Zac has issues as we all do. He chose the wrong way to deal with them as I bet so many others have done too, I know I have. He's picking himself and dusting himself off and going to try better and thats all you can ever do. Give him a break.

Buck up kiddo, or you are a goner!
It would be a pity, as you bring us great joy on the rugby field

I don't understand, if the 2 people who were actually physically hurt by Zac could forgive then why can't this woman do it? She says there is no consequences for his actions, yes I bet everything is just rainbows and butterflies for Zac at the moment, hey? Leave him alone, so that he can get the help he needs. I agree with Tom, lots of students his age are doing much worse things.

Welcome home Zac I guess time out on your busy schedule is unheard of. You already have a huge impact on the world because you are an All Black with a lot of fans that love you.There are many fans that can relate to your boozy behavior what do you say to them, its ok if I can do it as an All Black you can too...I think become the face of don't drink drive campaign or something similar,not only for Zac but for the team and the fans. Lead by example you will be an inspiration. Go! Zac Go!

The One thing that Makes Gillie I believe the correct choice as an All Black is just this. He admits he has a problem, he puts his hand up and isn't B.S'n about it trying to deny it and play it down, even if it was just a bad mistake, he realises that he has fans and he's a peer and showing that he is Human and can make mistakes and when he does he blames noone else but himself, for this Gillie you are a Kiwi and the Right Choice as an All Black to us Mate. Stay True Bro

It's quite obvious that young Zac has a problem with alcohol. From all accounts he is quite a nice guy ...but once the booze,to some, a mind changing drug,takes over then the problems commence.and the "blackouts"happen ! He cant recall what happens .... To Zac I say Put your pride in your pocket and admit you may be an alcoholic , seek help, go into rehab or better still go to AA! and listen to the stories and advice of your fellow All Blacks who have had the same problems as yourself and are today leading a successful life booze free! the same as myself with over 30 years booze free. Good Luck Zac! You have a lot of a better life ahead if you remain sober. There's more to life. for some------------without booze!
This is from an alcoholic with over 30 years sobriety.

This type of drunken behaviour is prevalent among people of Zac's age and throughout our society. Unfortunatley when you are a public figure you just can't get away with it. The media attention makes it a tremendous issue. The All Blacks can't control their players 24/7. The simple answer for Zac is quit until he learns how to moderate his drinking. Even though he is an adult it's obvious he shouldn't be allowed out on his own. I wish him luck but the stigma will be with him for a long time.
