    Why are stewards penalties so weak?

    Its time stewards got tough on people. I mean real tough not this wishie washie crap.
    These 6-12 months penalties do nothing, other than to give these people a nice hoilday for the money thier earned cheating the sport in the pervious years. How about grow some balls,change the rules to this. Regardless of the drug ( bi-carb, epo, cobalt) who cares what its is a drug is a drug.

    First offence 5 years , Second 10 years , Third life. You have to put some fear in people.
    To me its seems at the monment its like go your hardest if you get caught so what. Its only
    6 months, 12 months, 2 years. I'll just enjoy life untill then, get my licence back and go again untill I get caught. Theirs no deterrent for anyone to stop cheating or to not think
    about doing it. Get real with penalties

    Penalties are not strong enough you reckon . You will not find a bigger anti drugs advocate then me, but under your system dean Braun gets 5 years for bute ,which has a cut of period of 5 days. Nsw vets and lab,deans vet all gave evidence that the levels found in it horse's system was administered at least 7 days before,but he still got 6 months ,under your system he gets 5 years. Just before everyone shoots me down here who hasn't had a horse that hasn't been treated with bute 7 days from a race.

    Stewards don't set the penalties. Stewards administer the rules.

    Hi Greg

    I'd agree with you on this, I read an article before about bute and it said that bute only works for 72hrs (3 day's) so the the small amount that was in the horses system at 7 day's would have been no benefit to the horses performance at all. To me I find that 6 months was a little harsh. By the way just to let people know I don't know Dean it's just my opinion.

    Thats my point if you read what i said, i said change the rules. They used to set
    penalties here in vic, before this joke of a rad board came in. If you look at the
    results of the rad board all most every one who appeals gets a lighter sentence

    Bute is still classed as a drug, who knows if it could be masking something else

    Not arguing Jack. Can't pin it on the stewards though.
