Hindsight is often described as a wonderful thing, and that belief has never been more true when looking back on the media storm caused in 2010 by AFL players admitting to taking caffeine tablets before matches. Caffeine was removed from the banned substance list in 2004, resulting in the consumption of caffeine tablets becoming commonplace across the AFL. 

In light of what we’ve heard and endured over the last four years thanks to the ill-advised Essendon supplements scandal, AFL fans can be excused for thinking that taking the occasional No-Doz before a game of footy is child’s play. The Watsonia Bugle contacted Stephen Dank to see if No-Doz could be consumed intravenously but he trailed off into some obscure diatribe about anti-ageing and how one day he would reveal the truth about it all.
