Essendon 34 Found Guilty

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has found the ‘Essendon 34’ who were alleged to have taken banned substances during 2012 guilty, and they have been suspended for the 2016 season.

The finding by the CAS has finished the saga, which has lasted for three years.

Twelve of the players are still active at Essendon, five others have moved to other clubs, and the rest have finished their AFL careers.

It is believed that Essendon will recieve VFL top-up players outside of the salary cap, however, it is unknown what will happen to players from other clubs.

Doubt has also been cast on Jobe Watson’s 2012 Brownlow win, which could be stripped off him, and awarded to Trent Cotchin and Patrick Dangerfield.
