Much as i hate him (as does most non-Sandy people) Sautner played a pretty fair game ... could play another year easy ... still never kicked many goals on Troy West :-)

Matty Little must be some chance to reach triple figures.
He has been in awesome form in recent weeks.
Would have to be an odds on favourite to be drafted next season.

Watching the Williamstown players walk off after comfortably defeating the Zebras at TBO. and all the Doggies supporters calling out well done Acker, but no mention of all the Seagull players who really did play very well.
The Acker crowd at 3/4 time was very easy to see on the oval as hundreds crowded around for the address but I don't think they all heard it. After all the game was in the bag for Willy. The paper said 1000 but surely 2/2500 were in attendance as the weather held off and Peter German would have been happy after the match.
Sandy players had a lean day with Captain Nick Sautner kicking 5 hard fought goals as backmen Will Johnson and Alistair Smith ,David Gallagher,Steven King were amongst their best.
Sandy ressies forward Matt Boland 6 goals continues to impress and heads the ressies goal kickers list.
Next week against Werribee a Zebra team effort is needed to win.

I dont like Aker all that much as a person but I think he is pretty spot on here!
.
: JASON Akermanis has blamed his poor showing in the VFL yesterday on a "dribbler who can't play".

Wearing No. 75, Akermanis was no more than a bit-part player in Williamstown's 58-point win over Sandringham at Trevor Barker Oval as he serves time in the VFL as punishment for a controversial Herald Sun article.

Heavily tagged, the Brownlow medallist managed just five kicks, nine handballs and four marks in his first game in a month after a hamstring injury.

Speaking on radio station MTR this morning, Akermanis said his opponent - St Kilda listed Alistair Smith - was only worried about stopping him, not helping his teammates.

"That’s what happens when you go and play in that league ... you get some dribbler who can’t play at all, who can’t kick, his whole job is to hold you to make sure you don’t get the ball, and doesn’t get off me to go help his team and that’s why his team got flogged," Akermanis said.

No respect to the VFL or his opponent who kept him to 5 kicks.
Just another big head who comes back to the VFL and gets his ass kicked.
Is he saying he's never been tagged in the AFL ?
Maybe the games passed him.

I say great game by the young kid Alistair Smith to kick Akker's butt.
Definately a big head who struggled. What does he expect, the kid to greet him with open arms and make life easy. There will be no easy kicks for Akker and If I was German I would even dump him to the Williamstown reserves !!!
The seagulls do not need big heads who down grade the vfl. Williamstown have been in terrific form of late and the last thing they need is some tool to downgrade them. Again I say great game by Alistair Smith and shame on you Akker !!!!

I think you need to read the article in its entirety, as Aker had some other less self-centred things to say, such as:

"(Wiliamstown) play team football and they don’t and we win games of football," he continued.

For Brownlow Medallist was a little more generous immediately after the game, saying he understood why he'd been so heavily tagged.

"I'd do the same if I was the opposition coach," Akermanis said yesterday when asked about the close-checking tactics.

"It was good because it freed up one of the other boys.

"You want to get many, many touches and get your confidence up but, in the end, the team won so what more can you ask for?"

He would benefit from having to work harder for his kicks.

"It's been five weeks so I'm feeling very rusty," Akermanis said. "It was a hard day at the office on a personal level, but terrific from a team perspective, even at this level.

"They've been working hard all year and they're on top of the ladder for a reason.

"Personally, it's not enjoyable when you're not getting much of a kick, but it's more about getting a load into my legs and getting back into a rhythm to help the group."
