Former Essendon star Nathan Lovett-Murray is preparing to sue the club after claiming injections given to him throughout his playing days had a negative impact on the development on his child.
The former Australian rules footballer with the Essendon Football Club said his daughter Harmony had developed behavioral issues and a mysterious growth on her chest. Lovett-Murray claims that supplement program of the club that exploded in a lengthy saga that saw 34 players banned is to be blamed. Lovett-Murray remarked there is no doubt in his mind that the injection program we were put through has had some impact on his daughter and added it is something that he thinks about every day.
Lovett-Murray is preparing a $1 million Supreme Court damages claim against the Essendon Football Club after continually seeing specialists about his daughter. The 145-match veteran said players are still not sure what all was administered in the name of the supplement program before the supplements scandal erupted. The former Australian rules footballer commented there have been health concerns with Harmony and they have seen some specialists. Lovett-Murray added there are some behavioral things that we are concerned about and there was a hole in her chest that was leaking mucus, and we still do not know what it is. The former Essendon star said they have got to do more tests but those tests cost more money.
Lovett-Murray was one of the 34 players banned by the Australian Football League for doping after being investigated by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) in 2013. Nathan was rookie listed by Essendon in the 2003 Rookie Draft. He served approximately fifteen months of his suspension and missed the entire 2016 season as part of punishment for participating in the Essendon's sports supplements program that included the use of a banned performance enhancing substance, Thymosin beta-4.
In response to Lovett-Murray’s complaints, Essendon released a statement claiming they offered support to the former star. The statement reads the club offered its support on various occasions after the management of Nathan Lovett-Murray raised concerns with regard to the health of Harmony. It was further added that the club has not heard anything further from Nathan or his management on this matter for almost a year now, but remains committed to supporting him in any way possible. The Essendon statement also reads that the claim of Nathan is being dealt with in an identical framework and process to that of the other 33 players and added the club has now settled 31 of these claims and is making every attempt to bring all claims to a conclusion in a timely and appropriate manner.
League chief executive McLachlan remarked the AFL and the Essendon football club will do everything we can to help Nathan and his family in what is clearly a very tough period. McLachlan added he thinks that has been implicit in this is the uncertainty of not knowing what the players got and remarked that is always been one of the most challenging aspects of this. The League chief executive said Nathan’s management is still negotiating with Essendon in the broader sense and also commented that he thinks Lovett-Murray is one of the last couple of people to not finalize their compensation claim.
