On the upcoming Open Mike, Fitzpatrick makes the claim that what the Essendon players took was almost certainly performance enhancing

In an explosive interview to be aired on Fox Footy’s Open Mike, Fitzpatrick reveals he was told by a rival player that the Bombers had presented that season as though “they had done five pre-seasons in one”.

“And I think that kind of summed it up,” Fitzpatrick said.

On the status of the injections administered by Essendon, he said: “They either didn’t know what was in it, or if they did know, they weren’t going to say. There was circumstantial evidence as to what it was.

“My point of view was that it was almost certainly performance enhancing, but even if it wasn’t ... the penalty in the end that the AFL put on Essendon was to do with duty of care and the general behaviour towards the players.

its actually alarming that people watched that interview and took this away from it? This actually put us in a better light.

He basically said they had no idea or proof of what Essendon did but they assumed they took something that was banned..... He even mentioned he talked to CURRENT players and took their opinion on it.

The guy is nothing but a crook.
