Yeah i also doubt our hands are completely clean in this... but i also find all these accusations by dank sudden and suspicious. Like why did he wait till after the Bock case was closed (rightly or wrongly) before making a clear concise confession like that? And why does he confess to that and what may or may not have happened at melbourne but maintain that what he did at the bombers was fine? Its all very strange.

Because he still thinks what he has done everywhere is fine. He checked with ASADA remember.

Plan B from Dank?

Who knows, nobody knows much about Dank and he keeps it that way. 

Like BB says it is a very uncomfortable situation

i also would love to know Barrett's sources on these new allegations...

Barretts sources are often from head office. I can't get any good reason in my head why head office would want this shared, unless it is to protect Collingwood and we truly are the whipping boy of the league.

me too, no mention of this anywhere else. so does that mean he got the info directly from dank?

Exactly. Barrett may have spent time with Dank & seen solid evidence

Dank definately wants to throw Bombs, only he knows in which direction...

This source must be outside AFL HQ. They want it all to fade away

It is not good for the Broadcast Rights...But we wait and see...

Barrett did say the AFL have told Dank to refer any information to ASADA, that would have to be a first that they want things done the right way, but it also takes it out of the media spotlight as ASADA have shown to not leak, unlike the AFL. 

I just watched what he had to say and all it essentially was was Dank saying Craig asked how to manage or increase testoterone. That is a fair question from a coach as long as it is followed by, it has to be legal. May well be nothing in that at all. Barrett also said he has seen documents from that time but does not say what the documents were or what they related to. Also didn't point out that Dank can't seem to do the same for the dons. 

This really is a piece of reporting (I don't think journalism is the right word) that is up their with Slobbo putting the pies in it even though there were worse clubs, and Robbo got the facts wrong. It is reporting for reportings sack with no fact and no details. Just a bit of slander. Barrett should realise that if he is going to do this then he should come out and back it up with facts or evidence.

Saty is the definition of a (clears throat) "dedicated fan".

 

If he says dank wasn't there, he wasn't there.

I reckon if there's no photo of his guns, he wasn't there :) (just jokin' Saty!)

Bob, can you define what you mean when you say "engaged in some capacity at MFC"? 

No further than having discussions with Bates and exchanges with Dunn as presented on the 7.30 report some time ago. I'm sure there is more information available if you go looking but frankly I can't be bothered.

He was "around".  That's enough to make me very weary.

Never given any cred to anything Warrior had to say. Ambulance chaser.

And if what he has to say is based on what Dank says...well... I call BS x2.

The facts are out there.

Dank was dealing with our doctor at the time.

We were on the cusp of employing him when the Essendon story broke...backed away quick & flicked the doctor.

Trengove was given AOD cream but that has been cleared.

 

This matches my information.

I don't rate anything Barrett says about the game of football, he hasn't got a clue. Unfortunately unlike most of us he does have a platform & microphone to spew out his dribble on the game itself.

...however football politics and the issues that go on around football are another matter. There is no point slamming him on this and sounding like a bunch of EFC supporters shouting conspiracies. Lets see how it pans out, it might be filling in some news with some Dank ramblings or it might go deeper.

Barrett has not been one of the Robbo men on the EFC saga and is also not a Dank apologist. He is pretty good at this stuff, I just hope he is on the wrong track here.

Yep. Remember Barrett was the first to go with this story. 

It was Barrett who interviewed Reimers...

Unless Saty is Dank . . .

Skuit, you're taking a huge risk. If Saty is Dank, you could be sued, because that's Dank's strategy to everything. If Saty is not Dank, you could be sued by Saty for hurtful slander and defamation.

Legal disclaimer: I'm not saying Saty is or isn't Dank or that Dank is or isn't Saty. Or any other combination.

After everything that has gone on with Dank it appears that he is doing everything he can to discredit the AFL and ASADA at every turn. Waiting until Bock is cleared AND THEN declaring to the world, not the investigators, that Bock is guilty and he had the proof smacks of someone who is purely looking for revenge on the competition and the investigators. 

This latest but with Melbourne again is him trying to destroy the fabric of the competition and Barrett is happy to begin patsy to see newspapers and make him seem like a "news breaking" journalist. If he had any credibility or integrity he would ignore all calls from Dank. But he's those are words he removed from his vocabulary a long time ago. 

And did we not keep records and produce all information regarding anything that we were involved with and ASADA were satisfied? 

Low hanging fruit, Barrett going after an easy target.

I recall Dunn's name also coming up at that particular time. And I don't think it was the ointment.

We have the perfect defense in any case.

We have to be found guilty of taking performance enhancing drugs.

We either didn't take performance enhancing drugs or if we did, we definitely need to ask for our money back.

Placebos and they didn't bloody work!

Zero medical qualifications, not sure what qualifications you need to be a sports scientist. Phys Ed degree?

There ar a number of suitable uni degrees in sports science, applied science, human movement, exercise and sports science, etc.

Dank has nadda.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    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

    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
