SPORTS CODES AWASH WITH DRUGS

Larry Pickering

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.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



What we hear about is only the tip of the iceberg because media has paid many millions for rights and they, and the clubs, fear adverse publicity. I am not saying these drugs are taken for enhanced performance but more and more players are constantly testing positive to drugs that have been taken in players’ own free time.

Deals have been done between clubs and code administrators whereby players are given the option of being reported in the normal way or taking time off on the basis of a perceived mental illness or pretend injuries, to attend rehab centres.

I can’t divulge any names on the lists provided to me from various sources as they are mere sources and I have difficulty getting confirmation from any authority... and players hang up as soon as the word drug is mentioned.

But my experience is that when this many unrelated sources confirm a story, then something big is afoot that mainstream media will not (or cannot) touch.

The main drug concerned is cocaine and I can’t see how that could be performance enhancing... it is usually taken as a party drug with indigenous players reportedly concentrating on ice. 

I have no idea how ice will affect a player’s performance but the amounts the Federal Police are hauling lately are astonishing.

Border Force Commander Sheehan said a total of five tonnes of methamphetamines and precursors to the drug has been seized in the past six months. Ice is cheaper but cocaine is more readily available.

"The commercial scale of drug trafficking comes hand in glove with the potential for violence, as evidenced in Western Sydney by the seizure of an increasing supply of illegal hand guns," Commander Sheehan said.

Increased police monitoring of night clubs using sniffer dogs has seen record amounts of a variety of drugs seized. Yet as soon as a large seizure is made, the same, if not more of the same drug, immediately fills the void. “It’s a losing battle”, another officer said.

                            Over $1 billion worth of ice in various containers

Pics of AFP Officers standing behind these massive drug hauls, serve the AFP well in terms of them doing their job, but the unfortunate results for users are devastating. 

Once a shortage is established the street price immediately increases convincing backyard factories to mushroom and new suppliers to ramp up production. The quality is then invariably poor, depending on what is laced with it to increase quantities.

The problem will never be solved with prohibition, just as prohibition never solved the alcohol problem. Cheaper and dangerously poisonous industrial alcohol, used during the early 1920s and 30s, killed 10,000 users who frequented the speakeasies of New York alone. 

The skyrocketing cost, and harmful effects of alcohol, has convinced many that party drugs are the go, and well worth the risk.

Overdosing today is common, but the reason for so many deaths is that users continually try to achieve the same ethereal effect they had the first time they used it.That just doesn’t happen, so they keep taking the stuff, “chasing the dragon”, until the amount, maybe not the poisonous nature of the substance itself, kills them.

I know you guys think I’m mad, but sooner or later there must be some control. Drugs must be regulated eventually. What we do now is simply not working because people will always take what they want. And the illegality makes it that much more attractive, as alcohol once was.

                                            Stoned kids, could one be yours?

Footballers will do what they want to, but we cannot allow our kids to die needlessly any longer. You can’t keep asking your kid to abstain from whatever his or her peers are doing. Sooner or later he/she will succumb.   

Regulation and the treatment of unfortunately addicted users is far more effective and cheaper than throwing them in gaol and sustaining an entire AFP Border Force that is only exacerbating a worsening drug problem.

I’m Henry Donald by name. I live in CANADA, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere. Few months ago, I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called HENRY LOANS COMPANY FROM USA who lend me an unsecured loan of $50,000 under 3hours without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via:( [email protected]) I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lend

I see this morning that twiggy Forrest has been extremely generous with his money...again.My only disappointment is ,that he has bequeathed it to world organisations ,and not exclusively Australian organisations.The world stage is the bloody Stick Insect's domain.GRRRRRR!!

Not a peep out of Ray Hadley this morning about the NRL plan to bribe the Rugby League players $400,000 p.a per club , to stop them taking narcotics and steroids , stop urinating into their mouths and in public , stop belting their wives and family ,stop physical assaults on the public , stop drunkenness in public thus bringing the game into disrepute and to stop consorting with the underworld . That doesnt leave a lot left for an overpaid , under intelligent Ape to do all day except l suppose training 9 to 5.30 x 5 days per week , like the AFL do.

Cassie a liar and a whore , who'da thought !

If the Earth were flat, cats would have pushed everything off the edge by now.

Unreason and anti-intellectualism abominate thought. Thinking implies disagreement; and disagreement implies nonconformity; and nonconformity implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyalty — so, obviously, thinking must be stopped. But shouting is not a substitute for thinking and reason is not the subversion but the salvation of freedom.

Hey IE - you will be missed, just as are so many others due to this behaviour.

I have read many comments saying don't give in and cannot fully embrace that sentiment. The comment from the brand new
"Cassy Mon 22 May 2017 06:26:09 am
Man up ya fool! Take responsibility for your own words and actions instead of blaming a woman who's not here - and couldn't give a shit about you. FO and take the 2 Facebook drag queens with you."
gives the lie to all the claims that this is merely childish behaviour.

It is not. It is an appalling and coordinated example of adult bullying. When DeeG, Dodo, and oz realist were discussing their "tactics" to not allow conservatives their opinion here by making personal and sexual abuse their modus operandi, they meant it. The moderator has indulged them.

Green energy -

Kangaroos, despite having a leafy and fiber-rich diet, don’t expel gas by burping or flatulence. Instead, their bodies convert the methane into acetate, which is then used as energy. Researchers are investigating transferring gut bacteria from kangaroos to cattle to cut down on livestock-driven greenhouse gas emissions.

The Don has called Islam a "great faith". I'm sorry trumpbots, but I disagree. It's a brutal barbaric ideology, based on a fairytale.

Man up ya fool! Take responsibility for your own words and actions instead of blaming a woman who's not here - and couldn't give a shit about you. FO and take the 2 Facebook drag queens with you.

Yet he gives the Saudis 150 billion worth of arms. Tell me who are the terrorists?
We are not here to lecture — we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship," Mr Trump said, speaking in an ornate, multi-chandeliered room.

"Instead, we are here to offer partnership — based on shared interests and values — to pursue a better future for us all."

The United Nations Agenda 2030 of Sustainable Development is not going away and its goals are relatively close to completion, now to include the forced flood of international migrants around the globe and the obliteration of national borders a

U.N. Planned International Flood of Migrants
.
In case you were wondering about the planned invasion of Europe and other developed nations, including the United States, wonder no more. Today, The International Organization for Migration, a United Nations Migration Agency, funded partially and generously with your taxpayer dollars for 65 years, is holding an International Dialogue on Migration in New York, on April 18-19, with the theme, “Strengthening International Cooperation on and Governance of Migration towards the Adoption of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration in 2018.”
.
I highlighted the words “regular, governance, Global Compact” to illustrate that this vaunted meeting of third world tin pot dictatorships aims to establish and control the global no-borders policy through an on-going flood of migrants to the west, destroying sovereignty and diluting nationality and citizenship. It is not about protecting migrants temporarily from tribal wars and conflict, it is about resettlement of huge populations and forcing multi-culturalism on those countries that resist and wish to maintain their “borders, language, and culture.”…………………”

Why The U.S. Really Attacked Syrian Militia Convoy
