Andrew Bolt is on the radio at present, commenting that nothing has yet emerged from our Day of Shame.
Not true Andrew! On the same radio station (2GB) this afternoon there was a report that the North Sydney Bears (my local team) and a feeder to the Mighty Rabbitohs of South Sydney have stood down a player (possibly named, but not a player that anyone has heard of) for sending emails boasting that he can obtain peptides and similar goodies. He has not failed a test and he has not been charged with anything. But there you are. He has been stood down pending further investigation.
More shame (Sarc), on the same station a report that Bret Stewart of Manly Sea Eagles was arrested after a fuss in the pub during a bucks night several weeks ago. The full story: drunken patron was twice thrown out (sneaked back through a side door) and confronted Stewart when he came out. Police took Stewart to the station and sent him home pending investigation. CCTV footage showed no wrongdoing by Stewart and he was told it was all over. Club did its own investigation and got the same result. Not a story at all really.
A reality check, when you look at the number of NRL and AFL teams there are near enough to a thousand players in their senior squads (say 30 each), not counting the feeder clubs and under 23s. What if they identify a handful of bad boys? How many do you need to find to be surprised and outraged?
