For me that is Worst Case Scenario on what he could Develop Into is someone who is Dangerous Forward
Couldn't agree more. The ability to inspire acute, cringing, hand-wringing, panic-attack-inducing embarrassment in opposition defenders is a priceless and rare quality, to be nurtured to its fullest potential and then ruthlessly exploited. All with a smile. Please... don't turn him into a midfielder until he's kicked so many goals that he's bored with it.

May have plenty of time to work on his tattooing skills. I'm predicting him to return with more ink than Swanny.

Why? Just, why? :( Crap news.

I'd like to be able to say something ageist like "youth is wasted on the young", but I've seen too much problem gambling to try localise it like that.

I hope he learns from this and repays the club for this f* up.

The AFL will rightfully punish him but then continue to align itself with bookmakers, of course.

If there is any truth to the rumour Stephenson is an absolute drop kick.

You earn how much a year to play football professionally? You go through how many training courses around conduct and what you can and can’t do? And then you still somehow justify to yourself that you can bet on an AFL result? Particularly one you have an active involvement in??

There is no justification. Once again, if the rumour is true, he is an absolute fool and will deserve whatever consequences come his way. What the **** was he thinking?

Turns out Higgins isn’t the stupidest bloke in the AFL. Who’d have thought.

Man some people are overreacting here, I've met Stevo a couple of times and found him to be as down to earth and nice a bloke as any. So he probably made a little mistake get over it. A 50 dollar bet is nothing the only way you justify consequences were if he backed Melbourne to win or something similar it's not a huge issue. As stated earlier this has come at a good time for the afl to turn attention from the security issues of late.

Not the end of the world move on.
