Lately, apart from seeing to much of Benji Marshall on the footy show, and even he may fall into this dilemma: I've been noticing Andrew Ryan appearing week in and week out on various football shows on different channels; and now I'm seeing Nathan Hindmarsh's noggen pop up here and there. I'm sure there are others that you guys have noticed, but this is my concern. It seems like when a player's career is winding back they are jumping on the media bandwagon as quickly as possible. This is fine since I know they have to look after their long term survival. But I think this effects their club performance; they get softer and not as determined on the field; there are other things on their mind apart from leading their teams with all their heart and soul... and a soft option must be in the back of their mind especially if their team is struggling. The day I see a Manly player running the sideline and appearing constantly on football shows is the day I know they have gotten soft on the field and have other things on their minds. I know it is good to see the occasional appearance of KF and others because it is their moment in the sunshine, but if it ever becomes a regular thing I will be concerned.
