Its understandable from a corruption point of view but it fails the reality test that until the AFL itself divests itself of Betting Companies then they are complicit in that corruption

Vicious circle

The real question we have to adresss here folks is the true meaning of the word integrity and how we mere minion supporters can possibly maintain a slither of faith in a government group who are responsible for the disgraceful slander of a 150 year old iconic Australian sporting football club.

I hope you join me in support of my complete and utter condemnation of it all.

Power to the people.

Must admit this annoys the hell out of me not one Essendon player tested postive and yet those Collingwood players who did test postive didn't cop the same treatment like the Essendon players did.

The whole drug saga was a big joke.
Collingwood wasn't the team with a systemic team-wide doping program.

Drug doping was a wide league problem at the time opposistion clubs should be kissing Essendons boots for taking one for the comp.
So you quote positive drug tests (hint: you don't need a positive drug test to be found guilty of taking drugs) as a way of somehow absolving yourself, then you practically say that you were doped up to your eyeballs and teams should be thanking you for taking a bullet for them? :$

Every club was on similar type of program to what Essendon were doing only difference is the rest of the clubs stopped what they were doing once ASADA/Police caught wind with what was going so don’t prentend like the rest of the comp was clean

Why would all the other clubs stop what they were doing if it was all above board?

Or are you saying that Essendon were cheating and all the other clubs were also cheating?
