This just shows even the best are human but saying he made a mistake is crap he made MANY for 10 years. So this isn't a mistake it was a way of life and thats the problem in that interview is they are acting like it was just a mistake but a mistake is bumping into someone on the street not taking drugs for 10 years
Seriously mate, you are voicing a lot of opinions here that you obviously know very little about, and to be perfectly honest it makes you sound pretty silly. GO READ ABOUT IT FIRST. Some non biased research as well. Wikipedia is good because it is a collaberation of research, not just rubbish trying to push the anti drugs message. Books or articles by independant researchers are great because they don't have a hidden agenda usually. merely to present the actual facts. This whole thing is a farce. Joey did it because he wanted to get loose and have a good time. No other reason. The reason he is now shooting for the sympathy vote is because otherwise the media would make an example out of him by practically crucifying the poor bloke over something that really is a VERY MINOR OFFENCE.

That's right, the interview and confession was all about damage control - shock everybody straight up by admitting using it for so long, then throw in mention of his apparent medical condition, and pressures of life, and let the public join the dots and feel sorry for him. Throw in a couple of emotional testimonials from his brother and ex-team mate and you've convinced the majority of viewers he was really struggling with an addiction and has now faced up to it and will change his ways.

I just saw it on the news and they were interviewing Newcastle fans and they're all talking about him as a hero for admitting his mistakes and facing up to it on national TV.

Very clever PR.

MSTR..."Wikipedia is good..."
man you are flying!!! Come back out of the clouds my friend. That is the comment of a spaced out individual. Look, you will get a lot of support from your doping mates on here about this because no doubt you all enjoy what you do. But dude, the logic and the doctors agree. Your a twit.
And before you go on with any more of your "most of Australia" logic drink some water (but not too much) come back to reality and realise that it is simply the party drug crowd you hang with. Not "most of Australia".
Boxing Banker, who is a our resident doc and has tried the odd pill by his own admission, will provide you with some insight. Stay away from Wikipedia and your party drug crowd for your info and go talk to some doctors.

yeh the truth is that most of australia is on that legal drug called alcohol which is the dirtiest most destructive drug out there, and dickhead the "reality" is that the majority of people who choose to take "party drugs" do it knowing the risks and take care when doing it, and when it comes to ecstacy you will find that a doctor can not give u a definite response when it comes to the side effects and long term effects because every pill is different and if you are smart and actually want to take care of your self the best bet is wikipedia and other objective sources rather than a doctor who will just spew negative crap about holes forming in your brain etc.

i took "party drugs" in moderation for 7 years and i had some of the best experiences ever, met some good friends and finished my degree in the middle of it all, and the best part was that after having my first pill, i never set foot in to a pub/bar or alcohol fueled environment ever since.

If Joey was playing like he was partially under the influence of ecstacy.. playing the best football in the world i hope the dragons take notice, score some good pills, win a few more games next year and.. reach for the lasers. haha

poor joey

You would have to be the biggest clown on these boards. I also said I read two books about it as well. I guess thats a bit out of your league though, conisdering it involves READING. Do everyone a favour and punch yourself in the face. You thoroughly deserve it. The average 11 year old has more intelligence than you. Not to mention more social awareness.

Good point. It would be very humiliating for his kid, and would really be destroying his family life. The media just want to make a scandal regardless. The whole thing never should have got this far.

Danny weidler seems to be involved with everything bad at the moment.Always see the ugly ginger bastard in the background of players tryn to get way from the paparrazzi.

Poor joey takes a few pills and gets made to look like a bad person.
