Sorry thats just not true re injuries resulting in the 100 point losses. Have a chat to club counsellours at the time on some key player meetings at end of 2015. Actually read timeline of Hockings article on AFL website recently which was the first time this had been brought up. See below
“The continuous barrage of questions and the fear of getting something wrong or saying something you’re not supposed to led to an anxious walk to into the club each day.
During the year, the continual stress of rocking up to cameras and inquiries about things we were all still grappling with wasn’t ideal for my mental health.
n late 2015, we had a team meeting and some general conversations started where a few teammates opened up about their troubles and I remember one player saying he got help outside of footy.
That was the turning point for me. Hearing a colleague — who is a teammate and a friend — say that really broke down that superman persona that AFL players have and I thought if they’re getting help, maybe it will help me. Seeing it work for them was the catalyst for me deciding to get some help.“ Hocking
