    Smith fined for drunken behaviour

    December 07, 2007 PARRAMATTA half-back Tim Smith has been slapped with a $1000 fine and a booze ban following his latest alcohol fuelled incident.

    The 22-year-old met with Eels chief executive Denis Fitzgerald, coach Michael Hagan and football manager Andrew Hill after being accused of harassing a Sydney grandfather while drunk on Sunday.

    "We had a very positive meeting with Tim and he was very sorry that his drunkenness and actions let down the club and its fans," Fitzgerald said.

    "He telephoned the complainant to apologise for any of his actions or words that may have offended the man and his family."

    The club has banned Smith from drinking alcohol until the end of the 2008 season and will donate his fine to charity.

    "Tim admitted he has a problem with alcohol and will continue to have counselling sessions with a leading specialist in alcohol related behaviour," Hagan said.

    The Eels threatened to terminate Smith's contract last year after a series of alcohol-related incidents.

    That's why it's been 21 years since their last Premiership. Piss poor club culture.

    Name one club that has been happy to cut loose a star player. They all talk the talk but when push comes to shove it is only those who are marginal players or expendable that are given the rocket.

    Until someone shows some balls and gets rid of a star player this sort of thing will continue to happen.

    "very sorry", "counselling", "donating money to charity", "off the grog for the season" etc Heard it all before and it will mean nothing. If it wasn't for the media this wouldn't even be dealt with by the club. :blah: :blah: :blaugh: :blaugh: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah:
