Canberra Raiders half Todd Carney has today officially been cut loose by the Raiders club.
Club CEO Don Furner has confirmed this morning that Todd Carney has been sacked after the Raiders board deliberated over his future after a series off off-field scandals and incidents.
A seriously talented upcoming NRL star, the decision must have been a hard one for the Canberra Raiders. Todd Carney has been protected by the Raiders several times and it seems his off-field behaviour is beyond control or repair.
The Raiders have previously thrown Todd Carney a lifeline, last year pushing Steve Irwin into the firing line to take the fall for Carney and most recently throwing Bronx Goodwin to the wolves and protecting Todd Carney once again.
However after repeated offences off the field, it seems the Raiders have had enough.
The NRL has told the Raiders they will support the club and not allow Todd Carney to be registered with another club for the 2009 season.
It’s expected Carney will seek out a spot in the UK Super League for 2009 and possibly return to the NRL the year after.
