What is a WADA? A handy guide

With WADA appealing the AFL’s Anti-doping tribunal’s decision regarding the 34 Essendon players, it’s time to get to know this loveable international bureaucracy.

Here are the key points you need to know about WADA:

  • WADA stands for World Anti-Doping Agency or ‘Agence mondiale antidopage’ as James Hird calls it
  • Their purpose is to ‘provide opportunities for overseas trips to bureaucrats’ and something about drugs in sport. I think stopping them.
  • They are responsible for the World Anti-Doping Code, which 600 sports organisations have adopted and none have read
  • WADA are a proud partner of the international conspiracy to get James Hird
  • The mascot for WADA is Dopey the Bear
  • Almost everyone at WADA thinks AFL is a version of rugby
  • The AFL have already asked WADA for an interim report
  • WADA wonder if ASADA have ‘rushed things a bit’
  • When Ben McDevitt flew to Montreal to brief WADA, they didn’t know who he was and thought he was there to fix the heating. They noticed he was instead there to complain a lot
  • The main reason for the appeal was that several investigators felt like going on an overseas trip and had never been to Australia
  • WADA’s arch enemy is the World Pro-Doping Authority
  • If you say WADA three times fast, it sounds like a helicopter but people will think you are having a fit
  • WADA’s headquarters is in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, proving again that this whole Essendon saga is a conspiracy with the French behind it
  • The only AFL player they’ve heard of in Montreal HQ is Mike Pyke

    Mike Pyke is Canadian, right? That was the reason for the reference there I suppose. I wonder why no media outlet has ever mentioned before that Mike Pyke is a Canadian and used to play rugby?
