Sick must be protected by AFL drugs code

Posted By

Sick must be protected by AFL drugs codeThe illicit drugs policy introduced by the AFL in 2005 emphasized upon confidentiality for avoiding the risk of endangering a player’s health and affected  chances of rehabilitation but it failed to deliver its core objective after Hawthorn’s Travis Tuck was named, fined and suspended.

Tuck was not addicted to drugs but had a mental health issue and will possibly be left betrayed by a policy that was contrived and compromised from birth.

The undiluted arrogance of AFL has surely betrayed Tuck and there are calls to change the illicit drugs policy of the league on an immediate basis.

Pakistan has more problems than just match fixingCricket is a matter of special pride in Pakistan and cricketers from the country have done their level best to portray a positive image of the country besides providing a source of hope for those whose everyday life is both tedious and joyless.

This is best evident from the fact that Pakistanis literally dance on the street when the Pakistan cricket team wins and burn effigies when the team loses a game.

It is, however, a breather for the Pakistanis that former World Cup winning captain Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi, both fearless Pathans schooled in the honor code have not been named in the match fixing scandals.
