Lying for Todd Carney?

By johnboy 24 July 2008 63

Todd Carney is already entering the language. Just a few minutes ago I went to the smallest room in the house to have a Carney.

The Herald Sun is now reporting that his former partner in crime, Steve Irwin, (the League player not the stingray annoyer) is dropping a bucket on last year’s events.

    Irwin said Raiders management asked him to cover-up Carney’s guilt.

    He was told to lie to police by saying he asked Carney – who had his licence suspended at the time – to drive home after a night out after consuming several drinks himself.

    More seriously, Irwin alleged Canberra asked him to tell police Carney was not drunk – claims which could force police to reopen their investigation.

    Raiders chairman John McIntyre last night aggressively denied the allegations.

UPDATED: The ABC reports that police are investigating.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The Canberra Times is running with the club’s denials.

So if it happens elsewhere it is all ok then. Good to know.

No one raised any issues about the plod thing. Call them what you like, just not late for dinner.

The donut thing is pretty poor though. Really demonstrates a lack of a mature independent thought process and a reliance on American TV stereotypes for your information.

What happens at ABN happens at virtually every popular bar across the ACT. People regularly screw up a good thing

So let me get this clear? OK to called a public servant a pube? Not OK to call Canberra’s finest plod? Just checking.

Only thing looking like enforcement I have ever seen around All Bar Nun has been the bouncers tipping a jug of water over a drunk and calling him “f%$& wit”. Saw that one Sunday arvo from flatheads. I have just given up on going to ABN.
