    Late to the party but love the Naughton news. Gotta pay market and you build teams around key forwards. The prospect of a long term with Marra is tremendously exciting. In my memory it would be the first long term pairing of genuinely star key forwards we have ever had.

    Fairly certain that Simon Beasley and Kelvin Templeton, both century goal kickers, played one season together in early 80's.

    Had a feeling that might have been the case. But I am still scarred by the lack of a partner in crime for Chris Grant his entire career.
    Carey had Longmire (even Breidis!). Hird had Lucas. Oh well....

    They played above a dozen games together in 1982. KT was on and out of the team with lingering problems after his reco. Over the season they kicked about 100 goals between them with Beasley kicking 82 and Templeton just over 20

    SEN: SYDNEY ADMIT THEY ?HAD A CRACK? AT NAUGHTON

    Sydney Swans general manager of list strategy Kinnear Beatson admits the Swans had a crack at luring Western Bulldogs forward Aaron Naughton to the harbour city.

    Naughton recently signed on at the Whitten Oval on an eight-year extension through to the end of 2032. That deal was signed off the back of intense rival interest from the Swans among other clubs.

    Reports following Naughton?s re-signing suggested Sydney tabled a deal worth more than $11 million over 10 years, and Beatson did concede the Swans certainly ?had a go? at recruiting the 23-year-old.

    While they missed out on Naughton, Beatson said the Swans simply had to have a look at bringing a player of his calibre into the club.
    Dang it! Sydney had really big plan this trade period.

    Update 12/Oct: Sarah Olle and Josh Gabelich on Trade Radio reported Swans offered Naughton a 10y contract offer and forced our hands with an 8y one.
