A Sheen Sheep is Shorn…
Reports last night from the Cougars camp is that their ‘tough man’ Scott Sheen will announce his retirement from the game as early as this week. The man they call ‘sheep’ – after following instructions from Coach Grills to cause opponents ‘a sense of uncertainty when in packs’ (and everybody has stopped running) – has a serious ankle injury that will not allow him to play as the club needs him to play. A Cougars official close to the coaching panel has explained that Sheen’s injury “will not allow him to get to enough stoppages to be able to pinch, poke and wedgie his opponents as in the past”. The official goes onto say “that his ankle is like a wet sail flopping in the breeze”.
It is also understood that the 28 year old has lost motivation for the game after getting the news that his wife is pregnant with their first child.
A Cougars player was heard at training last week describing that not only does Sheen have other things on his mind, but the slur his name received after his ‘Craig Kelly’ like pinching and ‘John Hopoate’ like antics last season, has Sheen feeling like he has had enough! The player continued, “He is now looking at life after football”.
Charlie's hero - checking the core temperature
Sheen omitted last year, that it was the worst time of his life and he was at the lowest point of his career.
Other reports is that Sheen’s relationship with Coach Grills has also been compromised with rumours spreading that Sheen blames Grills for the bad publicity as well as this latest decision from the coaching panel. This latest report from Cougar land could be huge distraction for the team as they prepare for he start of the upcoming season. When contacted for a comment, Stuey Grills merely said, "Hey, have you seen me new work truck? It's a bloody beauty!"
