Crows have been better than us for the best part of the last 10 years.
In that time they’ve had 6 finals series (soon to be 7), if you go back further they have been a regular finals fixture for a fair amount of time.
They’ve lost significant players to retirement such as Goodwin, McLeod, Edwards and Burton, then lost quality players in their prime such as Davis, Gunston, Bock, Tippett and Dangerfield.
Changed coaches for various reasons several times.
Still yet to win a flag.
We have so far to go it isn’t funny.
