Brisbane chief executive Greg Swann says Justin Leppitsch is a "measured" man and there's no worries over the under-fire Lions coach's temper.

Leppitsch reacted angrily at a press conference last week amid suggestions of a player revolt at the struggling AFL club, labelling the rumours "crap", "lies" and a "bunch of bulls**t".

"That stems from one minor blow up at a press conference and every coach in the world has had a minor blow up at a press conference," Swann told Brisbane's Triple M radio.
