That's done by mentally ill people normally, are you suggesting the player and Dank are mentally ill?
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

No, but again it illustrates some things aren't always black and white. One day you might display an ability to think just an iota outside the square. :wink:

But thinking outside the square could also include being guilty without a positive test.

I agree, from now on no is allowed to plead guilty as they might not be sure enough to know what they do.

Again, a black/white scenario. Point proven.

The only point proven is that you are in the middle of a forest asking where the trees are.

No, I'd probably get no internet reception if I were in a forest.

Do I call you Mr Black or Mr White from now on?

Only 'attempted use'.

Should be free to play then, I guess.

Attempted use? So he tried to inject but failed? He didn't pierce the skin, or what? Perhaps we need the full story but end of day, it has little significance to what the Bomber's players were hung out to dry on.

The significance is that Anti Doping isn't only about catching those that dope. It's about stopping people from even attempting to dope.

Dank, the Essendon employee, has been banned for life by the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal for breaches that occurred during his employment at Essendon. But fans want to believe that while he was being dodgy on the side by trafficking illegal substances, he was totally above board when working with the players.

Please.

Illegal, as in the WADA Anti Doping list.

They are still legal to use on horses.

So in a true legal sense, he may have been in possession of something that's ok legally to have in your possession, just as long as it isn't injected to a human athlete for purposes of anti-doping code. Did Dank have any ties to the racing industry?

Nazi regime and WADA/ASADA do have things in common, so not sure why you're getting knickers in a twist. The Nazi's didn't give a cabernet if any Jew was not proven guilty of anything either.
