Ben Cousins To Tigerland?

As many Aussie Rules fans would know, Richmond is currently attempting to give fallen West Coast Eagle star & 2005 Brownlow Medalist, Ben Cousins, a lifeline.

After being axed from the Eagles last year for repeat drug offences & overall bad behaviour, the Tigers have taken a keen interest & liking to Cousins, who Richmond say could fit right into their midfield, as he has superb ball skills & is extremely useful around the ground.
The Tigers are planning to put injured defender Graham Polak on the rookie list while he is still recovering from being hit by a tram earlier this year, as it seems he will not play next year. If this is approved this means Richmond will gain an extra pick in the Pre-Season draft, which could let them choose a youngster & possibly, Cousins.

The club is still in talks with the AFL about negotiating the deal which could lead to one of the greatest players of the last decade coming to Victoria.  For more on the Ben Cousins possible trade.
