Prime, TV1 and TV3 all led with "the Jimmy Cowan story" last night.

That story being: "second-rate employee of high-profile company has been on a few benders lately, and made an arse of himself."

The poor bastard was absolutely surrounded by cameras and sanctimonious journalists upon emerging from the NZRFU offices (which look a bit like a pre-dairy boom milkshed actually).

He was "suitably" contrite for media purposes, but might well have asked the lazy fucking hacks whether they've ever been out on benders themselves. And whether said benders have ever led to embarrassment and brushes with the law. And, if so, whether their employers insisted they go teetotal.

Get a grip, people: his is only a "rolemodel" (TM) in so far as he can catch a ball, run with it, pass it (and stop opposing players from doing same). What he does in his spare time is none of his employer's business, providing it does not significantly affect his ability to work.

And it's none of the public's fucking business whatsoever.

You wonder where we’re heading when we get all moralistic about someone getting drunk like that and the masses start demanding he gets sacked etc…

..yet we let the same player get away with one of the worst haircuts of all time.
