- AFL Club
Well they can’t just stop looking out for you can they? Otherwise that would look odd. I fail to believe that the umpiring could be that bad and one sided in a GF. Can Bulldogs supporters even acknowledge how bad it was? Even with the AFL issuing an apology are you prepared to see that the umpiring was terrible?Right… so now that the AFL have orchestrated a Premiership for us, which included possibly the most unbelievable month of footy seen for some time… what’s their MO now as clearly their pro Bulldog stance is still on show?? One more premiership? 5 more? 10? I’m hoping they win us another 5, I’d be happy with that.
How do you explain the AFL commissioner stating he wanted a Bulldogs premiership? And then that very year they get one. It’s pathetic. The AFL should’ve sacked Newbold on the spot for those comments. Newbold is completely anti Sydney and Anti GWS. He has been an open critic of draft concessions etc and seems to think equalisation should apply irrespective of any circumstance. You can not say you want a team to win the flag and then that team does under very odd circumstances. The Bulldogs have not had one top 4 finish under Beverage and have had the rub of the green in every final they’ve played.
They played a month of great footy, but really got looked after on GF day. The WB are such a broad based club that encompasses everything WESTERN in Victoria. Particularly metro and outer metro Melbourne. With such a huge growth corridor in the west there is a big opportunity to capture massive market share.
The Bulldogs are the pin up club for growth.
