Given what Gary has been through too sometimes the death of child ( born or unborn ) completely changes people.

I’m not one to sit and judge others .

I’ve been through it and it certainly changed both myself and my now ex partner.


I find it funny how people totally understand every story
It can change people and you can fully understand them drifting apart and splitting.

Doesn't mean you have to be a disrespectful campaigner and cheat on your wife and maker her trauma worse. Just split up first like a half decent human being.

I can confirm the earth is rectangular, JFK is still alive attending Trump rallies and Elvis left earth to perform a benefit gig on Uranus.

Nobody in this thread "confirming" anything means a single ******* thing unless they can demonstrate some evidence

I do worry for the future of mankind when bigfooty posters think adding "I can confirm" to the front of something gives it gravitas. o_O
Thanks Champ! Turns out I could confirm, no need to out my source either.
Back in your box now.

It’s an interesting issue and quite a few players (see the Perth influencer WAGs in particular) have had marriage breakdowns as soon as their careers are over too, probably because said WAGs had become accustomed to the lifestyle only to realise they’re now just married to an ordinary dude.
I was reading something about the high rate of divorces NFL players go through in the 24 months after they retire. Part of it comes down to they're suddenly spending more time together, he's trying to figure out the next steps in his life, spending more time with the kids, no longer feeling part of a team for the first time in X number of years. Plenty of reasons, most of which fall on the guy rather than his partner.

More proof footballers are idiots.

Prime of his life and he precedes to pop out 3 kids before 30. If that's not complicating things enough, he has an affair at the end of his career just to ensure he gifts her half of what he's earned.
At least he won’t have to worry about how to cut a premiership medal in half!

have no idea why most professional sportspeople get married or into committed relationships during their careers.
It’s the law of possession many blokes have and I’ve seen plenty of it. They don’t want to just be with that person, but they don’t want anyone else to be with that person while they’re off being with other people. Once saw a failed footy ‘Star’ at a wedding and they were chatting up every young lady that gave them attention. Their missus was there too, and when she was chatting to some random bloke over a glass of red he couldn’t handle it and made her feel that bad about it that she left. Of course he stayed to add another notch.
Despicable alpha possessive behaviour. Not suggesting that Rohan is this type. Just seen plenty of it.

He’s got serious claims to three.
I see your thinking there, but to be fair, Lewis Jetta had him covered in the 2014 Granny.
Gary was a worthy runner up on the day with only 7 touches, which really equated to an absolute blinder by his lowly standards.
I don't think I'd be alone in hoping that he can get on the big stage yet again, and cement himself as one of the games all-time legends.

If this is true, then it should be borne out by the proportion of divorces sought / initiated by the men being higher than for the women.

Is this the case? I highly doubt it.

The opposite, if you're the one who's undergoing huge changes as a person it's probably going to be your partner breaking up with you. A broad example would be who have ended up being alcoholics or wife beaters are probably more likely to be divorced than initiate the divorce. More sports specific people suffering from CTE, depression or poor financial management would be more likely to be divorced than initiate the divorce.

"When athletes retire, most face an identity crisis. Many do not retire on their own terms, and once they leave the game, they also leave behind the fame and fortune, the crowds and adoration. Their wives experience a similar loss of status. The dynamic players they married can become passive and withdrawn."

If you're a male athlete who's retiring after 15 years in the game it's a hell of a lot more change for you as an athlete than for your partner.
