He has just announced it, Ben Cousins has retired.

Sad to see a champ of the game go but is far from his best at the moment.

Great rundown of the full press conference here. Minute by minute, with lots of quotes from Ben. I wish I had've been there!!

Great player but will mostly be remembered for the wrong reasons.

Pity that! He said in his press conference that he would've liked to be remembered for the right reaons. Hope he stays in some form of football capacity, otherwise it will be interesting to see where he goes without the system of football to keep him from his demons!!

I always try and think about a players footy when I remember them.

for instance, Carey is a twat, but I respect/ed him as a player.

Yeah you have to try and put the personal issues to the side and admire their sheer talent football wise.

Did Cousins actually want to retire? Because he's clearly still in their best 22.

Is what he said. But a nudge is as good as a wink to a blind man.

No player would want to play to the extent he wasn't even in the best 22 of his side.

Quit while you are ahead, go out on a good note. All relative.
