    The irony is West Coast just beat Essendon and now face Geelong, both the Dank teams.

    Testing positive for pregnancy is what gave him away.

    Oh boy. How's the AFEL going to cover this one up? Big interstate team and a big family name!
    They've done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time!

    What exactly is a prohibited method and why did it take this long to come out?

    Willie Rioli's drug test shock: Eagle suspended indefinitely

    WEST Coast's Willie Rioli has been suspended indefinitely in relation to an ASADA test in late August.

    The AFL late Thursday stood down the premiership-winning forward from Friday night's semi-final against Geelong at the MCG.

    Rioli was advised of an adverse finding in the ASADA test - taken on August 20, two days after the Eagles' round 22 match against Richmond.

    ASADA has alleged Rioli used a prohibited method to provide a sample for the test.

    West Coast said in a statement: "The Eagles have been made aware that Willie Rioli is the subject of an ASADA and AFL investigation.

    "The club is extremely disappointed that one of our players has been provisionally suspended while a matter is being investigated and it will comply fully and openly with ASADA and the AFL through the process.

    "The club is fully committed to supporting Willie during what is a personally distressing time.

    "Our primary concern is Willie's health and welfare.

    "As this is an ongoing investigation the club, its staff and players can make no further comment until the investigation is completed.

    "The West Coast Eagles fully supports the AFL and ASADA in its ideal of our game being drug free."

    He’s been provisionally suspended for urine substitution and it’s still under investigation. AFL will somehow make this go away.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I think the opposite - that the AFL will take this somewhat easy kill and use it to make an example of Rioli to flex their muscle.

    This is the first whiff of PEDs since Essendon and already it feels like the AFL are falling over themselves to show how compliant they are.

    At least his post retirement book now has a catchy tile:

    I don't get why players think they need to take short cuts and cheat the system

    It just raises doubts now on so many other players
