    Means a fair bit. Madness to leave Sandy and go to a club that folded a year ago. Complete madness. If we do leave sandy we will go on our own. Take it to the bank. And a part time ruck coach at Frankston compared to a full time employee at Sandy. Seems sandy are a fair way ahead.

    Odd comment, not sure what folding has to do with anything. Don't think it guarantees folding a second time, especially when backed by an AFL club. And lets disregard that the club want to maintain a presence in Frankston.

    Ok I will disregard that. Strange but I think folding is rather important. You want to go to Frangga, I want to go on our own or stay put.

    Heard the pres himself tell supporters they are very mindful of keeping a presence in Frankston. They're worried as soon as they move out of Seaford that Hawthorn will move in. Apparently the area has a long running history between saints and Hawthorn fighting over the area.

    Makes sense from that point of view. Doesn't it.

    The Moorabin ground has a heap of stakeholders too who will all train there and I guess play games there. We probably need a second oval and playing at Franskston will make players keener to get back to senior footy when they can't get coffee. If we could do what the Hawks did with Box Hill where they are really just a Hawks reserve team with extra players I'd be happy.

    No it doesn't if we can go on our own.

    Perfect. Now lets get on our own in the main stuff. Otherwise stick with what we know.

    That history goes back to zoning.
    We had Ballarat, Hawks had the peninsula.
    Leigh Matthews may have been a Saint, Plugger not.
    Then zoning was mothballed but the Hawks had put down roots by that time.

    You might know this, but I’m a Sandy supporter.
    I get a sense our relationship with the Saints has a limited future, irrespective of Hamill’s appointment.
    I do not believe Sandy’s performance this year was helped by the Saints involvement, we could and should have played better and gone closer to finals.
    Similarly as a Saints supporter, I would say that Sandy’s performance was not up to scratch for an AFL affiliate.
    Something has to give: this no AFL Development League is going to cause major problems for AFL affiliates at VFL level.
    Someone is going to have to bite the bullet because this cannot continue.
    Saints future is not with Frankston; they’re simply a less wealthy and resourced version of Sandringham.
    And Sandringham’s future is not with St Kilda if it wants to retain its history, independence and survive.
    It’s taken some time for me to get to this point but if Sandy is to survive, it needs to reign in its ambition. It cannot survive in the VFL. It does not have the resources to be competitive. Even Port Melbourne struggles.
    I can’t see a solution: maybe Amateurs?
    Saints will be fine: a standalone team out of Moorabbin (supported by the Southern League as the feeder comp) with the resources of an AFL club as backing.

    We intially had the peninsula in the lead up to 1966.
    IIRC The hawks were struggling so it was decided to give the area to hawks

    Didn’t Scott Burns score a gig at Hawthorn?
    Stand to be corrected on that.
