Stevo deserves a mention in our Bulldogs Media Thread. Just on 7 News. He's been crook with a bowel cancer scare. Results after surgery all good - thankfully.

Get well soon Stevo! We need you to keep reporting on those Doggies for us.

And as if he couldn't get any better as a bloke, he's a vego too! :thumbsu:
And stay off social media, the keyboard flogs will be giving him an even harder time than they usually do.

Can someone post a link to Bevo's brief.

I don't seem to get the emails anymore from the Club, even though they send me all the membership ticket emails each week 🤷‍♂️

Mark Robinson’s likes and dislikes from Round 7

DISLIKES


6. Where to for Jason Johannisen?

The Norm Smith medallist has lost his half-back flank and is trying to forge a forward-wing career. It is with mixed results. He’s kicked one goal this season and against the rampaging Tigers on Friday night, recorded just 20 SuperCoach points from five disposals, 102m gained and two score involvements. Overall this season, Johannisen has spent just 31 per cent of game time in defence, 19 per cent as a wingman and 50 per cent forward. Just 11 possessions in the game previous would suggest a) his new roles are a work in progress, or b) his position in the team is shaky at this point.

How hard is it for media to do some actual research, when a site like afltables.com actually presents part of your article for you?

Bob Rose was coach of Collingwood from 1972 to 1975. Robert Rose played for Collingwood from 1970 to 1972, then followed his father to WO in 1973. So FOOTSCRAY coach Bob Rose coached against his son Robert playing for COLLINGWOOD.

The article gets it wrong three times. (I didn't have to check afltables to know, but it took less than 10secs to show the relevant data via Google and both their names.) Pedantic maybe, but an example of a wider malaise in football media.

This has already been posted in the Marra thread but I think it requires discussion here too. The issue is not Marra but the media. Rage inducing hatchet job by Purple with horrible ulterior motives.

My issue is not the criticism of our club or it’s people (happy for anyone to legitimately question any aspect of the Bulldogs) but the fact that this story’s sole purpose is to invent controversy. It hopes to be so inflammatory and inaccurate that Bevo or the club feel they must respond. Purple knows that this story has the capacity to undermine the very responsible thing the club is doing by not rushing him into the side and it has the potential rial to sow seeds of doubt in the young man’s mind.

The one benefit/funny part of the story is that it is a crystal clear sign that Purple thinks we are the real deal and he hates it. He wasn’t very interested in smear campaigns when we were down the last few years but boy oh boy does he hate to see us succeed.

What a parasite Barrett is. Fancy doing a character assassination on an 18 year old just to score points on Bevo. ******* pathetic.
Clearly Barrett intent on driving yet another number one pick into the depths of depression and early retirement. Well done, hero, you really are a piece of s***.

Bevo responds and the flog will say something like ’it (Bevo’s criticism) was just uncalled for, I’m just doing my job’. F***wit.

Maybe it needs someone else from the club to respond instead of Bevo. Chris Grant comes to mind.
