BOMBER THOMPSON MOVES FROM USER TO DEALER
...and PP predicted he was gone in January this year
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
There would be very few Aussie Rules followers, players or officials who were not aware of Bomber’s cocaine habit and his association with bikies. Perhaps the coppers only took an interest when he was accused of gravitating to dealing in ice. http://pickeringpost.com/story/bomber-thomson-is-the-cokehead-but-it-s-the-afl-that-should-be-in-gaol-/7890
There is a drug use pandemic across all sports codes as players and officials become desperate to find something that provides them with better performances. The only “get out of gaol free” card for players who are caught, is to claim a mental health problem, which many do.

There will always be drugs in most sports and at every party. Ice is now the cheapest, the most effective, the most popular, and the most dangerously addictive but when punters are betting on sports results they are entitled to know who has swallowed what…including dogs and horses.
Kids are dying, not from drugs, but from foreign materials found in them. It’s a simple formula governments have not yet woken up to, and it goes like this:
1. The AFP and Border Control boys proudly confiscate tons of the stuff.
2. There is then a shortage that shoots the price up.
3. This higher price gets the fringe crooks and bikies involved in backyard labs producing cheap copies. But only after the AFP has confiscated tons of it does it then become a reasonable risk-reward exercise.
4. These "copies" involve materials like paint thinner, toothpaste, bleach and varnish remover. That was shown to be the case in Canberra last weekend. And in some extreme cases even crushed glass is included that allows an excoriated stomach lining to deliver the drug more quickly into the bloodstream.
5. All drugs deliver the maximum effect when used for the first time, the effect diminishes rapidly with further use. Then it becomes known as, "chasing the dragon".
6. Kids who find the drug is having less effect, take more, and more, and still they crave the original effect. So they take even more, and that’s when they finish up in the back of an ambulance reporting that a certain drug was responsible.
7. Newspaper reporters note the drug, usually MDMA (or ecstasy) and report it as being responsible for so many deaths.
Rubbish! It wasn’t the drug at all, it was the over-ingestion of a markedly inferior, foreign, possibly poisonous product. MDMA is neither poisonous, nor addictive.
That possibly poisonous product only got into the drug supply chain because of a sudden shortage that forced the price high enough for the cowboys to reopen their garage drug labs.
The government taxes the hell out of more dangerous alcohol products and then wonders why people look for alternatives!
I have always maintained that for drugs to be safe they will have to eventually be regulated.
Meanwhile the AFL is more interested in politically correct footy where any suggestion of “racism” can mean a life ban. Yet the so-called indigenous round for our Aborigines appears as reverse racism. A white blokes' round is unthinkable!
And with players like Adam Goodes able to have a little girl escorted from the ground and questioned for hours without her parents… all for calling him an "ape"!
Bomber is accused of dealing, and that’s a whole different ball game. Unfortunately I believe it’s too late for him to claim a mental illness problem.
It’s the AFL that should be banning itself and claiming a mental illness.
Let’s have an AFL Administration that isn’t seeing double.
