    Some people seem to lose all sense of perspective. You can like or dislike players, like or dislike teams, but to be gleefully kicking someone when they're down is not ok. In the grand scheme of things Foran is not a bad bloke, he has never been in the headlines for harassing or assaulting women, salary cap dramas, racism, cheating, etc.

    It seems he is going through a really tough period in his life, being young, famous and rich and seemingly having it all does not guarantee happiness. It does not make you immune from mental health issues. I feel badly for him, I hope things get better and he is back playing footy asap.

    Going by a snippet in a paper a few weeks back it may well be sadly.

    Hope he comes good soon. But why are there different classes of mental illness? Or drugs? Foran has healh problems, those Souths boys od'd last year foran this year, Buddy has health problems, Andrew Johns gets treated like a mutt, called every name under the sun. Just sayin...

    When you play for Parra an overdose would be very tempting.

    I hope the kiwis reach out to him and see if he would like to go in to camp with them...

    Obviously not as a player... Just to get into the environment with all the brothers...

    I know that kiwi group are pretty tight... They might be able to rally around him and give him a lift...

    He certainly deserves it.. He's certainly a big part of our success...

    Parra looked good tonight without Foran. Shows what an overrated plodder he is. Then again they were playing the Bulldogs whose coach is well and truly past his use by date.

    The guy is in hospital for something quite serious. Something more important than any career or sport. But yet you feel the need to open your post with "I don't respect the bloke". Why say that? What relevance does your lack of respect towards him have?

    By saying that you don't respect him and following it up with well wishes, does that some how mean you're a bigger person than others who do like him? Your compassion is greater than others because it's supersedes your dislike for him?

    It was the first thing he posted ...He is clearly still sooking over Foran leaving.
    Which is ironic considering the amount of top quality players Manly pinched off poor
    clubs through the years.
