The Brisbane Broncos rugby league team have defended their new signee OJ Simpson by saying everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt.
“Look you media types are always going in for the kill, leave the bloke alone it’s not like he stabbed anyone,” said Bronco’s spokesperson Ian Goalpost. “Yes OJ has been to prison but he’s served his time and it’s time we move on and let the kid play.”
“He’s gonna do great things for this club both on field and off. Why already he’s come up with a great marketing idea of how he’ll lead the team onto the ground each week by driving from the team hotel to the stadium in a white bronco. Genius.”
The NRL has also thrown their support behind the Broncos signing OJ Simpson and is in talks with the star to front their new advertising campaign designed to draw more women to rugby league. Whilst only in the development stage the NRL’s new ad campaign is tentatively titled: ‘If the glove fits.’
Brisbane Broncos coach Wayne Bennett could not be reached for comment as he was busy throwing house bricks at the press.
