TAKING HEAT: In Melbourne, Brent Read reported ASADA "has copped a shellacking for a second successive day over its handling of the aborted interview" with National Rugby League Cronulla player Wade Graham. A day after NRL CEO Dave Smith found no justification for ASADA's decision to suspend the interview process, Melbourne academic and lawyer Martin Hardie claimed that "the anti-doping agency had no idea how to deal with athletes." Hardie "also ridiculed comparisons with the Lance Armstrong case" and suggested World Anti-Doping Agency President John Fahey had acted like a "spoiled brat" with his response to the NRL's handling of the ongoing inquiry (THE AUSTRALIAN, 5/10).
