Afl defends three strike drugs policy and claims it had been approved for drugs in other countries - so it cannot use those as an example. The ASA claims it cannot say whether other countries have approved drugs for use against the AFL in that way.
AFL denies using illegal drugs, but admits it used more of an experimental one - the first tested as effective against AFL players than normal human anti-doping drugs.
In an open letter to the AFL chief executive, Dr Simon Chapman from the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority said the ASA's statement contradicted every step taken by the clubs to protect their players and to prevent other drugs being illegally used.
"I believe you will be shocked to hear that you have not taken into consideration the extent to which other countries have tested drugs for and against the AFL and against other sportswriters or their sports journalists to help keep the game clean and fair," Dr Chapman wrote to the AFL's chief executive officer, Gary Pert, on Wednesday.
"Your position is the position of an organisation that is trying to stop dangerous, illegal and potentially harmful drugs being used in any manner - and that includes the use by people who are not professional athletes," Dr Chapman added.
Former AFL players claim AFL players were repeatedly exposed to blood-type-controlled drug forgeries and other banned substances.
The club says it has strict policy in place, but that it was a case of a legal player using legal drugs from overseas to "keep the game clean and fair".
"What we have taken into consideration is that the vast majority of prohibited substances are from overseas... that they are not available legally for our sport here in Australia to use," the club said in a statement to Australian Sports.
Dr Chapman said there were no legal banned substances that could be tested in a similar fashion to the banned drugs, but did say that there were a few banned drugs used in Australia against international sportsmen and women for a medical use.
AFL executive: I 'didn't realise the extent to which' drugs were used
Dr Simon Chapman, a former senior assistant commissioner with the AFL, said the ASA's stance would only lead to more players being caught in the crossfire of doping.
"It's the end of Australia for players to be subject to such risks and to the wider Australian sports community, to be exposed to such unknown substances with unknown risks and I think there would be a growing public concern," he said.
AFL spokesman Gary Pert said the AFL would work with any organisation that came forward and help educate players on how to protect themselves.

As one of our readers wrote yesterday, there was a time when there were some legitimate concerns about allowing people to watch the game on their laptops or other devices. As I've said many times before, I'd also be uncomfortable with spectators with small, handheld devices and wireless headsets, and even people using cell phones while playing the game. There may have been some legitimate concerns about video games being played on televisions that wouldn't work with a game console and on smartphones, but I don't think there were any real issues with spectators watching on the TV's and tablets that weren't already resolved.
If the issue is anything resembling this today, that's not going to change and we won't even consider a delay on the regular schedule. We're confident in our ability to work around issues with our game, and look forward to our competitors bringing their concerns to us during our pre-release meetings next week.
