Because it is his choice as a professional,  As we are virtually anonymous on here, he has a right to be the same if he so chooses.

so why then did foxsport publish a whole article based on an anonymous lawyer

is that how you prefer your news?

Yep, Lawyers do that all the time and magistrates/ judges are just too dumb to see through the charade. ?

I understand the sarcasm..not without cause. There are some Magistrates though whose determinations seem lame beyond belief. This is out in the public now and the various and nefarious players will be wanting to establish the "narrative" ( dont you just love that word...SOoooooo buzzy makes you fuzzy !!) 

Not all courts are created equal.

You will need to ask them that question.

I don't remember this being the case with Geelong...

I do remember it with the West Coast in the 90's though.

In Geelongs case it seems to be guilt by association...the weapon and bomber.

I agree on the 'look' but were we looking that closely?  Seems to me we were taken aback by how well they started playing. 

But let's not forget Dr Ageless was also involved down there and therefore the connection (by default) to Dank. 

Nothing will ever come of it though.  Because no one will ever spill the beans - they'd be incriminating themselves and whoever does that rjay?

No, but apparently AFL Tribunals are.

Yep, everyone shuts up and we may only hear anything different if the players when they all turn about 50  start developing some weird cancers, neurological or heart conditions. Pro wrestling rife with substance abuse for a long time has had an unusualy large incidence of premature deaths when wrestlers reach middle age. A truth that dares not speak its name perhaps.

If we look back over a long time, there is suspicion of teams and players taking "supplements".

Going all the way back to the 70s there were players who became "huge" over summer. There were stories of gymnasiums  supplying more than weight equipment. Perhaps not systemic but body shapes and muscle development told a story. I think in the 90s with the growth of the sports science industry there was a more organized or team approach.

There are no clean skins in this business.  

IMO all premierships since say 1964 should be declared null and void

Maybe it isn't. 

A number of teams over the journey ( Bomber , Robinson et al ) have mysteriously "re-invented" themselves over a summer.We arent talking a few kg of mass or tone...and certainly no one in these cases dropping weight.

There's a real world out there Saty... you're most welcome to join it.

Bomber Thomson has nothing whatsoever to do with AFL in 2018, the rest is now history

He is now, similar to Ben Cousins and Jake King an alleged criminal or idiot whichever comes first

I guess you had to be there rjay.  I clearly remember turning to bro at the game (rnd 3 2007 MCG) when both teams ran out before the bounce and making a major point about how much beef/muscle they had added as a team compared to 2006.  He was in full agreement.

Obviously this was way before the Essendrug scandal or any notion of 'the weapon' connection.

I find it hilarious, especially after seeing the Essendon banner last weekend (snow joke). After watching the B-grade news tonight I threw a few quiet fist pumps in the air. That smart-ass infested club really is cementing their drug-related reputation.

Hmmm. Trafficking these narcotics in some countries carries the death penalty.

I agree, but for the avoidance of any doubt let's also make clear that the runner up doesn't get the premiership by default. I couldn't bear the thought of Collingwood being rewarded for giving me so much enjoyment every time they came second.

The items in the locked room are reported to have Bomber's DNA on them. 

The largest item seized during the raid was 839.7 grams of MDMA which reportedly was not in the locked room.  Re this item: 

"Senior Constable Bourke said the 839.7 grams of MDMA was contaminated by the clandestine drug unit so DNA could not be found but police were still investigating a connection between these drugs and the 54-year-old".

So much more to play out on this. We will be hearing about for some time.

"Silks" lining up to take the brief.

I don't understand this dna contamination of the 839gm of mdma

i always understood they could detect (differentiate) multiple dna profiles in a sample and could therefore at least determine if there was any dna from thompson even where there was police dna on it due to mishandling

unless.... it was suspected that the handling of another item by the police could have transferred thompson's dna from that item to the mdma

whatever, i think this 'contamination' needs to be further explained publicly to eliminate any accusations of 'tampering' with evidence especially as the mdma would appear to be the largest example of 'commercial'  level trafficking

i'm just suspicious in cases like this of "contamination" and asking for clarification

police are highly trained in forensic sampling procedures, especially in pre-organised raids

nothing personal re thompson re the mdma. just a desire for proper procedure. after that "let the chips fall where they may"

Just read Chip Le Grand's article in the Aussie. 

Wow, a frightening tale of a man whose life is in the hands of organized crime and how he has spiraled so far out of control.

And indeed, a very scary future for Bomber.

Im rather amused how even now the spin doctors are painting Bomber as almost a victim.

The man had choices. All those involved in either drugs or 'supplements' had choices.

The 'coming back to bite you on the bvm' was only a matter of time.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday.

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
