    Libba jnr must be finding it very hard being out of the game for a year. If he has made a mistake, I can understand, no need to take him to the cleaners, just move forward from here.

    I don't think being out for the year is an excuse. I know everyone is different but he needs to take a leaf out of Clay Smith's book. I don't think he should be taken to the cleaners but this seems a bit bigger than simply another mistake.
    I think both Libba and, more broadly the AFL, have a fairly serious problem.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.

    Yep. AFL players don't live in isolation.
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    Agree although they do get a lot more education than the rest of society

    That's true. They can't plead ignorance.

    I was talking to the greengrocer today and his nephew is a first year West Coast player. They have put strict controls on players and regularly take urine samples. After every training session, all players are tested.

    I wonder what tests we have on players.

    That's the difference between a wealthy club and a club like ours. I'd suggest we'd be doing the statutory amount, considering they'd cost thousands per session to perform.

    Government aside, I think society realizes it has a problem. The AFL have been completely blindsided by recent revelations, staggering. Either that or they've had their heads in the sand since Ben Cousins.

    Pretty much everybody's dad says that about their kids though. I don't with my kids of course, but my dad was always going on about the topic of lazy kids!
