Sorry , wasn't it Jobe, in his third year as captain, who allowed his players to cross over the road to be jabbed by substances unknown but obviously not Thymosin beta 4?

Wasn't it Jobe who didn't baulk at players taking the unknown Mexican drug at the discredited shonk Malcolm Hooper "Hyperbaric Chamber" allegedly?

Any captain that was worth his salt would have complained and stood up for the players at the start of this however if you feel that Captain Snooze is a dead set legend then fair play to you. He certainly isn't in the mould of Captain Lawrence Oates, Weary Dunlop or Albert Jacka.
Shonky Malcolm had his day in court
An “alternative” health practice and its clinical director have been fined a combined total of nearly $727,000 following the death of a customer in 2016.

Former chiropractor Malcolm Hooper, 61, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy provider Oxymed Pty Ltd were sentenced in the Melbourne County Court on Monday.

They were each convicted of three work safety-related charges, all of failing to ensure a workplace is safe and without risks to health. Hooper was fined $176, 750, while the company was fined $550,000.

Oxymed was trading as HyperMed at its South Yarra premises in April 2016 when a long-term client with multiple sclerosis, MS-induced epilepsy and a history of life-threatening seizures came in for treatment.

In an eight-part documentary series titled ‘The Bombers: Stories of a great club’, to be aired on Fox Footy and Kayo from October 19, former Bombers president David Evans speaks for the first time about the drugs scandal and admits mistakes were made in dealing with the saga.


Watson in 2013 opened up on the supplements program, saying “having that many injections was something I had not experienced in AFL football before”.



Watson’s father, club great Tim Watson, said the “injustice” of the decision to strip his son of the Brownlow because of a doping ban was “like the final crushing thing about that whole episode”.

Need to start a sweep on how many times the word "brave" is said.
