Reading about Shaun's health issues of late, I'd be interested if anybody from the club has reached out to him. Do we have an active Past Players Association and if so, are they responsive in supporting former players who have fallen on hard times?

Hopefully, the AFL is doing something given what Danny Frawley went through.
My concern with the PA is that they are almost entirely reliant on the AFL for funding and therefore, their very existence. The AFL don't want to know about the ex-players who have been debilitated by the lax protocol concussions of the past.

With that said I'm sure they don't want the headlines of "Another former AFL star.........."
