    ASADA issues show-cause notices to Essendon players

    It's starting

    ESSENDON players have reportedly been issued with show-cause notices by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority.

    News Corp is reporting ASADA served the notices on players on Thursday following a 16-month probe into the club's 2012 supplements program.

    Any players or officials found guilty of doping offences face suspension from all sport.

    But the process of deciding whether anyone is guilty could take years, with legal action a certainty.

    Show-cause notices require players to explain why they should not be handed infraction notices for breaching the WADA drug code.

    If ASADA doesnt accept the explanation they then compile a report on each player that may have breached the code. This report is then given to an independent group of experts who assess the evidence and decide whether an infraction notice should be issued by ASADA and the AFL.

    If an infraction notice is issued, the player would be suspended immediately until the issue is resolved.

    Whilst we cling to the hope that he won't be, I think realism is going to win out over optimism in this particular case.
    I love this club with all my heart, Im truly proud to be a part of it and I can guarantee you, going forward, Ill absolutely get every ounce of myself to go further into the journey.

    There were 40 players on the list. 34 have been hit so the rumours go.

    Stew is odds on to have a show cause, moreso than not.

    34 players and all of them in relation to Thymosin Beta 4. Worst possible result for the Scum - all the hot air over AOD simply a diversionary tactic - TB4 was the end game for ASADA.

    You're trying to apply rationality and logic to the filth.

    Good. I hope Essendon are decimated as a result of the next stage of proceedings.

    Good sentiment but it won't serve us or the league if that happens

    I reckon it is a bitter pill that the game needs to swallow. If the 34 players (Crameri included) have been found to have taken a banned substance, the future health of the game demands that the players are suspended for the 2 year maximum and that whatever fats befalls Essendon, so be it.

    On the surface, the Essendon doping regime is every bit as cynical and outside the rules as the East German athletes of the 70's or the cycling teams from the late 90's - if it means they close their doors, it is a price the game simply needs to pay.

    Agree. If it hurts us as well, so be it. Our league is already compromised in many ways, which also needs addressing, but I'm not prepared to cop doping at all. There has to be consequences. Harsh enough that it ensures no Club tries it on ever again.

    It'd be a great piece of football history to have Essendon fold as a result of being outed as blatant cheats (again). The game would survive, one way or another.
