Damo Barrett has Melbourne in the gun

The very last thing we need right now is to be involved in any sort of controversy.  We are slowly but surely starting emerge from the 'dung heap' of the last decade, but we are still in a 'fragile' state.  Any whiff of an odour emanating from what Barrett is peddling needs to be doused quickly, before it can impact in critical areas such as player retention and recruitment and memberships.  We don't need setbacks!

claims some qualification in biochemistry fwiw

He is a pharmacist from memory. Started higher studies in other areas but never finished them. On of the funniest Essendon supporters I have heard was defending Dank saying he did all the work for a Phd but didn't finish because he didn't write it up, WTF!

Meh. Not the least bit worried.

But if something does come of it, we take our medicine the Cronulla way.

Not rioting. The other one.

Suppositories??

Yeah, just brilliant.....

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

If I recall Dunn & some others had a Vitamin injection or something.

Anyway it was cleared because it was prescribed & documented.And injected by a qualified nurse I think.

As for Warriors report, he didn't state ASADA were interested in anyone other than Bock, based on Dank's BS.

He just likes to embellish things by implication and not statement of fact.

"From what I can tell he's got a physiology or pharmacology degree,'' Bishop, a research leader at Victoria University, said.

In February Dank told an interview with the ABC's 7.30 that he had a degree in biochemistry from the Queensland University of Technology, and was a PhD candidate (suspended last year) at the University of Sydney for a thesis on antioxidants.

It is believed Dank undertook a Masters degree in sports science at the University of NSW in the mid 1990s, but it is unclear whether he graduated.

"We have searched our system and have not been able to find a record of a Stephen Dank graduating from UNSW,'' a university spokeswoman said yesterday.

One of Dank's lecturers at the University of NSW, Kevin Norton, described him as a likable and intelligent student, but added "I can't say for sure that he qualified for his Masters."

"I'm not sure whether he graduated or not,'' Norton said.

I could remember it was one of the pharma's. Pretty sure I did read somewhere it was pharmacy, oh well, it doesn't really matter because he does appear to have some sort of qualification.

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.  

I am both weary and wary but there is a huge difference between the club engaging Dank or anyone else in a formal, legal sense and in the course of such engagement that person breaching AFL rules and having discussions with employees. Various people at the club "engage" with people on that level every day and it doesn't mean that any AFL rules have been breached or that anything sinister has taken place.

thanks chris.

if it was pharmacology or physiology it would just be a straight BSc degree (with one or both of these as a major i.e. 3rd year subject)

I know because i have a major in pharmacology not that it was ever of any use to me - lol

Story's dead, no-one's touched it since last night.

If there was a problem we'd know about it by now. 

Agrer 100% and i posted the same at 7:30am this morning. The fact that no one else has run with it after approx 20 hours now says all that needs to be said.

When slobbo broke the story about the filth with recreation drugs it was everywhere. No one at work today even mentioned it around the water cooler. 

Time to move on.

unless dank has hard evidence that asada is going to believe then this is going no where. Even if he has hard evidence he has already demonstrated that he is an uncooperative and unreliable witness so again, no action can be taken. He is just a monkey trying to rattle the bars to get attention, but a monkey looks cute, he just looks a fool.

Apparently Barrett is denying the use of multiple testosterone creams on his face.

Sauces on the beat of this information have indeed confirmed he has been taking loads facially as well as ingesting.

Many men are involved and Barrett is not confirming the reports as yet but his acne scarring has healed rapidly due to his man made concoctions according to anonymous reports.

    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. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
