From Henry Thornton in today's Crikey newsletter:
" ... elite athletes who failed a drug test have had Olympic gold medals taken from them. This case is different, the players concerned having supposedly not failed a test (but then, how would we know under the AFL's "three strikes" policy?)
But in this case we have the testimony of the club itself. West Coast won the 2006 AFL grand final by one point. In the light of recent revelations, can they be rightly regarded as a fair winner?"
I bet the Sydney Swans have been asking themselves that for a while now. Then again, given the 'three strikes' policy, there's no guarantee all the Swans were clean, either.
