Seeing the headline pop my first thought was "oh it'll be a few nosebeers and some weed what a beatup"... but uh, that's a lot of MDMA and ice... plus the digital scales and associated stuff seized.

I wonder if dealing funded the property and crytpo wins he's had or if he's just a full on idiot who decided this was all a good idea after a successful coaching career and an easy transition into the media? Ross the Boss may be a questionable unit but it's good to be reminded that he's not the king of weird.

Probably due to legal proceedings making it illegal to do so in some fashion, one would imagine. Defamation and all.

I doubt it. His defence will be he was stood over by a bikie gang and feared for his life (possibly true) and will spill every bean about the guys he was dealing with.

Still probably 3+ years though but I will be shocked if its even close to 10.

They were penalised for doing it every year from '92 to '96, and again in '02. Ricky Nixon says they were in 2000, and that he facilitated it, but the AFL isn't remotely interested in digging anything up.

Port Adelaide's runner Chad Cornes has been suspended for one match after swearing at North Melbourne's Todd Goldstein at Etihad Stadium last Sunday after the Kangaroos' ruckman collided with Port Adelaide midfielder Ollie Wines near the interchange bench.
The match day manager included the incident in his match day report and the AFL decided to suspend Cornes for one match as a result under rules that ban runners from interacting with umpires or opposition players.
Port Adelaide have decided to accept the decision and will use former player and development coach Trent Hentschel in the role when Power play West Coast this week.
The incident came just days after clubs were reminded that runners need to get on and off the ground as quickly as possible in an AFL memo sent to clubs last week.
The memo is understood to have emphasised that clubs need to ensure their runners perform their roles without getting in the way of and inhibiting the ability of players to play or umpires to do their job.

VFLW lists are out: http://vfl.com.au/wp-content/upload...omens-lists.pdf

Also, it looks like Carlton have snagged two top rugby players as code hoppers. Chloe Dalton and Brooke Walker won gold at the rio olympics for rugby 7s. Although Brooke was listed as an emergency. Still, taking paycuts (average base pay is 40k for womens rugby 7s) to play in the seconds is a huge blow to rugby who have just launched the Super W league this year as the top female rugby competition in Aus. Itsfine for now as the Super W has just finished but next year the season will probably run longer and players will be unable to play both codes.
