    We have to rectify it in 11 months. Morris and trade/retire Roberts (and pay his contract out if need be).

    Moving into 2019 with Trengove, Cordy, Adams, Collins & Naughton.

    I guarantee we have a player who rolls up the sleeves and comes to work each day.

    The playing positions will sort themselves out but Naughton will do what he can to make it.

    Do you think we are thinking of a different role for him, or just key back.

    I think he is a defender but he has footy smarts and could become a forward.

    Get behind him, he's got that winning attitude and focus.

    Some players start of pre AFL in one position then later transition to another position and become very successful there.

    Nope, never happens, I only remember Brian Harris the AA key forward

    Apparently Lloyd on 3AW having a go at him already about his kicking. The guy is such a goose to bag him already.

    Top 10 pick on a defender. When did we last do this? Good choice.

    Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs - Aaron Naughton

    Naughton is ours and as such I'll back him in, but i do find it odd given our problems both moving the ball into our forward line efficiently and kicking goals not to mention the loss of X factor in our forward line with Stringer's demise that we'd overlook Darcy Fogarty for a key defender with poor kicking skills.
    Having said that I hope Aaron has a wonderful career with us and I'll back him 100% to succeed.
