Naugton gets talked up so much, wouldn't swap him for any of ours. Overrated 

Beauty is in the eye... Imagine having him AND Ben Brown... that would be amazing.

No thanks.  Can't stand the bloke.  Hardly any tricks unless it's down his throat

IMO carltons ball use is poor

They lack defensive running, but with more preseasons for their young players - this will come 

And their backline is leaky - weitering is a gun but i don't rate their other KPD's and i dont think their rebounders are very accountable defensively

Not Umpire bashing but normally free kicks even themselves out over the year. The dogs just get more than their fair share week after week. Either they are doing something right or something is very very wrong.

Yes but let's not that get in a good way of a rosy red and blue glasses..

If Naughton was in Melbourne jumper and making this kind of impact at the Dees people like ucanchoose would be hailing him the next Wayne Carey..

Naughton is a star and would make our forward line significantly better in a whole new level. He actually would have someone else to take the heat off him like Ben Brown unlike at the Dogs where he's copping the best defender each week and having zero support from the other forwards.

Kicked 47 goals as a 21 year old last year and has already kicked 22. He's well on his way to kicking 50 plus this year.

Can't handle opposite views old dazzle.    He only scores goals when it's down his throat.  System player for a team that chips it around.    He wouldn't be any good in our system of bombing it long and locking it in.   Back to the blocklist.  Can't understand why you came off it

Surely you’re having a laugh! The guy is a star and I for one, would love to have him in our forward line.

Entitled to have  an opinion.   7 possessions and didn't look like getting near it in 2 of 3 quarters so far.

Down his throat? Come on, you’re coming across as someone who’s never seen him play for more than five minutes. 
 

He launches at everything and often plucks it when he has no right to. 
A fair chunk of this seasons goals have come from crumbing, quite a few on his opposite foot. 
His biggest knock is set shot accuracy. Again he’s 22 and improving. 
 

Every single team in the comp would pay overs to get him.

There's having views then there's this garbage there you tend to spew out half the time.

Aaron Naughton being overrated is up there being one of the funniest things I've read on here.

They are better than us of 2018...

The area of weakness I see with them is their mids are not yet fully committed to the defensive part of the game and when they break even or worse on contested ball it puts the defence under a lot of pressure and they concede scores.

We bat a lot deeper...but don't underrate them.

Rubbish. 

10 rounds in we were 7-3, had scored 100 more points and conceded 100 fewer points. That's including beltings against Hawthorn and Richmond. 

They are definitely similar to our 2018 but suggesting they are already better isn't accurate.

They're good but not better.

Mate your garbage about Melksham getting picked in the teams thread was the biggest pile of garbage ever written on this site

If every team would pay it, it’s not overs, it’s just his worth.

(Because I know what you were looking for was some pedant to nitpick on a single line of your post 😁)

Two of his three goals today have been under pressure, one a snapped goal and the other a strong contested mark. If he’d kicked a little straighter, he’d have five goals. When he’s not marking, he’s getting the ball to ground for the crumbers.

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
