"Disgraced sports scientist Stephen Dank has been charged by Northern Territory Police with offences relating to his time working at an anti-ageing business in Darwin.
Mr Dank, 56, is facing fraud offences and charges of recklessly endangering serious harm and causing serious harm, NT police said in a statement."

The Herald Sun article says he "has been charged with causing serious harm, recklessly endangering serious harm and fraud."

Serious charges. The story behind the story will be fascinating.

Reckon he would've disposed of them not long after the drive by shooting of his home,  if he hadn't already.

You could well be right, but i believe both Essendrug and Dank still have all the information well hidden. Neither is prepared to budge unless the other does.

It’s just sad. He must have gone off the rails after his fine work at Geelong.

What a disgusting person. He has absolutely no regard for human life. Who knows what he’s once again been injecting people with, let’s hope he gets locked up this time before he kills someone.

He's just misunderstood. He's only trying to cure cancer after all.

Thompson certainly did....

Jeelong’s rise in 2007 was so swift. I still remember that game against Richmond, a mate rang me “Are you watching this..?”

it was extraodinary, we will never know if it was magic juice, but nothing would suprise me with Thompson and Dank in tandem

Bomberland could be feeling just a bit uneasy in case he is offered some sort of plea bargain for spilling the beans (or whatever he was using), or even investigator accidentally finding some records that they all thought were well hidden.

Would not trust the cockroach not to take down his erstwhile mates with the sinking ship (before correcting me on my use of metaphors,  I do recognize that the conventional word in this context is rats not cockroaches - but rats can be useful in laboratories when young AFL players cannot be found, whereas cockroaches really do not have any saving graces).

My MFCSS twitches whenever his name resurfaces. The MFC seems to have escaped serious scrutiny - I'd rather it buried forever than see investigators digging through fresh documents in the hope of a Bombers' take-down.

I wouldn't worry. From memory, it was only Trengove and Mitch Clark who might have had some questionable stuff, before the club woke up and gave him the bum's rush. Plus, for any really important stuff (ie criminal), there are people out there ready and willing to put the frighteners on, as they have done in the past.

There is much more return on capital for the footy media to put the spotlight on late-noughties Geelong than on us. And that won't happen either.

The Weapon was also present at the Cattery at the start of the 2007 season SW.

Any sightings of Charters in the NT lately?

Lindsay Tanner doesn't want to open up the can of worms:

https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/tanner-rubbishes-drugs-report-shoots-down-senate-inquiry-call-20191205-p53hdz.html

Loved this quote from him:

"Be a bit careful of what you read on the front of the Herald Sun," Tanner said.

Without starting the whole conversation again, people must remember that the investigation was started by the Australian Crime Commission ( now Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission), ....not ASADA!....there is a whole lot more to this than Essendon want exposed.

Lets not forget that our own coach was there for the duration of the program. 

Last thing we need is to be connected with Dank/Essendon doping in any shape or form.

Yes to 'the last thing we need', but overall, no.  It's best if the truth comes out even at the expense of our current coach (who if you believe some posters won't even be with us in 6 months 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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. That should never have happ
