As previously suggested.

Guilty. 2 years less voluntary suspensions. All bans from tomorrow.

I.e about 19 months 

Anyone who wants to put Melksham above decency and justice has a rather warped sense of values I have to admit.

If there are no rules and adherence to them you have anarchy.

Agree with this. The only fair outcome, considering the stalling/lying/cheating/covering up that has occurred.

Little has done a great job at hosing this down, by delaying he has been able to swap out some of the players to reduce the final impact that any penalty will have on the club. They have effectively diminished the punishment significantly.  Now if they get banned for 6-12 months there is a good chance they will finish down low or possibly even bottom of the ladder giving them valuable draft picks in this years draft. So next year with new draftees and new picks and their full list returned they should be in a very good position for next year. All in all I think a lot of essendon supports will be happy with that outcome considering how bad it could have been.

Not if they are found guilty.

The cost to the club from players taking legal action will be a big, big issue, not to mention cost for them.

If found guilty, I believe there should be seismic decisions made against this club.

I would be looking at being disbanded. Just from a role model perspective alone. Not even with a secondary consideration of the AFL.

I do not believe in another consideration.

They will be unbearable if not guilty

Self imposed ban of any media, social or otherwise, at least until the tennis finishes and the pre season starts.

While I agree with this thought process, will never happen. The fl ogs are to "valuable" to the TV $$$$.

Could care less about Melksham being embroiled with the ban. I want these cheats to pay for what they did and I want Hird nailed to the wall and disgraced.

A 12 month ban for a player we paid through the roof for this past trading period would be a garbage result for the MFC.

For the record:

Verdict: guilty

Sanction: 2 years, backdated to SCN ie Oct 2014.  Further backdating for delays (Fed Court) out of player control ie back to first round of SCN's in June 2014.  Therefore, suspension period expires June 2016 earlier if CAS find other mitigating circumstances.  Players miss 10 to 12 games.

CAS remove Watson's brownlow.

CAS take no action against coaches, management or other support staff.

They simply cannot get allowances for every delay.

Do people really think that a drug case like this would have been decided overnight, even if the records had been produced?

True, we could just add him to the list of others that are currently cashing in, I can think of at least 4.

Most of the delays have been caused by the club or its employees.

Coaches management and staff should be banned for life. Partic. the Doc

I don't think the delays should or will be taken into account given that it was the EFC and players who initiated them.

It would free up a spot for a rookie to be promoted.  Mitch White looked OK in his one game last year.

What time AESDT for any announcement ?

It's a cold cold night here in Helsinki but a guilty with bans would warm me up :)

    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.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    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
