No Doz

How ‘Bout Some No Doz and Mother at 1/2 Time?

The current Essendon Supplement scandal highlights a number of core problems with football and sport in general.

The key issue is how far are athletes willing to go to make the team or win the event?

Athletes are always willing to go to great lengths to position themselves in front of the competition. But if you thrown enough money, and heap the glory on any sport – you begin to corrupt the process.

Combine this with gambling and whatever ‘purity’ was left soon starts to shrivel and die.

The tragedy is that while we are becoming more accustomed to it happening at an elite level – think AFL, ARL, the Tour etc. it is now happening in junior teams.

At grass roots level kids as young as 10 are taking a dangerous mix of drugs and high caffeine drinks before matches to get the edge on their opponents.

And this is what is showing up in hospitals lately.

Kids are washing down cold and flu medicaiton like Sudafed or pain killers like Nurofen with three or four cans of high caffeine drinks like Red Bull, V or mother.

If you think it would not happen to your kids – you might like to think again.
