Enraging and perplexing ruck infringement calls.....Other teams would repeatedly kick the whackiest most implausible goals, goals that wouldn't be believable even in the trashiest Hollywood plot lines. While we'd hit the post 4 times in a row, from dead in front.
    Chris Grant missing the Brownlow because of that *&%&%$# Ian Collins whom I still haven't forgiven .........
    That non entity Shane Woewoedin stealing the Brownlow from Westy with a truly average performance etc etc etc.
    And to top it all off we would just stink it up in the draft, year after year. And trade in goofballs like Kingsley Hunter and Aaron......umm I can't even be bothered remembering his second name.

    Now.......ever since Tom Boyd's big bomb in the grand final bounced through............. the kind of goal that NEVER bounces through for us, the cruel eye of ill fortune has swung it's evil, piercing, leering stare away from us. We are out of the shadow. We are walking in sunshine.

    NOW. We have the Saints taking Billings before Bont. (generally considered the number 1 pick if the draft were held again now)*
    *(I realise this was before the flag, but nevertheless, the tide must have been turning)

    NOW. We win the flag and end up with pick 19 as our first pick...........and we pick Tim English. I've looked at that draft year again. I wouldn't trade him right now for anyone picked before him.

    NOW. We have Bailey Smith landing with us at pick six (future drafts will revise him to be the number 1. Mark my words)

    NOW. We have J.U.H. Landing in our laps. Top 5??? At least????

    AND, of course the man in question Aaron Naughton......I mean.......will he be considered, in the future, to be the revised number 1 pick from his draft year.......... a once in a generation forward cunningly concealed in defenders clothing???
    I know I wouldn't trade him right now for anyone picked before him.

    The little wink after plucking another contested mark against the Tigers...... The death stare to that GWS pretty boy with the pink boots after humiliating him in a marking contest. He's fricken 19 years old!!!

    I am so excited about our crop of youngsters I just can't wait for the year to start.

    I just love his swagger. That wink was his arrival as a big time player.

    Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs - Aaron Naughton

    Yes there is some very good players for sure.
    But. Right now. You are sitting at the trade table. And player for player, would you swap Aaaron Naughton for any player in that draft.

    I don't think I would. I've done the same thing with Tim English, and Bailey Smith. I really wouldn't trade them for any player above them.

    Where would you rank him now? I think at least top 5

    Mind you Tim Kelly was taken at 24, and James Worpel at 45

    Agree, a good big man is like Gold, let alone a freak like Naughton and the potential of English. Love them both

As the video gets deeper into the season you can see his teammates getting more and more confident that he will win the ball in a marking contest At first they are stopping at the contest to help out but Aaron inevitably takes the mark and they are all just standing around with their hands on their hips or clapping. But as time wears on they all start running past the marking contest to create options totally confident Aaron will take the mark no matter how many opponents he has on him.

    He's like a Rievoldt clone that doesn't crack the sads and just stand around and blame the umpire if he loses a contest.

    If you do that draft again he and Kelly go pick 1 and 2 every single time. No one else even comes close to those two.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    And Kelly is the one who went home too. Them losing their player and ours staying just would not have ever happened in a month of sundays in the past.

    I had wraps on Stephenson, but it was "odds on" he wasn't going to make it to our pick.
    What a great pick, he really surprised me last season and hopefully he has a long successful career playing for us.

    Amazing to think many of us were hoping that the Bulldog-supporting Coffield dropped to our pick.
    I happily stand corrected.

    Yep, the St Kilda table must have been looking at us as if to say "Yesss, got him*!!!" in their best Bill Lawry voices when they got Coffield with the pick before ours.

    An Aaron Naughton altimeter would be more appropriate.

    I've always worn a watch. A few months back I broke my arm, had to have surgery to insert plates and the surgery caused nerve damage which has left some numbness in my forearm/wrist/hand/thumb (the surgeon assures me it will all repair itself with 12 months).

    Since then I can't stand to wear a watch. Hopefully when normal sensation returns I can wear one again.
