Yep, you’d think they’d be far more stringent.I would expect ASADA to be more stringent than you, not less.
I cannot fathom an AFL player doing a drug test being able to take half a cup of water out of the toilet bowl or turn a tap on etc. and if you have your shirt pulled up to your nips and pants around your ankles good luck concealing a Camelbak bladder or hip flask.
Well if the B sample was normal, that is to say not interfered with, and the A sample shows signs of interference, then you’d charge him with interfering like we’re seeing now right? Maybe that’s what this is?Surely B sample must be impacted too as you dont just suspend a player withoutit being tested to confirm?
if the B sample isnt tainted, and its clean, that would surely work in our favour massively right. ie. willy just spit at the time of pissing, not really thinking, and some gatorade residue just managed to land in the cup.
I have to say Vosso was impressive in his presser. Sounded a straight talker and knew when to draw the line. Better than most politicians todayif the B sample isnt tainted, and its clean, that would surely work in our favour massively right. ie. willy just spit at the time of pi**ing, not really thinking, and some gatorade residue just managed to land in the cup.
clutching at straaws here
on the flip side if he did it to both samples, well then that's gonna be a hard one to argue.
I get that in the aspect of tampering they are exclusive, but i don't see how the B sample doesn't come into play. I mean if his B sample is clean, then it shows he's clean and takes away the motive of the A sample (ie. trying to hide something) and then surely we have a stronger argument for at least a reduced punishment (ie. 6 months rather 2 years).The B sample won't play into it as the inference is not one of a "positive drug test". The inference is the tampering of a sample, doesn't matter if it's A or B. They are separate issues
Almost certainty spat into the cup, no doubt accidentally but it's enough to for them to report it. You only two goes at giving a test, both have to be free of anything. Spit included
