The sad thing is, realistically we'll have done well to get out of the bottom 5. If our kids show good signs and we finish 12th in 2019, i'd consider that a decent season with a goal of top 8 in 2020.I like the cutoff being pre-93/2011 draft (or equivalent) and floating, rather than excluding him now that he's hit 25. Yes, the 'youth' definition gets a bit muddy, but for mine it's more about the 'list within a list' coming through with the rebuild rather than purely looking at those in with sub-7 years experience.
Taking that into account, Fasolo misses out, but we've got a another couple of additions not really mentioned yet.
2011: Docherty, Bugg (GWS underage selection), Newman (2015 rookie draft)
2012: Plowman, McGovern (2014 draft)
2013: Cripps, Lang
2014: Pickett, Marchbank, Garlett, Goddard
2015: Curnow, Weitering, McKay, Kennedy, Cuningham, Silvagni, Owies (2018 rookie draft)
2016: Setterfield, Petrevski-Seton, Fisher, Macreadie, Polson, Williamson, Kerr, LeBois
2017: Dow, O'Brien, De Koning, Schumacher
2018: Walsh, Stocker, O'Dwyer, Silvagni
Incredibly that's 34 players... the remaining names being Simpson, Thomas, Murphy, Lobbe, Kreuzer, Curnow, Casboult, Jones, Phillips & Fasolo (in order of age).
Going to be interesting to watch these graphs track for the 2019 season, especially as more of our young guns approach the 40 game mark for the purpose of AFL player ratings.
If our oldies were even 2 years younger, and our kids since 2015 were 2 years older, we'd probably be in top 4 contention.
List management and age profiles do matter. Sadly something our previous regime had no idea about.
