Breaking news, everyone: a footy player has done something really gross and stupid.
Cronulla Sharks player Todd Carney has come under fire after a photo of him engaged in quite vulgar urinal-related antics has gone viral. To put it quite bluntly, he’s pissed in his own mouth. You can see the highly NSFW here, if you know…you’ve finished your breakfast and whatnot.
It’s the latest in a long-line of alcohol-related antics that Carney has found himself embroiled in in recent years – there was a drink driving charge in 2006 and vandalism in 2009. He was even caught peeing on another dude in a Canberra night-club in 2008 – so maybe this incident of simply doing it to himself is a massive testament to character growth. Or, you know, footy players being drunken, highly-paid morons.
It’s more bad news for the Cronulla Sharks, who are already enduring one of their worst seasons in history. They’re yet to issue a statement. Neither have the NRL or Carney – although it’s safe to assume the latter is probably busy brushing his own teeth.
You can carry on with your Sunday morning now. But maybe avoid the apple juice.
WORDS: HARRISON CARTWRIGHT.
