Can this "our best is good enough" s**t stop coming out from our players and coaches... It's starting to get a Scientology vibe inside the club. Let the results do the talking FFS.
Wow, Scientology.
We've become the Cruise team
Phrases like best is good enough mean nothing and I'm sure they know that
Is annoying they keep peddling the same rot though

Montagna pretty cluey I think. We start slow because our mindset is to be slow and cautious as per our game plan. We don’t have an aggressive approach, so we don’t start well in finals. It’s a mindset!
Must change this! Bring the intent and look to move it more quickly. Slow ball movement just plays into eagles hands!
Over to you C. Scott 3-10 man!

Terry Wallace outraged the sample was taken in Round 23 and they find out as they are literally boarding the plane.
Tough titties, the thorough testing investigation and consulting legal eagles, not EC eagles takes time.
Do you reckon they knew it was on or not? Surely they spoke to Willie when he was sprung.

Oops, no pun intended. haha

I thought it was just a urine test. Montagna was just on AFL Tonight to explain the process of the urine test, but no mention of a blood test.

I'm baffled that if the pants are down around the ankles + the top lifted to the chest, + there is someone watching you, how do you swap a test?
UDS are not typically that invasive. It's not conducted under a spotlight in the raw. There are perameters on each specific test that send off red flags, for example, temperature and creatine levels that would indicate either the test has been diluted, or wasn't taken from the body at that time.

I work in AoD and I've seen plenty of bizzare things occur in UDS'. I've known people who've purchased clean urine (you read that correctly) and used it in tests and it's come back positive. I've also known people to be panicked at the path lab because they've used recently, but test neg.
Keep in mind, I'm talking about illicit here, not PED's (I know they're not mutually exclusive), so testing perameters may be different, but the process is typically the same.

Chris Scott is Ron Hubbard - unfortunately we will never know if what the players are saying in public are what they are actually thinking regarding our game plan/coaching strategy.
