The top up players were first used 12 months ago in the 2015 NAB Challenge by Essendon. Port never asked for assistance then, it was only when the situation became 'real' they sought to take advantage.
Essendon can only top up 10 of the 12 players.
Just as wonderful as the bile coming from opposition supporters suggesting Watson is an intentional drug cheat.
The CAS ruling utilising strict liability does not need to establishe intent - yet you all are happy to label Watson a drug cheat asserting that he had intent to take performance enhancing drugs.
Not even ASADA boss McDevitt thinks that.
Well someone gets it.
