    Agreed.

    A three week period wouldn't have appeared as an Island facing stormy weather, surrounded by calm seas.

    I'm taking this news pretty seriously, and highly doubt it's a beat up.

    Park his ass in the membership department to personally ring non renewed members for 3 weeks.

    No problems with youngsters being youngsters, but someone who is on a quarter of a million a year has responsibilities, you can't take the candy without paying the price.

    I'm happy for a hard line from the club, I hope it works because the kid is a gun.

    Oh and Tom, if by some odd chance you read this, find some new mates, real mates wouldnt let you do this.

    All the reports about Tom suggest he's headstrong and his own man, it's a bit of a cop out to be blaming his mates.

    Heard a few mention this and it frustrates me. Tom has to stand up and be held accountable for his own stupid actions which, if continue, will see him out of a career.

    It would be interesting to know how his mates families perceive Tom, knowing the narrative in the media paints his mates negatively and as a distraction.

    Agree - and whos to know whether it is actually Tom that orchestrates the partying / sessions etc. Maybe he is the one who is the bad influence on them.

    Needs to pull his head in....again.

    I'm sure that Tom's mates are not dissimilar to most 22 year olds - and I'm with you that nobody should blame them for any time Tom messes up. It is entirely up to Tom to pick and choose when and how he socialises.

    Great bloke, always up for a party, isn't a "total footyhead like a lot of those other tossers". His mates are all totally consumed by their own self importance and cannot be told anything. Pampered babies for the most part.

    I can picture Turtle and Johnny Drama on a night out with Vince
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Is that at a guess or do you know this circle of people?

    I hope Tony & Tom have another heart to heart in light of this sad news. Family and footy are positives, drugs are the exact opposite.

    Yep, and where there's smoke there's fire.
    In this case it's a raging inferno.
    Young bloke either gets with the program or his career will be unfulfilled.
