    Dumb but its very easy to speed on that road. I always do late at night, obviously I need to be more careful.

    The good news is he wasn't hammered.

    Just the kind of exposure the club needs at the moment.

    I wonder if Lexus would consider a sponsorship arrangement?
    They got a free plug in the article. Imagine what a paid sponsorship could do.
    Perhaps all our players could get done for speeding in their Lexus over the course of the year?

    Here's a question why are Police commenting on this?

    One question - why is a 'man' in his late twenties only on a provisional licence? Has he had a number of previous serious infringements, or is he just one of these knobs who don't worry about getting their learners as soon as they're old enough? ::)

    He can ask Kingy for tips on what bus to catch.

    Bit of a non-issue tbh, as long as he is ready to play football I couldn't care less.

    Any bad press is an issue for the club... another step backwards from a prospective major sponsor.

    He prob just has problems reading the speedo cause of his beady eyes. Also explains why he drops the ball.

    I don't think that this event will have any noticeable effect on our search for a sponsor.

    There are plenty of these events every year from players from every team. If possible sponsors were that worried about similar events to the one in question then it's doubtful that they'd sponsor any football club.

    Ever since his contract upgrade he has been involved in some silly stuff. I just hope his ego gets well and truly deflated so he can get back to playing rugby league.

    Geez there are alot of dumb footballers. They get paid about 5 or 6 times the average wage to act like dickheads.

    Didn't say that. The club certainly needs to acknowledge the event & give Choc a slap on the wrist for it but I just don't think that it'll make that much of an impact on our search for a sponsor.

    No need to make a wave out of a ripple.
