Wait, so we've been fine because our players refuse to tell the AFL weather were at every second of the day? Let them have their bloody off-season. Nanny state.
Yeah, nah. Need to be able to test at any time or you get another * situation.

Fair chance Whitfield had something in his system when he went off the grid. If it wasn’t recreational, you certainly want the player being tested so they can’t get an * type advantage for the season proper, by training harder in the off season ... while hiding from scrutiny.

Every athlete under the WADA code must advise of their whereabouts at all times.
Breach the rule too many times in a year and they can get banned.

3 is the count. I believe a few cricketers were banned for a few months for failing to update their details for a third time, Adrian Russell of the West Indies being one I believe without doing the research. If they want the big money, they have to dot every I, cross every T.

Not anywhere near as bad as that, and it's definitely not every single athlete under the WADA Code (you don't think every SANFL, VFL player has to do it surely?).

For the athletes that are forced to be part of the Whereabouts system, which is probably most if not all AFL players, they just have to nominate one hour in the day (between 6am and 11pm) that they'll be at a certain place. They can do this with an app. You have to separately lodge a form with your home address, training times and locations, etc, and you need to update this if you move home.

I'm no elite athlete, but my submission to ASADA would be simple.

Pick any hour between 6am and 11pm on whatever day you want and you can find me on Bigfooty....

This is why all elite sportsmen and women have Instagram accounts. It’s so the drug testing authorities can follow them. I know some people just think it’s vanity / narcissism but it’s really not.

I wonder if ASADA is too hard with the whereabouts thing. This agreement is in place for drug testing. Keep your eye on the main job ASADA. Don’t become the whereabouts police.

Interesting to know if they could just test the next day or the player(s) went missing for weeks?

It's in place to catch players who may be microdosing etc where a day would make a difference between passing and failing a test.
