If you told me in 2014/15 that Kamden McIntosh and Kane Lambert were going to be the Nucleus of a Multiple premiership side I would have laughed so hard you would have had to pick me up off the floor. - There is nothing to say that Harry Morrison, Jack Scrimshaw, CJ , The Worpedo and Will Day can't be the nucleus of a premiership team in the future. And while Downie Maginess and DGB won't help us to the finals in the next two years in 3-4 they might well be - so we got to let them develop and with good people around them like a Brownlow Medallist and a player who has fought back from a crippling injury - guys with work ethic on the track regardless of how we are doing on the field. Picks and players are only part of the formula to a flag - the rest is coaching and development AND THAT TAKES TIME - we've been on a slow methodical rebuild since 2019 and that was put back a year with Covid - I know fans are one eyed but to think you can just win a flag every year is delusional at bestNot sure if your trolling or not, but we are currently no where close to reaching finals next year and contending the following. We need to go to the draft for the next 2/3 years aggresively and be accepting of a few years of being bottom 4. Downie, Maginess and DGB will not help us rise to a finals run next year, will need some patience and development.
