Ben Cousins - You Idiot - Revisited

Statement from the West Coast Eagles only last week - "We don't have a culture problem". Judging by the fact that a few days later they suspend indefinitely their former captain, Ben Cousins, following a drug test and failure to attend training that was rather a large statement to be taken with a dose of salt.

He may have gotten away with running from a booze bus, being a prat, dealing with gangsters, fighting with a teammate resultant in a broken arm (for him), etc, etc, but this time he's overstepped the line. Apparently it has a great deal to do with substance abuse, specifically methamphetamines, "ice", and he recently split with his long-term girlfriend.

Could have been a champion footballer but never really was a champion player. Good riddance to bad rubbish. I bet that changes the footy tipping for the rapidly approaching 2007 season.
