I tell you what, I’ve been aware that this Ben Cousins doco is coming up because I know the guy that’s been filming it. Well, I should say, we have a mutual friend anyway. My point is that from what I can gather is that this is a warts and all look at all aspects of life as a footy player, fallen star, and drug addict or is probably always going to battle this demons. I think it’s a wise and thoughtful move on Ben’s behalf, because it shows him at some of his lowest moments, it shows the pain and sadness that every drug addict who has a family that loves them, goes through. Jason Akermanis thinks Ben’s career is over because of this documentary, and he thinks that some kids will look at it and think that because Ben’s survived, then why not give drugs a try. I just think that Jason needs not be the person that the media goes to when there’s a footy controversary because he’s not overly bright. Or if he is really bright, then he is a headline maker. He says things that he knows will make a headline, and knows that the media will give him airtime because of the same reason. But that sort of crap annoys me. Anyone that see’s this documentary, with Ben in all his drug addict glory, or lack thereof – as well as his father and sister crying out of fear that they he may DIE – not lose his career, DIE…….and still thinks drugs are cool…..is going to take drugs anyway. If there’s any idiots out there that still think Ben’s history and life is fabulous or easy, needs to see this documentary and hats off to Ben for showing a very sad, painful, and tragic side of himself. Sure he looks good now………but this no doubt will show where Ben could so easily end up again….or alot worse. Good on you Ben!!!!!
