What exactly did Justin Horo offer Frownlow judges?

Former NRL player Justin Horo offered a rolled up bill to judges of The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame, but it is unclear whether the gift was money or cocaine – or both.

Horo is desperate to be inducted into the hall of fame alongside some of the greats of Australian sport, or at least determined to be invited to the Frownlow after party later this year. He earned his nomination after being caught with cocaine inside a rolled up $100 note at a Sydney bar in 2021.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while AFL player Elijah Taylor is the most recent recipient.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Julian O’Neill.

Horo pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited drug at the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Sydney and was given a 12-month conditional release order and avoided conviction. He was apparently lining up for the toilets when police approached him and demanded he empty his pockets. They then found cocaine on him.

Immediately after the ruling, he posted a bizarre message on social media. He also claimed he took the drugs to sober himself up because he’d been drinking all day.

Horo is welcome to consume as many drugs as he wants at the Frownlow awards after party, via a rolled up note or any other apparatus he chooses. He can do so in the toilets, lining up for the toilets or nowhere near the toilets, and can post images of himself in all sorts of compromising positions alongside Australia’s greatest role models – professional footballers.

Karmichael Hunt to target one player.

Karmichael Hunt is back in the NRL for one reason. The winner of The Frownlow Medal in 2018 has his sights set on the 2016 medallist, Corey Norman. Norman is the only other winner of the prestigious medal to be playing first-grade football in Australia and Hunt is determined to take him out.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while AFL player Elijah Taylor is the most recent recipient.

“This medal ain’t big enough for the two of us,” Hunt threatened.

“I’m going after Corey. The Frownlow Medal is too prestigious and too important to have two former winners running around in first grade. I’m the Aplha Male, and I’m here to mark my territory.”

Hunt recently answered the call of the Brisbane Broncos to add experience to their halves after the club won the wooden spoon in 2020. Hunt will return to the top grade soon and is preparing himself for the showdown with Norman and his St George-Illawarra Dragons.

Hunt won the famous medal in 2018 after he and other former NRL players, and fellow Frownlow nominees, were investigated by police for their roles in a massive drug trafficking and selling operation. In 2017, he pleaded guilty to possession of illicit drugs and his NRL, AFL and Super Rugby careers stopped. He returned to the field and was playing lower-grade rugby league in Queensland when Broncos coach Kevin Walters made the call.

Norman stands in the way of Hunt’s dominance, and won the medal in 2016 after being photographed with known criminals on social media, starring in a leaked sex tape and taking part in the Eels salary cap scandal. He was also reported for intoxication at a Sydney nightspot and appeared in a leaked video in which another man was taking drugs. In addition, he was caught with illicit drugs, which may or may not have been sold by Karmichael.

Just a few weeks ago, he and his partner in crime, James Segeyaro, were caught on camera fighting a group of men in a street brawl outside Northies nightclub in Cronulla. this proved his determination to win The Frownlow Medal in 2021, or to at least remind fellow contenders that he is still a force to be reckoned with.

The Broncos play the Dragons in round 13, and for Hunt and Norman, this game will be bigger than the grand final.

Mark ‘Bomber’ Thompson to cater The Frownlow Medal after party.

Former AFL player and coach Mark ‘Bomber’ Thompson has promised players the biggest after party in the history of the Frownlow awards night later this year, after being charged with drug possession.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while fellow NRL player Ben Barba is the most recent recipient.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Julian O’Neill.

Thompson is extremely confident of providing the necessary ingredients for an epic night, after he was charged with offences including trafficking methamphetamine, ecstasy, cocaine and LSD, and of possessing prescription drugs without a prescription in 2018.

Authorities were initially suspicious of the large quantities of drugs in Thompson’s home, but once he explained that they were being set aside for footballers at the Frownlow after party, the charges of trafficking were dropped and he was only punished for the lesser charge of possession.

Thompson won three premierships with Essendon and coached the team in 2014. He also coached Geelong to a premiership.

The AFL star would not divulge the details of his plans for the party, but did reveal that he had invited Frownlow legend Ben Cousins, who is sure to attend, unless he is in prison. Thompson will find out during the grand ceremony if he himself has done enough to be cap off the night with an induction into The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame.
