    Back training with the NRL squad.

    No doubt he will be back playing next weekend. That should really teach him a lesson. Maybe I'm being to cynical, and the 2 weeks off has really cured his alcoholism. Roosters and NRL attitude stinks on this whole saga, Carney has to have photos of Politis AND Gallop with the goat.

    Teflon Todd has a nicer ring to it. All good news, guarantees the rooster will go no where fast as we keep hearing TT is causing all sorts of rifts in the club. The roosters obviously do not care one bit about his welfare just want him back playing No doubt he will fall off the wagon again in no time, he doesn't see he has done anything wrong and has suffered no penalty/punishment. Total joke, roosters & nrl.

    Well, when their season was going down the toilet they were always going to rush him back. What I can't understand is how a guy like Watts can attract and keep a babe like Shannon Kiss.

    You don't cure "depression" in 2 weeks. So I'd suggest he never had it in the first place, just bunny hopping on a serious mental condition to obtain sympathy votes.

    Coming back this early just ensures that he will fall off the wagon again soon and next time it will be the end of him (unless Politis tickles gallops tummy again)

    Maybe they are force feeding him disulfiram.

    I still don't class him as an alcoholic. A 20 something kid, yeah...but that's about it. A country kid, who got stardom too soon (like that bloke from AFL)

    Carney was injured for the past two weeks, that's why he's ready to come back now.

    He's got at least another 4 years worth of last chances

    Carney's got the photo of the coach and his mum and has to be selected.

    We beat them with Teflon so let him play and lets hope the Cap Roarters keep Smith for a few more years.

    just cant see the issue here people. He was drunk but not disorderly. This deal is between carney and the club,He only let himself and his employer down, they set there own standards and while it may well come back to bite them what they do is up to them

    If the chooks want him to play why do we care, they are the people responsible for the culture at there club,

    I find the whole animosity toward Carney mind boggling at times. While the double standards are evident at times and that is more about Gallop than carney anyway, other times its just not relevent

    What next, Todd Carney should be rubbed out as someone saw him buy a bottle of wine for a secret santa present...............disgraceful

    Each of you answer this what if. You approach your current employer and ask for time off with pay to visit your mum. Instead of visiting your mum you get on the piss. That same employer finds out what you have done, do you expect to keep your job?

    I don't sign a code of conduct and I'm not paid 6 figure sums to endorse products to impressional children, so I'm not employed under the same conditions as Inadvertant Todd.

    I don't think Carney should be publicly flogged, my issue is more with Double Standard Gallop and the NRL preferential treatment of poor misunderstood Todd. It's pathetic.

    Couldn't care less to be honest. I worry about some people here because they can get so angry over things which don't really effect you and it could have a detrimental effect on your life expentancy!!! ;)

    The #1 way (just ahead of anger) to decrease your life expectancy is to worry too much.
