Two headlines in today's online site...

Why the PM can smoke a joint but Willie can't

ACT legalises cannabis as AFL star Willie Rioli faces a four year ban

Can't elaborate further as no subscription access.

I had a look through the articles in a cafe this morning - you haven't missed anything of value.

Markedly absent from all this endless chatter in the Worst about Poor Lil' Willie, who only smoked a joint - what's wrong with that? is the inescapable fact of him also having substituted a bottle of Gatorade for his (mandatory) urine sample.

That's why he's a drug cheat and that's why he's going to be banned for 4 years.

I don't remember the Worst showing Ryan Crowley any such sympathy when he took an across-the-counter pain relief for his chronic back pain. What I do remember is how they called him a drug cheat. Hypocrites.

West readership or sales up 6 per cent? Whichever, West Coast membership is more than 6 per cent above the Dockers so you would think the West propaganda barrage should have increased by a lot more than that - despite Dockers readers dropping out. We desperately need a second daily paper with an alternative view of the footy world.

That was reported wrong. The actual statistic is that readers are now 6% higher.

Probably because of all the pro-marijuana legalisation articles those hippies print.

Gents & Ladies,

I read the article in The West this morning as well...the best way to describe the paper's direction is after watching Tropic Thunder last night.

Robert Downey Jrs character says to Ben Stiller's character 'Everybody knows you never go full retard.'

I believe The West has gone full retard.

So their defence argument against the 2006 flag would be that amphetamines are probably legal in some part of the world so why shouldn't they be allowed to use them?

I don’t want to start a habit of correcting The West as frankly no one has that much free time ... however;

Willie CAN smoke dope ... it’s just the AFL won’t let him whilst playing footy ... not sure why The Worst feels it necessary to go in to bat for him when it’s all down to Willies personal choice about which he really wants to do.

yep, subscription has been cancelled along with an email explaining my exact thoughts on The West Australian. I was tempted after the bloody Nic Nat crap in the paper when they got in the finals ( rub his bloody ankle?? ) but this past couple of weeks with the whole Rioli saga then the way they treated Nat Fyfe’s success as All Australian Captain, then his Brownlow success , it was the last straw!

Can we expect an application to the AFL for WCE to relocate to Canberra?

Pretty sure Tasmania has a west coast as well. Perfect fit, they grow opium there too.

I reckon they're saving up a front page update on Adam Hunter's missing tinny for the day Freo announces the new coach.
