Unbelievable

Essendon - banned for drug misuse

What has that got to do with COVID protocols breach?

Should i ask why this thread has begun?

I presume we are talking about the fines handed out to Sydney and others for not complying with the AFL's protocols?

So, basically for the finals, any COVID safety protocols could be ignored if you're happy to take the financial hit?

What a complete joke

The falsifying of COVID test results should have resulted in suspensions to the parties involved.

Although looking at the three clubs topping the list, it's not really surprising how they got away with a smack on the behind.

 

You are surely not suggesting corruption at AFL House?

"The AFL says penalties were given for breaches including not undertaking a rapid antigen test (RAT) within specified time periods, and uploading an image taken of a previous RAT undertaken by that person or someone else"

no suggestion that failed tests were covered up, quarantine rules breaches or anything that results in players playing that should not have played. Why would anyone be suggesting suspensions in these circumstances?

The world is now living with Covid. Let's just move on shall we.

Cmon man! Hardly on the same level and your statement about Rioli being drug free is ridiculous.

umm, if the RAT images uploaded were essentially fake (ie. previous images from old tests), how can you be so sure that failed tests weren't covered up?

can't be sure of anything. If a club decides to cover something up then requires a lot of digging to uncover - see Essendon drugs scandal

however they take the covid tests every day. not difficult to send in the previous days in error. Plus covid shows up on rats tests for a number of days so would require a major cover-up  as i've said. And needlessly exposes the rest of the list to covid.

btw the accuracy of rats tests is pretty sketchy. I've heard of plenty of people you passed the rats but failed the PCR. but thats another story

100% disagree with this comment from an Australian perspective.

Until the state governments remove the 1 week isolation period upon testing positive with COVID, Australia is most certainly not living with COVID.

Assuming you do the right thing by the general population and isolate, you could miss out on your own wedding, birthday or attending an MFC premiership live even if you're not particularly sick.

We have nowhere near moved on from COVID.

Sending in photos of old tests would be more to do with not wanting to shove a thing up your nose twice a week when you are feeling 100% healthy with no symptoms. You could call it Laziness. I personally know of people at the 2 different AFL at clubs not named who have done it. My kids are still getting sent home with Rats and I'm not making them test unless they feel ill or have kids in their class confirmed cases

No where near! staying in doors for a week if you test positive is hardly nowhere near. If you've covid you're probably sick and most likely not heading out anyways

We have vaccines, no more lock downs, we're free to move around, go to games, travel internationally etc. etc.

We've come along way from where we were

And how do the AFLK "Integrity Commission" 🤗 ascertain that the clubs involved did not gain advantage?

WCE must be spitting chips - their season was derailed by their compliance with the protocols.   We had a few players standing aside even though they may not have had covid, and this could have effected results.  Maybe we should have covered up and essentially made false declarations?

Yes RATS are pretty much hit and miss, but the fact is that the clubs signed on to the protocols and in some cases seem to have thumbed their noses fraudulently claiming compliance.

Do you want players suspended for not doing the test in time or sending in yesterday's rat test?

Yes. I wasn't allowed onto my work site without a valid RAT test. If that is what they were asked to do and they're not complying then why should they be any different?

They're professional athletes getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for crying out loud. How hard is it to follow the rules that are set out in front of them.

Actions and consequences. It's pretty simple really.

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
