And then top executives Simon Lethlean and Richard
Simkiss stood down after it emerged the pair had “inappropriate
relationships with two younger women who work in the AFL
industry”.

Who will replace them and does the AFL need to have a good hard
look at itself?

Sam Landsberger is unsure whether the AFL would replace
Lethlean as football operations boss before the end of the
season if his successor comes from a club.

Mick Warner says “there’s an arrogance about the AFL”.

“I hope that the AFL use the experience of the last three weeks
just to have a look internally at themselves and the way they
conduct themselves,” Mick said.

“I just hope that there’s some reflection, not talking
specifically about those two guys who’ve lost their jobs, but
just the way they go about themselves.”
