I hope he watched Friday night's game and realised that money can't buy you everything. He would have seen the camaraderie, the big crowd atmosphere, the result and how young Tommy's name is being lauded and then ran out to a few thousand at the Gold Coast and thought WTF! That could have been me.Ash to me just seems to have lost his enthusiasm for the game. I reckon he knows he should have moved clubs and is regretting it now. I still think there is a very good halfback there, but i also doubt he is going to achieve what he is capable of.
I do hope the boys who never took the money like Tommy, and Patty really kick on and become superstars. It might, as someone else said, make others coming through the system look at Ash's situation and think twice before grabbing the bucks. In fact his situation may have already influenced those two to a degree.
