Ache's agent has called him with the good news for the change. Ache's career situation has been challenging both from sport perspective and even more so personal life/character development/mental health treatment perspective lately. Now he has been approached by the team that is interested of making him a long term project for them. If all goes well, they will buy out Ache's current contract and sign him in near future. This option would be great sport wise, end Ache's journeyman days (though he would still continue team hopping a bit this year, there would be a commitment to this team), give him a possibility to continue working the kinks out of his game and be in position there his development is a priority to his coaches instead of just taking any service they need out from him. And while all that would of course be nice, and that is what Ache is excited about, the bigger thing is, that this would make it possible for Ache to settle down. Even if playing for several teams this season, those teams and cities would be close by; an hour ride and so on. And that actually means ability to make some longer term plans for his therapy etc. And it does get even better. The person who wants Ache, and who has pull to make it happen, is one of those, who actually know Ache and his issues quite well. Do know about his mental health issues etc. He has made it clear, that they will insist the contract clause for Ache to follow the treatment plan his psychiatrist recommends. Funny thing is, that this person is quite a top of list of people who would have no reason to make any favours to Ache. One whom Ache really let down in the past. He has been good to Ache even after it and he seems to like Ache, but I'm still surprised he would be willing to take a risk with Ache again. Of course he is one of those who best know Ache's potential too. When it comes to issues related to mental health etc. sport world in general is usually really good at raising awareness. And when something is going on amongst their own, they are very supportive from distance. If things in that field come up, you can prepare to massive load of supportive messages is Twitter, even high-ups and your childhood idols reaching out to bat your back and telling how brave you are and how they wish you well. But when it comes to anything more concrete, you will find out that you have apparently been infected by leprosy, that is how far they will go round you. Or if they absolutely have to (like when you are under contract when it comes up) they will tell everyone how they will support you every step on the way - and dump you to some treatment (cheapest they dare to offer) far away from their team as quickly as possible. With good luck that treatment option may actually be a good fit, but it may not (I know about at least one atheist and one Muslim with substance abuse issues who were dumped to very Christian rehab, that on it's own website tells that their first priority is for their patients to find God and sobriety was only the after-effect from that. But hey, it was convenient to the team! Compared to that my son's ill timed coerced GA membership wasn't bad at all. And had he actually had other options to choose from but that one meeting dominated by that whackjob, it probably wouldn't had harmed him much at all.) Ach, sorry for the rant. My point is, if this would actually go through, it would be really great. And my faith for human kind would again go up a notch or two because of this guy.
