It sounds like the same story we have heard every year. The thing is we just picked up Cameron, we have three good picks in this year's draft and a bunch of young blokes in the VFL who look to step up. Not all of them will come good but some will.Still had a very strong spine who were 25-27 years of age and proven champions.
While the golden era were long in the tooth, Hawkins, Selwood, Taylor were right in their prime and good for another 5 years.
Right now as we speak, who of all the players aged 27 and under are exceptional champions capable of picking up the slack?
It's a different age demographic now. The cliff is facing us right in the face.
Unless we somehow get a Merrett and a H.Andrews in the next year or two, we won't stay aloft for long at all.
And then we have our system.
