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

“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.
