In my opinion, it seems throughout the story that Hooper is seldom joyous or happy, and he is always miserable and sorrowful. It is first shown when Elizabeth, his soon to be wife, threatens to abandon Hooper and their marriage if he does not remove the dark, black veil. He practically begged her to stay, but she ultimately refused because he did not remove the veil. Also, going back to the children, it is obvious that Hooper is devastated when he cannot even watch the children romp around. Likewise, Hooper can also not have ordinary conservations with people throughout the town.

Greg Alexander also said “For 60 Minutes to portray Cameron Smith as the villain in the Alex McKinnon story I thought was unfair and unbalanced.” “They had every opportunity to go to the Melbourne Storm and seek a comment from them or get a comment from Cameron Smith but decided not to do that because that didn’t suit their story.” 60 Minutes also failed to broadcast the times where the whole Storm team arrived at the hospital to see Alex, three times. “Look, Cameron Smith wasn’t in the tackle. And watching that back in hindsight and what Cameron Smith said, look I’m sure Cameron Smith would be thinking ‘I wish I did it a bit differently’ but not there and then,” Greg continues.
