I don’t want to derail the Hurley thread anymore than I have already done, so this is my last comment on the matter.
The AFL should have let Jobe keep his Charlie out of respect for the AFL Doping Tribunal’s decision. A symbolic finger up to CAS. He copped a ban. There was no need to humiliate him further. He handed it back, but was about to be tapped for it. As you said, it’s the AFL & optics are all that matters.
