    Widespread doping, match fixing & organised crime links across Australian sport

    Massive, sad and disturbing news unveiled at this morning's press conference. Very light on details thus far but this looks to be potentially the biggest story in Australian sport since Leo Barry's mark in the dying stages of the 2005 AFL grand final.

    If you didn't already know this was going on you're a ****ing muppet.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Reckon that most cynics or realists (like myself) would assume that Oz was not immune to problems affecting the rest of the world

    Trouble is that kids/sporting tragics etc would not even consider it

    If the Eels have been taking drugs I hope this inquiry helps them get a full refund for anything taken post September 1986.

    Sorry I forgot that in Benchy's world unsubstantiated allegations = guilt

    As the Sea Eagles are under investigation, they should be shut down immediately and stripped of every title that they have ever won

    You're entitled to your view on Lance and having held off until he admitted his guilt. But you most definitely cannot then call yourself a cynic or realist at the same time.

    Anyone who was a cynic would have believed Lance was doping. Every single person who wants to call themself a cynic would have thought this.

    Always knew Aussies were dopes, didn't realise they were on drugs too though.
