    He was a couple of years older than me, so probably 78-81, something like that.
    And yeah, if it was your thing (it wasn't mine, all my money seemed to go on keeping my trail bike running) there certainly seemed plenty around back then.

    This is just more evidence piling up that the players should all have day jobs or be going to Uni.
    They need to be in the real world away from the club influence and other players as much as possible.

    Yeah, because someone with a day job or is a uni student would never do a line of coke...

    I think your average person is less likely to do dumb stuff than rugby league players. They spend too much time together, they don't get enough outside perspective, they become like a gang, the role models around the clubs are not good enough, the people that hang around with them are scummy bikie types and the like.
    I am not worried about a bit of cocaine use, but you put that on top of every other dumb thing RL/NRL players do and worse the reputation of the game because of it then something big needs to happen.
    They need to have busier lives away from the game and be working towards something. They spend too much time in NRL world.

    Remember when players said they deserved a cap of $10mill and we’re going to be partners in growing the game?

    I used to race on a YZ 80 F back when the XR75 was a thing. My brother was upper class he got a brand new YZ 80 H when they came out (first of the watercooled ones)

    "Having established that the ingestion of the cocaine was out-of-competition and not for performance enhancing purposes" (from the link in the post above).

    So he didn't have it the night before after all? Either way, he's been bashed over the head with a feather.

    Great news. Recreational drugs should be legal, stay out of people's lives

    Time to be more professional.

    Athletes in other major sports leagues outside of australia usually know when they're being tested lol
