A Swiss court has rejected the appeal by 34 current and past Essendon players over their AFL doping bans, Fox Sports reports.

The appeal was the last option available to the players as they tried to clear their names.

The failure of the appeal means the AFL can proceed with a commission hearing that will decide whether Bombers captain Jobe Watson is stripped of his 2012 Brownlow Medal.
