Apparently he has a lot of the Essendon records in his possession? Could be related, otherwise I'd go with some investigation into Paul Little that he is somehow involved with because Little is a corrupt property developer (redundant I know)

He said, while collecting a paycheque from fox footy to talk about football.

“Talking about football” is a generous characterisation of his incoherent, lobotomised mutterings

Maybe they thought his nickname was something to investigate.

And if I'm gonna cry, I don't need your shoulder.

The police didn't say why they searched the house, but I would bet it would have more to do with corrupt/dodgy real estate dealings than with the Essendon Drugs shenanigans.

Unrelated, but what was the story about Bomber Thompson being an arsehole to some charity drive or something? It was something like everybody at the Dons gave money to a charioty, or for some blokes leaving do, but Bomber went "gently caress that, this money is mine" if I remember correctly.

What if he's using commercial quantities?

Yeah he’d have to be supplying or something for it to be drugs. They wouldn’t waste time on raiding someone for using. Not that I’m ruling drugs out, mind.

If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?

To Shrug.

Some sort of involvement in ice distribution seems to be the most agreed upon rumour but the guy who actually knows stuff doesn't have any info. Bomber had a fairly significant cocaine habit for a while so it wouldn't come as a surprise if he ended up doing a bit more than just using.

Based on his tv appearances I’d say “for a while” is less accurate than “to this day”

Harley Bennell has been up to Harley Bennell things
