Ben Barba

Ben Barba was the 2012 Dally M medallist but shocked the league world just weeks before the 2013 season kicked off, when it emerged that this seemingly clean-cut kid admitted he was "ill" and needed to seek help. He was suspended by the Bulldogs indefinitely, with the club citing 'behavioural issues'.

    Too much testosterone affects their brains and in combination with celebrity and alcohol, they loose all sense of right and wrong.

    The Stewart boys for Manly, the quicker they quit the game, the better. Bret Stewart behaviour towards CEO Gallop was so childish and far from "manly"in his beahviour. The club Manly have had a great tradition with some very great players but the Stewart's not worthy of any greatness. They are still kids mentally, wait until they are around 40 years old. No one will remember them other than for their bad behaviour.

    Some of these are just guys doing what they do in their private lives. What was Jared Hayne doing out at 4am? It's none of my business. And before you say "role model", do what I do and take responsiblity for raisng your own kids.
