Car­ney de­serves sup­port

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I WISH to com­ment on the al­leged bad be­hav­iour of our top NRL foot­ballers.

I see Todd Car­ney as a tar­get be­cause of his mak­ing a com­mit­ment to stop drink­ing.

Since he was pulled over and breathal­ysed, mak­ing a name for him­self, the me­dia h a v e d o n e a S p a n i s h In­qui­si­tion-style at­tempt to ruin his cred­i­bil­ity.

I can un­der­stand Benji Mar­shall be­ing up­set at 3 a m b e i n g t a u n t e d b y would-be could-be heroes but I have watched Benji play and he is no in­no­cent when it comes to vi­o­lence on and off the field.

Ev­ery game I watched Benji play, in­clud­ing the World Cup, he was in­volved in fights which in­clude cheap shots. The way I see it I would rather give Todd Car­ney all the help in man­ag­ing his drink­ing prob­lem and send Benji back to New Zealand never to re­turn as a vi­o­lent visi­tor. DAVE KENNEDY,

Her­mit Park.
