    Wow, just amazing how many turns this has all gone through.


    PARIS - The Mathieu Bastareaud affair took a macabre new twist today as the boss of his club revealed the player had been admitted to hospital suffering from "serious psychological problems," while a press report said he had tried to kill himself.

    "He is completely wiped out," Max Guazzini, president of the Paris club Stade Francais, told the French news agency AFP.

    The well-informed sports daily L'Equipe, quoting what it described as "several sources close to the player," said Bastareaud had tried to commit suicide.

    Last week, Guazzini had said Bastareaud - in disgrace for falsely saying he had been attacked by thugs during les Bleus' stopover in Wellington - was heading for the French West Indies for a holiday.

    Today, though, he said Bastareaud had been placed in specialised facility in the Paris region, whose location was secret. He was likely to be there under observation for at least two weeks.

    This could be;

    A) a rumor, which wouldn't surprise me I guess.
    B) career ending, which would be a bloody shame that it happened to such a promising young player
    C) looked at as a mistake and a problem (both incidents smell to me like youthful exuberance gone awry) that can be overcome with specialist help.

    Whatever the case is, I hope its not B.

    It just keeps getting worse and worse for him, at least. It all looks like one big cover up to me.

    My gut feeling is that he's taking all the heat for something involving other players as well. I could be wrong, but it seems like team management might've wanted to sweep it under the carpet.

    Nahhh they are probably looking to hide something (and rightly so) but it looks like they have done a right **** job of it. I'd say its actually happening as they report it.

    Usually you look to see what else could go wrong, but I'd imagine this is pretty much as bad as it could get.

    My thoughts are with the french supporters and team in general here. This hasn't tarnished my view of them at all. The guys just made a terrible mistake really.

    Seems that Max Guazzini is somewhere at the origin of the decision for hospitalisation.

    To be reminded, radio told that Max took such a protection measure for one of his young and promitive players one decenny ago, a young player who was hesitating to head to the "dark side of the force" !
    This litlle Padawan was no one but Dominici...

    There are some aspecst of Max I'm not fan with, but to be reckognized here that he minds his own players

    He has unbelievable pace and quick feet for such a huge player, hands aren't the best though. Hope he sorts himself out, I'm a big fan of his after the 6N he had, especially the game against Wales.

    So I hope he will never get the point for psychiatric hospitalization

    And also he keeps playing in the same soul as you say he was great
