Joey's late-night Gus prank leaves panel in stitches


//

Verbal abuse, harassment and threats.

They're very real issues that Australian athletes unfortunately have to deal with far too often.

While instances are often swept under the rug, Sydney Roosters star Latrell Mitchell made the brave decision to call out a vile racial attack against him on social media on Monday.

The move was met with a wave of support from fellow players and personalities around the game as the NRL launched an investigation into the reprehensible attack.

Billy calls out discrimination

But while biggest and brightest cop the brunt of abuse, it seems not even the game's pundits are safe.

Enter NRL guru Phil Gould who vehemently condemned the cowardly attack on Mitchell.

Gould said he felt for the Roosters prodigy and explained that with ever-increasing technologies players can be targeted on multiple fronts, even via personal phone calls.

"I couldn't count the number of blocked numbers I've got on my phone," Gould revealed on Nine's 100% Footy, "Prank calls at two or three in the morning.

"Now it's either one of your ex-footballer mates that's drunk, but then it's usually their number that comes up so you know who it is.

"Andrew Johns."

The not so subtle dig sending the 100% Footy panel into hysterics as they fought back laughter at the Rugby League Immortal's late-night antics.

Gus reveals Joey's late night prank

"But it's the private number ones you get, when some larrikin has gotten hold of your phone so they're ringing incessantly at all hours of the morning," Gould continued.

The damage was done however with Nine presenter James Bracy chocking back laughter before throwing to the next segment.

Well-played, Joey.
