On 4RO Radio this morning 11-04-2013 Mr Keeffe stated that Billy Slater of the Melbourne Storm was a hypochonac and wouldn't take a needle.

I don't believe Billy Slater is a hypochonac and if he is a player that refuses to take a needle then there is one thing for sure, he'll never be accused of being a drug taker.

If Billy Slater lets nature take its course to heal an injury then he should be applauded, why would he want to risk doing more damage that has the possibility of side lining him longer all for the sake of a needle.

Its comments like this of Denis Keeffe that hurt our game and he'd be well advised to keep his mouth closed.
