Don't know anything about the Hogan situation but mental health is the easiest cop out you could possibly think of. There is literally no way to disprove it. Really takes the shine off the actual sufferers as well, who would have it very hard. Would not surprise me to learn that their is a substantial amount of people abusing this - not just in AFL circles either. You have to take it seriously when someone comes forward however, since it's a very real thing.
