I don't recall anyone on this forum disagreeing with this logic.Yeah dunno if it’s been matched. For sure the most talented list in the history of the game imo better than the lions. But unfortunately that’s not enough praise for the people on here. I just think the systems today outweigh that, not allowed to have that opinion I guess without getting mauled, pretty sick.
If you took Richmond 2020 back to 2007 in a time machine to play the Geelong time of that time, yes the superior gameplan, fitness, etc. would see Richmond 2020 as the superior side.
As another poster said, the Carlton 2022 side would also have the Geelong 2007 team covered.
But you are unwilling or unable to compare the respective teams relative to their opposition at the time, in consideration of the level of professionalism, etc. at the time. That is the problem.
