It's not really a theory, fairly certain the AFL tipped them off - IIRC Hird stated this under oath in court.

The AFL did not however hang them out to dry they carefully managed the process so the AFL tribunal cleared everyone - only because WADA appealled did the whole charade come crashing down.
Correct. The AFL and Essendon had it all worked out until WADA became involved. That is abundantly clear.

so much cloke and dagger
If bomber knows what evans knows, and knows it can clear up a lot of the grey areas surrounding the whole situation, why doesnt bomber just release it.

or it all exists in his head.

short of informing the players of what was given to them, i don't see what the value is in any of this.

theory: AFL told essendon to banish evidence of use of supplements in order to avoid future lawsuits. then hung out essendon to dry.
Plan A: Pin it on Dank. But Dank had been injecting Hird in his office...
Plan B: Hird takes the fall. But Hirdy was having none of it.

AFL's plans in tatters. AFL fights Essendon who fight ASADA.

All these NDAs designed to protect reputations, but one wonders if there were none, could the outcomes be possibly worse?

It's hard to imagine they could so they may as well tell the public the whole story anyway.
