When comparing against other teams I think we should.
Honestly those 3 are the only ones that really matter, for most arguments the only timeline that really should matter would be post 2000 or post 1990.
Although I'm certainly not an advocate for forgetting ones history.
It’s a difficult one, if you’re drawing on 30 years of history to try and prove your arigmrnt then it’s only fair they can increase that to 50 to retort. Typically I try to just keep most discussions to AFL premierships. For one I’ve been alive the whole era and there seems to be less influence of chance in winning flags.
Just started a Jarryd Roughead is a shit captain thread in the bay. Get this vibe on there he is a protected species. Will be interesting to see if it's deleted or it sparks genuine outrage rather than just usual banter.
Will be beautiful seeing the reaction editing his name out with Joel Selwoods. A captain who has taken his team to finals countlessly and can play football.
I’m often surprised that the deluded opposition supporters really doesn’t grasp that we had a complete rebuild with very low picks compaired to other teams in a similar time period. I think we have done well to remain in contention while rebuilding from one of the club’s best team list in its history.
I guess they only look at the poor final displays and won’t look at the bigger picture.
