I think Hog might have died if Sky came out of the 2012 Tour saying "We must be clean, Bernie Eisel passed a urine test!"

Doping in AFL?

Something is breaking at the moment about the Essendon Football Club, and players signing waivers for fitness programs, taking things that puts them "on the edge"

You'd be surprised how many people would take it as gospel.

Essendon been caught taking 'enhanced' supplements it seems, or at least someone has suggested it appears. So they are now claiming they knew nothing and are opening themselves up to be looked. Sounds very much like they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar and are desperately hoping pretending to be ignorant will be an effective defense.
Has there been anybody caught since Justin Charles was caught in 1997. Ben Cousins' case was more a drug problem than a doping problem I think. Anyway I do not follow AFL these days so a bit out of touch.

I don't follow it either, but knowing the Aussie sporting landscape, ignorance would be just a fine defence for an AFL team. The media will focus on the Soccer issue until the doping quietly gets swept under the rug

Just heard on a sports radio show here in Adelaide that it is rumored that the supplement Essendon were taking was a synthetic form of testosterone that is not banned yet by WADA but will be in May.
Unfortunately I missed the name of the product and it is only a rumor.

And now even AC Milan may be implicated in Operacion Puerto.

At the bottom you can read

Prevision 2005 (2005 estimate)

RSoc IG x 40.5
Milan IG x 40

That year AC Milan reached the CH L final miraculously losing to Liverpool.

It could also be Milan Baros, a Liverpool player by then with some special needs.



Spanish teams only, sniper?
