Joel Monaghan and The Dog Picture. A picture saves a thousand words. Well done mate, you have typified what a footballer really is. Forget the spin…. And it was a Canberra Raiders team mate that took the photo?
Now where is the RSPCA in all this?
There is a crime called buggery.
And people barking at him for the rest of his life, dumb ass.
Monaghan’s agent Jim Banaghan released a statement last night on behalf of the player, who took full responsibility for his disgusting Mad Monday actions.
“Joel can’t blame anyone but himself for an act of stupidity that will haunt him for the rest of his life,” Banaghan said.
“Joel wants to make it clear that he was the one playing a prank on an absent teammate by simulating the act.
“There are no words of explanation that can be offered because none can be appropriate.
“Joel has to now face his family as well as fans and supporters with that shame and has already undergone counselling to help him cope with the consequences of what has happened.
“It was a moment of abject stupidity brought about by too much drink and a complete lack of any thought process.
“The fact that someone has sought to compound the situation further by the use of social media only adds to the trauma, but Joel accepts that it is his actions alone that are at fault.”
The picture is believed to have been taken by a high-profile Raiders first-grade player inside the home unit of one of his teammates.
