In a bizarre turn of events the CT is reporting that Mr Stanhope has made a last minute offer to Raider Todd Carney ahead of a decision on his playing future expected today Mr Stanhope has offered him the chance to be a sporting ambassador for Canberra’s youth if he stays with the Canberra Raiders.
Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation Andrew Barr also waded in and has urged Carney to remain loyal.
So, Mr Stanhope is happy to reward Carney just to keep him here, even given his long history of misdemenours. And do we need someone like Carney as a sporting ambassor?
Let him go I say, he’s only going to go next year anyway.
