Drugs in sport

With all the news lately about PED drugs and drugs in sport in general.

From a very reliable source. Tonight a AFL player from a Melbourne based team
has been arrested for drug trafficking. Not PED either. Will come out in the next 24-48 hours.

I won't name the club it player for legal reasons. Got me thinking. Has there ever been
a players in the NBL failed a drug test or released for reasons other than being a below par player?

Webster tested for having synthetic cannabis in his system after a Perth game a few seasons ago now.

Actually, the synthetic cannabis he got was legal and was bought at a 'milk-bar'.

Morale of the story..just because something is legal doesn't mean it is WADA-approved.

And that synthetic stuff is actually dangerous in comparison to the real thing. Funny that it was legal for a point.

JANE COWAN: But Ketamine isn't the only drug the players appear to have taken.

Here James Harvey is heard talking about abusing ecstasy.

JAMES HARVEY: One flipper every hour on the hour for 10 hours.

SHANE WATERS: Yeah your just wasting your money mate.

JAMES HARVEY: Mate it doesn't f...ing matter.

SHANE WATERS: Yeah I suppose.

JAMES HARVEY: Doesn't matter.

SHANE WATERS: Sorry I forgot your f...ing on $500,000 a year.

JAMES HARVEY: (laughs)

Phew,

Thought this might have been about the 36ers player being given estrogen throughout the season.

There are a few players that tale various drugs. Are they performance enhancing? Depends if you believe some of the drugs myths.

Some would surprise you.

Does the NBL do regular testing? Never heard of it...

If they don't test, they will never know if they have an issue I guess?

'Nothing to see here folks'

On another matter, the NRL appears to be having their own painful fingerpointing at several clubs over drug issues too. I wonder how many of these clubs will be found to have cheated the system and will have to play for no points in 2013, plus return any recent premierships?

Return the Storm's premierships, NOW!
