Yes. Because he knew they did it and were about to get busted so self reporting was a way of lessening the punishments they were going to cop

The AFL should never have given the medal to Cotchin and Mitchell in the first place precisely because of the possibility that one day new evidence might have cleared Watson. Note that I am not saying the story today has necssarily done that, but it's a problem entirely avoidable if the AFL had decided when it stripped Watson of the medal to leave the Brownlow unawarded for that year.

1. Essendon have no paperwork so can’t prove anything.

2. Doesn’t change the 40+ times players lied when being tested about having injections.

dirty lying cheats.

That reporter on the ABC Radio National is at it again trying to excuse Essendon. According to him this morning, the ASADA response to the HS article was just a blanket denial of wrongdoing and did not address the points raised.  A blatant lie.  Then he adds some irrelevant scuttlebutt to pour scorn on the whole issue.  The ABC should sack him.

I haven't been sucked in at all. Read my OP.

I am saying this is a way for the AFL to give Jobe back his Brownlow without losing face.

I am not going through the whole saga again.

I think you have mate. Buried deep in most of the articles is the actual facts around this and how it doesn't actually make any difference.

The ban still stands.

The Brownlow result sill stands.

Nothing has changed.

It is the record, not the little medallion that is important.

Anyone can find a lost medal in the street, it doesn't mean they were awarded it.

I'd suggest down the track the little medallion will still be worth a pretty penny if sold.

We will see.

Please don’t misunderstand what I am saying. I am not saying they are innocent I am saying this might lead to Jobe getting his win back.

Didn't they also 'misplace' a bunch of the records of who was jabbed with what?

Thanks for the safe space to ask this innocent question without Essendon cult nuffies jumping in.

There is no way in the world the AFL will open this up again. They want it glossed over, hidden away, kept out of sight and never mentioned, like an inbred royal, if for no other reason than to avoid re-scrutiny of their own role in it.

i'm scratching my head trying to understand what the new evidence is

they seem to be just resurrecting the same old arguments that have previously been rebuffed and extensively argued

nothing to see here except that the essendrug apologists will never cease (specially the essendon cheerleaders in the media )

Suspect you are right.

Remind me was the Brownlow considered part of the "medals" etc that the WADA rules required be stripped from a guilty player or was it just an internal recognition award.

Always has amazed me that Vlad and the AFL did not demand full paperwork and reciept Records from Essendrug, as they ultimately control the License to be in the Competition. 
Produce the Records or STFU Essendrug 

You got off lightly, take one look at Thompson to get an idea...

What makes you think Watson gave the medal back....last time I heard he "couldn't locate it".

 

Maybe Jab gave it to Dank 'for services rendered'?

Will the ceremony include a stripping of the Brownlow off Cotchin?

Ceremony will be at Dank's house. He's patched up the bullet holes in his front door.

Why would anyone sympathetic to Essendon ever bring that whole saga back up again. The only way Essendon will ever fully recover from the whole doping fiasco is to accept that it happened, they paid for it, and they'll never do it or think about it ever again.

Sometimes dead is better.

This is the bit that always puzzles me, out of the whole rotten saga.

It’s inconceivable electronic records were not kept. There are forensic IT teams that can retrieve deleted data.

I’ve never read a good explanation of how the records are missing and not retrievable.

Were they only recorded on Danks personal laptop with no backup and that has gone missing?

Data just doesn’t go missing if there is a will to find it.

How much did they want the data and to what end?

My gut feeling is the outcome was considered fair to all parties, best move on rather than have real evidence of what happened with unknown future ramifications. The irony is that Essendon cannot claim deniability if some future heath horror arises as they have "lost" the evidence that they may depend on. 

I would bet my last dollar that accurate records of the entire drug program are safely stored away most likely by (rhymes with tank) as a leverage tool. If he should pass away I imagine a few copies may emerge.

Most likely. Any copies are shredded & in land fill, and any other laptops are at the bottom of the Yarra.

The dark dim dank character almost certainly kept detailed records of his programme. His whole idea was to use EFC as a guinea pig to develop a "sports science" scheme he could sell shrink wrapped and in bulk to sporting clubs all over the world. There is no way he was not keeping track of dosages, timings, effects, etc.

Warwick Hadfield is a Hirdashian. Also the scientist with the new claims, Bob O'Dea is a Bombers member so has no independence at all. Just the same people looking for new ways to clear Saint James.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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. That should never have happ
