Todd Carney – Terminated

By johnboy 7 August 2008 51

Word coming through that Todd Carney’s contract has been terminated.

Lock up your daughters and watch your backs, he’s got nothing to lose now.

UPDATE: In a press conference Todd has blamed us in the media (that includes all of you lot) and the club for treating him unfairly.

What’s Your opinion?

He’s an idiot.

What you reap, is what you sow.

He should have been sacked last year

Yes I was thinking much the same myself.

If he goes over to France he’ll be representing all Australians! Egad!

Somehow I don’t think the French will put up with his sh*t for very long!

I’d heard that the NFL was having serious problems with off-field behaviour in the 90’s, and decided to require new recruits to reach a certain grade point average before being signed up to a team – can anyone substantiate this or provide more info?

Sounds like a great idea to me. Instead of telling youngsters “you don’t have to do well at school, there’s always a career in sports”, cut that off too so a good education is the only way to go.

Unfortunately, losers like Carney are also role models (like it or not) for younger league players and fans, and they also represent Canberra. I for one, even though I don’t even follw the sport, don’t want a wanker like him representing Canberra, or setting such a crap example to the kids of this fine town.

If he goes over to France he’ll be representing all Australians! Egad!

Maybe the news should stop worrying about the prat. I’m sure there’s more important things than what twats get up to at the ABN.

I think the point is that the Raiders and the NRL have a huge financial interest in presenting their players as role models to wider society.

The thoughtful fan base that wants to expand the game would also want a piece of the viral marketing this opens up.

Todd was getting in the way of this lucrative opportunity.

There was always a trade off between what he brought the team and what he subtracted from it, and he just kept stacking things on the wrong side of the balance.

He might play Rugby League well (I wouldn’t know, i don’t watch it), but I think that the NRL has a duty to the wider community (that done give a $hit about league) to make sure he isn’t on out TV or news papers for being a twat.

But he plays good footy, isn’t that what you people want to watch?

tylersmayhem 12:19 pm 08 Aug 08

And he’s a f**kwit, really!

Deadmandrinking 12:12 pm 08 Aug 08

What’s with the whole barking at women thing? Is Carney telling them he’s a dog?

I think it’s more a problem with people holding sport in too high regards. It shouldn’t be a moral representative of society. It’s entertainment, really.
