You are missing my point.
Of course we will continue to add talent, that happens every year. What I am saying is don't dismiss the talent we have just because you don't have the foresight to see what they can become. Every rebuilding list has an element of risk to it's list but I believe we are in a fortunate position because the top end talent we have is in critical ares where it is far harder to identify and fill. An example of these players are Joe, Hurley, Fantasia, Merrett, McGrath and quite a few more.
Our foundations in my personal opinion are as strong as any and we still have talent on our list that is not even any where near its end development.
People always want to name big players and have all of these shiny toys that they think win flags but in my opinion whats more important is a gameplan that is not the same as everyone else's and a development plan that can mold players into for-filling the roles within that structure. Most people didn't consider Doggies list last year any where near it but they managed to win it on the back of a solid gameplan and more importantly a deep roster of very accomplished foot soldiers. I don't think they have the most talented list but I do believe they had a lot of other elements that added up to "team success".
It's my opinion that we have quite a few of the important pieces in place and I also believe that the rest will fall into place very fast.
You name guys like Jobe, Hocking, Myers and Stanton as guys hard to replace but every team has to replace there stars eventually and I think we are in a very good place to do that.
You may not be able see whats coming but I will stand by what I believe and I think that we are much closer to success than what you can imagine! If a star midfielder was to be added then of course that would be great. But if it's not I still believe that we have enough depth that we can start to have a crack at finals from next year and compete flags following that. And I haven't dismissed finals this year either but I believe that because the club is clearly using this as development year, then that would be a bonus.
