Oh no doubt but you could argue guy's like Sides and Howe will still be playing their best footy this year and next. After that who knows but unlikely, it's not the Pies window is not open it is but not as wide as the other 3 teams I've mentioned.They aren’t now certainly, but a lot of players fall off a cliff when they get to 30. Certainly not many play their best footy after their late 20s.
They might still be in the 22 a few more seasons but not necessarily delivering at the level they have the last few years.
Of course every now and then you get an evergreen but, for example, Ball, Didak, Cloke, Johnson, Jolly etc were all cooked in their early 30s.
