The father of Essendon player Alex Browne has told of his disappointment in the club’s handling of the supplements scandal.
Murray Browne, who is also the AFL Players Association Alumni Advisory Board chairman, told The Age that the Bombers had let them down throughout the saga.
“”It’s been just an ongoing saga for us. As a family our main issue has been to support Alex through it,” Browne said at the Brownlow Medal breakfast at Etihad Stadium on Monday morning.
“He’s OK, and unfortunately we’re just waiting for the end to happen.
“We feel a bit let down by the whole governance factor of the club. He’s OK but there’s a slight uncertainty about the future with him and his health, and there shouldn’t be any uncertainty really.
“But we’ve made a lot of investigations and we’re confident he’s OK.
“Let’s just hope the saga ends soon.”
The Federal Court ruled in favour of ASADA on Friday after Essendon claimed that its joint investigation with the AFL into the supplements scandal was unlawful.
