    AFL has had it's head in the sand, suburban football and it's players, for years have been involved in playing whilst taking hard drugs including supplying/selling. Supplements now the rage, lot of bulked up teens playing suburban footy today. As for betting on the footy/sport, WE WERE WARNED WHAT WOULD/COULD HAPPEN if introduced. Am I surprised by the recent revelations? No not at all.

    How naive are we as a country if we believe that we are sqeaky clean. There has been players in the recent years who have been associated with the under world element so where there is smoke there is fire. Go through the lot of them and source the supplier(s) and throw the book at them. Yes the athletes are fitter than years ago but all on their own? Hope this is the shake up that is needed and eradicates the gutter tribe pushers for ever.
