Unfortunately, can't disagree with that. That's probably what shits me the most. Been a very frustrating season.None of the current cores will see a premiership, imo. Thoroughly mediocre teams, but I do agree Port probably have the best young talent. I'd have to give all three a big fail for this year, even if either Adelaide side get into the 8, unless they pull off something miraculous. I'd go as far to say they're the teams furthest away from a flag aside from Gold Coast.
Agreed. Think the Dockers definitely have the right balance of talent to go for a flag the soonest. Having a couple of elite guys for their position in Fyfe and Walters is oh so important, a bit like what Richmond had in the years before going for their flag (Rance, Riewoldt, Martin, Cotchin).Freo have some elite players e.g. Fyfe and Walters in their prime, quality, 24 year old book ends yet to enter their prime in Hogan and Pearce, some handy role players e.g. Lobb, Wilson and Matera and a collection of nice, young talent e.g. Darcy, Brayshaw, Cerra, Logue, Tucker plus they'll add another top 10 pick this year and Liam Henry through the NGA academy. I think their list is well placed to turn things around quickly. They need to keep stock piling quality youth. I think they could use a new coach with some fresh idea's though to help get the best out of this young group.
Well, Ross is gone. Would have said Port before (and still will) but Freo now back in the picture. Then a long way back to the Crows, whose list is headed for the cliff.Suns the only side further away from a flag than the crows.
Port closest by miles.
Freo will contest once Ross is gone.
Maybe a new recruitment manager to get a decent list would help adelaide, Jack Graham played a blinder for the tiges last week he was home grown talent with his old man playing SANFL footyAll three teams seem happy to just make up the numbers year after year. Port have at least started rejuvenating their list and giving games to the kids. They need to move Hinkley on and maybe move on from Koch.
Freo look disinterested half the time, but can beat anyone on their day. Some early picks are underachieving, but will probably improve with a new coach.
Our club is run by delusional flogs who still think it's 2017. Will be at least five years and two sacked coaches before we play finals again.
