    Sky is reporting that Essendon Players have had these issued today. No detail on how many were issued.

    But if these bureaucrats fck with the SOO, they will face the wrath of Blues Fans who have eight years of frustration brewing beneath our docile veneer :dodgy:

    You can see it can't you? 18mths of nothing, and then ruin Origin....sounds like ASADA to me.

    Hopefully not to take the shine off Origin, but I reckon this stuff is the main reason Bunji M didn't go to the Sharks.

    I know a lot of that 17 aren't even at the Shire club now. It's still going to be potentially long-term grief for the Gummies.

    It will be months perhaps even longer until it got to a stage where a player might actually be suspended.

    Essendon have just lodged a Federal Court challenge to the vaidity of the ASADA joint investigation.

    Lawyers at 10 paces :cool:

    I think that ASADA are just wearing down the public slowly so that by the time suspensions are enforced our apathy will be most high and everyone will be moved on.

    Cronulla players to receive their show-cause notices this Thursday or Friday would be ideal.

    Was thinking the same thing.

    Although with the number of injuries they have all the players receiving notices are watching the game anyway.

    Quite a few aren't even there anymore.

    Judging by the talk around Essendon in the AFL, all of this has the potential to roll on for years.

    Unless players are offered dispensation and a nominal penalty (eg. 6 months) the process even now is only in the preliminary stage.

    What a farking mess!

    What you get when self-anointed ''sports scientists'' are given too much credence by otherwise intelligent and honorable men.

    Unless, of course, we're the "other" club.

    Isn't Wade Graham a 2011 Shark ?
    Maybe the Knights are the other Club:cool:

    Lets get on with it and clear the air for the unaffected 900 or so Players!

    What year did Wade go to the Gummies?

    ( He was at Penrith...as was Sandor Earl ).

    I think this is going to affect everyone for a long while yet!

    Not great timing for Wade to join em was it?

    But as we've said, very few guys are still there.

    A few clubs like the Titans, Knights and Warriors have a couple of those guys possibly implicated now.

    So its all enough to involve and distract more clubs than just the Sharks.

    Thanks for that list too, HM.

    There was a big rumour last Feb that all Australia's top sporting codes were rife with corruption, cheating and drugs.
