Former St Kilda president Rod Butterss has revealed his time as president of St Kilda was fuelled by alcohol and cocaine.
He told Damian Barrett on the Footy Show that he made key decisions while under the influence.
“(It was) a party environment after dark, there’s a lot of drugs,” Butterss said.
“A lot of drugs. A lot of alcohol, a lot of gambling.”
Former Saints captain Nick Riewoldt reacted to the revelations while on the panel of the Footy Show.
“That is a shock to me. That certainly didn’t apply to the playing group. I can speak factually about that,” Riewoldt said.
“(I feel a) A level of disappointment. We were challenging for premierships throughout that period.
“To hear decision were being made under the influence is disappointing to hear that as a player.”
“I’m happy for him if he’s in a good place now but disappointed to hear that is what was happening.”
