    My father grew up in Canterbury and went to Canterbury boys high. He was a life long Bulldogs supporter. He was the only person in my life that really loved football and the Bulldogs club, because sadly, none of my friends are really into football. (fucking ridiculous right?)
    Sadly, my dad suddenly became ill and passed away in early December, and I will dearly miss him! I will miss those chats we would have after a win or a loss, a new signing, or about our seasons chances.
    Given the letter that Dean Pay has penned to us fans recently, I have been thinking of my old man a lot, and I know how proud he would be of where our club is at right now.
    We really are on the way up, and it looks to have been a great choice by our club members to vote in the new board including Lynn and Chris Anderson, and a great choice by these leaders to bring Dean Pay back to the club as coach.
    I'm not sharing this story to invite your sympathies, I'm writing this story because like my father, I am also very proud of where our club is at right now.
    I also want to thank you all for being a part of this forum as it is now the only place where I can share my love and passion for our great club.

    GO THE DOGGIES!!!!!

    I’m happy Klemmer got to join a stable club that’s building for the finals and has stability both on and off the field, especially with a strong final third of the season. Well done champ, you finished with the same amount of wins and losses as the Bulldogs side you bailed on.

    Hey Klem,

    Just a quick note in case you happen to read this forum. You seemed like such a passionate Bulldog. You spoke to the media about how you grew up with Bulldogs bedsheets, how you were the ultimate fan....if there's any truth at all to these romanticised stories, how can you even think of doing this to your fans during such a time?

    You could play a major role in rebuilding this great club. You have the opportunity to go down as a true legend of the club you supported as a kid. Instead it appears you are intent on going down as just another jerk who sold out your childhood dreams to the highest bidder. Bulldogs fans have a hard enough time with the media and game's administration dumping on the club without supposedly passionate players doing it. This club is so much greater than the Newcastle Knights....has a prouder and much longer history and a much greater record of success. So many legends have played for this club. Legends who understood and loved the club's culture. You could be one of them. Why would you throw that away in pursuit of a quick buck?

    Is that kid who slept with Bulldogs bedsheets still inside you somewhere? Does a part of you still love this club? If so, I'd suggest you sack your dodgy manager and focus on reconnecting with what is really important. Too many people have thrown away the pure, straightforward and honest ideals of youth in favour of the more shallow and less spiritually fulfilling adult pastime of dollar chasing. Don't become one of those jerks. Money won't bring you happiness and you can't take it with you when you leave this earth. Better to leave a legacy than to accumulate wealth you can't take with you. We really wanted to believe you were a throwback. A true, tough as nuts Bulldog who genuinely loved this club.

    Let's be honest, financially, you're doing ok. The club has looked after you, the fans love you...or did. So, is that kid who loved the bulldogs still inside you? Can that pure love you had for this club still be preserved? We are going through a very tough time as a club and need strong people to dig us out of it. Those who do so will rightly become legends.....but they do need to be strong, so if that doesn't sound like you, don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.

    Yours sincerely,

    A disappointed and jaded fan

    Just like to publicly thank Adam & Kerrod for dropping by the Prince of Wales Hospital today to visit my son who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.
    The boys could not have been more of a pleasure to be around, even bought some Oportos for my son.
    The boys are very confident of a big year and they are looking forward to surprising a few of the doubters.
    Can’t thank Adam & Kerrod enough and a big thanks to Deanno who organised the visit for us...Dubbo lad through & through.

    I've followed the Bulldogs since 1962; that is 55 seasons. And bloody hell, there have been plenty of lows but they were eclipsed by the highs. It was reading Papa Het's post: "A large proportion of once loyal fans have given up on the team". Having read it through I thought "Yeah. Fuck it. I'm outta here".

    There are two reasons for this.

    The first is that I'm totally fed up with the ad nauseam display of tonight's error ridden incompetence from a side coached by a one syllable moron, plus the low life refereeing. The second is that I have terminal cancer and according to the experts I'll be at the checkout around October this year.

    Its not the cancer I'm bitching about, I've copped that sweet. But Geez, I need more than the Bulldogs to bring positives into my life and I discovered that its not the Aussie cricket team either. Maybe I'll take on my wife at ping pong.

    So farewell and all the best to you Kennelers who are left. We may yet see a modern miracle with the Bulldogs raising the Provan-Summons Trophy on Grand Final day.:grinning:

    Hi everyone out there in Bulldog land,

    Just letting everyone know that Izzy Forreal passed away at 12:33pm today after a five and a half year battle with cancer. He is laying down in his bulldog t-shirt ready for his final match.

    The one thing that put a smile on his face, regardless of the suffering was when he heard that Des Hasler was terminated as coach and he was e-static when he learned that Dean Pay became the new head coach.

    I will post funeral arrangement as soon as the are confirmed.

    Thank-you.

    Replying to @MCarayannis
    Hard to know where to tread at Belmore with so many of Dessie’s landmines yet to explode. The former coach, chairman and CEO should front a joint media conference to explain to the fans how they so badly botched it. They’ll carry the baggage of this Bulldogs disaster forever.

    Sorry but the only person(s) shitting on the club is individuals like yourself, who have been giving it all year to Turvey & Baa for voicing their opinions in regards to Hasler.

    To think that a Dogs "supporter" would stick by a Manly scumbag who does not give a flying fuck about Canterbury, over club legends who have bled for this great club over the decades is absolutely shameful, disgraceful and disrespectful.

    Talking shit is individuals like yourself who have no pride and respect for Canterbury

    Sad to see the big fella go, but what a way to leave the club.

    Has been superb in past few months.

    Farewell Greg Eastwood..... NSW Cup Premier AND State Champion !!

    Lol, typical Kennel. You can't worship these players and then dump them at the first sign of trouble. They're rookies and these mistakes are going to happen, having so many rookies around each other and a poor coach leading them also makes things harder. Not saying these players don't have a lot to work on as they are clearly lacking in a lot of areas, but these things were known when they were first selected.

    There’s a strict process for this as follows;

    @bradyk identifies the player value, and subsequent overs we must pay in order to lure him to our club.

    @AlzzBulldog accepts the monumental figure put forward, and demands that the club must pay said figure, no questions asked. Threatens that Board, Coach, Recruitment staff and admin lady must all be sacked if we don’t sign him.

    @bradtalo pens an articulate letter to Andrew Hill explaining why this signing is imperative, despite its threat of crippling our salary cap for the next 5 years. Proceeds to create dozens of identical threads on The Kennel to support his case, often in the incorrect subforum.

    @Bulldogs09 drafts 10000 paragraphs of material slandering the Board and Coach in readiness for the signing not eventuating. Once Xerri is announced as signed to the Roosters, bores the Kennel to tears with said repetitive paragraphs of dribble.

    We bag the player when they do bad so they deserve credit when they do good.

    My cousin has a brain tumor and Reynolds and Morris went to his house and spent time with him. Great touch by the players.
