    Seems like a good bloke. Obviously has some addiction issues as well as he was off his guts a few times on fox. Hope he sorts his shit out

    Yep, you can see this in the photo included in the article.
    Must've had one last bump before the flight to rehab.
    Passed out, drooling and blood coming from his nose.

    Very sad. Could use some help recalibrating his perspective. Its useful to learn how to celebrate the genuine highs experienced in life, but not feel the need to match them or relive them. For example a lot of blokes I know list the birth of their child/ren as one of the greatest moments in their lives, but most of us celebrate and appreciate the memory of such events for when and what they are, rather than try to replicate them for the rest of our lives (except maybe that one bloke in India that fathered over 50 kids).

    Yeah I wish him all the best as he's a character and comes across as a fun bloke to be around. The symptoms mentioned sound like drug affected but I'm no Doctor. Get well mate!

    Hope the guy gets better but this shows that the media look after their own.... had he been a current or former NRL player without a media job, the journalists would be all over him....

    He was off his head more often than not on Fox this year. TBH I'm not sure how they let him on air sometimes. Its sad but its also self inflicted so he needs to help himself basically.

    Well he can start by not abusing drugs on a constant basis....he's not 21 any more FFS. Seriously, the guy has a gorgeous wife and a beautiful daughter.....he needs to seriously pull his head in. As someone else alluded to...can you imagine if that was an NRL player? They would be hounded out of the game by the media.

    Not really. Being an addict (of anything) is the mental health problem to begin with. There's plenty of high functioning drug users with less issues than the average person these days.

    It's a very sad scenario,he finds himself in,but nobody put the drugs in his body,he did,and doesn't he realise he has a young child,a partner,shouldn't that be enough incentive for him,to sort himself out,let's hope so.
