    NRL player 'lit man's genitals on fire'


    NRL's notorious bad boy Todd Carney and a friend are accused of burning a man's buttocks, scrotum and upper thigh, after deliberately setting his pants on fire, the Seven Network reports.

    The newly-signed Sydney Roosters footballer had been holidaying with mates at Airlie Beach in north Queensland when the alleged incident occurred.

    Proserpine Hospital confirmed a man was admitted for burns on New Year's Day.

    Queensland Police have also confirmed the injuries, but say they will only investigate if the victim makes a formal complaint.

    There's no suggestion the attack was malicious but Carney has an infamous past.

    The 23-year-old former Canberra Raiders player has been convicted for drink-driving, arrested after a high-speed police chase, charged with malicious damage, accused of urinating on a man at a Canberra nightclub, and even been banned from his home town of Goulburn.

    The Raiders sacked him, and just as it looked like his career could be all but over, the Roosters offered him a lifeline.

    Carney is due to take the field in the next few weeks, pending the result of an inquiry now underway at the club.

    This is bloody awesome !! Not that the bloke got burnt, but how this bloke can attract trouble is amazingly funny, I guess they were trying to light a fart and it could cost him his career. On the down side, if he does get the punt, it free's up big money for Foran

    Pants on fire? The victim wasn't Mr Bird perhaps?

    He might have been on the turps with Julian O'Neill, didn't he try and set a guy in a dolphin suit on fire once ?

    You keep saying that. And even after another incident like this? He hasn't got to the trials on his NRL return and he has done it again. Carney is an idiot who refuses to take responsibility and fits in with the Rooster's culture perfectly. Leave him there.

    I guess Carney wouldn't piss on his mate if he was on fire? Oh yeah, that is one of his normal party tricks and I guess his aim must have been off... ;)

    My brother, who is in his 50's now was telling me a bloke he went to school with did this party trick at their year 12 formal. He ended up burning a hole through the arse of his hired suit, not sure how he explained it to his mother.

    It beckons the question. If bodily gases can spontaneously combust like so, what level of alcohol must be in the system.

    I bet he was really pulling the ladies that night !

    More likely that they were in a circle pulling each others fingers

    They were pulling something that looked like a finger - only smaller.

    I know it was just a prank but here we go again with clubs pandering to Carney. When the Chooks don't have a sponsor left and their fans are too embarrassed to admit to being one will that be enough? He gets paid 10 times what his mates get and there is a reason for that - his good behaviour is part of the deal and of RL running a high profile business.

    "Sydney Roosters coach Brian Smith has defended controversial recruit Todd Carney over his involvement in an alleged incident which saw a man admitted to hospital with burns to his buttocks, labelling the media coverage of the story 'ridiculous'.

    Smith confirmed recent reports suggesting the injured man is a friend of Carney's and that the injuries were the result of New Year's Eve skylarking.

    And while he concedes the actions of all involved were 'pretty stupid', the veteran coach claimed the incident had been blown out of all proportion.

    "We've actually got ourselves into a ridiculous position as a sport now where blokes are doing things ... that very many young men would have done at some stages in their lives, and we understand they're people who are in the limelight and whatever but it's got to the point of it being ridiculous," Smith told Sky Sports Radio on Friday."
