Tricky Ricky feels sorry for Dave Furner

By johnboy 13 March 2012 23

If one gets talking to Canberra men of their late 30s and early 40s it is truly astonishing the number who will relate a tale of seeing former Raiders great Ricky Stuart being punched in the head out in Civic for being a total cock.

I myself once spent a few hours on the door of the late Private Bin for an ANU Economics Ball and felt the full cock effect from Ricky who wanted to come in without paying. On that occasion no-one punched him, but the attraction to the concept has dwelt with me ever since.

And so it’s with mixed feelings I watch the latest Foxsports effort of Ricky Stuart to show sympathy for the Raiders coach David Furner.

Because the only thing Raiders related you’ll hear more than “I saw Ricky Stuart getting punched in the head” is “Furner’s out for Stuart if they don’t win a lot of games before round eight”.

What does it take to get the arse from the Raiders? David Furner seen talking at half time with another dud, NSW coach Ricky Stewart, what ever they spoke about worked a treat for the other mob Sydney City (Easts) as they performed event worse in the second half but still managed to beat the Raiders. How bad are they going (the Raiders?) when they can’t beat a side that holds the ball for less than 40% of their sets for the entire game.
The only way that David Furner will get the arse is if the supporters sack the entire board of the Raiders. Vote through your pocket, fold it twice and push it back deeper into your pocket.

Seems a shame when some of these kids could be anything under a decent coach! If only!

Players like Stewart have paved the way for a very poor off field reputation, one that is now having an adverse on the sport.

If you’re going to bag him, at least spell his name correctly.

As a former player, I agree that some of the high jinks ‘back in the day’ were pretty ordinary. Sticky is a great bloke, but he couldn’t handle his drink back then and certainly made himself unpopular with some of his behaviour when pissed.

Karma came back in spades for poor Stick (often on the same night) because he couldn’t fight for shite and he got sat on his arse more times than I can remember – which made everyone laugh.

So if you’re going to dredge up 20 year old drunken incidents by a bunch of kids, remember that every weekend something terrible happens in town with bashings, glassings, stabbings, etc, which is a lot worse than what we ever got up to.

Carn the Raiders.

“by a bunch of kids?”. I wasn’t aware that males between the ages of 18-30 were children? Certainly would make a lot of sense though, given some of the off field behaviour of former & current players.

Personally, I find no coincidence in the Raiders & several other NRL clubs, finding it extremely difficult to attract major sponsorship in 2012.
