Demetriou warns public to watch words over drugs probe

CHIEF executive Andrew Demetriou has warned the public not to jump to conclusions about what the end result may be from the investigations into the possible use of banned drugs at Essendon.

The club yesterday announced it had postponed the release of some findings and recommendations from its own internal review until next week.

"They were due to do it today, but there has been a slight legal hitch which I don't think is every significant," Demetriou told reporters in Adelaide.

"We are privy to what is in the report, but we will allow Essendon to go through their announcement because they commissioned the report."

While pressure is building on the AFL to take action against the club in light of its 2012 supplement program, Demetriou said the ASADA investigation had to take its course, something that could take several months.

"I know that is frustrating to people, but they haven't even commenced interviewing players yet," he said.

"... they are currently finishing interviews with coaches and other officials. So I do think people should be very careful about some of the commentary."
