AFL CEO Halts Essendon Funding Until Club Stops Paying Suspended Coach

WAITING TO HEAR BACK: SPORTAL's Ronny Lerner reported the AFL's statement on Thursday also said that the league had written to Essendon twice in the past week "seeking assurances from them that Hird was not being paid." The league claimed that they "still haven't heard back from Essendon." Demetriou: "Since September, the AFL has been in consultation with the Essendon FC concerning the terms of James Hird's suspension, including the fact he cannot be paid by the club for a period of 12 months. The AFL has since sought confirmation and is yet to receive it" (SPORTAL, 12/12). In Sydney, Massoud, Hooper & Wilson reported one of sports scientist Stephen Dank's closest medical allies has confirmed in court papers that Dank "provided banned peptide CJC-1295 to an NRL player." Dr. Ijaz Khan -- the physician responsible for injecting suspended winger Sandor Earl in '11 -- has "disclosed Dank's role in supplying the prohibited substance to the ex-Canberra Raiders flyer" (DAILY TELEGRAPH, 12/12).
