    It staggers me to hear umpires being called cheats at local and junior footy level.

    It still is and it still astounds me the number of 'refuses' I get.

    This is one of those times where you've got to sit back and think "How the *!*!*!*! did he think he'd get away with it?"

    Do ASADA conduct the 'Out-of-Competition' tests on the AFL's behalf or are they done separately to ASADA's testing?
