Greg Bird could equal John Hopoate's record as the most suspended player. He is just 14 weeks short and could get his chance at Manly. Birdy has 31 weeks and sits third on the ladder. His off field indiscretions include many intoxicated run ins, two charges off violence on women ( both overturned, one after a conviction and a 16 month custodial sentence was handed Down) a charge of cocaine use and of urinating on a police car. Bird is said to be fcuking stoked to be getting the opportunity to break Hopoate's record at Manly and believes he will take Buhrer's leadership role in 2017.
