Bombers defence

Taking action against Essendon players over supplement use has been compared to charging a construction worker for getting an asbestos-related disease.
AFL Players' Association official Ian Prendergast made the comparison while outlining his version of the supplements saga before a Senate inquiry in Canberra on Friday.
The committee was taking evidence, under parliamentary privilege, in relation to proposed new federal laws to align Australia's anti-doping scheme with the world anti-doping code.
In arguing against the tough new penalties and the stripping of legal rights from athletes, Prendergast said Bombers players had received a raw deal and the scandal had affected their mental health and ability to perform.
