Carney set to answer Raiders ultimatum

Canberra NRL club expects an answer on Friday from wayward star Todd Carney to the ultimatum it delivered last week.

The Raiders told the halfback he would have to accept an alcohol ban, suspension from the rest of the 2008 season, counselling and do volunteer work if he wanted to stay with the club following a late night drinking binge with fellow teammate Bronx Goodwin almost a fortnight ago.

Club chief executive Don Furner said the club had no idea whether Carney would accept the deal.

"We're expecting an answer by tomorrow," Furner said.

"They're just mulling over a few things."

Carney has not been at the club headquarters since the incident in the late hours of Sunday, July 20. He lives less than a kilometre away because he lost his licence to a drink driving charge in an early run-in with police.

A complaint that Carney urinated on a pub patron on July 20 was withdrawn but the club still decided to suspend him indefinitely.

Furner warned that there was no flexibility in the club's offer.

Asked if it was "take it or leave it", Furner said "yep".
