This is a very local post. But poor Ben, Ben Cousins that is. Dearest blogger of the past, the lovely Rosanna said about him the last time I mentioned him, that he is so gorgeous, that she could just eat him up. Nice way of expressing it really. I could make a meal of him for sure. He is a hot guy.
For one moment, I will stick my old cynical persona on the shelf and believe.
The lad, footy player Ben, used to like to indulge in some mood altering substances. Who am I to criticise?
No football team will pick him up to play.......well, he is 30, and not exactly at his prime.
He has gone through drug rehab and has come out now as a clean and yet commercial interests dominate. Advertisers think he is risky. Not prepared to support a footy team who takes him on.
This is a massive rejection for someone who has worked hard to kick his vices. If he goes back to drug use, or even worse is not inconceivable, point the finger firmly at the AFL and the football teams' management.
But what may keep him going is he has been making a a doco for tv on his rehab that will rate its socks off.
Late rumour. He may be signed up by Richmond.
