These in from Adam:

Someone got hit so hard they saw Green… and Red&Blue.

The police interaction was particularly pleasant, but they didn’t have anything to say about the incident


So which of you readers can invent the best fictional back story?

UPDATE: We now have a statement from ACT Policing:

ACT Policing is investigating an altercation at the Canberra Raiders Sports Club in Gungahlin last night (Thursday April 25).

At about 8.45pm yesterday police were called to the Gungahlin Canberra Raiders Sports Club where the ACT Ambulance Service was treating an unconscious 40-year-old male. The male had sustained serious head injuries following an altercation with a 26-year-old male at the venue.

The injured male was conveyed to Canberra Hospital for treatment and is now in a serious but stable condition.

The 26-year-old male involved in the altercation has provided information to police regarding the incident. A number of witnesses to the incident have also provided information to police.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident yesterday evening and has not yet spoken to police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

In the absence of a media release we’re pretty sure it’s not that serious.

I’m glad serious head injuries can still be joked about…

I have no morals – I’ll play!

“Earlier today, Police and Animal Control officers were called to a disturbance outside the Raiders Club in Gunghalin, where an as-yet-unnamed senior Canberra Raiders player was attacked by a pack of Golden Labradors.

After a two hour stand off, Animal Control Officers were finally able to contain the vicious pack of Golden Labradors after agreeing to their demands for “walkies”, and have now taken them to the ACT Pound for containment and processing.

The Canberra Daily Times Telegraph has been informed that what initially appeared to have been a random, unprovoked attack, is now being investigated by Police as a revenge attack for an episode in which a former Canberra Raiders player attempted to force a Golden Labrador named Todd, to lick his genitals in a drunken prank.

Canberra Raiders management released a statement at midday to say that as far as they are concerned, the Police are barking up the wrong tree as far as the investigation is concerned, and have denied any wrongdoing by members of the team.

The Canberra Kennel Club and the manufacturers of PAL dog food, have been contacted for further comment, but neither party has so far responded to our request for comment.”

Don’t be too sure, JB.

Todd Carney is somehow involved of that much I’m certain (figuratively speaking)

I’d probably wait for a statement from police confirming the condition of the person hit before asking for jokes JB.
