    Talented outside back Dallin Watene-Zelezniak has signed an 18 month contract with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and will join the club immediately.

    The 23 year-old Kiwi International, who has represented his country on eleven occasions, will add a major attacking force to the Bulldogs' backline.

    Watene-Zelezniak made his NRL debut for Penrith in 2014 and scored 41 tries in his 106 appearances for the club.

    Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was delighted with the signing of the talented outside back.

    "The acquisition of Dallin is fantastic news for the club and the vision we have going forward.

    Not only is Dallin a great player but he is a quality person and a leader. As the current Kiwi captain he provides us with both class and proven ability and he will be a major addition to our backline.

    On the back of Joe Stimson from the Storm agreeing to terms last week, Dallin’s signing is another significant step in the right direction for the club and we welcome Dallin and his family to Belmore and look forward to our Members and fans getting the chance to watch him play."

    I've been a harsh critic at times during the year but it's been a very good end to the year, much better than last year.

    Are we going to be a top 4 team next year, probably not but top 8 is within reach. You only need to win half your games to be there.

    For the moment enough with the negative threads about how shit next year will be, let's hope the boys have a great off season, come back fit and firing and there's an addition or two to the squad.

    Well done to all those who made their debuts for us and hopefully they're better for it next year.

    Go Dogs!

    can anybody tell me the last time you saw a captain stand up for one of his players the way Jacko did? With the exception of Cam Smith trying the sweep a spine breaker under the rug, I can’t recall ever a captain going at it with the other team’s grub. So to this I say, we salute you Jacko, the heart of a lion and of the club.

    PAY BASHERS, Meaney bashers, Tolman bashers, Elliott bashers, Holland bashers, JMK bashers, Lewis bashers, Board bashers. Etc etc. You know who you are. And the time has come for you all to zip up, withdraw your e-pitchforks and jump on the wagon.

    THE DOGS OF WAR ARE BACK.

    I am formally requesting that the negativity and division amongst this forum officially desists, and that we all unite.

    Everything that the staff and players have been busting ass in building towards is coming to fruition. If you still can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel by now then you are blind.

    We’re tough, we’re determined, and we’ve got plenty of heart. We’re back baby.

    GET ON THE WAGON. ITS TIME TO UNITE.

    Former Canterbury captain James Graham has slammed the "outrage culture" that had crept into the game after being left stunned by the sensational fallout to the Bulldogs' Mad Monday celebrations.

    The NRL hit the Bulldogs with a record $250,000 fine on Thursday before the club fined four players - Adam Elliott, Marcelo Montoya, Asipeli Fine and Zac Woolford - a combined $70,000.

    [​IMG]
    Hit hard: Canterbury's Adam Elliott was fined $25,000 over his conduct on Mad Monday.

    Photo: AAP
    The sanctions came two days after images of Bulldogs players partying at the Harbour View Hotel in The Rocks were published by News Corp.

    Elliott, who was fined $25,000, has found himself at the centre of the controversy after being photographed dancing nude on a table at the pub.

    Graham has been taken aback by the firestorm around his former club's Mad Monday festivities and said he had taken time out from St George Illawarra's finals campaign to contact good friend and former teammate Elliott.


    "I'm not a fan of the outrage culture, I'm not a fan of the telescopic lenses, I'm not a fan of some of the cheap media that has been around it," Graham said.

    "There have been some stories I've read ... it's just so cheap. People need to be careful about what they want and where this sport is going.

    "When you talk about having access to players for media and for fans, do you think this will help?"

    Graham issued a defence of 23-year-old second-rower Elliott, saying the "past few days don't define who he is".

    "He has done so much for the community. He studied for however many years at uni while trying to make it as an NRL player. That's better than what I have done," Graham said.


    "The stuff he does for his [autistic] brother, the stuff he does in the greater community .... and the very fact people criticised him by saying he was due to go in for surgery. They don't realise he's been in pain and been putting off that surgery for three months just to get through the season.

    "Yet people want to personally attack him for what you could argue was over-indulging. It's also a strange one in terms of why Canterbury's Mad Monday was the only one photographed. There were seven other teams.

    "I reckon if you went to every club's Mad Monday you would find something for the outraged mob to be outraged about. Some of the people in the outrage culture don't understand team dynamics and the different people within the team, the personality types and traits, and what makes it click."

    NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said the proposed six-figure penalty reflected the seriousness of the behaviour and the damage which had been caused to the game.

