    Inappropriate from the company's perspective generally means professionally (not the whole affair thing which is equally dodgy but none of the AFL's business).

    Lethlean has apologised for an "inappropriate relationship" with a female AFL employee that led to his resignation on Friday.

    Fellow executive Richard Simkiss has also resigned on similar grounds.

    WTF is going on inside AFL HQ??

    I mean seriously, consenting adults and all that and they insist on the guys resigning. But the invite to James Hird still stands. Pirorities wrong IMO.

    There will probably be an internal policy around relationships - which would form grounds for someone to be let go.

    Could have just quietly sacked them and said they were leaving for "personal reasons". It just seems so completely odd to me to make a big show of it with media conferences and all, drawing attention to it and making it headline news.

    In the same week they decided to invite Hird to present the medal. This seems to me a far greater moral failing than consenting adults having an affair, which seems to me is an offence against their wives rather than against the AFL. Not sure the wives would appreciate the matter becoming so public to add to the issue of their husbands losing their jobs.

    It just doesn't sit well with me. They have done the exact opposite on each case to what I would think would be right.

    Not after the big story in the Media this week. Had they left quietly the rumour mill would be working overtime.

    Plenty of people have taken leave or quit for "personal reasons" without those reasons being published

    Seems to me to be adding unnecessary stress to the families involved. Bad enough being in a relationship and finding out your partner is cheating, worse still if everyone knows about it. Having it all out in the press is just nuts to me. It is looking after the AFL's image and not giving a damn about the humans involved. How about giving the people involved some privacy to sort out where they are going with their relationship and just wear the media speculation and say the AFL won't be commenting on a private matter.

    Pretty sure they were just trying to get ahead of the media with it. One of the papers has already released all the details including the names and positions of the two female AFL employees involved. It was going to come out regardless and probably with plenty more speculation - if you get ahead of it you generally come out better off in my experience. It was two very senior AFL people, it wouldn't have just disappeared easily. It'll be forgotten in the coming days now.

    It it not something they need to keep ahead of the media with. The media have no right in the first place to report on it. They should have firmly done the "no comment" thing and told the media to respect privacy.

    On another note, tonights game is between two teams with different combinations of black, red and white uniforms.

    Another thing the AFL have never managed to get right. Bunch of frigging amateurs.

    Yeah, wish we could recruit a Daniher without the silly mustache, instead of the opposite...

    Battle hasn't done much. Sean Darcy looking like the correct choice. Based entirely on one half of football.

    Gee Daniher's come on this year. Hope we go Brander in the draft.

    Also Green plays like how Ballas should be playing

    God it's annoying how the Vic clubs keep getting these star father son players landing in their lap while we got zilch from our WAFL allowance.
