Apologies for being "off air" for so long but I get sidetracked very easily with other things these days.
I think I will make a suggestion to AP to produce a stamp for each disqualified Essendon player. It will be a great revenue raiser. Could be made with all the different values to accomodate letter deliveries for same day, 2 days, 4 days, 6 days,1-2 weeks etc.
It will give the animals and flowers a bit of a rest for a while.
Remember - your heard it on GOMC first!

Happy New Year to everyone

Perhaps I should explain the above for overseas member.

34 members of a major football here in Australia were banned for 1 year for using sport enhancing drugs and we had a new arrangement with our Australia Post to increase ordinary letter rate by 42% and the introduction of added cost for next day delivery, etc etc.

My suggestion was written with tongue in cheek and a form of protest with a good slice of sarcasm.  Wink

Happy new year cuzzie.

On the Essendon saga, this should really have been put to bed ages ago.  I do agree with the verdict but the timing has become a bit of a joke really.

I didn't realise that there was only one player which said no to the injections and is still free to play.  Smart boy.

Happy New Year to you too John.
Totally agree and James Hird should have been charged with more serious offences.
I, too didn't know there was one player who said no. It makes the others even more guilty then I think.
Football is getting too money orientated, I'm getting sick of the whole scene.
I think I will try a new hobby - let me think - Oh how about stamps?  Cheesy

Yes Tony. I'm afraid that is true.
Oh for the days when Aussie rules league players held down a week long job, trained twice a week at night and had a stubbie at half time to keep hydrated.  Grin

It made the sports news headlines over here and then got smothered with corruption updates about the overpaid Blatter etc. Closely followed by Seb Coe valiantly trying to hold the moral high ground in athletics.

At least with Aunt Sally down my local pub anybody caught cheating gets taken behind the shed and morality induced. Wink
