  Drug mule Cocaine Cassie, 24, unveils her dramatic physical transformation - as she lifts the lid on her lesbian lover, the horrors of Colombian prison and why she STILL insists she's innocent Convicted drug mule Cassie Sainsbury has credited diet and exercise for her incredible body transformation since being locked up in a Colombian prison.   The 24-year-old from Adelaide was caught trying to smuggle 5.8kg of cocaine out of Bogota inside headphone boxes in April 2017. She was sentenced to six years but was released from El Buen Pastor women's prison in April 2020, three years early.   When she was first jailed, Sainsbury was engaged to Scott Broadbridge, and claimed she thought the packages in her luggage were gifts for her wedding guests.

Collingwood president Eddie McGuire has threatened to go to court if Port Adelaide is allowed to wear its traditional 'Prison Bars' jersey in next year's Showdown against Adelaide.

McGuire's comments came after Port Adelaide chairman David Koch stated that the Power should be able to wear the historic jersey against Adelaide next year, due to fans not being in attendance in AFL fixtures this year, as well as in future Showdowns.

Kieran Loveridge bragged to associates that he unleashed a flurry of punches on Rebels bikie Matthew Rymer during the attack, but later admitted he panicked after being "stitched up".Loveridge is serving a minimum 10-year sentence for the 18-year-old Mr Kelly's manslaughter after punching him in the back of the head in Kings Cross in July 2012.

"I think should allow us to wear it in Showdowns, because Showdowns have such significant heritage value for South Australian football, and that's what I will be discussing with the AFL when we talk about wearing it in the Showdown next year," Koch told FIVEaa.

Ken Hinkley's side will be allowed to wear the jersey in Round 2, due to it being Port Adelaide's 150th anniversary this year.

The Prime Minister announced the long-awaited reopening of bars and restaurants, and set out the rules that must now be followed. Containment did not only have positive consequences . While has prevented the virus from spreading further , it has also placed the country in dire financial straits.

However, McGuire called the Power chairman's comments "disingenuous", saying that he riles up Port Adelaide's fans for an outcome that will not eventuate.

"What annoys me, and I think David is being so disingenuous to his own supporters, is he goes on South Australian radio or TV and he fizzes them up," he told Footy Classified.

"The Magpie is the Collingwood Magpie and that's that. There are major things when you have an identity and it's your trademark and Collingwood's is the Magpie.

"David doesn't have the guts to tell his supporters that it's finished."

The Magpies president was visibly frustrated when Koch's comments were brought up, even pretending to sleep while they were played, suggesting that the argument surrounding the heritage jersey was "boring".

  Tony Mokbel's attackers sentenced to more than nine years in prison Teira Bennett and Eldea Teuira have been sentenced to more than nine years in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing Tony Mokbel in Barwon Prison last year, leaving the drug kingpin in a critical condition. The pair stood over Mokbel and called him a "f***ing dog" after stabbing him with an improvised knife in the yard of Victoria’s maximum security prison.Mokbel, who is serving a 30-year prison sentence for drug trafficking, suffered stab wounds, a fractured skull, a brain haemorrhage and extensive bleeding in the assault in February last year. He also lost some teeth.

"Every single time Port Adelaide has asked, we've said yes. Even when they played a final against Richmond, which really had no reason," he said.

"I don't want to buy into this because Port Adelaide is celebrating their 150th anniversary, they're a mighty club, we wish them all the best.

"I don't want to go into this again and again because we have handshake agreements, we have contracts, we have trademark agreements, the AFL owns the trademark."

McGuire suggested that he expected the AFL Commission to keep Port Adelaide from being allowed to wear the iconic jersey in every Showdown, but suggested problems if it didn't stand in the way of the Power.

"If the AFL commission doesn't do what it's there for, i.e. protect its clubs and its trademarks, then they're going to really get into some (trouble)," he said.

"Mate, relax. Any time you've ever asked on a special occasion, we've always said yes.

"If (the Commission allows Port to wear the jersey), we'll get the bloke with the horse-haired wig to decide.
