Agree DH, we need to question the quality of the Sandringham listed players.The long injury list at the saints has had a devastating effect on the Zebs. With over a dozen saints out most weeks, it is remarkable the seniors have done as well as they have and it is little wonder Sandy has been uncompetetive.
Senior listed players are vital to your VFL team's fortunes. It's hard to judge Hamill's ability to coach, given the cirumstances, although Satan's beady, red rimmed stare will be firmly fixed on the problem come the off season. I think Sammy might get the lemonade and sarse.
BPF is right. We need to solve this. A competitive VFL team is crucial in providing depth for the seniors through rapid development of younger players. Getting crushed week in, week out can't be good for that.
I don’t believe the quality we have there is comparable to the other AFL alignment teams as all the teams suffer injuries over the year.
And some sail on with minimal impact.
Given we own Sandringham now, I believe we need to look at the fundamental and core purpose for its existence.
I’d argue it’s no longer to win VFL games and premierships, which was it’s raison d’être, but now has morphed into development of AFL listed St Kilda players.
So the key issue is as you’ve stated: senior VFL listed players to provide structure and development depth, not the character of player that we currently have on the list.
