Good. Should put a bookend on this whole situation for him.

Could this case have gone any worse for police?

Lesson for people, the quicker you realise that you’ve made a mistake and stop what you’re doing the better.

Going further and further into the mire, trying to blame someone else and hoping the affected party will withdraw, is not the answer.

Police Commissioner really hasn’t covered himself in glory either. Certainly doesn’t look like NSW police have learnt any lessons from this debacle for all involved parties.

Doesn't exactly fill the civilian population with confidence when you have officers torturing drunks (police job is NEVER to punish, however much they want to- just to investigate and assist) and face smashing aboriginal kids during BLM protests and the Commissioner backs them. It's the old closing ranks starting from the top again. It took a Royal Commission and decades to sort that out last time.

All he has to say, if he doesn't want to condemn young officers is, "We are always looking to learn and improve our policing. There will be appropriate oversight given to this case to ascertain if procedures were appropriately followed or how they can be approved". Non-judgemental and people would have swallowed it, every organisation makes errors but you only worry about those blind to recognising them.

Uncensored Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott reveals darkest hours



There were days Curtis Scott didn't care if he woke up, with the Canberra Raider opening up on the nightmare his life became this year.

"I had rugby league personalities coming out on the radio, coming out on the news, saying this bloke shouldn't even be playing rugby league. It was tough. I'm not going to sit here and say it wasn't tough and I was OK. Some days I didn't want to get up or didn't want to go to training or didn't even care if I woke up or not."

Finchy does well as a podcast interviewer. Very well indeed.

Wasn’t a bad listen but didn’t really provide a whole lot of insight as to why he actually left the Storm.

Seemed like he still pined to be there and kind of reminded me of when a pretty disgruntled FPN joined us from the Roosters.

As far a Scum Bag (when did the filter get switched off?) goes he’s not too bad but the same old self-deprecating jokes about his physique and partying get pretty predictable and wear thin after a while.

Maybe next week. Depends on where the Pork’s head is at.

Also what about the Finch filter?

Curtis seems like a good young kid who made a mistake being in the wrong place-wrong time and ended up learning some serious life lessons from it. The last 2 minutes really makes you hope he kills it next year! good listen if you skip the bits where finch talking about himself haha
