If JD, Raz or both leave, its time to put a broom through the playing list and do a hard reset. Even if they both stay, this is something that we should consider.
Our KPP under 30 next year will likely be Gown and BZT. Our rucks under 30 the untried Draper coming off a big knee. Our midfield still can’t go with the best teams. The list profile is one of the oldest in the league.
Realistically I think we are going to get worse before we get better. I’d be moving older players on just as Hawthorn has done with some of their aging stars.
It pains me to say this but right now we are further from a finals win than we have been for 10 years. In my opinion we should put our ego to one side, recognise where our list is at, and start a full re-build. Starting with this trade period and draft.
Is this peak gloomer or a realistic view of where our playing list is at?
