Joe Hockey's Next Budget

Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey says there are no easy options for Australia as he tries to 'future-proof' the budget

Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey says there are no easy options for Australia as he tries to 'future-proof' the budget.

The Treasurer told Triple M's Hot Breakfast this morning tough decisions will still need to be made.

"There are no easy solutions at the moment, the status-quo is unaceptable going forward," Treasurer Joe Hockey said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.

"There are a lot issues that were trying to confront, we tried to do it too hard too early, I fully accept that so does Tony Abbott.

"But we can't stop heading in that direction we've got to prepare for the future."

'John': Footy On ICE

A suburban footballer has opened up on Triple M Melbourne's The Hot Breakfast about smoking ice alongside more then 20 teammates before a practice match on the weekend.

'John' (not his real name) told Eddie, Mick and Luke it was the first time he used the drug and says he felt pressured to do so.

"To be perfectly honest it's a terrible drug and there should be no reason any club should be on it at all," 'John' told Triple M Melbourne's The Hot Breakfast.

John went on to talk about the reason he decided to smoke ice.

"Everyone had a bit of a kick and out of those 30 players there was about 25 to 27 that smoked ice before the game," 'John' said.

"The main reason is I get paid to play. 

"I rely on the income from footy it makes up half my yearly income.

"To have a look around and see the majority of the team taking a hit I should say I kind of felt obliged to actually take it."

'John' said it was the first time he tried the drug and that it would also be the last.

"John can you promise me mate, don't ever do it again," Eddie said.

"Because what happens, at some stage your going to wake up half way through the season you're going to wake up on a Tuesday, you're going to be sore and you know you have to play the next day.

"You'll go for the pipe and you'll feel good, you'll get through and that's how it starts.

"Gavin Crosisca tells the story that's what happened to him in the end.

"It became a vicious never ending cycle into despair, so please John, don't do it mate."

Ice Use In Grassroots Footy

Disturbing claims of ice use in suburban and country footy

Disturbing claims of ice use in suburban and country footy are coming as no surprise to those playing the game.

It's been alleged its being used as a performance enhancer and players as young as 14 are using ice, some with their coach's knowledge.

Hot Breakfast listener 'Jason' says he played with guys who were using.

"There were boys on my team who would be out and then they'd get to footy and need something to pick themselves up," Triple M listener 'Jason' said.

"You'd walk out to the changerooms out the back and there they are snorting stuff, sometimes smoking and giving them that edge to get into it."

Police Minister Wade Noonan says the allegations raised on the front page of The Herald Sun are very concerning.

"I'm absolutely shocked that a person in a position of responsibility such as a football coach would give the drug ice to a child," Police Minister Noonan told Triple M.

"Beyond belief that anyone would consider taking the drug ice in order to improve their game, in fact it's absolute lunacy.
