The three interstate clubs who are currently rebuilding.

Adelaide haven't made finals since 2017 and are into their 4th season.
Fremantle haven't made finals since 2015 and are into their 6th season.
Gold Coast have never made finals and are into their 11th season.

Who's future prospects are the brightest and why?

Gold Coast IF they keep the vast majority of their best young talent there. Especially Ben King.

Because they have the most of the really high quality young talent.

Big “if” though.

Then Freo. Won’t help at all if they lose Cerra though. Unless they replace him with Bolton.

you want freo to rot dont you? lol

Adam Cerra is only one player in our best 22.....

Losing Lachie Neale hurts. Ed Langdon was a solid outside mid doing well for the demons.

As for Brad Hill...... you really want to talk about that trade again and want me to remind you what freo got in return? ;)

Freo will be the bolter as they pick up Bolton, retain Cerra and pick up Max King cheap

The talent of the Suns is undeniable so you pick them, but we all know they have other issues that need fixing and I think they're starting to make inroads next off season will be telling for them.

Had the chance to pick up one of the king boys for pick 6 but used that to trade Hogan.

Saying that.... We had pick 6 and at future 3rd traded to Port and got picks 11, 23, 31 and 49. Freo got hogan and Lobb as KPFs traded in for that 2018 trade period.

I mean freo using their 1st rounder in 2010 for Jayden Pitt over Jack Darling was bad. You can make an argument on freo not using one of their 1st rounders to get mitch georgiades, who was Ports pick 18 in the 2019 draft.

Then again..... Pick 7 was Caleb serong and that was a good pick. Pick 8 was hayden young, who I have hope for and pick 9 was Liam Henry but that technically doesnt count as he is an Nex generation academy player and freo had to trade in for points.

Talent of the young kids in order goes
1- Gold coast
2- Fremantle
3- Adelaide

But feel like Adelaide have the better experienced players (Walker, Sloane, Laird etc).
you forgot 2 factors.....

1. How many years do they have left for Walker, Sloane and Tom Lynch and Andrew Mckay?

2. How many years left are for Mundy, Fyfe and walters? etc

Crows have the best coach by far and will have better player development.
Based on what?

this is coming from the same poster that said certain teams didnt tank enough. Yet as a crows fan, you were happy getting pick 1.

Crows overall was solid from 1991-2012, rarely did they finish bottom 4 or even got top 10 picks often.
