Consistent evidence from the ASADA investigation last year recorded that Thompson never encouraged the potentially dangerous and allegedly illegal injecting regime and on two occasions fought to prevent it.
People keep banging on about him bringing in the Weapon, therefore by default, he is a big a culprit as anyone in this whole affair, but read that line above & it sounds like he didn't have the enthusiasm for this injections program as others in the coaching staff did.
More to the point, Wilson spent the first few months of the saga demanding Thompson be sacked, suggested he was a coward who invented a back injury to hide away from the furore, he had far too much power around the club and had led essendon to destruction. All without any evidence, just moralistic grandstanding bullshit. She has never once been held accountable for anything shes written or the blatant hypocricy of how Thompson went from devil to saviour anx back again several times in her "message". The truth is she will simply take any angle that allows another attack on the larger Essendon community. And therefore i would never use anything shes written as proof of anything. Walkley winner for being fed propaganda from Gillon? Deadset farking joke.
