Yes the Ching is back once again (for as long as we are playing).

In 2019, Marcus Bontempelli was victorious, preventing the Macrae 3peat, and Bailey Smith won the pups in his first year. In 2020, will we crown a new pups winner this year or will Bailey go bark to bark? Will the man, known as “The Bont” continue to hold off Macrae and Dunkley to go for the double? Hopefully the season goes long enough for us to find out.

As part of the BigFooty tradition for the Western Bulldogs forum we again continue with the Ching award, which you have the opportunity to vote for who you think were the best bulldogs players of the match for the week. The scoring for the Ching award is calculated on a weekly basis as an aggregate score over the season for which player accumulates the highest overall votes in the Senior and Pup category.

How the scoring works:

At the conclusion of each game a weekly Ching vote thread will be created and a call for votes for who you think were the better/best players on the day. Everyone can vote for the 2 categories of players that we have which are Seniors and Pups.

How do you vote?

Seniors
- your top 5 players for that game
5 (your BOG) -4 -3 -2 -1

Pups - your top 3 kids for that game

3 (your BOG pup)-2-1

What is a Senior player and what is a Pup player?

Seniors is anyone off of the list who played that day, Pups is restricted to voting for the junior players who are 21 or under at the start of the season. They can turn 22 during the season but must be 21 when it commences.

Each week the Ching vote thread will include the eligible Pup players for the game.

What is the "Ching" award?

William 'Ching' Harris



The redoubtable William 'Ching' Harris was one of the greatest defenders of his time, and gave Footscray service of the highest order for almost twenty years. Always impeccably turned out, Harris was a great favourite among the Tricolours' female supporters, with his Chinese moustache and fringe conveying just the right intimation of exotic intrigue, besides giving rise to the 'Ching' nickname.

Harris made his VFA debut with Footscray in 1896, the last season before the VFL schism. The following year he was joined on the last line of defence by the equally talented 'Paddy' Hinch, and over the course of the next dozen years the pair developed an acute mutual understanding, providing the Tricolours with the best defensive partnership in the Association in the process. The familiar sight of 'Ching' Harris careering out of the backlines while Hinch dropped back to provide cover was one of which the Footscray supporters never tired; neither did they mind it when Harris, as was his wont, elected to 'mix it' with the opposition - football, after all, was a man's game. Nevertheless, Harris sometimes took his liking for a stoush too far, and on one occasion in 1903 he ended up in court charged with assaulting a Richmond opponent. Two years later he was rubbed out for the entire season after repeatedly falling foul of the umpires.

Somewhat ironically, given the often acrimonious nature of his dealings with officialdom, William Harris maintained his involvement in football after the Great War by serving as a VFL goal umpire.

William ‘Ching’ Harris
Fullback who played nearly 300 games over a record 20 seasons, including five premierships.

Inducted: 2010
Games: 296+ (1896–1904, 1906–15) Goals: 32+
Premierships: 1898, 1899, 1900, 1908, 1913




Pioneers - Footscray-Western Bulldogs Hall of Fame

From the club’s beginnings and its first game in the VFA (1886), through nine VFA premierships and the establishment of the club’s red, white and blue colours and the hooped jumper, this era ended with the victory over Essendon in the 1924 Championship of Victoria game, paving the way for entry into the VFL.

Ching Harris was inducted as a member of the Thirteen ‘Pioneers’ which were inducted at the inaugural Hall of Fame in 2010, for contributions made from the club’s inception to the end of its time in the VFA.

In honor of William "Ching" Harris, we have dedicated the award in his name to Western Bulldogs players since 2002

The “Clay Smith”
The Clay Smith award is a new addition to the Ching this year. You may vote for one player each week who was the most courageous player of the week. This starts with Rd 2 and is calculated via a running total each week. You can only vote once each week and only for one player.
This award is to recognise a player that may not be the best player but the one who puts themselves in harms way or sacrifices their own game for the good of the team- not the one who is the first in to “fly the flag”.
