No wonder any lawyer or player would be concerned about allowing them to view evidence before a court case.
What did they leak?
That the NRL have now viewed the footage and are requesting more stuff.
Scoop of the century there. :lol:

Weedler probably called them for comment and that's all they gave him.

Based on that report from Weilder, i'd guess and the footage isnt some sort of smoking gun against Scott.

Agree, it doesn't clear him though obviously.

It seems extraordinary that they have arranged to have the CEO of the NRL in to view the video footage and didn't have all the evidence on hand to show him...

Really? It's the NRL - nothing is ever going to make any sense to a logical mind.

What the hell sort of clown show is this?! Anyone with half a brain could see this Dennis Denuto situation was going to end in tears. :lol:

Seriously, this bloke better be worth it. The club must be kicking itself.

The only saving grace here is that it's all happening in the pre-season.

I bet Curtis and Eid were doing tequila shots at the ivy together and when he sobered up in the cell he found his business card in his pocket. Scrap that

Canberra Raiders recruit Curtis Scott breaks silence on Australia Day incident: "Can't take back what I've done"

An emotional Curtis Scott has broken his silence following his Australia Day arrest - but he cannot comment on what happened after he was handcuffed, as the matters are before the courts.

“I was kind of just lost in the city and I sat down to have a rest and I ended up falling asleep,” Scott explained. Scott conceded: “I know I shouldn’t have put myself in that position. I have pleaded not guilty to it all. But obviously there is two sides. I am not a bad person. I try my best to be a good person. I just put myself in a bad position and I am paying the price 10 fold now for it.”

Innocent until proven guilty.

The law of the land.

Good luck Curtis, I hope your are proven not guilty and can help the Raiders to the promised land...

There are lots of other aspects reported in the story, but not about what happened in the incident. Scott tells how his sister came to pick him up, how his mother was angry at first but not so much after he told his side of the story, how tough it has been on his family, how he didn’t want to leave home, go outside. He is off social media... and off alcohol, hopefully for the remainder of the season. He has fronted the Raiders juniors teams to tell them a cautionary tale.

Ricky Stuart defends his character, telling the story of how donated $5000 for bushfire relief and started his own fund raising effort.

I'd like to think the kid is regretful. It's a bloody embarrassing thing to get splashed all over the papers. Hopefully this is a wake-up call.

The club seems to be supporting him, and it looks like they helped him get some decent legal representation. That's a good sign for Scott. You wouldn't want to disappoint Ricky Stuart too often though.

Much better stance to take.

‘It wasn’t that bad but I should never have been there’.

Character witnesses etc.

Great move from the new lawyer, instead of taking in the NRL head on, they are giving them the story they can use. Smart.

Current lawyer is a guy who does the rounds on Current Affair and Talback radio when they need to bring in a legal expert. He knows that side of the game.

I prefer Denuto. At least he hammered home some home truths about fairness before he began crab walking away from his stoic pledge of defending his innocent client until his dying breath..gasp.... I was completely digging his vibe argument too.

Good fluid hips
Strong hands with great initial punch
Strong in his stance and can beat 1 on 1's, struggles to split the double team and loses focus in the phone booth
Grabby in technique and likely to get holding calls

'I am not a bad person': Canbera Raiders new recruit Curtis Scott breaks his silence after Australia Day arrest

Canberra Raiders recruit Curtis Scott has broken his silence on his Australia Day arrest which resulted in the former Storm star facing six charges, including two counts of assaulting a police officer.

Scott told News Corp that he is "not a bad person", and said he was innocent, after pleading not guilty to all charges in court. However Scott admitted that he put himself in a "bad position".

Self imposed social media ban is going well. He just posted a photo on Instagram out with the boys.... why must players fill like they need to post on social media all the time when the spot light is on them. Stay out of sight god damn you, we need you to play!

Post a picture helping the people affected by the fires on the south coast trip or saving a koala or something!

The latest twist in Curtis Scott’s legal fight to be cleared to start the NRL season

Curtis Scott’s new lawyer Sam Macedone wants to set up a meeting with the NRL integrity unit on the Raiders recruit’s Australia Day incident in the hope that “some common sense might prevail”.

“Pleas of not guilty have been entered. The NRL have at long last been permitted to view the body-worn video of the incident so that will give them first-hand description of what occurred. Hopefully they can exercise some discretion. Hopefully some common sense might prevail.”

Suggestion from Alan Jones in audio that accompanies the story, that the defence is expecting the charges to be downgraded or dropped. Seems he made those comments Friday. Macedone doesn’t make make any statement about what the video shows, just that it shows the truth of what happened... and also makes the statement that he’s hoping for common sense resolution on the issue of stand down.

I just find it really hard not to utterly reject an endorsement from Alan Jones. Especially as he admits he actually knows nothing about it (perhaps he should read this thread).

For those of you without long memories, Jones has a history of backing people that history shows maybe he shouldn't have. I mean sportsmen.
