Heard a talk by the Richmond mindfulness guru/coach/adviser/whatever. The position sounds like the biggest wankfest ever but it was a really interesting conversation about unlocking mental barriers and helping people play without fear or worry. The main case study was Dustin Martin, who it was implied is dumb as a post but got right into this stuff just when his career started to go through the roof. Many other players jumped on board after.
I'm glad we have a psych in some capacity now, because we certainly didn't at least 2011-2013 when it might have come in handy. Will never forget the crisis meeting they had in 2012 when I asked Neeld if we had a sports psych or similar to help players deal with the trauma of being thrashed every week and he said it wasn't necessary because if any players felt stressed they could talk to a coach. What a putz.
