Australian Football League Side Essendon Continues To Claim Innocence, Awaits Findings
Published August 12, 2013
CLUB MAINTAINS STANCE: In Melbourne, Matt Murnane reported Essendon "remains steadfast its players did not take any illegal or performance-enhancing drugs last season and is likely to challenge any findings to the contrary as the AFL prepares to announce charges against the club." Essendon Chair Paul Little said on Sunday in his pre-game address that the club "would get the chance to tell its side of the story should the AFL bring charges." Little: "According to the weekend press, charges are expected to be laid against the club and some of our club employees in the next few days. Should this be the case, we will then be in a position to carefully examine the charges, understanding the evidence that the AFL has relied upon to lay the charges, and then, after due consideration and deliberation, [we will] determine our response" (THE AGE, 8/12).
