Collingwood CEO raises drug concerns
Magpies chief executive Gary Pert has told Sports Today he doesn't believe a drug problem exists within the AFL.
This morning, the front page of the Herald Sun claimed Pert was concerned about a 'growing illegal drug culture in football'.
"It's not like I'm coming out saying I think there's drugs in the AFL," he said.
"I brought it up at the CEOs' conference really (to say that) clubs are dealing with this individually and so is the AFL to a point.
"All I did was say I think we should be dealing with an industry issue as an industry and lets work on this together."
Pert said the AFL and clubs were actively working to ensure support systems were in place to help players affected by drugs.
"One thing the club can't stop is young men actually making bad decisions and that occurs in our broader community and every day," he said.
"There's no doubt that that's within the AFL as well, and as far as I'm concerned...even if we've got one or two that are experimenting with drugs and potentially this becoming part of their lifestyle, then really we've got an issue."
Pert said all chief executives were responsible for the cultures of their clubs, and a streamlined system on dealing with drugs in AFL needed to be worked towards to protect the clubs, supporters and sponsors.
On the issue of clubs not being notified when a player records a first strike, Pert said he could appreciate both sides of the argument.
"There's no doubt that as a club, we would like to have that information because we think then we could provide better support if we had that," he said.
"But we appreciate that at the heart of the program, confidentiality must be maintained."
DERRYN HINCH: We see lots of advertisements, we hear lots of campaigns about the road toll. Don’t drink and drive. If you drink and drive, you’re a bloody idiot. Maybe we need a new slogan for another form of alcohol-induced death and injury.
