Anyone saying we needed to rebuild one of the youngest premiership teams in history is simply an excuse and not the reality
Stringer, Dalhaus, Roughhead got ahead of themselves. 2016 was built on the 'all in' principle. Bev inherited a team, wants his own, can't blame him for that, he wants a dynasty, not just a Flag. He sees the Stringer-Dalhaus cancer, cuts it out. The team was young enough anyway. Defendable decisions.

Yet to see anyone say that or use the word rebuild, adjust because of injury, form, retirements and rule changes yes definitely,
but as I said in the other thread had Dickson and Stringer kept returning 106 Goals a season I doubt Bevo changes anything.

And as I said you are wrong and assuming

I showed you as a team we had next to no change in points scored for or against on 15 and 16 UNTIL we changed and ruined that.

but you keep making it about two blokes not the entire team

Garbage

Show me a coach in any sport in history that had systematically pulled apart both Personal and system as much as we did in one off season?

clearly changes could have been made but not a Complete overhaul on a winning system

And how is that dynasty going?
One of the most ridiculous arguments is that Bev inherited the team and wanted his own!!!! Really? He is that arrogant he can’t accept winning unless it’s “his” team??? So for Bevs ego we have been sh*te for 4 years and you can’t blame him for that? Okay

Garbage is a bit strong. Who knows what's happening in Bev's mind. I think he was intending a dynasty, who wouldn't have been after that GF with such a young team ? It's one thing to translate a magical September into the Premiership, another to found a Hawthornesque dynasty. Not yet but don't give up hope.

Actually you included finals into calculations for Points For and Points Against to which I said "Take your crayons and go away if
you can't handle the truth". Thanks for destroying my Luck Beveridge tribute thread by the way and I used Dickson and Stringer
because they were examples of the few pure forwards we had on our list at that point in time.

sorry I wasn’t aware kicking more points than the opposition regardless how it was done wasnt important, Braun’s must have confused me that the bigger score wins

My error 🤦🏼‍♂️
