Ben Cousins, arguably one of the most talented people to ever play AFL, has been sentenced to 12 months in prison for breaching a violence restraining order and stalking his former partner.

Knowing Ben's troubled background, Fairsy questions whether being sent to jail is the best thing for his rehabilitation.

Richard from Deloraine believes the issue may lie within the way our prison systems manage those convicted, stating "prison needs to be a place of rehabilitation."

What are your thoughts?
