The crux of the matter:

In its decision, the AAT considered five criteria provided in the FOI Guidelines issued by Information Commissioner.[5] The issue for the AAT primarily lay with two criteria; whether the information had the necessary quality of confidentiality and whether it must have been communicated and received on the basis of a mutual understanding of confidence.

The AAT concluded that it was clear that the dates had not entered into the public domain. They are not a matter of public knowledge. There are a relatively small number of people who have had access to this information, but, as will be discussed below, that access is covered by a veil of strict confidentiality born from statutory, contractual and equitable sources.

Can you give me a pay wall busting summary please?
Former AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou says Jobe Watson deserved to retain the 2012 Brownlow Medal stripped from him for his role in the damaging Essendon drugs saga.
And the man who led the AFL’s response to the injections regime believes the Essendon 34 were “hard done by” to be suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport after being found not guilty by Australia’s anti-doping body.
He denied he ever tipped off Essendon chairman David Evans about an impending Australian Crime Commission report, saying he had no knowledge of what was about to be dubbed “the darkest day in Australian sport”.

If Demetriou said it was Saturday i would double check
He has a history of being totally untrustworthy
For him it was always the money first, second and third

That settles it then. No one’s word carries more weight than AD’s. The guy is the bastion of integrity.
