If it's for an energy drink, then I hope he doesn't get something ridiculous like 2 or 4 years. Hell even if it's a line of coke. Punish him, but don't be excessive about it.

If he took a PED and intended to cheat, then come down on him hard then

My guess is it would be what you described. Some blow or just some wrong energy drink or whatever that prob did nothing for him but he'll still cop it because the inflexibility of their punishments to being anything rational.

Given that half our team are in surgery or preparing for this weeks VFL match I'd be happy to take their gate takings from last weeks home final.

If I had to guess, they probably wanted to keep this hush hush until after the finals and some journo found out, was going to expose them and so they got on the front foot about it?

It’s clearly absolutely moronic by Rioli but if this isn’t another great example of how the AFL needs to **** ASADA off I don’t know what is.

He probably had a bump of coke or a joint and got spooked when he saw the testers coming. Something that should really only cost him a 10-12 week ban and a great big fine is going to take multiple years to resolve and could kill his career.

AFL gotta get that government money though 🤑

All of the major American sports have told USADA to take a long walk off a short pier and made their own PED policy.

With the AFL consumed with becoming the next NFL, trust them to NOT adopt the one useful choice American sports have made
