ESP Manager Seeks Assurance From Bombers That Clients Not Be Penalized Amid Drug Scandal
Published June 6, 2013
Player Manager Craig Kelly has placed Australian Football League side Essendon Bombers on notice, "seeking assurances from the club that none of his contracted clients will be liable for any financial penalties" as a result of the AFL and the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority investigation, according to Caroline Wilson of THE AGE. Kelly's Elite Sports Properties "is one of a number of player agent groups looking to ensure the Bombers guarantee players a safe workplace in the future." Kelly said, "If a player is penalised or fined for something he has unknowingly or inadvertently done then we would be arguing that the club should be paying that fine." ESP manages eight Essendon players "including the out-of-contract Tom Bellchambers and Alex Browne." A number of other Bombers' contracts remain on hold, "including those of Cale Hooker and Stewart Crameri" (THE AGE, 6/6).
