I watched the first game of the 2011 AFL season last night. It was the first time that the new Substitute rule was put to the test. A quick Google search this morning provided many news articles saying that it was a failure.
In my bible study last night, we had a bit of a chat about those who were “lost” – and football players came up immediately. It came after West Coast Eagles star Ben Cousins was Suspended Indefinitely. We talked about how often football players, and others as well, turn to drugs to fill a void in their lives.