    Yet the governing body did nothing to come down on Cronulla pair Josh Dugan and Andrew Fifita a couple of weeks earlier after they embarrassed the game with a foul-mouthed podcast, where they attacked a senior journalist, and Fifita even poked fun at deliberately spilling a row of supporters' beers at a Melbourne game.


    Elliott only a couple of weeks ago praised Graham for standing by him when he was trying to break into first grade and recalled how the English prop walked into former coach Des Hasler's office and demanded he play.

    While Elliott's nudity in a public bar and the graphic images of players vomiting on the street left the game with a black eye in week one of the semi-finals, Graham pointed out that the Bulldogs were meant to be enjoying a private party.

    It has also been suggested it would have been almost impossible to see the players on the third floor of the pub from the street.

    "I read an article where a journalist was saying if he had gone in there he'd be intimidated, but he wouldn't have been allowed in. It was a private party,'' Graham said.

    "Go somewhere else. If I walked into a pub and it was full of opposing fans from a different club, I'd just walk out, especially if I was getting abuse or felt uneasy. There are plenty of pubs in Sydney."

    As the NRL season draws to a close, I wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of the board to everyone in the Bulldogs family for your continued support and commitment throughout 2018.

    We understand the results are not where we want them to be, but we accept that this is part of the process that will lead to us getting back on track. As a proud club with an enviable record of success, especially since the seventies, seasons like this one are difficult for everyone.

    This makes us all the more grateful for your support.

    We appreciate our members and fans who continue to buy tickets, merchandise and show their loyalty; our sponsors who continue to stand by the club, our staff who have to back up week after week in some tough conditions; our players who have never once shirked the load, and towards the end of the season delighted us all, both with their play and their attitude; the families of our players and staff who give plenty to help make the Bulldogs strong. Plus, most importantly, we acknowledge our CEO Andrew Hill and Head Coach Dean Pay, who have led from the front, making the hard decisions, lifting morale and bringing the club together.

    We are excited about what lies ahead for the Bulldogs. Our SG Ball team were runners up this season, our Flegg and ISP teams are through to the finals, our Tarsha Gale and Harvey Norman Premiership women's teams represented the club with great pride and enthusiasm, whilst our Harold Matthews squad were semi-finalists. These are part of many positive steps that will help lay a strong foundation for sustained success again at our club.

    Thanks to everyone for helping to restore respect to the Bulldogs and for supporting us in tough times. We value that more than anything.

    Lynne Anderson

    Chair – Bulldogs Football Club Board

    Gotta say that I am pretty proud of our guys. Anyone that thinks we are a top 8 team are dreaming BUT when you actually accept that fact you can see other things.

    The effort and resilience from our guys was awesome. Yes we fuked up heaps of times BUT we also didn't take shite from Souths. Lewis single handledly took on Burgess and got on top of him. That means we have shown Storm and Souths who we are so far this season and I have no doubt both of the mentioned teams would say they were sore the next day!

    If we can take about 8 - 10 guys from this team in a couple of years time and add some class then I tell you we are looking pretty good. At the moment we are learning grit and toughness and that can't be coached, it has to be experienced! That is the stuff that is needed to win GF's.

    We also showed signs (as a young team) of being able to change plans and go to a niggle and slowdown…...which did work. We have showed the comp blueprints on how to beat the Storm and Souths this year!

    The things we are learning at the moment are priceless and I am proud of the guys today!

    I just wanted to acknowledge Adam Elliott.. he may not be the most gifted or skillful but hes always in there , giving it his all with tough runs or making tackles..

    Hes alwayds in the face off the opposition, plays like a real bulldog..

    His enthusiasm & energy is a big positive, I get the feeling hes the sort of player his teammates like playing alongside. .

    Hasler is one slimy arrogant muthafucker.

    The wanker has no respect for fans whatsoever.

    He was asked why he persisted with Tony Williams and the arrogant prick just smirked and offered no explanation.

    No issues with Mbye & Lichaa - they are improving and there is nothing wrong with our style of play. Too much drop ball and uncompleted sets dont allow us to execute our attacking style.

    Lichaa is here to stay along with our style of play

    Blah blah blah blah blah.....Bullshit

    This was a PR stunt handpicking a large amount of Dib puppets and questions.

    I was against the boycott, but after witnessing that cunt Hasler tonight smirking and smoke coming out of his ears when asked about his love child Lichaa & Williams, he along with Dib deserve every single backlash from all circles of media and fans.

