THE Essendon drugs saga will return to court just days before this month’s season opener, with human rights lawyer Julian Burnside, QC, leading a case brought against AFL chief Gillon McLachlan and former commission chairman Mike Fitzpatrick.

Former Essendon footballer Matthew Lloyd says he’s worried about his former teammate Mark Thompson, following allegations made in court about the former Bombers coach.

Victorian police allege ice pipes and ecstacy tablets were allegedly found inside Thompson’s bedroom during a police raid on his home earlier this year.

Police allege Thompson’s DNA was found on packaging containing 33g of ice, 4.2g of amphetamines and an LSD tablet inside his locked bedroom.

In a funny way I feel sorry for the guy. His life is over. His wife left, he's going to go to jail. He's a fool and deserving of punishment but we all do foolish things.

Look at Ben Cousins, the guy has a serious problem. Bomber probably does too, though we don't know the whole story. Sad for the guy even though he never fully admitted his part and was never truly repentant.

100% wont be going to jail on those charges.

Edit. Scratch that, the ecstasy found falls under a "large commercial amount". Max sentence is life and a 500k fine. Average sentance is around 12 years.

someone on big footy says charges like that are to turn him into a witness. I'm not up to date with the workings of the criminal underworld but things look grim to me.

Retired AFL commission chairman Mike Fitzpatrick believes Essendon's supplements were "almost certainly performance enhancing".

Lol at Essendon sacking Neeld. Lol at all the fans ringing in to SEN "finally that bums gone, now we can actually start playing some footy!"

They may well be the most deluded bunch Ive ever known.

 :lol

Seems as though only Neeld, Worsfold and some other flog were the only coaches allowed to speak to the players, and all other ideas had to be funneled through those three  :lol

Neeld, a great Richmond man, destroyed the Demons and now the Bumbers  :lol
