Under-fire Brisbane Lions coach Justin Leppitsch has lashed out at continued media criticism of the AFL club and his players.

A newspaper column on Saturday took square aim at Tom Rockliff, describing him as overweight and a regular on Brisbane's social scene who sets a bad example as Lions skipper.

"I can cop it. One thing I don't like is the players copping it, that's for sure - particularly some of the crap that's written about our players, basically lies written in the press annoy me about our boys," Leppitsch told reporters.
