next year is 21 years for both sides since they last played off against each other. who has got more upside in the short term or near future. for me it is carlton as they have some excellent young talent coming through that could take them there.

IMO Carlton has the better youth, but it doesn't count for much if you don't have the right person in charge to guide them.

Both Teague and Shaw are early in their coaching stints, how they develop as coach as much as the players they have will go a long way to who wins this contest.
Many teams have good young players.

If I had to bet id guess North.

These threads are up there with the worst on big footy.

It's either Carlton because they have used heaps of draft picks or North because Carlton have been at the bottom for ages.

The current list of both teams will likely not factor in to their next grand final appearance, especially when you consider the fact that they played in their last one 21 years ago. It's impossible to know.

I can see North making the finals on a regular basis but not really being a serious contender. That appears to be the case for the last 20 years and I don't think that's going to change any time soon.

Carlton could be looking at making grand finals in the next 3-4 years. A lot of that will depend on how they replace their aging stars who would either be retired or on their last legs ( Murphy, Simpson, Kreuzer etc). If they manage to get A grade players through trade or free agency they should be contending. If they are unable to then they would be a middle of the road side who may make finals but not a serious contender.

Surely you are trolling. Carlton’s list is good enough to contend for a top 8 spot next year, let alone in the next 10 years.

Regarding this thread, I am going with Carlton. I personally think it’s time that Carlton start contending again. They have the talent, they have a new coach and they have a decent gameplan. All they need now is the confidence to jump up into the top 4-8, and they should be doing this within the next 2 years in my opinion.

North Melbourne didn’t go through the traditional rebuild that Carlton did so it may take them a bit longer to get enough talent to make the Grand Final. However, North already have the confidence to make the 8 and contend unlike Carlton due to recent finals experience.

It’s really a battle of confidence vs talent here if any of them make the Grand Final in the next couple of years.

It changed for you guys & the doggies, why is North any different ?

They will make it the same year as the Northern Blues after they merge to make room for Tassie.

Or alternatively Carlton as they seem to be building a more balanced list and will replace their aging players better.
