Sharks need to put a deadline down on carney. Its really starting to annoy the **** outer me. I'm starting to not give a **** if he comes or not now. And at the start I was So keen to get him here.

Flano said we have 2 spots for the top 25 left. I think I would cry if they where Bird and Carney.

If Carney goes to the Titans I will give it 2 months , Nate will be ****ting in hallways and Carney will be pissing on drunk people

You think it would be any better here for him?

Dan Ginnane from triple m has tweeted there is something to the Carney to the Dragons story.

With David Riccio who has linked to the sharks downplaying the Bird claim, knowing the Sharks luck we'll end up with neither.

We shouldn't risk trying to get both, just go hard after Carney, he's more important.

Has anyone else noticed that all of the articles saying that we're favourites to sign Carney have come from journo's who follow the Club (Rothfield, Riccio) were articles written about those other articles or were based on sources at the Sharks.

None have come from Carney or his management.

Anyone else think that might mean something?

Yes less scrutiny

lol.

In Sydney?

You do remember, say, Brett Seymour?

Unwanted by rival clubs, Todd Carney all but forced into a Cronulla Sharks jersey - The Daily Telegraph (blog)

Unwanted by rival clubs, Todd Carney all but forced into a Cronulla Sharks jersey

TODD Carney looks set to sign with the beleaguered Sharkies this week - given every other NRL club has withdrawn interest.

A grand finalist and Dally M winner only two seasons ago, Carney yesterday had his future confirmed at the bottom of a St George Illawarra press release regarding, of all things, the signing of young prop Atelea Vea.

Four paragraphs in, the release read: The Dragons can also confirm they have no interest in signing Todd Carney and have made no formal inquiries about his services despite reports to the contrary.

Exactly what "informal" inquiries were made, of course, remains unclear. Regardless, it now seems Carney is set to join the Sharkies by default. Offered around $200,000 for his first season, the NRL's version of Andy Capp could earn double that in his second should Cronulla captain Paul Gallen be successful in a mentoring role.

Meanwhile, besieged Wests Tigers utility Tim Moltzen also spent yesterday immersed in talk of promises, commitment and contracts bound by a higher power than even David Gallop.

"Ahh, can't really talk - I'm at a wedding," Moltzen apologised down the phone line when quizzed about his ongoing contract dramas. "Besides, there's nothing to really say. Not until everything has been sorted."

But please, no holding your breath league fans.

Because while NRL sources are saying Moltzen should know sometime this week - and perhaps as early as today - whether he is to be a Wests Tiger or St George Illawarra Dragon in 2012, we would like to remind you about that little thing called Independent Commission.

You know, the great institution to save rugby league ... if only it could save itself.

Molzten, Carney, the Commission, even those feudin' Eels - all of them swirling about in what is quickly becoming the NRL's very own version of Stilnox. Set to be sorted in around the same timeframe as the American Civil War.

As of last night, NRL salary cap auditor Ian Schubert was still unravelling the Moltzen mess. While Schubert is remaining silent until a decision is reached, it's understood St George Illawarra officials appear resigned to losing the 22-year-old utility - and housemate of Tigers superstar Benji Marshall - who is desperate to remain at his current club.

Even if Schubert, who has been reviewing all relevant documentation since Wednesday, confirms the Dragons are to get Moltzen, it's understood a compensation deal will be hammered out, allowing him to remain in the black and orange.

And as for Vea?

Well, apparently the Tongan international who, according to the release can play prop or second-row, has signed a one-year contract after spending last winter with the Melbourne Storm.

A Hurstville United junior, he started his career with ... yep, you guessed it ... Cronulla.

"Unwanted by rival clubs"
"forced into a Cronulla Sharks jersey"
"set to sign with the beleaguered Sharkies"
"every other NRL club has withdrawn interest."
"Carney is set to join the Sharkies by default."

Disgraceful.

Note to Nick Walshaw.

Be prepared to hear a dial tone when the Sharks are a top 8 side next year and have fun "reporting" the badminton!

Muppet!
