Yesterday, Ben Cousins was welcomed back to Subiaco Oval by the West Coast Eagles.
As he tries to rebuild his cracked career, he has told close friends that he really has turned his back on drugs. Now, if ever he’s feeling vulnerable, he leaves his shadowy friends in Perth, jumps on a plane and escapes for a quick fix holiday in Amsterdam.

Following the highly successful footy match last year in Hanoi between the Hanoi Swans and the CARE AFL All Stars, which was filmed by a Channel 9 cameraman, we were to “go to air” this year on the Footy Show’s season opener.
