Yes Terry, if Fraser had been given more ruck support he would have made a dangerous forward. As it was he kicked over 150 goals.
Agree vocans. The overwhelming amount of supplements coming on to legitimate and black markets to service mainly amateur bodybuilders and vain women, as well as athletes is proving too much for WADA hence the "including but not restricted to" and "other substances with similar chemical structure or similar biological effects" lines used on its prohibited list.
Out of interest, I did what a wary Essendon player may have done when told by Dank that AOD 9604 was not on the prohibited substance list by visiting WADA online. AOD 9604 produces "no results" which is b/c it has not yet been given govt approval, but they advise you to check with your local anti doping authority. So I keyed in AOD 9604 on the ASADA Check Your Substances section and guess what: APPROVED for: in competition, out of competition, via all routes!
Turns out it confuses AOD 9604 for an ADT Booster which is, as far as I can tell, a vaccine for diphtheria and tetanus!
I think the Essendon players could have been forgiven for not researching further.
Yes, very interesting article Redb.
