I've been watching properly since about 2000, and this is clearly the best team I've seen in terms of personnel. The only competition would be the 08-10 teams and 15-16 teams. Those teams were all good but pretty significantly flawed in various areas, and we were always trying to plug holes with people like Aker and Barry Hall. Our midfield is pretty much 100% guns now (with middling rucks), our forwardline is a mix of quality talls and middling smalls, and our defense is very well stocked for our gamestyle (ie. a couple of decent/good big defensive players mixed with a plethora of gun intercept/rebound defenders). On top of that we have multiple players who are potentially top 10 players in the comp (Bont, Macrae, Treloar, Bailey Dale. This is the best Bulldogs team ever and we should enjoy it while it lasts.
