    I did wonder what prompted you to put "Get _ucked Ross" on the scoreboard last year.

    You can't complain about an early start - you're going pretty early with details for a March praccy match. :D

    If you're still online, thoughts on Orr as a rookie?

    (a comment on Rigga wouldn't go astray either)

    Sorry - no - just would've been funny if zeb had overdone the wild turkey and let on what he really thought about the state of the alignment.

    Thought you guys on here might be interested to read article i wrote about the alignment between the Saints & Zebras. Click the link for full article (bit big to copy all across here) I interviews long time Zebs supporters John Lysaght and in the 2nd part ill be doing later on im interviewing Sandy President Gerry Ryan.

    Gives a bit of insight into what they think of the alignment under Ross Lyon and what they think moving forward.

    Love your work AT.

    It makes me wonder how long Ross Lyon had a move like this in plan. I'm thinking a lot sooner than mid 2011. It's mind blowing his complete lack of interest in the list beyond the top 25 during his time. Premiership tilt or not, it's inexcusable.

    Cheers mate.

    Yes it really does make you wonder what he was thinking. Yet he still claims he can develop players!!

    Personally (as a long time Zebs fan aswell) i couldnt see the alignment surviving next year if Ross had stayed at St Kilda. But as John said, the money factor probably would have made it have to stay. But no doubt there's no way it would have survived past the current contract.

    somehwere it ws mentioned that when Andy Lovell was the coach of Sandy, and he reported to the saints, that the Sandy players were quite unhappy with those Saints players playing for Sandringham as they were treated better then the sandy players. If it was true that the sandy players either were unahppy or went to their Board complaining. what would be the difference this year?

    1. Lyon isn't coach.

    2. Players are expected to train with Sandringham.

    3. St Kilda's made an effort to include Zeb players in pre-season training.

    4. The club has acknowledged the issues with the alignment.

    5. McPhee has experience in an alignment situation.

    6. There will be more consistency in the message / game plan with Hudson being the forwards coach and Graham defensive coach (for Sandringham).

    7. There was talk of fielding a stand alone team previously. Now there's talk of extending the alignment.

    That was posted on Saintsational...it's a load of crap...a poster there who has been obviously against the alignment and who was super confident that it was ending after the 2011 season suddenly realized that it was continuing and maybe continuing beyond 2014..now of course this doesn't suit this posters argument, so he makes up some story about Sandy players going to the board complaining....absolute BOLLOCKS...and it's a mystery as to why he would write that sort of crap...but...everyone is different and has a different way of getting their message....like don't let the facts get in the way of a good story...

    the problems with forums like this one and saintsational is you don't know who to believe. i would have thought what was said sounded truthful. which was why i asked the question here in the hope that you Zebraman would asnwer as you would know more about sandythen us and who ever wrote it on saintsatonal.

    So thanks for setting me straight.

    Simple rule.

    It was from plugger66. If it's from him or BigMart, ignore it. They're just trying to both pretend they have inside knowledge about how the club is run, and that they and the players are best mates. They have been shown to be frauds countless times.

    Whilst I know BF is special and all, as zebraman had refuted the rumour on SS, I'm not sure why it would be repeated on here (in the hope that zebraman would refute it again!)

    It's different anyways now - let's see how the alignment goes next year.

    Re: Review of St Kilda drafting 2006 - present

    I noticed that the Zebs have signed Myke Cook, who was delisted by the Crows after 4 years on the list. Pick 38 in 2007 (noting Chris Mayne at #40 and Jack Steven at #42). Originally from A2R's zone (St Bedes).

    The playing list for the Zebras in 2012 is out - find it here.

    Notice a lot of youth coming in from the Sandy Dragons. Looks like our sense of list rejuvination has rubbed off on the Zebs as well.

    It is looking a bit dicey for Darch in the VFL this year.

    The Zebs have lost Brett Dore and James Orr - both handy types in the ruck.

    Not sure they have signed any mature rucks.

    Unless Jones and Sikora (who both played reserves last year) improve, there is going to be some pressure on the St Kilda listed guys to play a fair bit in the middle. I'm not sure Lever and Staley would be ready to go up against experienced VFL ruckmen.
