Well worth sharing 👌An open letter from David Baggio (current World No1 Referee)

To NSW Touch Association

I don’t write on social media but I thought it appropriate after the number of messages people have sent me personally the last few days, that maybe you could post the below on my behalf.

I wish to firstly thank you, NSW Touch, for your continued support of not only me but also the refereeing arm of the sport. I don’t ask for these types of posts and I really just wanted to go out and referee a game on the weekend just to see where I'm personally at with my rehab.

I also would like to thank my family for their help and support over the last year. Without them, I don’t know where I would be. Apparently, I am not a very good patient and a very demanding person when I can’t move around. For the people that know me well they know how much family means to me along with my touch family as well.

I also would like to thank my work. Their continued support over the past year has been amazing. They not only allow me the time off to attend tournaments but have been especially supportive during the past year with my injury.

To my close friends and referee mates (you all know who you are), thank you for being in constant contact with me and putting a smile back on my face during these tough times.

To those I didn’t reply to or answer their calls I am sorry and I hope you understand.

I can tell you it has been a tough 14 months, the doubt of knowing whether I will ever get back to where I was, is one that has played on my mind and still does.

As I said before for the people who know me, I don’t talk much nor let on that there is a problem BUT I have learned over the past year that opening up and talk about things isn't a bad thing or a sign of weakness. It has helped my mental state immensely.

"Yes, I have an injury so what get over yourself" was my line of thinking. There is always someone worse off than you. And there is.

But what I never realised when obtaining a serious injury, is the mental aspect you struggle with.

I can openly say - I have struggled mentally and for me, that took time to come out and say.

Yes, there is a physical scar from the result of the surgery but the mental scar has been worse.

I don’t big note myself but to be at the top of my game for so many years, it now scares me that I may never get back to where I was, and mentally this plays on my mind.

Players have the same issues. Look at our sport and the current top-end players currently injured at the moment.

I really do hope they are okay and that they have a support structure around them to help them through these tough times. Tough times that I only truly now know, how hard it can be.

Missing the NSW State Cup was hard but not being able to run at Nationals was worse. I was there physically but my mental state sent me over the edge at times. Knowing I was so close to the sideline and not being able to cross it and go do what I love, near broke me.

The last day of Nationals was the worse. I was so proud of all the referees and the way they were working together as a unit, all trying to obtain that Australian Number 1 ranking but deep down knowing that I wouldn't be on a Men's Open Grand Final and no longer hold the Australian No1 ranking, was a hard pill to swallow.

I just struggled.

I missed running games with my mates, having a good game, working as a team of 3 all in sync and on the same consistent refereeing page.

But I'm ok with that now. It's just taken time.

I need to thank Kim Skelly, Tony Calabria, and Rob Bowen for allowing me to run their water or at least hobble around on the sideline up at Nationals. You guys saved me.

I wasn't named in the State of Origin Squad and yes at the time I was absolutely devastated and to be honest ... I still am as THATS the event I had my eye on for a return. I understand the decision and am slowly coming to terms with it.

I will be at Origin just in a different capacity - Referee Mentor. And I'm pretty excited about that. I'll even throw in a tip now to all Origin Referees "remember you need to run hard in your first game to set up your next two games, and I am always there if you need a water runner or just someone to talk to"

So I am guessing the moral of the story is, it's okay to show your weaknesses and let your support people know you are struggling because as I've found out, talking actually helps.

So on a final note the actual injury is close to being 100% BUT right now I know I am definitely not 100% fit but I feel good. After having a run at the Junior Regionals on a Boys 18's game I'm comfortable with where my rehab is.

Once again NSW Touch Association thank you for your support.

Regards

David Baggio
NSW Touch Football would like all our athletes to know, that you are not alone and if we (our association) can help in anyway please reach out. If you are or anyone you know is struggling please contact Beyond Blue

Wow what a beautiful story thank you for sharing your struggles. It takes guts to open up n speak about your personal trials and I’m glad that you find comfort in talking about because suffering in silence is not a sign of weakness at all. ❤️❤️
