The former spiritual leader of the West Coast Eagles came out and gave a brief interview on Thursday night. It was an interesting interview. Ben seemed guarded in his response, yet also aware and upfront about the struggles he is going to face.
I hope that he gets back to playing footy at some stage, it might help the journey to recovery for him. With so much talent and giftedness, Ben’s story is one of contradictions, missed opportunities and waste.
Maybe he might get picked up by Geelong. Mooney was open to the idea, and it was the club he could have gone to instead of the Eagles.
