Roosters defend Blind Freddy

June 20, 2009 09:00am

SYDNEY Roosters CEO Steve Noyce is adamant the NRL club is sending the right message about alcohol consumption to its players despite police being called to help remove drunken coach Brad Fittler from the door of a frightened guest at a Townsville hotel.

Fittler fined himself $10,000 after the heavily intoxicated former Test captain was discovered by police trying to gain access to the wrong room at the Townsville Holiday Inn at about 3am on Friday.

Fittler had been on a long drinking session following a team dinner on Thursday night - with his Roosters due to play North Queensland at Dairy Farmers Stadium tonight - when he got out on the wrong floor of his hotel and attempted to get into what he thought was his room.

After finding him still waiting at the door with his shirt off, police ushered Fittler to his room with no charges laid.

Noyce claimed the fine and embarrassment the incident had caused were punishment enough, despite the one game suspensions imposed on representative duo Willie Mason and Nate Myles when they broke a club policy by drinking on a non-sanctioned day in March.
