Any new evidence may make that irrelevant.

Nothing to see here. Just shows that Barrett is a [censored] and someone at Essendon must have incriminating pictures of Dank with a goat or something, as he seems to have records from a short time at Melbourne, but nothing for nearly a year at Essendon ...

This little story surfaces the week we play the Pies, who are desperate for a win, as are we, though, they are playing far worse than us and are getting caned in the media.

It comes hot on the heels of an admission, by Bucks and Eddie, that the recent Pies drugs story affected their games.

Anyone see this [censored] on the footy show tonight.  He has tried to connect us with Dank and supplements scandle over 3 years now..He will not leave it alone and now suggests that WADA is going to reopen a case on us. 

The club needs to get on the front foot and smash this [censored]. He is a parasite. 

 

What if he's right?

Hopefully he is not, though:

No mention of injecting players.

Only mention was of Craig asking him about testosterone of players. 

Craig has denied any wrongdoing.

We were investigated and cleared. 

I think AOD was mentioned and that has been cleared by ASADA.

We are dealing with a statement allegedly made by a totally discredited, banned, low life, who ASADA would not trust at all.

It comes out in the week we play the Pies.

Even if there was substance to this -  we'd just do a Cronulla Sharks plead deal with backdated suspensions - no one would follow Bombers path ever again -  and ASADA wouldn't want to be in Courts again.

But jeez that Barrett is grub  -  was obviously bullied at school.....

Unfortunately, Dank was involved at many clubs, and I'm sure there would be a few club chiefs sweating on what this erratic nutcase is going to say next.

And it serves clubs right for getting involved with such a piece of work, potentially including us.

Poor Damian cant handle the though of the Demons once again being a force

We have the youngest in the league team and yet we almost rolled his beloved decrepit Kangaroos.full of grandpas.

And he knows full well we had the likes of Garlett, Petracca, Brayshaw, Weideman and Trenners either unavailable or waiting in the wings.

Damo keep crapping yourself son, the Dees are coming hard and the Kangas will once again be pretenders.

I haven't been able to bring myself to open the Bombers Swiss Adventure thread and I cringe at the righteousness re. the Essendon 'drug cheats' on here. I've been dreading something like this for a while now and my MFCSS fully expected it to spring up once we were seemingly on the rise. We were up to something shifty and it strangely and quietly went away after some early stern words in the media from Vlad. Dank is a [censored] of the highest order with a huge ego and a vengeful mind who holds a lot of secrets. Barret is a [censored] of the highest order with a bullied-kid ego and a vindictive mind who is told a lot of secrets by other vindictive minds. This isn't good and there's no point sitting in the pulpits pointing out that these guys are pricks. The only advantage is that we now have friends at AFL house. If this breaks, the board should immediately announce we're taking the previous administration to court for wilful mismanagement. It could serve to alter the Ship of Theseus perceptions that underlie sporting clubs and give the AFL and media something to work with.

Investigated, cleared, have records and from memory any injections the players were having back then were from the doctor. Not some nurse in an off site tanning salon.

Can't be investigated again unless new evidence comes to light and Dank has said he wont speak to ASADA.

Also if this story had legs, don't you think other journo's would also be all over it? Yet as of 7:30am this morning, nothing on the AFL, The Age or Herald Sun websites.

What are the odds this story disappears after sunday?

I don't understand the casual dismissiveness here based on no inside knowledge. I probably feel like the pessimists felt when idiots like me were predicting a twelve goal win against the Dons. Time to quietly back out of this thread for my own sanity. I wish PJ all the best. This may come to be his biggest test.

Funny how Dank can now say all sorts of things about Bock and us yet is still silent on the Dons. I wonder when he will try and put Geelong in the gun.

Dank is like the soldier in the war movie who's terminally wounded and seizes up and as he collapses his machine gun goes off sending bullets flying in every direction. Everyone has to duck for cover until it's over.

Maybe if we did cheat he just wants everyone that cheated to be treated the same. His form of fair and equitable treatment. 

His form of fair and equitable treatment is getting a payout like his mate Robinson.

Having Dank on the books doesn't mean we have anything to worry about.  Last time I checked, it wasn't illegal to employ a sports scientist.  

Didn't we claim Dank wasn't on the books? It's probably illegal to mislead an ASADA enquiry.

That's why this will go nowhere. Even stuff he says that might be true will be treated with deep scepticism.

Didn't ASADA just reopen a case on Bock based on some Dank scuttlebut?

In relation to the Bock case.

The national anti-doping agency said Dank continued to be unhelpful.

The statement also said that ASADA needed reliable evidence to pursue doping allegations.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
