Benny Cousins Regret: Why Didn't I Sign with Essendon?

28 July 2013, 9:30am

Between 1996 and 2010, Ben Cousins dominated the AFL. His achievements include a Brownlow Medal, multiple Most Valuable Player awards and he led the West Coast Eagles to a premiership victory in 2006. We all loved Benny.

Sadly, Cousins career was soured by a series of off-field indiscretions which eventually saw him delisted from West Coast in 2007. It was a sad day for every true Eagles fan.

The Bell Tower Times had an opportunity to speak to Cousins recently, when we found him wandering around Fremantle aimlessly on Saturday afternoon. We asked him about how he was going:

"I am livid mate. All this Essendon doping business going down. It's bullshit mate. Why wasn't Cuzzy told that Essendon was the club to be at? hey? 
I spent 11 years of my life at the Eagles and i didn't get even one sniff of a peptide....not one sniff for Cuzzy. 
I can say, without hesitation, my biggest regret is not signing with Essendon. Its the worst thing I have ever done.... oi mate, let Cuzzy borrow ya mobile phone for a second? Just need to make a call".
Cousins attempted to call the Essendon Football Club for reasons that are unclear to us.
