Lions to check Dank's role at AFL club

Despite claiming Stephen Dank only had a brief stint at their AFL club, Brisbane have vowed to check what he did was "above board" after the controversial sport scientist sparked a drug scandal.

And Lions coach Michael Voss has welcomed the prospect of a whistleblower amnesty in the AFL in light of the Australian Crime Commission's (ACC) investigation that uncovered systemic drug use in sport with links to organised crime.

Voss confirmed on Friday that Dank had a "limited" consultancy role at the Lions in 2009.

But after probes into the possible misuse of supplements by Dank were launched at AFL club Essendon and NRL outfit Manly this week, Voss said on Friday that the Lions were compelled to check what had happened under his watch.

"It would be negligent not to. But he (Dank) had limited involvement and I am not concerned at all," Voss said.

Worried that all sports had been "tarred with the same brush" following the ACC's dramatic findings, Voss believed the AFL should cut some slack for players who wished to aid the explosive investigation.

"I would encourage whistleblowers to come forward - we want to move on," he said.

"The last thing we want is the innocent to be implicated. At the moment, that cloud is hanging over the whole code.

"If the AFL wants to instigate a whistleblower policy, then I welcome it."

Voss said it was "always in the back of the mind" that his players might have taken supplements not thoroughly researched but believed his club had nothing to fear as the spotlight focused on Australian sport following the ACC's report.

"I trust the people we have in place. I trust our program - I have no concerns," Voss said.

"It (cheats) is always in the back of the mind. We really try to ram into the players and everyone, everything we do must go through the doctors.

"If you put anything in your mouth, you are responsible for it.

"That's why I stand here confidently and say I believe we are looking good."

Voss said he had "every faith" in the current AFL drug testing regime but was counting down the days until the cheats signalled by the ACC report were exposed.

"I think everyone is looking forward to that moment," he said.

"I think the fans are - we are. Until that happens, I guess everyone is implicated."
