    Fishing in the Aegean all next September.

    Hi all, I haven't posted much because this season has confirmed my worst fears - we aren't able to cope with the limelight. Last year in November/December i started a thread about the pre-season and how worried i was about the casual nature of everything the bulldogs seemed to be doing after a...

Don't get me wrong, let the good times roll We all knew deep down that when it happens it will be magical and boy oh boy was it that It was pure Hollywood, half way into the last quarter it was a movie Monumental 4 wins in one finals series on and off airplanes the previous 2 grand...

    Listen to Bevo Adelaide, you bunch of Buffoons

    To officially, on club level, question the integrity of the umpiring and silently condone a social media and now mainstream media speculation fest is a "disgusting act", and opens up a Pandora's box of ugly consequences. When you cultivate the idea among supporters that what is unfolding may be...

    Im in love with an awkward sorta guy

    Luke Beveridge Seriously i love watching coaches' press conferences. From the overly defensive and emotional brood of the Scot Brothers to the arrogant agressive style of Ross "the boss" Lyon. Hirdy's naughty boy apologetic style is only matched by Dimmas constant questioning of why...

    The Man with The Plan

    After watching the preseason compo live, watching replays and pressers i would like to start a thread on our game plan which is being developed by our new coach. It seems we are not as static as we were under the previous coach and have completely changed our defensive positioning thanks to...

    The Coach who can change Bulldog History - Juke Beveridge

    In the course of roughly 115 years of vfl/afl over 50 men have coached a premiership none of them would have been able to emulate what the current Western Bulldogs Coach did in the VAFA. And don't underestimate what he has already achieved at AFL Level. VAFA DV3 premiership - head coach VAFA...

    Goodbye to a great club President

    Saddened to hear of Dr Tony Cape's passing. He was the bridge between the old and new for alot of us older supporters. His administration and guidance almost pinched a GF birth in 1985, a great bulldog and great guy. RIP

    Is there room for a "slow" wallis?

    After the game looking at the midfield options which we are developing it seems to me that today Wallis may have been a hiderance rather than an asset. He seems to have hit a wall lately running up and down on the same spot. He is 3 preseasons in. My concern is - Is there some other role he...

    Have we stumbled on genius?

    Could Bmac is his laconic "good people are quality assets" way have discovered a kick ass forward defensive unit in Addison? The more i see the replay of his game against the Swans the more i seem to like him playing there. Wat u think guys? I hope he persists with Addison till the end of season...

    Thats the gameplan ......

    Lots of soul searching over the last 4 weeks on "what is our gameplan" , well it seems to me the richmond game answered that question. Attack attack attack attack the ball and run, we have been consistently good over the last 3 years because we have the best attacking 22 in the league. Its...

    Time to say we were wrong

    I hammered him, called for his head. Some wanted to lynch him. I told myself i hated him but in reflection i hated losing to Showboat Hird. What it was, was that we made this media made nothing into a mega coach and his bunch of average players into 22 guns. But then all the results fell our way...

    the stats that count

Average losing margin 2.4goals thats insane - even when we are shiite we are a chance of winning! Average winning margin...
