In August 2013 Hird was suspended for 12 months from involvement with any football club. This came after a doping and supplements saga involving the banned peptide Thymosin beta-4 and its use at the Essendon Football Club.

After the announcement today that Hird was no longer the coach of Essendon, the internet responded quickly.

Twitter user Troy Hallum was the first to tweet, beginning the #PutYourPeptidesOut hashtag.

From there, it just kept rollin' on out.

Some people didn't have any peptides and had to make do.

It is expected that an interim coach for the remainder of the 2015 season will be announced shortly by the Essendon Football Club.
