With the decline in the standard of footy over the last few years (our great 3peat the obvious exception 🤣) the coinciding demise of the scum has been a constant joy in an otherwise dreary time frame
Love how the club/players and MSM still keep peddling the good old "supplements" saga headline. Like they were unjustly got done for taking protein powders, tribulis and vitamins. It was proven that they implemented a very comprehensive injection regime of off label performance enhancing drugs namely Thyamosin B4 which is banned under ASADA/WADA, pretty clear cut. Love how Ben McDevitt ripped into the club and certain media personalities who tried in vain to pedal an alternative narrative to the real one

It was never a "supplements" scandal, it was a clear cut illegal doping regime were thousands of injections were made yet all records of such mysteriously disappeared when tipped off by the fat controller Demetriou. We all know how fat andy fared into the recent Crown Casino investigation...

Yep - was drug cheating.

You don't accidentally take thousands of injections and then lose the records of what was in them.

Essendon fans copped the boiling frog PR approach that had them believe it was all okay.

Sit back a bit - lots of injections, no records.

What more do you need to know?

I'm disappointed that we didn't consult properly with the players prior, and that is our fault. But we will do this over the next few days.
Ah well, who hasn't tried to pull a swifty and hide something in a late Friday email? 🤣

Three key takeaways for me on this one:
  1. That they even tried it on at all, given the AFLPA negotiations and contract rules
  2. That they tried to pull it off "Oh, by the way..." casual stylee.
  3. That they tried to hide it by sending it late on a Friday - the traditional slot for sending sh*te you have to send, but really want to just quietly go away.
At least they didn't play the "sent by mistake" card. So good on them for that.

"We're not paying you all the money you're contractually entitled to" was never going to slip past an entire playing list. They're incredibly stupid if they thought for a moment that it might.

Dons gonna have to re write contracts. Cap pressure.
Sounds like bullshit. Daniher, saad and Fantasia out in one off season and they can meet the cap? How much are they paying Caldwell and Wright?

my guess is they are trying to free up space for Merrett or bidding on free agents.

That would be best case scenario for them:

Lose Merrett & free up $750k.
Get Pick 2-5 in compensation to go with their 1st (Pick 1-4).
Have millions to draw in other Free Agents.
Or it's robbing Peter to pay Paul.
Free up some dollarydoos to match a Merritt bid for a better deal? Makes sense if you're trading commodities but people have feelings and it might just PO a few of their players though. Either way I like watching the scums carcass twitch
