Clubs with brightest future; short and long term.

Well, who do you have your money on dominating over the next decade or so.

2005+

St Kilda have a preety scary list. So many good player so young. There is no real reason they can dominate the next decade. If they can keep that list together they will win cups.

Geelong were only a tall forward away from the Grannie last year. They pinched Ottens from us but lost Benny Graham to the NFL side 'Jets'. Thanks to the 2001 draft the build there team around they also have a very strong squad with the likes of Abeltt, Bartel, Ling etc. all getting towards their prime.

I also reckon Melbourne have some good young player. Freo have finshed there youth program (Carr for 3 picks) and are ready to reep the rewards.

3-5+ years (long term)

Richmond and Hawks both have long term programs in place with early picks this year and most proalbey the new few.

Good topic.

Short/Medium-term: St. Kilda, Geelong, WCE, Port Adelaide
Long term: Too hard to say with salary caps and drafts and stuff.

Who'd have thought that Brisbane would win three straight flags as early as 2001-2003 after finishing wooden spooners in 1998?

i think that grand final loss could break the lions actually. its physically impossible to play the game they play constantly for 5 seasons.

brightest future? obviously st.kilda, geelong...i think carlton should get a mention. i believe in two seasons, they will start making the 8 consistantly.

Carltone in all seriousness should be up there with Saints and Geelong now. If the didnt lose those 1st 2 picks (Wells and Goodard) they'd have a awsome side.

I still reckon Lins will win next year. Not over their best yet.

hard to say, obviouslyu geelong and the saints look the goods, port look like they have an endless supply of quality young players coming thru, they have been one of the best sides for the last 3 seasons, and now that they fiunally got rid of that choker tag, wouldnt surprise me to see them backup again next season.


too early to tell with richmond and hawlks although with plouygh and miller there iv got no doubt we'll start climnbing the ladder before too long.\

dockers and eagles especially the eagles are coming up, id put them with the saints and the handbags with freo just below bc of the fact they are still a bit soft, maybe thatll change with a couple of quality hard ball winners coming into the squad..

also doggies are well on their way to becoming a very good side, some real talent and class down at footscray town, watch out for them they are primed!!

Id say Lions, Saints, Cats and Port are the bst 4 clubs going around atm.

Cats and Saints will dominate the next 5 years you'd think. Very good lists, still young. Im actully, against commen beleif going to back the Lions for the flag in 2005. Its hard to see Port containing their strength for the next handful of years. Surly they will have to go though a re-building period some time soon.

Freo has stoped going for youth and ready for succes, thus the Carr trade. Judd look very good, their midfeild scarys me.

Doggies, Tigers and Hawks looks the major clubs which will dominate in the long term. From a totally bias point of view we have a sme great kids. Future is bright

Plough will make a hell of a difference he's the proven man and what a signing he will be.

as long as soemthing stupid doesnt happen aith the elcetion and we lose Miller then i'l say yeh I agree, i reckon were gonna be big improvers over the next few seasons with a brilliant coach and footy department not to mention some kids that arent half bad

I agree though about alot of members not liking Casey,To me he doesn't seem so Influential.But I don't know him like the Richmons people I guess.Miller seems to have some sought of aura about him.

Id be sad to lose Miller he's done some very good things. To get Jackson and Hartigan 55 and 70, in hindsite both top 10 (easily) picks was a wonderful achivment.

However, im not a Casey fan. Wouldn't fase me to see him go. Fcking Essendon supporter.

Yeah I agree sincerely when you have someone who is a non Richmond man in the top job makes it a little hard to digest.How do the Tiger fans feel about him?

not too much i can tell you lol the only thing that could save him is the fact miller has aligned himself with him, but at the same time he could also be the rock tied to millers leg that sinks miller.... really hope that dosnt happen as miller is the best thing thats happened to this club in 20odd yrs. since he came 2 yrs agao hes turned us into a club that gets what it wants, ok ok we have been dismal with results and financially but in terms of picking a target ie Nathan Brown, Kane Johnson and Terry Wallace he gets his man... and he almost got us dean soloman as well

for that reason as well as the fact something tells me casey aint all bad i hope casey gets re-elected as prez

To be Saint Kilda like; be shit for 3/4 year and then reek the benifits for the next decade or so - and Saint will dominate football for the next 5-10 years with a very good young lst. Richmond needs 1 more year of a influx of good kids imo.

14th or lower.

2006 onwards should be very exicting times at Tiger Land
