Trial transcripts leaked. See for all the glorious detail how the AFL tribunal made this go away (temporarily).

515. Reference has been made to Mr Xu’s statement to the ASADA investigator about GL

Biochem. The Tribunal has accepted his statement that he supplied TB4 to Mr

Charter. However, the statement about the company is self-serving. Mr Xu is

responding to an investigator about the supply of substances by his company, which

are the subject of an investigation. In these circumstances, it can be expected that Mr

Xu would wish to portray his company in a favourable light. In the Tribunal’s view,


little weight can be attached to his statement about the company and his assertion that


what in fact was supplied was TB4.


516. Further, if there was a certificate of analysis of the TB4 purportedly supplied, it might

be expected that Mr Xu would refer to it in his discussion with the journalist and the

investigator. It is something of significance. He did not produce any documents to

ASADA and told the investigator he had provided all the documents that his company

still had on hand to the journalist. However, no reference is made to a certificate in


the newspaper article. Having regard to the purpose of the article, it can be inferred


from this that no certificate was supplied to the journalist by Mr Xu, which tends to


support a conclusion that there was no such certificate.
Company rep did a press interview, ergo can't be trusted, inference players not guilty. Self interest of a person in China being pursued by a couple of suits in Australia.

Fair dinkum.

Essendon players reportedly suffered painful side effects from injections given by sports scientist Stephen Dank.

In transcripts from the AFL anti-doping tribunal hearings, published in News Corp papers on Monday, players detailed hot flushes, numb backsides and intense pain during the supplements scheme.

One player said the injections were "like concrete going into your arse".

From trial transcript:
When interviewed by Mr Hargreaves, Mr Charter stated that he had purchased Thymosin Alpha (which is not a prohibited substance) from RD Peptides when on his Shanghai trip in November 2011. He produced at his second interview a purchase contract with the letterhead of RD Peptides listing a purchase of ten 1g vials of “Thymosin”. It is submitted by the ASADA CEO that there are a number of reasons why this evidence should not be accepted, which are set out. One of these is that there is evidence that suggests that the purchase contract was fabricated after the interview on 7 November 2014. Metadata for the document discloses that it was created using Adobe Photoshop on 24 November 2014. This suggests the document is not a photo of an actual document, but a version created in Photoshop.
AFL still can't find them guilty when the exculpatory evidence is faked.

What a game!

This is starting to go nuclear. This week the Herald Sun has rehashed a 2 year old story about Dank at Geelong sourcing calf's blood, and now today's story is dropping Melbourne in it.

The obvious conclusions here are Essendon - or somebody at Essendon - is worried about something this week, and Dank's run his measure and is now playing his grey-mail card.

Get ready for the fallout, the AFL has been exposed as utterly corrupt in how they dealt with this. Even AFL fans who traditionally have their heads buried in the sand and no freedom of opinion are openly talking about it.

The AFL should pay back all the government money they have taken over the years and opt out of WADA

WADA isn't the problem. It's just so obvious that what happened here is the code signed on and dragged its heals in implementing the systems required to meet the obligations of the code. Running away isn't the answer here. The code simply has to accept it f***ed up and has some growing up to do.

Money has flooded the code, but it didn't raise the professionalism I'm afraid.

I thought this was going to be a post about the coach who knows nothing about drug taking having a drug overdose
