Ben Cousins’ retirement

The controversial football champ’s retirement gave us all a timely and nostalgic reminder of ‘what could have been’. Where would Ben be today without a second chance? Where will ‘Cuz’ be in the future? Both questions will be answered in time, but what Cuz demonstrated today at his media conference was a strong sense of humility and appreciation for the second chance given to him by the Richmond Football Club. Sadly, it is a stark contrast to the outspoken and sacked-footballer Jason Akermanis, who continues to attack the club who once gave him a second chance at doing the thing he loves most- playing footy.
