Todd Carney writes off his career

By johnboy - 4 August 2008 21

Todd Carney was in an interesting place over the weekend.

The Raiders were wavering on his counter-offer (to accept all their conditions except a playing ban), and a large chunk of the public had received his open letter rather well.

So what does he do? Return to Goulburn, get on the grog and get kicked out of the Goulburn Workers’ Club.

If you made this stuff up people would say it lacked credibility.

The SMH has the story but I believe our local WIN was responsible for breaking it.

The other side of the story: (Fairfax)

Chris Anthony was celebrating his 50th birthday with a group of people including Carney when his son, Mitch, was involved in a fight on Saturday night at the Goulburn Workers Club – just hours after an impassioned plea by Carney to be spared the axe over previous misdemeanours.

“I’m sick of people flinging mud at the kid that’s just not true,” Chris Anthony said. “It’s a load of crap what’s been reported. He had a couple of beers, that’s all. He wasn’t drunk, he’s not that stupid.

“Give him some credit. The kid’s no angel and he’s had some troubles, but the thing on Saturday is a load of crap and the mud is sticking.

“They walked into the club and some bloke’s just gone past and stared at Todd, just trying to stir him up. Mitch just stepped in and said, ‘Go away, we don’t want any dramas.’ The bouncer has just over-reacted. He just didn’t want Todd in there because people were going to try to stir him up.”

Raiders should dump him, dump him and dump him. Not so much for this incident but for his stance since being given the 5 point plan.

Then the NRL will deregister him and he’ll go to play Super League or Union in Europe, thus filling in a spot in a team that would have otherwise poached one of Australia’s other (less douchebag) stars.

Interesting. Beat up or not, I think if I was under this much scrutiny, and I was out with my “mates”, and one of them was being a moron, I’d tell him to shut the hell up, or I’d go somewhere else.

Meanwhile, I bet his manager is tearing his/her hair out, and telling him to go and play Nintendo for a few weeks.

This is the biggest media beatup ever. I think Carney is an idiot but he shouldn’t be instigated for something he was just present for but had nothing to do with.

That’s one almight large ‘fcku you’ to the raiders.

Sounds like the alcohol ban’s going well then….

; )

He’s pissing his career up the wall (or has that joke been done?)

If WIN was the one that caused this then that’s the building we’ll all go and piss on!!!

They’re not even that cool when they look just like ten million other peoples’ tats.

Note to the kids:

Tats might be cool but they make you stand out like dogs nuts.

He really needs to buy some fake ears and a moustache to wear when he goes out on the grog. That’d fix all the problems.

johnboy 9:22 pm 04 Aug 08

Or to show some leadership at the slightest sign of trouble.

Deano 9:21 pm 04 Aug 08

To be fair, he didn’t actually do anything and wasn’t actually kicked out of the club. One of his party was asked to leave and when that person refused to do so, the entire group, including Carney, was told to leave, which they did.

A bit of a beat up of a story, but still, if you were currently in a bit of strife regarding alcohol it would make sense to steer clear of the clubs for a while.

He such a naughty boy

Like I said in the last related thread, Carney’s an asshole.
