Jillaroos star Ruan Sims believes that bad boy Todd Carney has had enough chances during his career and should not be allowed to return and play in the NRL.

The issue of Carney returning to the game has been bubbling along recently with North Queensland keen to use him as a back-up option this season after submitting a contract to the NRL.

It has divided the code with the panel on 100% Footy, also split on whether he should be given one more chance.

Carney has a long rap sheet of offences in rugby league and was shown the door again in 2014 after a lewd image of him pretending to urinate in his own mouth was circulated on social media.

The 31-year-old is currently playing for the Northern Pride in Queensland’s Intrust Super Cup in the hope he can return to the NRL but Sims said Carney had used up all his chances.

“My personal opinion is no,” Sims said over whether he should be allowed back into the game.

“He’s a nice guy, I’ve met him before, I’ve had some things to do with him and he’s been very genuine and very gentle towards me but at the end of the day our game is our business.

Someone set my pants on fire or something. I think I'm dreaming.

“If we start bringing that into disrepute as players then we are actually reducing the amount of money that comes into the game, reducing the amount of money of commercial sponsorship that comes in.

“And also mothers with small kids wanting to play footy, they’re not going to get them to play footy if they see that at the top level.

“So for me personally, I say no.”

A decision on whether Carney should be given another chance has become even more contentious after the NRL allowed Matt Lodge to come back into the game at the Brisbane Broncos.

Lodge narrowly avoided a jail term for terrorising a New York family during a drug and alcohol-fuelled rampage in 2015, but has been ordered to pay $1.6 million in damages.

Gallen, who played alongside Carney at the Sharks before he was kicked out of the NRL, said he should be given another chance.

“(Lodge) has been allowed back into the game in the NRL,” Gallen said.

Amazon recalls power banks due to fire, chemical burn hazards

  Amazon recalls power banks due to fire, chemical burn hazards Amazon.com Inc has recalled some of its portable chargers in the United States following reports of overheating and fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said on Tuesday. The watchdog for safety and quality of consumer products in the United States said about 260,000 units of six kinds of power banks - manufactured in China by Guoguang Electric Co Ltd for Amazon's 'Basics' lineup - were part of the recall. Amazon has received 53 reports of these power banks overheating, which include incidents of battery acid burns and property damage from fire.

“Todd Carney’s got a long rap sheet, but there’s no real violence there, he hasn’t harmed anyone else.”

Sims interrupted and said, “He set someone’s pants on fire.”

Gallen continued his defence and said, “Well that was rumoured. I don’t think that was ever proven. If he did that I’m sure it was a practical joke and the bloke took it the wrong way.

“Why would (Cowboys’) Paul Green, who’s been a very successful coach, won a premiership, taken a team to grand finals, got a star-studded line-up, why would Paul Green want to take Todd Carney back now if he thought there was a danger of Todd Carney stuffing up and ruining his reputation.”

Journalist Neil Breen believed the NRL had made a rod for their own back after allowing Lodge back into the game, while Phil Gould believed the league could avoid any confusion by setting timeframes for punishments when they first hand them down.
