    Autopsy Well that was ordinary....disappointing loss to Hawks. - Rd 16, 2018

    Let's look at Richmond and see what they are doing compared to us. 1. They have players who are super quick over 10 metres (or know where to go to, instinctively) which enables them to impact when they don't have the ball and release effectively when they do have it. A preseason of drills? The...

    What They're Saying - The Bulldogs Media Thread - Part 2

    If other clubs are willing to pay significantly more than we are, and we lowball him below what he would consider he is worth, then surely he'll be gone. Why would he stay if we don't rate him? I'd say he is angling for a better deal from us, hence his comments about wanting to stay. What...

    Opinion Lukey D - Where do you stand?

    Keep provided we think he can fully recover. If there are doubts, then no. Love his endeavour, but for it to be productive, he has to be largely injury free.

    Strategy Trade and List management (Add your rumour to the simmering stew that is the post season. Edition.)

    I'd go for Carlton's Ist pick in a strong draft if it was believed there is a once in a lifetime 200 game champion there. And to do that we'd have to give up something big. Much as I like him, Tom Boyd might be that player. Maybe we would have to offer more than one player, but I am of the firm...

    What They're Saying - The Bulldogs Media Thread - Part 2

    I actually liked the camera work and close ups. It added variety to the narrative. For the most part it worked for me, apart from the occasional Wow from Bob which bordered on cringe. The stories were interesting, the repartee great and I found myself smiling at the good nature of it all.

    Roberts and Jong for pick 13? If they are that good, we'd keep them.

    Analysis Changes for Round 10 (Collingwood)

    Schache just isn't ready. Golly, if you didn't like Dale's attack on the footy, you're not going to be well pleased with this guy. I'd leave him in the 2's for a sustained period - to give him a thorough grounding in defensive aspects of the game and how to stay involved in the game, and to...

    Autopsy Adelaide 63 dftd Dogs 26

    Adelaide have developed the technique of effective short kicks out of congestion. They take less time to dispose of the ball but do it accurately over 10 metres or so, often deliberately with a side kick to a player in the open. The time from pick up (hand to foot) was super quick and accurate...

    2nds Port Melbourne vs Footscray sat 12

    Some head scratching coaching for mine. Why was Nahas allowed to play a kick behind the play all day on his own? He set up so much play. Why was another Port player allowed to run from behind when they took a mark, with none of our players anywhere near them? Why were they able to double up...

    Round 8 vs Brisbane - IN's and OUT's

    No change to the ruck. Boyd to ruck for as much as he can, English to play forward. However if Boyd's fitness is not up to major duties in the ruck, or English is in need of the week off, then Trengove to come in and share the ruck work with Boyd. I like big Tom but I can't see how the Lions...

    Western Bulldogs and their partnership with Ballarat a success

    Yes, I agree. I used to be involved in minor league football and Sat avo was an institution where people such as whole families, farmers etc came together for the social event as much as the football and netball. In a small town where there isn't much else to do, the weekend footy was a meeting...
