Essendon are rising from the ashes of a 2013 season which, although featuring many on-field highlights, was tarnished by off-field scandals.
As the calamitous events around Cronulla unfold, the inevitable comparison with Essendon has begun. The obvious common factor is sports scientist Stephen Dank.
In the aftermath of the announcement of ASADA’s investigation into Essendon, Bomber fans feared for the first time in our lives for the actual survival of the football club.
In July 2012 Andrew Demetriou took an extended break from the game – during the season, no less. Sure, the Olympics were on and that explains two weeks, however the break was more like two months.
There is a new disease striking fear into sporting clubs around Australia known as ASADA Syndrome.
In the days, weeks, and months ahead, Essendon faces a terribly difficult and possibly catastrophic time.
