Sorry i just dont see the backbone in the current suns to produce that. Ironically their coach would be the most likely. One nice aspect of the 2008 grand final was stuart dews retro footy making a mockery of the modern zoning that both hawthorn and geelong were employing that dayAbsolutely. It would be child’s play for them.
Current state league teams have players dedicating similar time to 80s VFL players, but they’ve got better quality training plans and superior game plans. Current state league teams would generally beat 80s VFL teams.
But no state league team would get within 10 goals of any AFL team.
That takes absolutely nothing away from sides of that era as they were putting out the absolute best that was possible at the time, as AFL teams are now, but now the absolute best is light years ahead.
I get the fitness and tactics comparison, comparing an average team from both eras is fairly clear. but to chose one of the worst clubs going around now to compare with an all time great team is just asking for embarrassment. Once the ‘surprise’ element is taken out of it, its not a great comparison
