BOMBER THOMPSON IS THE COKEHEAD BUT IT’S THE AFL THAT SHOULD BE IN GAOL!
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.
After four years of investigations and legal proceedings by ASADA, 34 players at Essendon were found guilty of using banned peptides. But Thompson’s arrest is not about peptides, not this time, it’s about trafficking in cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamines, with the alleged participation of bikies.
One of whom, Thomas Windsor (above), was living with Bomber at his Port Melbourne “warehouse” residence.
The doping scandal resulted in Essendon players being suspended and the club copping a fine of $2 million including being banned from playing any further in the 2013 competition.
The AFL, which sees itself as the guiding moral light of all players and officials, must have known of Thompson’s heavy usage of cocaine, and also that of many other AFL players and officials, (everyone else knows) but it refused to acknowledge the predicament, instead attacking all Essendon players, including coach James Hird. Many of the players were innocent kids.
It affected all the players’ families and friends, but that was okay as long as the AFL was seen to be acting “responsibly”.
Thompson was due to accept the training position at the Gold Coast Suns until one phone call suggested authorities should be aware of his cocaine habit and the Suns reneged on the offer. Why do administrators always pretend they are the last to know?
Thompson's AFL and media future is now in tatters, he has lost his life and his wife.
Drug use is rampant in both the AFL and NRL codes and administrative bodies are desperately trying to isolate certain players as scapegoats yet, with the right legal advice, players can minimise the damage by claiming a “mental health” problem that any tribunal will adjudge as excusable and worthy of humane assistance.
I don’t know about the NRL but the AFL board should be disbanded and a new board appointed. From now on their dumb complicity in the problem can only become more apparent.
Social drugs are here to stay and AFP heists of tons of the stuff only make the problem worse. Without proper regulation we are about to see an explosion here of the US opioids outbreak supported by pharmaceutical companies that reward GPs who readily over-prescribe them as pain controlling (palliative) drugs.
As a reward for over-prescription, GPs can take their wives on free holidays to exotic havens leaving the mess behind for someone else to clean up.
Big pharmas spend billions on lobbyists who convince US legislators to be sympathetic toward the continued GP-sanctioned use of what is effectively highly addictive synthetic opium.
President Trump has now begun the overdue eradication of 95% of the world’s opium production in Afghanistan… a $60 billion crop that supports the entire Taliban war effort. This was inexplicably allowed to continue and flourish by Obama, both Bushes and the CIA. And the question needs to be asked why the Left remains desperately addicted to open borders.
Addictive drugs that are readily available, both legally and illegally to all people, are screaming for regulation… prohibition has never been an answer.
Governments have regulated and taxed the hell out of one of the worst addictive drugs in alcohol, forcing the public into realistic, albeit illicit, alternatives and they expect incompetent football administrators to solve a worsening epidemic in our sports?
If you want a reliable supply start footy training now.
