I'm trying to retrieve the value of a cms field inside a function but it does't work

In code.php

class SomeClassPage extends Page{
	static $db = array(
		'AutorizedContent'	=> 'HTMLText',
		'ForbidenContent'	=> 'HTMLText'


	function getCMSFields(){
		$f = parent::getCMSFields();
		$f->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.AutorizedContent', new HTMLEditorField('AutorizedContent'));
		$f->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.ForbidenContent', new HTMLEditorField('ForbidenContent'));
		return $f;

then I have

class SomeClassPage_Controller extends Page_Controller{


	function Authorise(){

								return $this->ForbidenContent;

in template

<% if Authorise %> $ForbidenContent<% end_if %>

Any idea
