well the saints rebuild took 1-2 seasons more longer than originally planned.Well if Geelong win tomorrow I think that means we finish 5th, and if we didn't botch so many shots tonight and be robbed of a goal we did look to kick, we could have been top four this year- and that's despite the fact we were missing 3 of our most important players (Ryder, Gresham and Carlisle), plus another best 22 in Long, while Richmond were at full strength (?).
So it's not like we were miles off it.
Saying that, saints are primed for a good run of finals. They are capable of play finals for 3-6 years in a row depending form, the coach, the (age of the) players and Medical staff.
Saints are now a mid table side and like 6-8 other teams I can think of, will finish between 5th-12th next season.
