    The AFL says it relates to separate matters.

    “They own their mistake and do not want the work of the AFL impacted by their actions,” AFL boss Gillon McLachlan said on Friday.

    Lethlean has only been in the role for a few months.

    Andrew Dillon has been appointed acting football boss.
