Bombers drama set to continue

ESSENDON players and suspended coach James Hird still face the prospect of receiving infraction notices for their part in the supplements scandal. that cost the club a place in this year's finals.

Essendon was fined $2 million, stripped of draft picks and excluded from the finals after being charged with bringing the game into disrepute.

Assistant coach Mark Thompson was also fined, while Hird (pictured) was suspended for 12 months for his part in the affair.

World Anti-Doping Agency chief John Fahey said the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority investigation was ongoing and sanctions could result.

"What has happened to Essendon has been dealt with by the AFL under their rules, nothing to do with ASADA's code or the rules I'm responsible for as president of that body (WADA)," Fahey told the ABC.

"Anti-doping is still under investigation and there will be events there as I understand it that will unfold in the months ahead."
