Yesterday it was very apparent that without the Dorkers being in the alignment with Peel that they would be in serious trouble.

If in a non alignment era they would have difficulty fielding a reserves team given that the quality of players in the reserves who would have to play League were obviously made up of a cousin or two or just bloke from the local league not required by there team.

It was and is quite sad that the WAFC and the Liberal State government have pumped so much money into the region via Peel that the issue still exists and doesn't seem to be likely to be resolved in the near future.

Yes my club has been in an alignment but it has always been apparent that we could be competitive in the league and reserves leagues even in this time.

It begs the question what would happen if the Freo bail and want their own reserves side in the VFL

It would go to crap Grump, John Ditch and his band of followers only were after the short term fix of chasing the elusive premiership by the alignment...

Have a look at the 2016 season and Swans' results. When we played Peel in Mandurah Peel had 3 WA domiciled AFL players in that team.

Peel were crap before the alignment and will be when it finishes which to me proves that bringing them into the WAFL was a mistake to start with.

They have been very weak despite having talent go through the club:

Chris Waterman
Geoff Miles
Peter German
Bill M
Gary Hocking
Scott Simister
Daniel Wells
Haydn B
Shane Yarren
Alistair Picket
Hilderbrandt
Mauribto?
Steve Bazzo?

I guess it illustrates the degree to which the younger players do leave for university or jobs?

add in Naughton, BOB,ROB, Harley Bennell, Blayne Wilson and Ben Howlett as well AR......Peel had a load of reps in the 18s and 16s squad as well this year.....just a depth issue I guess.....

The argument that is often thrown up abt Mandurah and thus Peel is 'they leave for uni and jobs', if that is the case explain to me why EF, EP and other teams with far more distant recruitment zones can keep a fair proportion of their players at the clubs. I believe that it is a cultural thing abt the club and pretty well reflects Mandurah as a whole ( no spelling mistake).
