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
That's a straight up lie. Absolute bulls**t. NO other club was systemically doping their players like Essendon was.

That's why Essendon got caught, because it was so far outside what anyone else was doing.

Or Essendon were told what other clubs were doing and tried to get one up on them?
Exactly - a drug dealer saw a mark in Hird and Evans and they lapped it up.

"Carn, all the cool kids are smoking joints"

"Don't worry, you can't get addicted if you're only smoking it"

"Mate, everyone's doing coke, its the thing"

Hard to know when every other club didn’t get a prorper invistigation like Essendon did
No, bulls**t, bulls**t, bulls**t, bulls**t.

The day after the shocked to be sitting here presser North presented the AFL with a fully accountable set of records about what had been given to our players, when, where, by who etc.

You're saying that we can pretty much assume everyone living in the northern suburbs is a massive drug dealer, because Carl Williams came from there, and we wouldn't know unless everyone was investigated to the same detail as Williams.

No but what Asada should have done is drug tested every clubs list and had thier administration audited properly and not just asking for records.

Anyway at the end of the day weather essendon cheated or not I don't care about it's how the whole process was handled. I think Asada handled this really poorly if they wanted to be respected as an anti doping agency they would have investigated the entire comp and not just go hammer and tongs on one club

Asada were like 3 people with dubious experience in such matters when this broke. They would've been struggling to investigate a game of pass the parcel at a 5 year old's birthday party much less a national sporting organisation.

There's a strong element of truth to this. Which is why ASADA was beefed up in terms of resources and a genuine investigator in McDevitt grought in to deal with the Essendon case.

They do investigate the entire comp mate. That's how the Collingwood blokes have been pinged. Its why various clubs occasionally get pinged for not having updates player addresses or locations etc etc.

Frothing at the mouth isn’t a good look.

Lol, if North actually did this, they were the only one of 17 clubs to do so - who were even able to do so.
