them up faster than a well-known Labor politician can misuse a corporate credit card to pick up hookers.

Obviously good hand/eye coordination matters more than good social skills and having a brain bigger than a sparrow’s eyeball!

Never mind, we’ll all have the last laugh when these morons hit 35+ and can’t play football anymore, have spent all their money on alcohol/drugs, and have all the employment prospects of a sedimentary rock.

I said it about Carney, and I said it about Dugan. Now I’ll say it about Ferguson. He’s a d!ckhead and we’re better off without him. Yes, it pains me when they turn up at Bruce and play well against the Raiders, but not so much that I think any of them are worth keeping and putting up with their crap. They’re all brainless idiots.

Why is this so? Can we blame the Raiders youth development program? Probably not, but rather the culture of NRL that takes these young, not very bright blokes and gives them too much money and time on their hands.

+ lots.

Young hooligans paid too much money for doing too little work and told that they are invincible far too often.

I do recall some time ago, reading of a team that had an agreement with a local building contract that gave their young players an apprenticeship on a part time basis. It taught them the value of having a real job and gave them something to fall back on if they didn’t make it in the big boys league.

Don’t think that the Raiders don’t do this also – I know someone who takes on their boys. The feedback I hear is that the Raiders don’t really care about the young men getting any meaningful qualification – if they pass or fail – just that they are seen to be doing the right thing.
