Sounds more like you're comparing the stars to the current crop, bit criminal to leave Gibbo and Birch out of that list if soYeah it's not our leadership group - but it's our senior crop (although I forgot about Frawley), those we're relying on now that there's no Hodge/Mitchell/Lewis/Buddy/Cyril/Roughead.
I meant all this as more an aside/casual observation rather than a position I hold strongly and will defend to the death.
Buddy was a focal point but he wasn't a leader, same with Cyril
McEvoy has played 100 games for the Hawks now, he's pretty senior, played in two flags and is definitely a leader in actions as well as name
Mitchell is a big hole, reckon he'd have been in the leadership group without the injury.
We don't have the same top end talent or leaders, you don't just replace guys like we had though
