News today is that Ben Cousins, the AFL player that last year was suspended for bringing the game into disrepute after problems at the West Coast Eagles and admitting to having a drug addiction problem, is considering registering with either a VFL or WAFL club before the deadline this Monday. Its is reported that his Management company will meet with him over the weekend:
Carlie Merenda, of Flying Start management group, flew to Perth last night to finalise Cousins’ immediate future.”Carlie will be in Perth over the next four or five days doing a number of things for Ben, a part of which is informing him of the processes that need to be put in place by Monday, if he wants to play footy,” Flying Start boss Ricky Nixon said last night.”That’s something Ben will have to make a decision on over the weekend, which includes which state, which club, etc etc.”
AFL boss, Andrew Demetriou has been behind Cousins getting better and returning:
“If it’s part of his rehabilitation process and it helps him get back to good health and playing footy is part of that, absolutely (it is good for him),”
So this brings forward the idea what club will he be likely to join in the AFL if he returns? Leave your thoughts in the Comments below and I will look at it in the near future.
