..someone (guess who?) mocked me earlier in the year for saying Cousins had shaved his head for certain reasons...

well he has admitted he shaved it so they couldn't use a strand for drug-testing...

...was spot-on...

where have you been???????

he admitted on on the couch 3 months ago that he thought the afl were out to get him and he didnt want to put hos career in the hands of the afl/wada authorities as he thought they would make an example of him

he did nothing wrong there are no rules against shaving your head

Nothing very surprising so far on story...

most dangerous message to kids is that he didn't feel it was a problem..."I was numb!"...those around him did....

Looks, brains, charm...he will probably make a mint out of notoriety now...

you will get different opinions from everyone moz

i think it was very good but some people who are cousin haters will rip it to threads

i think the best is still to come seeing how it really effected his family what he sore last night was just all the facts and some insights in to what he went through in his head

I thought it was great to see his side of the story, he's very blunt, candid and raw. Guy did silly things off the field, things a lot of "regular" people do, but he was a champ on the footy field, always playing his heart out.

Looks to me AFL does not like individuals. First Cousins, then Aker. Can't believe AFL had in cuz's contract who he could and couldn't hang out with. Bullshit.

what i find funny ist hat the afl are now coping it over the drug policy

what the average punter doesnt understand cousins started his career in like 95-96

the current drug policy started in 2005

people are say how did he beat the drug tests his whoel career this is bad for the afl

the system actually caught him in the long run when he didnt pitch for training after a tip off that testers were waiting for him and he got done in 2006

your way off the mark there

sam newman wouldnt no wtf he was talking about

he also stated taht he didnt watch part 2 he would retract what he said if he did

cousins wouls still be loaded if he didnt paly footy his father is a multi multi multi millionaire

its not cousins fault that the public treat him like a superstar and not our troops

he cant ger a grip on the real world because the real world doesnt exist for me

your obviously uninformed or plain stupid if you think drug addiction isnt a real fucking problem

the bloke is not fuckn addicted to drugs !!!!!!

he loves getting off his head as much as the next bloke but the difference he is loaded and lives like a rock star !!! to stay clean for a couple of days before his games shows to any one half fuckn smart he used them at his own will when he knew he wont get caught..
people who are addicted cannot just turn that addiction for their next hit off like a tap.

Ben Cousins played hard on the field and just as hard off it but you got to be kidding about feeling sorry for him. he was laughing about his benders getting treated like a fuckn king where ever he went.....

you really have to be sucker to feel too much sympathy for the boy. he made some coin out of it and what did it really tell everyone .FUCK ALL. he loved to get off his head and go hard like about 27 of my mates at the footy club.... ps missus loved it !!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot agree mate.

An alcoholic is addicted to booze, but they do not necessarily write themselves off each night. Their problem is that once they have a drink, they drink until there is no more. It looks like it is the same for Cousins and drugs.

Once he goes on a bender, he does not know when to stop, having viewed the documentary and listened to the experts, I think it is clear he is an addict, and definitely has a drug problem, which will be with him for the rest of his life.

Don't go listening to Sam Newman, he wouldn't have a clue, and would be pissed that channel 7 had the rights to the program and not his beloved channel 9.

Was certainly interesting viewing. I don't think for a minute that everyone believes everything that an addict of any sort tells you. I thought for the most part it was a truthful account of what happened. I found the footage of the family (especially father and sister) to be heart wrenching. For any parent out there I always think "Oh but by the grace of God go I". I have always been a big Ben Cousins fan. I always felt that without the AFL he just wouldn't have stood a chance. Now the real test when he hangs up the boots - He may stumble along the way but I for one hope that he goes on to lead a very full and long life free of drugs. If nothing else, its the waste of a young life for anything else to happen. Thanks for the memories on the footy field Benny !

99.9% of the time Mike is a tool but for this 0.1% article he's absolutely correct. There was nothing glamorous in that documentary. The fight is far from over for Ben and everyone around him.
