Not a great couple of weeks for Darius Boyd…
News Limited is reporting that Darius Boyd and his wife allegedly caused $1,500 worth of damage to a luxury hotel room at a resort in the Hunter Valley.
Now I know what you’re thinking…here comes League Freak ready to smash Darius Boyd for this outrageous behaviour that has once again dragged the game into the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The damage was alleged to have been a smashed television, a small hole in a wall and a smashed wine glass.
No one was hurt, no one complained, Boyd paid for the damage, and all of this occurred during time off for Boyd. He wasn’t at this resort as a representative of the Newcastle Knights. This was time away from the game for Darius Boyd.
There are certain unwritten rules at expensive hotels. Basically you get what you want, when you want, how you want…and if you’re willing to pay for it the sky is the limit.
If you break a television how much is that going to set you back? A decent television…you’re looking at around $1,200 right there.
A smashed wine glass, please. That isn’t even worth talking about. If you’ve ever been around wine drinkers you know that they break wine glasses on a regular basis.
A small hole in the wall, once again, there isn’t much going on there. Maybe Darius and his wife just rock it to that level, who knows?
What ever the case, right now there is a new television, a new wine glass an new plaster in the wall of a luxury hotel room in the Hunter Valley all thanks to Darius Boyd.
I could walk into my own bedroom right now with a wine glass and if for what ever reason I lost my footing, you know, because I’m drinking wine, I could easily smash a television, a glass, put a hole in the wall and cause $1,500 worth of damage.
I can tell you right now that as a person that does stay in luxury hotels when I go on holiday, I would not be staying anywhere that talked to the media about what I chose to do while at their establishment.
If I want to destroy a television during an alcohol fuelled sex romp with my woman, that’s my business!
Just be thankful that no one had to dispose of the corpse of a goat that is wearing women’s clothing, because some people are into that sort of thing. Not me but a friend of mine told me other people are into that sort of thing. That’s really weird though, right?
It will be interesting to see what Darius Boyd has to say about all of this.
