Marley Williams out today with personal issues. Is this North saying he has mental illness as well, or will people calm down and accept they are 2 completely different things?

There is no ban on alcohol during the season for most clubs. The issue is that the demons had a policy in place that if you are in the rehab group you can not drink while you are rehabbing. Clubs invest alot of money in the players and put alot of resources into helping players while injured. There has been numerous studies that show alcohol slows down the healing process of soft tissue injuries. Surely it's not to hard to give up a beer for a month or 2 for the amount of money that you get paid

I didn't get this beat up of a story, he was out having a couple beers, he wasn't shitfaced and getting booted from the venue who gives a ****, why is this news?
I think this is almost the tipping point for a shit 3 months since joining the club.
Turned up overweight and unfit, which was called out by the coach. Then got suspended in his only full match for the club and now is out on the piss we the club has a no alcohol policy for players in rehab.

Gambling is another huge one, that can be extremely detrimental to people's lives, that get's advertised every 5 minutes when the footy is on.
