Stephen Dank, recently handed an international life ban from the sports industry, announced that he will appeal that ban and reiterated his intentions of possible legal action against ASADA. He also announced legal action against the AFL, but he has yet to file any motions. Dank, through an attorney, submitted a statement to the AFL legal department indicating his appeal. The appeal has been set for a tentative date of August 17. However Dank has asked for an extension so he can better prepare even though there is still no word as to whether or not he will actually appear before the hearing.

Rick Browner reporting for AFANA from Perth

Even if you remember these events from 2003 - the space shuttle Columbia disintegrating on its return to Earth, Andre Agassi winning the Australian Open in tennis and Netscape being taken down for Mozilla - you will be forgiven if you don’t remember that 2003 was the last time that the West Coast Eagles defeated the Collingwood Magpies in Melbourne. Andrew Gaff of the West Coast Eagles dives for the ball in a game earlier in season 20152003 was a very long time ago in football terms and the Magpies may have expected the trend to continue as second placed Eagles traveled to Etihad Stadium in Round 16. All things must pass and so it was with the hoodoo when - despite horrific shooting on goals - the Eagles ran over top of the cooling Pies.

Todd Goldstein of the North Melbourne Kangaroos in a match earlier in 2015North Melbourne has continued its roller coaster season with a Round 15 victory over a disappointing Geelong side. After an even start to the game which saw the Kangaroos trail by a solitary point at quarter time, the Roos kicked into gear during the second quarter and never looked back.

Returning to the football field after the murder of their coach Phil Walsh, the Adelaide Crows came to Perth for a Round 15 encounter with a West Coast team that also had strong connections with Walsh, an assistant coach under John Worsfold from 2009-2013. The wounds were still raw and emotions close to the surface for both teams as they stood together arm in arm for a moment’s silence in memory of Walsh before the start of play.Luke Shuey of the West Coast Eagles

Adelaide players were a little sluggish at the start of the match after a fast start by West Coast,

Gold Coast Drug Underbelly Exposed

by Lachlan Hellyer reporting for AFANA from Toronto

Photographs of Gold Coast Suns star Harley Bennell allegedly using illicit drugs in a Launceston (Tasmania) hotel room have been leaked to the press. Another Gold Coast Suns player confirmed to the club he was with Bennell on the night, though no photographs of him have been circulated, and his identity is not currently known.Harley Bennell looks upfield for a team mate earlier this season in an AFL match. This development comes in light of allegations made by disgraced former teammate of Bennell’s, Karmichael Hunt, that as many as 12 Gold Coast Suns footballers joined him for an end of season cocaine binge in 2014. The names of the players implicated by Hunt have not been made public. The images of Bennell, reportedly taken in March 2013, are a stark reminder that the AFL’s fight against illicit drug use is more serious than they may have been prepared to admit. The formative years of the Gold Coast Football Club will be forever tainted by its association with Karmichael Hunt. That is not to say that a Gold Coast player who took cocaine or any illicit substance is not entirely responsible for his actions. We are all just prisoners here of our own device, as the great Don Henley once sang.

Scott Camporeale on the occasion of his 250th game in 2007Adelaide has appointed its midfield coach Scott Camporeale as interim Senior Coach for the rest of 2015 season on Monday, replacing the late Phil Walsh. Former West Coast premiership coach John Worsfold also joins the club in the newly created position as Director of Coaching on a short-term contract. The two men will be working together for the first time since 2001 when Camporeale was in the middle of his playing career at Carlton where Worsfold was an assistant coach at the time. Camporeale played 233 games for the Blues from 1995 to 2005 (he was part of the club's 1995 Premiership side) and 19 games for Essendon from 2006 to 2007. He worked as the Bombers' assistant coach for the next four years before he joined the Crows as Midfield Coach in 2010.
