I can understand his sentiments... I would have found it very difficult supporting Sandy if they were aligned with Collingwood...I'd find it hard to support any team aligned with Collingwood...

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

I don't blame Galea. I am glad the gulls are not with the filth anymore. Galea did not get much of a go with the flith there. He has settled in very well after his stint in SA. Very much a local at Williamstown coming from Spotswood.

It was same with a lot of our VFL listed players when we were aligned with the Bulldogs. Guys would play really well in the reserves for a number of weeks, but couldn't got a spot because a Bulldogs player took up the spot. Partial alignment with the Roos is going along well at this stage in my opinion.

Yeah I seen many cases of this when Port were with the Kangaroos. Only difference was Port would pick there team on form and ability and the Kangaroos would not like it. When guys like Moran, McMahon, Harvey were playing VFL 2s it was because they were not playing well enough to earn a senior game and we had better VFL listed players to put in the team. There are many draftees who need time in the VFL reserves and are not up to the standard of VFL seniors..Why should these guys get a game in front of blokes that they are not as good as??

Heres how many MFC suppoers think of the Sandy alliance! From bigfooty. [b]Sadly I would be much happier if we were Box Hill. This is why:[/b] Box Hill HawksGoal Kickers:J. Morton 3, B. McGlynn 2, D. Morrell, A. Neville, S. Gibson, B. Dowler, B. Renouf, C. Stokes Best Players: B. McGlynn, B. Renouf, J. Kennedy, L. McQueen-Miscamble, S. Kenna, J. Morton SandringhamGoal Kickers: N. Sautner 9, E. Poyas 5, B. Holland 2, P. Summers 2, M. Newton 2, S. Tregear 2, C. Liddell, A. Yze, R. Crowe Best Players: C. Garland, N. Sautner, E. Poyas, C. Lamb, A. Yze, M. Warnock [b]Great, our two's had a huge win[/b], but where do they learn to give 100% and better themselves so they are AFL ready. Look at the best players in the Box Hill team - they're getting flogged but I bet there learning and 4 of the 6 are AFL listed. [b]Sandy is full of washed up AFL players who are VFL stars (Poyas, Lamb), Box Hill have other young guys like Batsanis and Papaluca who Hawthorn can get a head start at drafting[/b]. They played in a team that kicked 25 goals but besides two blokes playing in their last year only Newton was able to kick goals and he only got 2. [b]Who coaches this team anyway, don't we have strong ties, maybe when we are 10 goals up Sautner can be replaced at full forward with the bloke who will undoubtedly be our next full forward (not saying he's any good but he is the only option).[/b] What about the best players, once again a guy in his last year (Yze), a dud who clearly doesn't have the skills for AFL and IMO never will (Warnock) and Garland. We all hate him right now but credit to the kid he seems to be giving it a real shake at Sandy, if he really has been better than a guy who's kicked 9 (whats that line again supermerc - something about having a set of dodgy pictures) then bring him in to the side, but make sure he is ready to go this time.

Of course, if Melbourne were up near the top - as they were two years ago - their supporters would be saying how great it is their young players get to play in a winning side and have to really earn their spot!

:D Thanks for your encouragement regarding washed up AFL player in our team. Of course we have a few ex AFL players ,but not washed up, and can you name one VFL side who doesn't have any? They all have ex AFL players in them only some are better and younger or older but still play for the club and jumper and enjoy getting a kick and winning. Our affiliation with Melbourne has worked well for both clubs but last season and so far this one hasn't worked the best with many players losing form and confidence but there is light in the tunnel with many young players coming through Martin,Maric, listed and rookies Spencer,Zomer,Cheney and Valenti all players who will make a difference soon. Melbourne do their own recruiting so who they sign up is up to them Sandy can only play the players they leave out. go zebs zebra :wink:

Valenti looks like being promoted to the senior list...Martin was drafted..... Some Melbourne supporters are strange...they howl for heads to roll...they get their way and then moan about Sandy winning cos we're supposedly not developing their players...there'sone player in particular (Isaac Weetra) who played 2 AFL games earlier in the season and now find himself playing in our seconds...and quite honestly he's not up to our seconds standard... Some demons fans expect us to play every single Melbourne listed player (rookies included) in our seniors in a designated position.....over the yeras we've had a lot of rookies and 2 in particular must have been unbelievable at the training camp cos they produced bugger all at Sandy,,Brendan Van Schalk and Dale Carson...what the Melbourne recruiting people saw in these players is beyond me...but somehow it's Sandy's fault that they didn't develop... Bugger me...we taught them how to play in a winning environment.... Most Melbourne fans I've come across have been very fair to Sandy....seems a few are now looking for scapegoats for Melbourne's poor form and Sandy are an easy target... I reckon you learn a lot about football when you're winning....getting flogged every week aint a lot of fun...just ask Melbourne supporters.

The Kangaroos supporters have been really supportive of our alignment with their team and have yet to read anything negative about on Big Footy yet.
