Why? Are you basing this on some abstract notion about an esprit de corps, or a loyalty to the game that started to wither with the amateur era? He's a bloke with a strange mind, who has just split from his family, and who is perfectly entitled to make his own decisions about his own life. I, for one, don't know why he's decided to do it, and I'm kinda sad, because I know he won't ever play for the Os again, but I wouldn't presume to judge it. It's just a man making some decisions about how he wants to conduct his life. Nothing more, nothing less. Hasn't got a lot to do with you, and hasn't got a lot to do with me.
