I blame Mossad.
Why is only the NRL implicated? Darkest day in Australian sport is only after NRL?
I'm not trivialising the magnitude for the NRL but if you are going to grandstand like they did, why is it that the only sport that looks tainted is the NRL?
Whose blaming the government?
I asked a fairly valid question! Darkest day in Australian sport? Only NRL implicated?
Did you somehow miss all the stuff re Essendon? Obviously, the Sydney media are going to focus more on the NRL and, frankly, the benefits of these types of substances are going to be greater in games where physical power is king.
Lets say this investigation 'conveniently' drags on till September/October. Players then come out and say 'yep, i made a mistake and will take the 6 month ban.' They then just miss the offseason and the first 3 or 4 rounds of 2014. Back playing before you know it
ASADA win, the drug cheats win and no one really gets punished too harshly
But Ings dashed any hope players may have of serving a ban in the off-season, saying the AFL tribunal would be compelled to follow World Anti-Doping Agency guidelines.
"The suspension has to be a period from playing footy, not a period of having a holiday," he said.
Maybe if he did (take performance enhancing drugs) he would've been a better coach? :sarcasm:
