Ross Lyon press conference today...

Very disappointing to hear Sandringham referred to as the 'seconds ' today. The Zebras should have some kind system to penalize or reprimand the Saints. Sandringham deserves better.

I really hope some time soon that both Sandy and Willy stand alone the VFL needs it

The VFL should have some authority to discipline key AFL personnel who keep referring to the VFL as the Reserves.
Yeah, I'm dreaming !

Would be good Station, however I can't see it happening. Sandy don't have the money and Willy appear to be happy being the Bulldogs reserves. Willy don't even employ their own coach, he is the Western Bulldogs development coach. At least Sandy have their own coach now.

No wonder I despise St Kilda so much when their now failing coach shows so much disrespect the very successfull SANDRINGHAM FOOTBALL CLUB BTW how many premierships has LYON played in 0 none!

How many premierships has St Kilda won in 130 years? ONE and that was 55 years ago!!!
The sooner the Zebras are out of this toxic partnership the better off the club will be.

Still some the blame has to be sheeted home to the board at Sandy as they had the same chances as Port,Willy and Nth Ballarat to secure their independent future by going after pokies instead of having to rely on an AFL club giving them a handout.
A big sparkling new social club without pokies is not the way to make money esp as the club dosent have any other pokies outlets.
FFC the foreign Storm RL club have a massive gaming club in Springvale which is not far from Sandringham - how did the club miss out on that?

Ill try and make it to the AGM this year god willing LOL

BTW zebra I find it very strange that the club has very talented people like yourself,John Mennie,Dennis Galemberti and Dave Burgin on the board (all whom have been there since the early 1980s) who were instrumental in the club being so successfull over the last 20+ years that Sandy has now sadly ended up nothing better than a St Kilda "seconds" according to the current ST Kilda coach !

As you are so close to the action can you enlighten me as to why the club dosent have a pokies outlet to back up all the hard work that people like you do around the club?. Is it an anti gambling stance?

Saintgail

at least its recognised as a Side/ team by the saints
Hawthorn have Box hIll listed as a Development squad on their website...

WOW how very gracious of you!

I suppose we should be grateful for small mercies.

Maybe you should have a word in the arrogant Lyons ear.

why the angst to me Billy? You have much gre4ater knowledge of the VFL than me and I was just pointing out a fact-
I have no contact with Ross,

but in general it would seem that the VFL could be benefiting from the exposure that the AFL brings to some games, through alignments

I get you don't like St kilda- pretty obvious-
but how do you act to put more into Sandy so that they may move ahead financially without any link,
pokies Are on the nose in many peoples eyes and the easy purchase is gone last year,
the sponsorship dollar is tough so how would you promote the VFL and Sandringham to best put them in a position to survive?

They for starters they could play in a lower league with less costs and field a REAL local team instead of pretending the VFL is no more than the AFL reserves.

How would you feel if St Kilda due to finaiancil worries and the restructuring of the AFL had to borrow more than half its team from Collingwood just to stay in the AFL?

Well thats what its like for me and many Sandringham supporters. The Zebras are not the team that I have followed for 60 years and its one of the reasons I dont often attend matches.

As I said its not St Kildas fault but the management at TBO ( and the idiots at the VFL who appear to be only AFL stooges!) and before somebody says a stand alone club cannot be viable and successful then look no further than Port this year who are hopfully heading for the flag and I tell you what I will be there cheering them on!.

BTW reading through your supporters forums its looks like a fair majority are whingeing about the SFC alingement and would prefer you bite the bullet and field your own reserves team.
