    Play Nice Sam Murray Under ASADA Investigation

    Thread is about to cop a clean up. One player testing positive is not an excuse to attack an entire team or fan base. Stick to the topic and think before you post please

    Are recreational drugs performance enhancing?

    About 3 beers in invincible in fighting games for a good 30 minutes, my mates have to wait that period out before they don't have to swap the second controller between themselves but I wouldn't want to drive a car at that point

    Actually the main reason the testing is done was because of funding pressure so like most things it comes down to $$ Now that the AFL are saddled with these tests they are all about brand management to keep the $$ coming in

    Not really if they know they could be tested and it could cost them that it's their choice. If rules are put in place up front and everyone agrees then it's fair game. If the AFL decided to fine collingwood for bringing the game into disrepute because someone leaked private test results that...

    If the AFL takes that hard line on recreational drug use after trying to sweep systematic doping under the rug because they think that will be more damaging to the brand what does that say about this country.... It's OK to cheat as long as you only get pissed afterwards?

    I see no reason for marijuana to be demonized worse than alcohol or tobacco but I'm not disgusted. I don't lump all drugs into the same category either. I think there are arguments for some but not all. I don't think the current attitude to drugs is doing anything to fix the problems and the...

    It's irrelevant what they tested positive for. A bunch of players have tested positive, we don't know how many, which clubs, which players, what for or whether it's a first offence. I don't care who did what, it has zero impact on the season.

    It's cute that you ask that question, I think the view would change based on the particular drug, I wouldn't be surprised if marijuana was above 50% approval, that's probably the only one though.

    Yes I do, your argument seems to be drugs are against the law because we voted for the government though. The only other thing you tend to say is go run for office because apparently discussing issues on a forum shouldn't be done.

    You do realise we don't vote for laws at election time right?

    More your lack of understanding of how voting works, we get minority governments, we get seats in the Senate decided by party preferences not primary votes, though that last one may finally change next election. I was disagreeing with your comment that the government is always voted for by the...

    I like how you have this theory that the government is a) voted in by a majority all the time and b) reflects the values of the average citizen and makes laws based on that For some reason gay marriage is illegal, mainly because the church thinks they own the word marriage, we get to vote on it...

    Considering the Pies article includes comments from Gordon I wouldn't be surprised if the dogs had tested poorly but Pies sells more papers than dogs so who knows. At the end of the day every club had players test positive so all of those you mentioned and both of our clubs had players on the...

    Can't speak for Brisbane but we are talking about pot, speed, pills etc some are more obvious if you know what to look for, pretty common down here depending on where you go out. It does depend what circles you move in, I know people that have never tried anything and people that are pushing 40...

    Oh no somebody did something naughty during the couple of weeks in the entire year they don't have to rock up to training. Picking on the Pies is clickbait bs, maybe robbo heard the bombers don't deserve Anzac day line and thought he needed to level the playing field. The amount of bullshit...
