"Also .... news on Melbourne TV tonight is reporting 1/4 of Collingwood players returned positive results to recreational drugs during the off season"

Most of those are performance decreasing, Floyd. Smoking a scoob during the off season, or taking a rave biscuit on new years is a bit different to systemic cheating.

Gutter journalism 5 minutes before the season opening bounce from a Murdoch hack called robbo.

you're right floyd it's rife, and difficult to draw lines, I would argue even those not 'on it' are up to all sorts of questionable behaviour in the off season, it appears the new normal is a constant risk management regime

that's not to say sheepdogs recreational pharmaceuticals are to be banned. it does need working out though. it probably hasn't been worked out because it'd require society (and especially it's rulers) to have a good hard look at itself and what'its willing to make public

He think "ah what the hey hey, I'm on holidays, and It's perfectly legal"

A few days later, he returns to Australia..... The AFL take a sample of his hair... it comes back positive re' thc......
Can this player say "fuck you"? Can this player say "what I do on my holidays overseas is none of my employers business, AS LONG as I don't break the laws of the countries I visit"? If this same player is offered some ceremonial Kava whilst visiting a tribe in Fiji, does he say no, and insult the tribe?

well personally sheepdog I'd say he can do whatever he wants in his free time,legal or not. but of late, Australia has gone down this weird puritanical path where people are expected to appear all pure healthy and pious regardless of reality

the fact that this appearance is most important is the problem, because to casual (outside) observers they appear as delusional and twisted as that weird 80s televangelist dude, but hey all good on the surface...until it's not

I prefer reality and its sores, it appears the modern person doesn't

if the terms and conditions of your employment were to abstain from all illicit substances then yes your employer would have a right to sack you. the employee knew this already and so has no excuse. if he doesn't like it then he should argue the point prior not after.

whether "pot" is right or wrong in this context is arbitrary.

But the substance was not illicit when and where taken.. It was not an illicit substance.

I'd take it that drink driving would also be in most contracts, with it being a criminal offence..... All states in Australia have 0.05.... Many states in the USA have 0.08..... If a player on holidays was to blow 0.078 in California, he would be allowed to drive on..... But here it would be a charge.... Similar scenario to the cannabis situation.....

BTW, don't smoke the stuff..... Waste of time....

"Former prime minister Tony Abbott knew his base well. That’s why, despite the crying need for reform and his commitment to deliver it, he quickly took off the table several of the most obvious options for change.

Malcolm Turnbull put them back, where they sat undisturbed for five months, before he too started taking them off.

Several of Australia’s leading experts in economics and tax law were kind enough to supply The Saturday Paper with lists – remarkably similar lists – of the biggest problem areas.

Let’s start with outright tax evasion. This is what makes a lot of small business people – the tradie who’ll do it cheaper for cash, the fish shop owner who won’t accept credit cards – very rich.

“The cash economy taskforce estimates it to be worth about $10 billion,” says Ann O’Connell, director of tax studies at Melbourne Law School.

Other estimates suggest it is much bigger than that. One credible proposition suggests 14 or 15 per cent of the whole economy is black.

The introduction of the GST by the Howard government was supposed to curtail the cash economy but has actually served to foster it, O’Connell says.

Dale Boccabella, of the school of taxation and business law at the University of New South Wales, agrees. Now theses dodgers evade both income tax and GST.

The aspect of it that particularly nettles Boccabella is the “complete deafening silence” on the part of politicians about widespread tax evasion in the small business sector. He contrasts this with the strong criticism of the tax practices of large corporates and multinationals. But small business is a bigger problem, he says."

The Beatles thought that money couldn't buy you love.

Someone better tell Mikey Wright that, the fucker has gone from zero to hero since his sponsor fell out of love with their ex- bestie Craig Anderson.

And I'm not talking about the paid advertisements but the unbelievable amount of editorial love showered upon him in the last few months.

Ando, conversely , is yesterday's man.

His surfing obviously not fine enough for even the slightest editorial attention since being dropped/ quitting / whatever.

Coincidence that mags love Mikey over Ando now ?

That bogan mullet and VB beats hipster hair and tight jeans so suddenly ?

Who says that the rag traders still have undue editorial influence everywhere even in this day and age ?

Note also that when Rip Curl decided to launch a marketing campaign then it was saturation coverage on EVERY surf media .

That's saturation coverage of the announcement of a marketing campaign, not even of the campaign itself.

Yet Rip Curl's exposure of the use of slave labour ?

Not so much coverage ie zero.

Ain't these Brave New Days of an independent, free thinking, up encumbered surf media such a breath of fresh air ?

All good happy ass, but no employer has rights over the employee on their holiday. The only employers that have got this through into 'contracts' or work conditions have been on the basis of safety, so the mining industry is particularly stringent, and even miners can indulge while they are on holidays (and on weekends, as long as it's out of their system by the time they next clock on)

WADA code notwithstanding, they shouldn't be allowed to test for non-performance enhancing drugs anyway. Can't see why world sport wanted to get into that business. Puritans and fools.

This is parallelled by what the same Establishment is doing to Jeremy Corbyn. In the latter case we are seeing an unprecedented firestorm of hostility that replaced the derision he was subjected to in the leadership election. I'm 57 and have never seen anything like it. The hysteria is unrelenting and has gone up significantly as Cameron and the Tories are on the slide over Brexit and now the Panama papers... where Corbyn and his party's popularity is now larger than the govt. The latest tactic is an endless attack on him over alleged anti-semitism within the party. The Establishment really are terrified of both men because their messages are resonating first with the young and now increasingly the rest of us. Sooner or later, should they succeed, the same will happen to regenerate the politics of Australasia....and not before time.

During the GFC we had to have, wealthy Chinese pounced, and bought up big. Some real estate agents saw a huge opportunity to profit, researched and understood the immigration requirements, and created a new market window. Immigration policy, plus the right contacts, meant that rich Chinese could buy their way into Australia, by owning businesses, or substantial amounts of real estate. From personal experience, at the time they aggressively sought and bought farms, fishing, and built new highly profitable businesses on dirt cheap land at bargain prices. A huge student accommodation facility was built on prime real estate in the heart of Adelaide. In the same vein as the knowledgeable with means picking the bottom of a stock market clean. Thus their children could live here too. Its still happening.

'You can find it at the shitty Stab website if you feel like it.'

It was breath taking in what was being said and in ear shot of so many, they didn't care who heard, OZ lawyers/accountants giving advice on how to structure the investment with "bogus" OZ co-investors etc etc ......... ah who gives a fuck in the country where everything is for sale ........... I said later the bogans in the suburbs ought not be worried about the boat people or they religion they follow its what i witnessed that should scare the shit out of all of them ......... investment yes, ownership of our land no ......... most 3rd world countries prohibit it so why do we allow it? ........... anyway I'll leave it with you to solve

You need to remember one thing though Floyd. They can buy the land, they can own the land, but they can NEVER take the land or remove it.
