THE SAGA CONTINUES - WADA APPEALS



Recommended Posts

True. Will there be a C Wilson long piece on Sat about it?

Dont think so.. She could only write one if she had info via the AFL.. The AFL would have its knuckles wrapt if that were the case

But why don't we even hear reports of who has gone into the court etc?

Beacuse the AFL have learnt to keep the circus to a minimum, and the Journos have nothing with out the AFL or EFC telling them what to write.

true chris, but having nothing has never stopped them before :lol:

The Journos love having their accreditation though, it is a bit hard to report on the AFL when the AFL wont let you in!

And just like the AFL, the IAAF will go all the way, in ensuring it can appear tough, while ensuring all of the big name countries are available for the Olympics.

Would be a bit concerned if I was a smaller player, as they will surely want to whip a scapegoat, to appease the public.

Yeah, if you havent guessed, I have no faith whatsoever in the integrity of sport, all around the world right now. While there is financial gain available, there will be cheating.

Please excuse me, while I take a break from my commentary on this situation, for a word from SportsBet, on the latest odds of the IAAF chasing this impartially, and without regard to politics.......As a bonus, if your bet is favored to miss the Olympics, but is given a last minute reprieve by IAAF, you get money back, up to $100.

Edits for jetlag spelling, and headache.

Looks like the players fronted up to give evidence to CAS: http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/essendon-players-give-evidence-at-court-of-arbitration-for-sport-hearing-20151119-gl3cty.html

No news of other witnesses appearing.

If Charter, Alvi et al weren't called to appear WADA had a good reason not to.

Would suggest confidence in their case.

As I understand it witnesses for CAS are under oath (unlike at the AFL Tribunal).

One of the players called as a witness was Jobe Watson.

He strikes me as an honest person who has led his team thru this saga with grit.

I can't imagine he would not tell the truth.

I hope there not guilty they only have 14 players left on there list and we have one tied away for 4 years, there's no benefit to us anymore for them to be found guilty.

Wada need to send a message.

Big time.

Systematically inject 90% of your players with god knows what and suffer the consequences.

I disagree. At the end of the day footy is 22v22.

If one set of 22 has an advantage because they took whatever - even if due to support staff - then they have cheated.

Not to mention health concerns etc with injecting unknown substances....

This is a line in the sand moment in our sport - give an inch and unscrupulous people at unscrupulous clubs will stretch it big time.

The players ARE ultimately responsible and must be punished: unfortunately 2.5% of our list may be part of it.

But the big losers must be those who planned and executed the scam, all of whom must have lifetime bans.

I know from experience we all have turning points in our lives, and we can usually remember them.

This could be one of those for a few people and they will find then that it will transcend anything sports wise in importance.

They are already spinning the silence by being silent themselves as though it no longer matters (the "move on" factor). The last desperate stand at OK corral Edited by Dees2014

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
