    The Taylor Times are reporting the AFL are set to strip the West Coast Eagles of their first and second round draft picks for the 2007 draft in punishment for this period.

    Heard they were going to be found not guilty of taking drugs but will be fined 500k.

    So the report is critical of the Eagles for covering this stuff up - the report that was compiled in 2008 and released in 2017. This should have been made pulic at the time and the court of public opinion allowed to make an assessment based on all the facts.

    The tribe has spoken - Worsfold, extinguish your torch and leave the camp immediately. Nisbett, ON YOUR BIKE SON!

    It still cracks me up that the Dons appointed Johny. When the club needed someone who has the players welfare at heart, they pick a person who either had no idea or didn't care a toss about his team.

    Some good melts on the collingwood board of the degoey fiasco

    To be fair to Buckley, he did preface it during his press conference with "you're not going to believe it"

    A feature of a night out with an AFL player is that you get to see just how many heroic blokes feel entitled to giving a stranger a serve about their team or work ethic and sometimes don't take a polite "go away" very well, trying to pick a fight.

    Surely they should strip the premiership given the club knew and actively covered it up. And the drugs are classified as performance enhancing.

    Mine also... however I also think it is what is right. Drugs taken were/are considered performance enhancing. The premiership should be stripped. Jobe had the Brownlow taken based on lack of evidence and poor documentation. Along with the perception that PEDS were taken. In this instance we know these things happened. Take it off them.

    Reminds me of when a bloke at work reckoned he crashed his van into pole swerving to miss a 'dog' on the road.

    [QUOTE="Nisbett, ON YOUR BIKE SON![/QUOTE]

    How this bloke has managed to keep his job for so long is astounding.

    He made sure to hire ex-West sports editor as their media man which ensured positive news flow and selected articles making the print.

    Time heals all wounds though. At the height of the drug saga they all took the line of not knowing about it. Then 6 months ago they admitted they did (Worsfold and Nisbett). I am sure they will be able to swat this away by a simple shrug of the shoulders now. Too much time has passed for people to care.
