An Australian rugby league team released one of its players today after a photo surfaced that appears to show him pissing into his own mouth.

The Cronulla Sharks terminated Todd Carney's contract for the very NSFW photo which can be seen below.

The club released a statement regarding the firing on their website. An excerpt:

When Todd was first signed to the Sharks he was made well aware of his responsibilities both on and off the field, to himself, the club and to the game in general, however the photograph that appeared last night on social media does not meet the values and standards the club is looking to uphold and take into the future.

As with any difficult decision, whilst you can't change the past, it is important to put measures in place that can deliver positive outcomes both in the present and into the future.

The club and the NRL will be committed to working with Todd, his family and his management in implementing appropriate counseling and support, with the start of this process to begin tonight.

Carney was released by the Canberra Raiders in 2008 for allegedly pissing on someone's head at a club.


The uncensored photo, of a man pissing into his own mouth with impressive accuracy, is below:
