    He has had a kid in hospital in intensive care for the latter part of the season. Was not sighted at the after game functions in the last few rounds. With footy finished he must need to catch up on time with missus and kid.

    Shows he has priorities in life right.

    This makes his end of season form even more impressive to play as he played in the last few games with a sick kid in the back of his mind is a testement to the man

    We could do a lot worse then have him as captain next year.

    Totally agree. Is exactly the sort of bloke who can lead a team by example.

    The team comes before some kids. That's the problem, some team members put other considerations before the footie effort, like legal studies, post footie employment, good looks, women, booze etc. Get your priorities right boys.

    I confirm what CW is saying.

    Personally it might be good if he doesn't do the Tri Nations thing. If we have no players invoolved we can have an uninterupted pre-season and get over niggling injuries.

    I am assuming that this was his own child

    If so it would be extreamly difficult to concentrate on work while your child was ill.

    The problem as I see it is the marriage thing. When a footballer gets married, the thing then is to arrive home in a car not an ambulance, hense the do or die stuff becomes the 'I do' (for the partner), not die (for the team). Then when kids appear it's more stress on the player to role model the semblance of sporting behaviour not the 'mongrel on the field' stuff that wins games, and to arrive home with both ears attached. I'm not against kids per se. Just our current footballers having them. (But it is lovely to see them carried around the grounds by their dads on their last match).

    SMH says withdrawal is due to impending birth of Kitey's 2nd child.

    Congrats in advance to the big fella

    Yeah, BK has been a pussycat since fatherhood struck him down.

    Are you a father? My experience was the opposite to what you're suggesting.
