    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.

    No, I did a quick check on the Eagles board and it seems this is just another attempt by the eastern states media to put pressure on the resurgent Eagles.

    Unlike the legitimate stories around a certain Dockers player's "calf injury"...

    The double standards are palpable. There are certain posters who will either dismiss it as a media conspiracy/beat up, or simply avoid talking about it altogether, but pounce at the first sign of any Freo controversy *cough* kane249 *cough*

    Total cowards.

    Can you imagine if Hagdorn (not that he didn't know) released the scoop on this - what kind of award would they have given him.

    Nisbett is the teflon man. That era should have spelt the end of his career in the AFL but instead he emerged unscathed and retained his reputation as an astute football administrator and corporate citizen.

    The matey relationship between the Eagles and the WA sports media no doubt helped him.

    Bringing up shit that happened over a decade ago with no real purpose is quite cowardly.
    Bringing up this shit days before season launch (and a day before a Grand Final to put us off our game by a Hawks supporting editor) is also quite cowardly!

    So now you are saying that eagles might win premiership if hawks supporting editor did not bring it up .

    Not acknowledging the wrongdoing,continuing to deny responsibility and refusing to accept the harm it did as well as the compromised premiership is cowardly.It would certainly require more courage and integrity than you or your club possess to admit your error.
    Releasing a report which paints your club in a terrible light doesn't have much to do with the meaning of cowardice.

    Did not mention that at all in my post. Just pointing out what being a coward really is.

    In before Kram81 brings up Jack Darling.

    And Freo fans are somehow responsible for that? Yeah, the media are opportunistic. What's new? Doesn't mean it doesn't deserve coverage, especially when most of those involved were never properly sanctioned.

    I'm not particularly invested in this anyway, just pointing out the hypocrisy so prevalent among your clan members.

    Trying to desperately ingratiate yourself among opposition fans and then going back to your own board and rubbishing them. You'd definitely know what cowardice is eh?

    No but I dont dare rubbish you on your own board, never really understood this point when it is brought up and used against me. Yes I am nice on this board, I do not want a ban. And if anything, I'm one of the nicer Eagles fans when it comes to freo on our board. Even my own call me a freagle.
