Tricky Ricky feels sorry for Dave Furner

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.

Never had the pleasure of meeting RS in town during the 80’s and 90’s. Steve Walters was a common sight at the City Club, so drunk he couldn’t walk.

Give him a break. We were all dickheads back then.

I remember him and his ‘posse’ cruising around the food and wine frolic (maybe 1990?) after everything had closed down but all the drunks were still left. I think there was a fight every 10m or so as he passed by, but not sure if he was involved in any of them. The cops were wandering around in groups of about 10. Ah, the good old days

(in my defence I was not one of the drunks left around, I was working for the organisers)

Yeah, I saw that as well, not to mention his teammate the late Dave Woods roaring drunk and having a slash in full view of everybody while the Frolic was in full swing. And yes it was 1990, a few months after the Raiders won the ’89 GF and they thought they were all hot s***.

To be fair, back in the day, after that 89 GF, they were!

Gee’s I would hate for anyone to hold a grudge 20 years down the track. He was a footy moron then – yes, now I dare say he has changed somewhat, perhaps like bouncers or police have since the late 80’s and early 90’s……

Oh, that’s okay then *rolls eyes*

I am somewhat dazed at the thought of tricky trying to muscle his way into an ANU Economics Ball!

He didn’t care what the event was, he’d got in in his head that some mate of his was in the bar. (this was before mobiles were common)

I had to put up with him and his ‘mates’ as the Ops Manager at the Raiders Leagues Club in Mawson during then ’89, ’90 grand finals. The terms of endearment used above are much to kind. Brad Clyde was the only one you would piss on if on fire. Walters boys probably the worst. IMHO.

Please stay away Ricky.

Daley was pretty ordinary as well…

And who could forget his famous terry towelling tough guy muscle shirt? He thought that he looked cooler than penguin s***.

I think that in future we should call him “Snap-on” Stuart, because he is a special type of tool.

Or Ricky and another Raiders legend standing at a bar taking a piss. So classy.

Have also heard ’round the traps that Wayne Kerr is his best mate.
