    Naughton will thrive in any position. The idea of where he delivers the best team impact is a good question, because he's just so good.
    If Schache continues his rate of improvement, and Bruce slots in like we're hoping, there is less of a burden on Naughton to be the saviour in our forward line...particularly if Lewis Young plays a role over the first month when Naughton isn't available.

    Playing Young forward as 3rd banana also has the added benefit of being able to throw him into the ruck where he actually looks relatively proficient without throwing our structure out of whack.

    Naughton & Keath would be a formidable key defensive combo, and would allow the likes of Crozier and Cordy to really play to their strengths.

    I love Naughton flying for speccies up forward but I've always thought our team overall would be better served with him becoming the dominant backman in the league.

    And then throw Jamarra into the mix, and he'll be ready to take over as Bruce rides off into the sunset.

    So you could say I'm on team #LewyIsAForward
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Nah you guys are crazy.

    I've always wanted an elite key forward to play for us. Naughton looks like he could be that guy, and a really fun version at that. Screw whats better for the team, ive seen good key defenders before. Naughton stays forward please.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    He reminds me of Dean Kemp from West Coast a bit. Fearless, strong and skilled.

    I am with you on this, a key forward is worth their weight in gold. Anyone can play back.

    Besides, our defense was one of the best in the second half of last year, so no need to panic.

    Marley Williams given a 2 week suspension for his hit on Ed Richards. Seems a week light to me
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world for the better.

    If they want to cut this sort of thing out, then it should have been at minimum 4 weeks

    Love his aggression. He could turn into such a powerful mid that makes all the boys around him stand a foot taller

    Considering Ed will probably be nursing a concussion for a couple of weeks. They had a chance to stamp out that kind of cowardice early and they've bottled it.

    I think 3 weeks was the right mark and would have sent a strong message. I hope Ed is getting better

    Under the rules he should have got 2 weeks and thats exactly what he got so not much the review panel could of done.

    Agree the AFL needs to take the lead on this one as KINGGY said on SEN this morning.

    Agreed. 3 weeks is what I thought at the game and nothing changed that view as more angles were shown.

    Agree. Enough of a message early, and enough of a deterrent which they can be consistent with throughout the year. Couple of north mates were livid w the 2 weeks...

    Agree. A Jack Dyer saying was "Mugs to the backline". He also said "He's a good ordinary footballer." (about Carlton's Peter Bosustow)

    I think that is also the premise of Tom Hafey dragging Royce Hart out of the surf in preference to a back man (Tony Jewell I think)

    After Firrito's attempts to get in his face before the 1st bounce, he's rebounding off half back and goes to kick down the line.

    Bont smothers the ball out of bounds, eyeballs him with a massive grin on his face and then proceeds to remind him just how much of a hack he really is.

    Satisfying.

    Its rare that I jump out of my chair at home when I'm watching the football.

    When Hayden took THAT mark against Collingwood I pretty much lost my s***.

    He's an absolute gem and we got him for a bargain.
