2019.

2019 didn't lose a game when they had close to a full team.

2017 was good, but still a little scrappy and more reliant on pressure.

2019 still had good pressure, but was also a lot more composed and slick moving forward with the forward handball game worked out to the letter. General skills were also better with the introduction of some really polished users.

2019 also has much more versatility up front with Lynch + Riewoldt in tandem, and the ruck division is also a lot stronger with the addition of Soldo.

2017 also carried some battlers, while they performed their role, while 2019 replaced them with some really slick role players like Bolton, Stack, Baker, Pickett.

I had a look at the replay of 2017 GF. The backline was as solid as ever. Vlas and Houli were standout. Rance did some desperate deeds. Up forward Caddy and Towner played good games. Townsend just never found that form again. I think Caddys best position is in the forward line. I'd forgotten how well Ellis played, Kmac had a good quarter or 2. As did Broad. Lynch is a great player but his size meant a fwd line restructure. I don't think we are actually any better. Just different. It was also strange seeing Grigg, Rioli contesting the ruck. I love Ivan but the back up ruck to Nank spends a lot of time on the bench. Marlion and Shai are good players. But in our gameplan it's all sacrificial running.
Given the potential to implode under the pressure of a grand final, the first in 37 years. 2017 beats 2019

2019 side would win.
2017 side had some big wins after grinding down teams and were red hot in their intensity, but we had to adjust the game plan as sides learned how to deal with it. I think the '19 side would have the same advantage (knowing how to deal with the '17 tigers), and the touch more class would win out.

Also the '17 team may have seemed red hot, but don't forget the '19 team didn't lose a game after the bye. Just seemed to have the confidence and maturity to do what needed to be done when it needed to be done.

Just saw dreamtime 2017 replay on 7mate and we seemed so far off premiership glory. Elton, Menadue, Lloyd, Bolton and Short all played. Dominated forward half for little return. Cotch his typical hard, selfless self.

Even when decimated by injuries in 2019, the structure was more certain. And boy did our second tier lift. Leadership so much stronger in 2019. No one would have got near us that one day in Sept. 2017 a once in a lifetime wave. 2019 the return of the king.

I saw a bit of that game. I was surprised how well Elton played.

Bolton, Baker, Pickett over McIntosh, Townsend, Butler.
Love both teams.
Would be interested if other teams turned over 6 players when winning multiple premierships. Bloody impressive.
Hawks team b/n 2013 & 2015 had 5 or 6 changes.
I'm hoping Stack, Ross can become premiership players this year. And I feel that Higgins is a coach favourite and will play this year.

2019 easily, the talent is equal if not better, the ruck & forward lines are more balanced and Grimes is enough cover for Rance in defense, plus experience, experience, experience. I love 2017's team for breaking through but 2019's team is better.
