Thanks for the well reasoned respose. The older players have come back in superb nick and Ive followed training closely. I think they'll get through OK. To have them taking the spoon however seems to me absurd when you look at Adelaide and Essendon.Ziebell & Cunnington's bodies look close to cooked if last season was anything to go by, not sure how confident I'd be on them seeing out an entire season.
Tarrant is 31, Goldstein 32. Both have been good players, but are right in the frame for when players start to struggle to back up week after week. Maybe they'll have another good year in them, but the cupboard is pretty bare if they don't.
I think North's youth are good, but there's still a heavy reliance on the few guys at the end of their careers to hold it together.
