    They removed the paedophile reference but left the meth head reference, as well as the homophobic Fyfe slurs.

    Class outfit.

    This all sounds enthralling but if we could bring it back on topic that'd be great, thanks people.

    He may not have the worst facial hair in the league for long either:

    When he talks he reminds me of a cross between Bill Murray's character in Caddy Shack and Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    In that video it looks to me like the outer eyebrow has thinned which can be an indicator of Hashimoto's disease (hyperthyroidism).

    I hope not... But it could account for the depression he was suffering (aside from living in Sydney - which would be enough to depress me).

    What you've written is medically incorrect.

    Hashimoto's typically causes hypothyroidism (under active). It can be overactive to start with, but that is temporary. Under active (hypothyroidism) can be associated with loss of the outer eyebrow.

    I'll never be able to disconnect the likeness in mannerisms of Cam to 'Trent from Punchy' again.

    Cam's a dero with a heart of gold.

    But they are right. He doesn't look "cut enough".

    Fortunately that makes no difference because it isn't a muscle calendar we are making, and he plays footie beautifully.

    He's quickly becoming my favourite player at Freo. Just seems so genuine, and a natural footballer.

    Gee I love listening to this bloke:

    "nah it was all basically instinct - I thought for a second maybe try to do like a Daniel Wells sorta like Jackie Chan kick back in the day - I thought that for a second but just brought it ground"

    "yeah I guess when we're out there playing you don't really think about that sorta stuff - everyone's sorta freaking out & we're just trying to get heaps of people behind the ball".

    Cam smiling and not looking quite so awkward in an interview, he's growing up it seems.
    He looks content within himself and that's great.

    I used to sit in Block 243 right behind the city goals, and was there when Wells kicked that goal. It was pure freak stuff and broke the hearts of fans and spirits of the players.
