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.
