Poor form there Troy

Bringing the Cousins name into this before more info is available is premature I think. Let's see what the real story is before we start making drug accusations etc. I do however question the abiliity of these guys who are treated like thourobreds are let out to fodder when their bodies are not ready for it. I have a brain but not an able body these days, I like a fishing trip and a few beers for a few weeks. Why do these clubs allow these guys to run a muck? Is it so different to other career development?

 Good call Vince, interesting that if it was a cricketer, I guarantee that there would be no drug references at all. There are guys on this site that have done and some that still play high level football that know these guys and I think it's disgusting that dickheads can say shit like that before all of the details are known. Poor form.

Wasn't a personal dig at Troy, just at the general public attitude about footy shannigans.
