    'Take some time away' is what he says on Fox.
    He had all season out with an ACL - his mind is just not on the discipline of professional sport @:cool:

    Hope he's ok. Seems like a great big lost kid. Tough for some.

    Strange. I heard him interviewed on the radio recently and he sounded extremely positive about himself and next season. Maybe this all changed when Cleary was shown the door and they brought Griffin in to replace him.

    I think that his mind retired from the game some time ago. It appears that he is also not prepared to put in the work required in this professional era.

    It is a real shame that Jamal has not been able to use his undoubted talents - another example of the responsibility I believe the game has in taking care of the players on and off field.

    Most of the time these are young guys who have lived in a bubble for a long period of their formative years (often being paid wages far higher than people of a similar age)...as a result they can have a tendency to struggle with "life". Whilst the game is moving ahead in taking care of player safety through steps such as concussion rulings and lifting tackles there is considerable work to be done in helping players adjust to life outside of the game.

    I really hope he can find what he is looking for either in the game or out.

    Sookie sookie lay lay backs. Does one knee and the world ends.

    @BOZO sign him up. Stick him in the forward for the first half of the year. Harden the kid up. Teach him a thing or three about work rate, fitness and toughness.

    I know he has or had some family stuff going on in the background with his mum.

    Sports not just about the game but teaching these kids about over coming life's challenges as well. Taking off and running away isn't the answer Jamal.
