My favorite forum member is 100%Green. Why? Because anyone who can convince my wife who runs two watch shops and doesnt realy like the Raiders to buy me a limited edition centenary of league Raiders watch is alright in my books.

It's hard god-damn work being a Raiders supporter!

Neither. We really don't have any players near the talent of Carney coming through IMO. And if we go through another ten years of mediocrity I don't think we'll be around by the end of it.

Raiders sack Carney

In a short statement, Furner said a final decision had only been made today after Carney and his manager David Riolo had met with the board.

"The board met and discussed Todd with his manager and Todd was granted his request to put his case to the board," Furner said.

"Regrettably they (the board) chose to terminate his contract."

I'm shattered and happy at the same time.

Shattered because we all know the potential that he had.

But I'm happy because we can move on without us living on the edge of our seat wondering when he would screw up next. Kudos to management for having balls big enough to do what most other clubs would not.

I expect this to really hurt us this year, but from next year on we might be a better TEAM.

Another Wasted Talent!
(Julian O'Neil Club)

He has had plenty of chances, How many does he want?

It is in the best interests of the club to cut him.

He will now bounce from one club to another until he can't play anymore and in 20yrs, We will say Carney 'Oh well another one who had everything given to him on a plate and blew it!'

it is sad, But there is always someone ready to take his opportunity, Go Marc Herbert!

the nrl MUST back this decision the stand him down for 2 years IMO, they cannot allow a contract to be registered with another NRL club within the contract period we had him for.

Reluctantly, its the right decision, i am gutted. He's the player who could have led the raiders back to glory, and thanks to his own stupid actions the club has been set back god knows how many years... As a player i will miss seeing him in the lime green
