Aussie Football Player Does The Unthinkable [Pic]

“My phone got lost” says Carney”s friend

The person who took a compromising photo of Todd Carney at a urinal has told the player”s agent, David Riolo, that he did not upload the photo to the net.

Todd Carney did not, in fact, drink his own urine, his agent has been at pains to clarify on Monday morning.

Its a set-up, like when people stand in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, David Riolo told Fairfax Media”s radio station 2UE.

Todd Carney”s infamous “bubbling” photo.

Riolo admitted that his client had posed for a regrettable picture but said that Carney had never intended for it to be made public.

Todds paid a very, very heavy price for a photo that he didnt want out there or upload himself. It was supposed to be kept between mates,” Riolo said.

His attempt to counter an explosion of bad press came as Cronulla Sharks players left a two-hour crisis meeting at Remondis Stadium, their first since Carney was sacked after the emergence of a picture of the player engaging in the lewd act in a nightclub toilet.

The team”s planned 9am training session was cancelled because anofficial declared players were not in the right head space.

Riolo confirmed that his client was feeling betrayed after being dismissed by the Sharks on Sunday.

When asked to confirm that it was one of Carneys “friends” who released the photo, Riolo replied: I use that word loosely.

The person who took the photo contacted me this morning by text and said My phone got lost supposedly and thats how the photo got out. It was meant to be a joke.

Riolo said the incident should not have been a sacking offence and said that the clubs managers had acted too quickly.

Hes now got a photo of himself gone worldwide in not a very pleasant setting thats going to be on the net for his family and everyone to see for future generations. That in itself is a very big price to pay.

Riolo denied reports this morning that the five-eighth had committed two previous, potentially more serious breaches of Cronullas code of conduct earlier this year that may have made this weekends sacking inevitable.

Theres been no serious allegations that Im aware of that have come across my desk in writing, he said. I get 1000 emails every time Todd steps out.

He said a legal challenge to Carneys sacking appeared unlikely.

Sharks players started arriving at Remondis Stadium from 8am and were tight-lipped as they entered the ground.

It is understood that some players are unhappy with Carney for putting himself in a position to again be sacked while others were disappointed with the clubs decision to sack him immediately.

Bear Grylls, train your apprentice.

    I love it when they say that they never intended for it to go public. Well no poo! Does that make any difference?

    If you`re the type of person who likes to drink his own piss, then fine. It makes no odds whether you do it in the privacy of your own home or infront of 1000 paps, it`s still drating retarded

    What impact does this have on his athletic abilities? None. People are getting bent out of shape for something stupid (fyi i don`t drink pee). We need to stop pretending like people in sports are role models and realize they are just very competitive people that like to hit others. Nothing more, nothing less. They are not to be revered, they are not special, and they should not be treated better than others.

    People do know that there`s many groups that say drinking one`s own pee is a "good, healthy" thing?

    So to recap the story:
    - He`s PRETENDING to drink it (forced perspective)
    - The guy who TOOK the photo claims he "lost his phone" not the guy in it.
    - He got FIRED for this? How is that even remotely possible?

    @jorshdan: Aussie Rules `Football` is a whole other game :-)

    @5Cats The NRL is trying to clean up their image, this guy previously set a guys pants on fire, was caught fighting, and has been photographed drunk on many occasions. He was accepted back into the NRL on a strict behaviour clause. Basically one strike and out.

    @Beazlebubble: Well, that`s what I figured, but was too lazy to look it up :-) Thanks!

    No doubt some other team will hire him, at less pay of course.

    As if people still get caught by things like this. Then again, what`s worse? I have now a zero-tolerance policy for photographs. When I`m old the only photographs of me in the big photo depository cloud will be those taken of me unawares (or those taken for professional reasons etc.). So that`s kind of sad. :(
