Was it GRP6 WP?

Can answer now

Yep it was MT

From Martin Blake's twitter:

Martin Blake ‏@martinj_blake
G Healy on AW says he was told EFC people asked questions about GRP6 supplement a year ago at conference. Suggests EFC itself faces ban.

Thanks WP.

I noticed that during the press conference that the three that were present weren't wearing any bomber gear.
They had the press conference at AFL headquarters which I've never seen before even when it's something bad.
It seems as though they were trying to distance the club from this issue completly.

Yep not even Club ties

Only time Clubs dont have sponsor stuff all over the place is when things are bad. Like C'wood with the Didak, Shaw lying episode a few years back, no TAC or Emirates signs up that day

Gotta say Jimmy Hird looked shattered  ;D

Quote
The fact the players were asked to sign wavers before taking these "supplements" tells me a few things also:
The club knew there was something wrong with what they were doing.
They've known this for a long time (not the past 24 hrs as they claim).
They have sacked 2 people (sport science guy & footy manager) recently.

That's alledgedly signed waivers - that's not confirmed so I am sure that's what you meant Mr Tigra = Allegedly  :yep

Actually come to think of it that would be allegedly on everything you've suggested Mr Tigra except for the sacking of the sports science guy, the footy mgr supposedly left as part of a "restructure" of the footy dept.

I'm sure it was just a typo  ;D

At the moment everything is speculation
Yes WP. I meant Allegedly. I'm not sure how anything I wrote was allegedly worse than I've already allegedly read. And some of it I've haven't allegedly seen any "allegedly's" in most of it.
I think your allegedly being very cautious.
.....Allegedly cautious that is...... :facepalm
The club that keeps giving.

The AFL cant kick them out of the comp. If they are guilty they will get something like

20 premiership points penalty for 2013 and 2014 which will put them out of the finals over the next 2 years
They will lose draft picks in 2013 and 2014
They will be fined a couple of million dollars.

Won't be up to the AFL Ramps.

If ASADA finds them guilty, they will punish then. The AFL is signatory to ASADA's anti doping regime and this falls under that regime. AFL can handout a penalty but if it doesn't appease ASADA then ASADA will hand out their own penalties

Sacked a legend coach whilst in the 8.
Appointed Knights over Dimma.
Extended Knights.
Sacked Knights, paid him out and retained most of the board.
Lost a fight with a bowls club.
Now this.

Absolutely disgraceful. This is beyond poor. Tried to cut corners, failed and now going to be absolutely smashed with penalties.

Correct

There are certain drugs that are ASADA/WADA approved eg pain killers

Then there are all the ones that are not, this GPR-6 or GPRH-6 is a growth hormone and clearly banned under ASADA/WADA.

So yep would think it is pretty clear cut

And pleading ignorance is usually not an accepted defence for ASADA or WADA; nor should it

What I was saying to Ramps is the AFL isn't in a position to hand out some wimpy penalty, if found guilty then the AFL under their own anti-doping rules which is the ASADA rules must surely hand out the mandatory penalty in this case. They fail to do so and ASADA will set in