    The cunt doesnt give two shits about the club and i will persist on him leaving, on a daily basis until the cunt is gone along with Dibshit.

    Over the weekend we saw the Bulldogs win the ISP but The Daily Telegraph failed to report this great victory. On the opposite end The Sydney Morning Herald report across two pages not just the win but a marriage proposal by Renouf To'omaga. A feel good story to go along with a great victory. The Daily Telegraph did not think that any of this was worthy of a write up.

    What shameful and unprofessional journalism. We all know why this is the case but I will say this to Phil Rothfield, Paul Kent and Co. Hang your heads in shame.

    BTW I never buy the Telegraph, it's free at Macca's and not worthy of paying a cent for.

    UP UP THE BULLDOGS!!

    Word's got out that the Blues didn't pick JJ, so right now Josh would be thinking how the hell can he work so hard and be on the receiving end of nothing.
    No luck at the Bulldogs and no luck with Origin Selection.

    So for Josh, keep your chin up buddy as your efforts don't go unnoticed by True Bulldogs fans.
    We love what you do for us every week and your non selection for origin is only the Blues Biggest Loss.
    They have rocks in their head thinking that they have selected someone better than you to do what you previously did for them.

    Love your work mate, I'm glad your in my team.

    On behalf of my family, I wish to thank every one for their heart felt condolences and best wishes. I have been lucky for a number of years now to have been a member here on the kennel and in more ways than one the kennel is my second family.

    Mum past away from cancer, she was a proud Bulldog supporter, a fighter right up until the end. I think she passed the way she wanted at home surrounded by her children and grand children, May she rest in peace.

    I haven't watched a Dogs game since she passed and I don't post as much as I use to but I do still rely upon you guys to keep me up to date with all things Bulldogs related. We may share different points of view / opinions at times but when all is said and done, we just want what is best for our team. I know mum will be cheering the Dogs on looking down from heaven.Once again guys from the bottom of my heart thank you and God bless.

    players come and go... as do coaches... and administrators... and journalists... the only long term loyal people in the game are the fans

    fans that watched a premiership winning team's vital organs lost to bitter rivals during the Super League War... fans that saw poor management overpay for a side that could have been salary cap compliant in 2002 and have the season wiped out and the taint of cheating forever associated with the club... fans that remained loyal in the wake of unfounded sexual assault allegations in 2004 that could not get past the Director of Public Prosecutions to prosecute but not before the Police, the game, rivals such as Lockyer, and rival fans defamed everything Bulldogs related and for years afterwards (eg. muckrakers like Rebecca Wilson)… fans that watched SBW play the victim, refer to himself as cattle, insinuate that Steve Folkes was a racist, Dr Hugh Hazard a liar, and literally run away in the middle of the night and then be lectured by the likes of Matty Johns to just get over it - and a f*%# you too... fans that watched a generational squad of players that could have dominated for years in 2004 (seriously, look at the names and ages of our 2004 squad) systematically taken apart thru inept management, a far too restrictive salary cap and rivals looking to revitalise their own clubs and now have to hear about war chests and the game having to step in to keep local boys with their local clubs regardless of their own cap restraints... fans lambasted by talking heads about the behaviour of their players on a Mad Monday celebration but who then turn a blind eye to serious misdemeanours by rival players

    a serious question... how many NRL fans have gone thru similar trials as 'Dogs fans in more recent times? Cronulla maybe... anyone else?

    and yet, we are still here... do not confuse demanding with disloyal

    I think Tolman deserves a special mention and a thread for today's mammoth effort.

    47 tackles and 160 meters and ran with purpose not just dying in the ass as we have seen from Tolman over the years.

    Tolman was the best on field for us and really showed what a valuable player he really is for us.

    The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have agreed to part company with Head Coach Des Hasler effective immediately.

    The club informed Hasler that they felt that it was in the best interests of both parties if the club moved forward under the direction of another Head Coach.

    Hasler, has been at the Bulldogs since 2012 and coached them for six seasons.

    Bulldogs Chairman Ray Dib spoke about the decision:

    “Today, I informed Des Hasler and his management of our decision to pursue a new Head Coach for our Club, effective immediately.

    The heads of agreement reached with Des Hasler for an extension of his contract were non-binding and a decision has been made not to renew his contract for next year.

    "These types of conversations are never easy, especially when they involve people we respect personally and professionally, however, the Club believes the decision to change our football leadership was absolutely necessary.

    “The Club will now begin its search for a new Head Coach and will provide further information once that process has been completed.”
