This is the best construction site wall I've ever seen.
All your basketball talk is on our huge basketball forum.
Not for us, but I did have a bit of pressure for Richmond to lose Friday evening as I mentioned in the Non-Bulldog Footy Talk- Bulldogs Only thread:No dietary pressure either.
Since we're not playing this weekend, I decided to have an unlucky meal for the Tigers. I ordered for the first time from Menulog. (Took forever for delivery.) Since I was cleaned out yesterday for the up-the-butt exam, I had plenty of spare space in my intestines and ordered a Whopper Hunger Tamers Box
1 x Whopper, 1 x BBQ Cheeseburger, 1 x Large Thick Cut Chips, 3 x 100% Chicken Breast Nuggets and 1 x Large Drink. I now feel ill so hope that rubs off on Richmond tonight.
Our replacement game. Means both teams members get in for free, expecting a bigger crowd.Am flying over to the round 14 game v Collingwood. Just went to get tickets did not realise apparently certain games are called dynamic games and the prices are increased meaning a $12 increase on what I paid last time and also you can’t use a concession in certain areas.
How long has this been happening for?
Seems purely a cash grab and also no wonder we don’t get the expected crowds at bigger games if the prices are jacked up.
Wouldn’t have thought us against anyone would be a dynamic game worthy of prices being increased.
You haven't learned how to spell Gillon yet?
Coulda gone with the Merge Oakley into Outer Space...
Awesome-wonder if you can choose a numberTo be worn round 17 vs Melbourne
Thanks.Just listened to the podcast. Nice work, mate. And i like how Bob touched on a few things that we have been mentioned on here regarding the carlton game and Ryan Garner getting a game.
I think this deserves a thread of it's own. Puts a lot of the horrible things people say into perspective. Hope he gets well. Seems like a ripper bloke.Never a good thing.
Lin Jong to take mental health break

Lin Jong will take a short break from playing football while he manages his mental health.
Western Bulldogs utility Lin Jong will take a short break from playing football while he manages his mental health.
Lin will remain in the Bulldogs’ training program, without playing competitively during the next undetermined period of time.
“I felt it was important to be honest about how I have been feeling recently, and the Club has been an amazing support for me, along with my family and friends,” Jong said.
“The Club allowed me to spend a bit of time away from training, but I wanted to be around my team-mates and the football staff, so we decided I would continue to be part of the program without playing games for the time being.
“The environment at the Bulldogs allows players to be themselves and communicate openly, so I felt comfortable about speaking up.”
Jong has endured a torrid run with injuries over the last few seasons, which has robbed him of on-field continuity, including two broken collarbones, a fractured jaw and an ACL injury. This year alone he has dealt with a torn hamstring and a ruptured appendix.
“We applaud Lin for feeling brave and comfortable enough to speak up about managing his mental health. We have created a culture at the Bulldogs which encourages our players to confront any issues they might be dealing with, instead of suffering in silence,” said Bulldogs Director of Football, Chris Grant.
“Our duty is to ensure the health of our players is our priority, and Lin will be given the time and care he needs to work through this period. We are pleased that he wants to remain in our program and continue training.”
“Clearly, improving the impact of mental health amongst players is a responsibility the whole football industry shares. It’s encouraging to see players from many clubs having the courage to publicly address the issue so we can all continue to best support our players.”
He's a ripping bloke for sure.I think this deserves a thread of it's own. Puts a lot of the horrible things people say into perspective. Hope he gets well. Seems like a ripper bloke.
Agree on all counts. Deserved a thread. Can see why its here though.He's a ripping bloke for sure.
Feel free to copy and paste the above and start a new thread.
Edit: Im not really interested in creating a thread that will inevitably descend into being used as a issue to point at perceived issues inside the club, like has already begun in the other thread discussing this news.
