I never said it is stuffing the development, I am saying it stalls it.I don’t agree that playing young players on the flanks is is stuffing their development.
Petracca spent his first 4 playing years up forward but broke out age 24, Gary Ablett jnr spent his first 5 years in the forward line before breaking out at 24. Carlton has a lot of talent at 22 and under, Teague has few years of developing these guys at the right pace before you can write these guys off. I don’t think sacrificing their development.
I also never wrote anyone off but there is no way Teague gets "a few years" to develop them. They've been rebuilding since 2015. They need to compete seriously for finals in 2021 or he'll be under pressure. There is no way he got the job with the freedom to bounce around in the bottom half for 2-3 years.
