    So the Roosters chief executive, Steve Noyce, immediately and before further investigation, responds saying the allegations are "offensive and untrue".  Even more so than Friend's possession of Valium, this statement gives a clear indication into Noyce's credibility, the culture at the Roosters, and into the extent that the Roosters would investigate any allegations.  As does his lack of any knowledge that a key employee responsible for player welfare had a criminal record for drug supply.  

    That Carney was the player involved with Friend at the time of the Valium possession is hardly a surprise.

    And down the drain goes Brian Smith's reputation as a disciplinarian.

    Well the Eastern Suburbs cocaine supplier was caught not long ago. I guess they've had to turn to other areas??  ;D
