THE SAGA CONTINUES - WADA APPEALS



Recommended Posts

Shane Charter continues to wade around in mirky ponds!:

"The self-styled biochemist known as "Dr Ageless", Shane Charter, appears to have shrugged off the Essendon supplements scandal and is pursuing a new business venture — chasing more than $11 million hidden in offshore tax havens by notorious conman Peter Foster".

Leopard's don't change their spots!!

The existence of the '$11 million' will probably turn out to be just another of Foster's cons. Hope that Charter gets his fingers well and truly burned on this.

Which bits are defamatory?

If it is repeating what is already in the public domain (ie newspapers) there isn't really an issue. If its calling Peter Foster a conman, well he has served time for that. If its calling Shane Charter dodgy well its true.

A good question 'bub.

#3568 is at worst ambiguous in any suggestion it makes about players and evidence (which I observed at the time so it's my fault if I've missed anything defamatory, although I doubt whether I have). And since #3569 challenges the preceding post I can't see how that's a problem.

Look, I don't want to continue the debate about what's defamatory and what's not. But to explain what I mean, I was referring primarily to the second para in #3568. I know BB has strong views on this subject but assertions of particular behaviours by the AFL and its tribunal remain, in my mind, unfounded. And just to be fair to BB, I shouldn't have picked out his post in isolation. There are a few other posters saying essentially the same thing. Just because many posters say it is so doesn't necessarily mean that it is.

according to the hun

the cas hearing wrapped up at 7pm on friday

now the long wait for a verdict

Amazing how much silence there has been around the hearing. Virtually nothing. Didn't even see this in the HUN.

you realise of cause the essential element of defaming goes to the idea of besmirching a name or reputation.. As I was essentially discussing the AFL.......well ...I'll just leave it there shall I :unsure::rolleyes:

Do we seriously suggest that with the Essendon players under oath, the club locked out of proceedings, and therefore the intimidation factor gone (although I do admit the players association is a constant presence and they appear to be in the Pay of Hird and Little), that there will not be at least some of the players who tell it as it was, particularly those at the periphery. They have already courageously started to emerge, positioning themselves for the pay day in front of them.

Essendon in the face of the CAS/WADA force will not be able to resist the wall falling down, and I have no doubt at least some of the players will have told the truth about what happened to CAS. You only need one or two, and the whole edifice crumbles.....

Do we know how many have retired and therefore would not be as effected as those still playing. I realize that their reputation and legacies would be damaged, but they do have less to lose career-wise than those still playing.

And there may well be a class action against EFC sometime down the track - giving sworn evidence that all was Kosher would not be in the interests later on, especially if unfortunately there develop some health issues.

WADA and CAS (l put them together deliberately knowing that several on here will have a "pink fit" because in this particular case the way which the case is conduced is primarily the responsibility of the Court ie CAS, with the co-operation of the prosecution) learnt much from their action against Armstrong. They realised then how difficult it was to get to the truth inside a court with a media circus circus outside, particularly one heavily manipulated by professional media spin doctors biased to one side, hand in hand with vested interest media proprietors. Hence a closed court, witnesses giving testimony via video links so there is no ambush as they go in and out of the court, and those who work on the case both here and in Switzerland/Montreal sworn to secrecy.

There are no leaks coming out of those organisations hence nothing to spin. And aren't we all better off for it.

For those who have ended their AFL careers, or are close to it, you would think they would have an interest in seeing the truth emerge particularly if that truth reveals that Hird, Essendon, and/or the AFL were directly or indirectly responsible for breaking the law. That would then make them vulnerable for law suits with substantial damages attached. Isn't it natural for people who lose their primary source of income ie football to seek further compensation if they can, particular if in the course of their employment there wasn't due care taken with their health? For many this would be a chance of a lifetime, one that at least some will choose to take in the event of a guilty verdict from CAS.

Nothing to do with a pink fit, it's just at times your linking of them as a seemingly single entity is as misguided as some EFC supporters belief in the conspiracy against them.

You don't need to do it to reinforce you stance, it adds nothing...we're on your side.

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.

Sport reduced to self-centred opportunism is no sport at all: it has lost it's raison d'être.

The benefit to us is in upholding at least something of the spirit of sportsmanship and the the ideal of a fair and equal contest inside the white line.

It is the difference between the premiership medal which James Frawley was given, and the premiership medal which Nathan Jones will earn.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
