Are 2015 retirees eligible for top up players?

If so, Essendon could get some handy players.

Thats a great point Purple.

Stokes and Kelly come to mind. Lake. Adam Goodes....

Dank will get them off and where is Jimmy

How would dank be able to do anything other than increase the penalty?

I'd say yes. Obviously some probably won't want to, but there might be a few boys going around that may jump at the chance to play footy again.

Imagine if the bombers had taken the same pathway as the Cronulla Sharks this whole thing would have been a distance memory, the millions of dollars wasted, the pain for players and supporters could of been over years ago

I'm confidently confused

We've never finished with the spoon before, still think we could avoid it but it'd be a massive challenge.

Has anyone actually sketched up a potential Best 22 without those 12 suspended players?
]

Carlton and Brisbane are still fairly hopeless.

And we finished 4 times with the spoon in history. Last one was 1933.

I just put a revised 22 in our Best 22 forum discussion.
Sorry I meant Post-World War 2.

I feel more for Jobe Watson. I think he is done. He will retire. Its ruined one of the nicest blokes in sport.
This was my first thought as well.

I watched the "Chosen Few" special at the end of last year profiling the AFL captains and he looked a shattered man. He looked drained of life in general and I'd be really concerned about his mental health moving forward :-\

Commission is meeting this afternoon to discuss it and what to do about Essendon this season, but I can't see any way he does.

Didn't half the league have similar dodgy schemes going on at the same time?

People like to insinuate this, and it's absolutely true that every club will be looking for the little exta 0.1% things, but this is pretty extreme really. I highly doubt other teams would have been going this far, because this is exactly the consequence you get and you very rarely get away with it.

For anyone interested the full decision can be found here http://www.afl.com.au/staticfile/AFL%20Tenant/AFL/Files/Arbitral_Award_WADA_ESSENDON.pdf

I'm part way through it and man, unless there's a big turnaround it's pretty damning. Dank should never work in sports again and Bruce Reid should receive a metric flowerton of compensation because it seems as though he did absolutely everything he could and should have done, short of going directly to the AFL himself, and he got absolutely dragged through the mud.
