Last night, I have accepted the resignation of GM Football, Simon Lethlean and GM Commercial, Richard Simkiss.
This has occurred following issues that have fully come to light over the past few days.
They were quite separate matters, but have caused distress and concern to a number of people.
Wow! And the diversity manager went last week.
Is this thre AFL exec who was nobbing his secretary?
Keep it in your pants Lethlean
Interesting time to announce it with the Hird thing buzzing around.
Yep, try and drown it out, they always find something else to deflect. Sarah (Liz) does it well.
“The pair stood down in the wake of allegations two senior AFL managers had affairs with younger female employees.” HScum
Governance and all that ■■■■ huh?
maybe gil should have done some back ground checks on the type of people he was hiring. FLOG.

Exactly. Surprised it didn’t get announced in time for the Footy Show like they do with all big AFL news.
Promoted Lethlean in March of this year too, AND he was in charge of the AFLW competition!
What a disgrace!
Oh the irony of bad governance
Big consequence for not keeping it their pants. Must be more to the story.
Presumably as the man in charge, Gil will accept full personal responsibility and resign. And if he doesn’t we’ll see unending editorials saying his position is untenable.

Promote Paul Hamilton to the position.
Imagine the field day SWSNBN will have on this one unless Gill feeds her some bullshit saga related story to make it disappear.
