We didn't finish bottom 8 this year. We finished 9th. Bottom 8 would be 11th or worse. And regardless of where we finish our schedule strength remains the toughest. If we had beaten the Saints, Norf, Melbourne and Doggies (as we likely should have) then we would have finished 4th or 5th position. But it wouldn't have made our schedule any easier.Last year we finished top 8
This year bottom 8
Pretty sad (and idiotic by Willie) if true - Willie is a fantastic player and this will dent his reputation and heavily impact his career. Depending on the substance he could be facing a two year ban. That being said at least we can role out the old West Coast memes.
I think a few of them jumped the gun with the headlines, some have deleted them now.I dont understand why all the headlines are "Willie Rioli has tested positive for a banned substance" when in fact they should be "Willie Rioli has been accused of substituting a urine sample in a drug test"
yeah, both bad offences/accusations no doubt. Just stupid how they all had the wrong headline with the right information that didn't even support their own headlines. Anyway, bad look regardless.I think a few of them jumped the gun with the headlines, some have deleted them now.
IMO swapping urine and testing positive are just as bad as each other.
