Yes
I haven't read all the post's in here but a workmate who apparently has some info that Rioli isn't very happy with the club at the moment, any truth to that ?
Some info ? I am no miss marple but I would ask him to give you the info especially being a mate or its just spreading gossip .

I wouldve thought he would be required to be at training

There’s two priorities with Rioli

1) His mental health as he spends time in football limbo awaiting his fate
2) Maintaining physical condition so that he’s in good shape when he can return

Given that a return to football probably won’t be until 2021 at the earliest (1) takes precedence over (2). Provided the club is monitoring his fitness to ensure he doesn’t balloon out, he’s best served taking timeout at home away from the media glare

Gill is a flog but his hands are tied? ASADA are the ones that drag this out.

That's a long time to wait in the context of a sporting career. Especially when there is always the possibility of being found not guilty and being able to compete again (obviously seriously unlikely in Willie's case)
It will probably be judged as time served so Willie does a preseason and is ready for 2021 ..

Yep, it's ASADA, done by international standards and processes. The fact that it is WCE or Willie Rioli is probably almost meaningless to them, given the big picture they oversee, their jurisdiction...

Gil has no more influence over this process than you do, so why don't you sort it out,?

I find it ridiculous that a time frame cannot be provided for when the matter will be looked at. How the fu** does that work. Simpson said in his presser that he has no idea basically what's going on. He understands there are processes. WTF

A process usually indicates steps and time frames for a step. So what the fu** is the step we are at and what's the next step. Piss poor transparency for all involved
