Melbourne media have named Maddi Blomberg and Ali Gronow as the women involved in the AFL executive affairs scandal, swirling around Melbourne this week.

The Age has now identified the women, hours after the AFL Executives were forced to resign their jobs.
The Herald Sun newspaper in Melbourne had reported that two senior executives were having affairs with two woman AFL staffers.
One of the women – Maddi Blomberg – is based in Sydney and has worked as a AFL development officer.
Ali Gronow is based in Melbourne (currently on leave) and has worked as a legal council for the AFL.
The rumours were first reported and days later, under pressure, the AFL were forced to act.
The affairs were well known in Melbourne circles.
Just 2-hours after the news conference in Melbourne, media named Maddi Blomberg and Ali Gronow.
Maddi Blomberg is based in Sydney and is in a relationship with Rugby Union star Kurtley Beale.
Ali Gronow is a AFL Legal council, the Age reported.
AFL Football executive Simon Lethlean and general manager of commercial Richard Simkiss were forced out after “innapropriate” relationships on Friday July 14 2017.
