IT’s been a year since the AFL sex scan­dal blew up, turn­ing league head­quar­ters into an ethics crusader and cost­ing peo­ple their jobs.

So what came of all the mo­ral high-ground­ing?

Page 13 un­der­stands one of the women in­volved has qui­etly taken up a new role away from AFL House. She told Page 13 this week she didn’t want to re­visit the saga.

But the two male em­ploy­ees axed by GILLON McLACH­LAN for tak­ing part in ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties have found their feet.

For­mer AFL gen­eral man­ager RICHARD SIMKISS is now sit­ting pretty at ol’ mate CRAIG HUTCHISON’s Croc­me­dia em­pire, work­ing as the group busi­ness di­rec­tor on $390,000 and also the chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of Ball­park En­ter­tain­ment. For­mer foot­ball op­er­a­tions man­ager SI­MON LETH­LEAN, paid around $900,000 a year at the AFL, was over­looked for the job of Carl­ton CEO.

But he too now has a new role in footy as gen­eral man­ager of St Kilda, who McLach­lan bar­racks for.

The whis­per mill is in over­drive, that he is be­ing groomed as CEO.
