Federal MPs on both sides of politics have urged the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) to provide more details about the extent of drugs in sport, arguing yesterday's bombshell announcement has cast a shadow over every professional athlete.
A year-long investigation by the ACC has found widespread drug use within Australian sport, with some athletes being given substances not yet approved for human use.
It has also found links to organised criminal networks, which have allegedly been involved in match-fixing and manipulation of betting markets.
The publicly available version of the report does not detail which sports or players are involved. The ACC says it cannot disclose that information because of legal reasons.
But Liberal frontbencher Joe Hockey says it is unfair to those athletes who have not been involved in using performance enhancing drugs or match-fixing.
"We're all left with the impression that the vast majority of professional sportspeople are involved after the drama of yesterday," Mr Hockey told Channel Seven.
"If I were the authorities, I'd be getting it out there as quickly as possible about exactly how far this goes, rather than tarring the brush across every professional sportsman in the country."
Former PM Kevin Rudd says he shares Mr Hockey's concerns about what impact the report will have on other athletes.
"The key thing now is to establish the facts - which players, which clubs," he said.
"Because I'm a bit concerned too about every person out there, who we've all watched, admired, spoken with in the changing rooms... now walking around today with a total cloud over their heads."
However, he said he was sympathetic towards the Crime Commission, because its role was to prepare reports which are then forwarded on to various police forces for prosecution.
The Government has announced this week that it will significantly boost the powers of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) to allow the "full and unhindered investigation" of the issue.
