Was reading that he was saved by the fact that he was injured at the time.Most odd Bukuya didn't get a notice.
It's like a Donnie Brasco movie.
The only reason I believe the Sharks players have had their bans backdated and effectively been given a get out of jail card is that ASADA didnt have shit! After all this time, millions spent investigating the 'darkest day in Australian sport' and dragging peoples names through the mud, ASADA came up with diddly squat. This is just token ban thats more about ASADA saving face and covering their asses IMO.They reported on 9 news that WADA had stated they would not challenge the bans as a condition of the players accepting them.
Weren't the players in danger of WADA not approving the suspensions if they deemed them to lenient?Why would they appeal such a weak punishment? Should have been stood down for the usual two years but they have instead got off lightly..

I thought they got the OK from WADA before they accepted the punishments making this story a non issue between WADA and the players.
The suspensions needed to be approved from WADA so not sure why they would need to appeal something they need to approve; seems like a lot of red tape jumping through hoops to me. To me it's interesting all of the support WADA was giving ASADA this last year and a half now it's why were sitting on this for so long? The show cause notices should have been sent out in late April/May if the ex-judge and read through the reports and decided to proceed.
quick bit of looking and i found thisSince the players got away mostly scott free with peptides, what are the chances that a good portion of those using them before are back on them. Some of those chief suspects seem to be back making their superhuman efforts in metre gaining and general effort. I know its an annoying topic and no-one wants to hear anything more on it but I am still suspicious that its fairly widespread as they can't test it and it gets results.
