Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy and chief executive Ron Gauci believe the sooner implicated clubs and players are told by the NRL that they're subjects of the Australian Crime Commission's investigation into performance-enhancing drug use and match-fixing in the sport, the better.
It's believed that as many as six NRL clubs have been named in the ACC investigation.
On Monday, the ACC had reportedly given league powerbrokers permission to inform affected individuals and clubs of their involvement in the investigation.
But until they are made aware of this by the NRL, and then subsequently let the public know they are being targeted by the ACC, Bellamy says the innocent players will continue to suffer.
"We'd like (the NRL) to come out and name names I suppose or name teams or individuals," Bellamy said.
"Obviously I don't know the legal ramifications of that ... but I think that would be ideal if that could happen.
"We're all sort of tarred with the same brush at the moment, you'd like to think at some stage the innocent ones will be not under suspicion anymore."
Gauci added: "It's a position that the club has held as well.
"We are very supportive of the process but by the same token if allegations are being made and there is information that we should be aware of as club, then by all means tell us.
"The best way to handle this situation is to know and then be able to address ... otherwise what you are doing is you're tarnishing the sport and the industry."
Gauci said the club have had 'very positive' dialogue with the relevant authorities since the ACC bombshell was dropped on Thursday and that as of Monday afternoon the Storm hadn't been told they had any concerns with regards to performance-enhancing drug use and/or match-fixing.
Bellamy said he didn't have any reason to be concerned about potential medical malpractice within the club and Gauci reaffirmed that confidence by saying: "We have very, very clear processes and governance processes internally. We are very confident of the processes we have in place."
