Did you see the amount of people saying that we should consider Goddard as a free agent to give us experience? Like there was a decent number of posters that floated that idea.
It's called the bible effect, tell one bullsh*t story to someone dumb enough to believe it. That person tells another, and another until there is enough people who believe it, that it must be true. Now everyone talks about it :D

Even then I didn't fall for the Goddard rumors, because there is something near non existent with todays society, its called common sense. Goddad playing for us makes next to zero sense, to old, to slow, no longer the impact player he was, and a gap fill for a year on a team trying to develop a long term list? Yeah doesn't make sense to me.

i heard Bevo will offer Akermanis a contract to play again for the doggies. Better rumour than the Goddard one.

Lukas Webb still in a neckbrace. Not looking great.
The medical report the club put out on November 19 said he'd be re-assessed in 8 weeks, which meant mid-January. I wouldn't expect any change until then but if he's still wearing it in a month's time you'd think it hasn't healed as hoped and he's a long shot to make it back in any capacity.

If Webb does not make it back, does that mean he would retire/end up on the long term injury list and we can rookie a former AFL player?

It would indeed, a pity Carlton appear to have nabbed Gibbons.

Got to feel for Webb, a rotten way for your career to end

You are only as good as your last game.

Rank 374- Fergus Greene 33 Points *** Rank 352 Jayden Short 42 Points
Rank 379- Patrick Lipinski 29 Points *** Rank 360 David Astbury 38 Points
Rank 391- Dale Morris 21 Points *** Rank 393- Nathan Broad 16 Points

Western Bulldogs- 1,776 Points *** Richmond- 1,450 Points

Richmond- 15 Goals, 8 Behinds = 98 Defeated Western Bulldogs 14 Goals, 11 Behinds = 95 ???

Players 1 to 6 = 776 Points *** Players 1 to 6 = 592 Points
Players 7 to 12 = 497 Points *** Players 7 to 12 = 414 Points
Players 13 to 18 = 378 Points *** Players 13 to 18 = 303 Points
Players 19 to 22 = 125 Points *** Players 19 to 22 = 141 Points

On the Yojimbo scoring system of blind statistical analysis where I use the amount of players who
score 100 Points ( 5 to 3 ) in the Dogs favour and the first team to fall to the 70 point mark or
below, Tigers (Brandon Ellis) Dogs (Easton Wood), I declare the Bulldogs the winners of this game
by between 25 and 35 Points. Now we must start to win these games and definitely not lose them
when faced with such statistical dominance, our possession heat map must look like a tadpole
with it's head firmly in the back half of the ground and it's tail just creeping into the forward fifty.
