    Just got member email. He’s here till 2021 now




    MARSHALL-KING COMMITS TO THE BULLDOGS FOR A FURTHER TWO YEARS

    The Bulldogs have continued to build for the future by extending the contract of hooker Jeremy Marshall-King by a further two years, keeping him at Belmore until the end of the 2021 season.

    After moving to the Bulldogs from the Wests Tigers in 2018, Marshall-King has proved to be an ironman of the blue and white pack, playing in 23 NRL matches in each of the last two seasons, in addition to winning the 2019 Coaches Award.

    Having both started and come off the bench, the 23 year-old has impressed with his service from dummy half and his strong running game.

    Bulldogs Head Coach Dean Pay was pleased that the club had been able to extend Marshall-King's time at Belmore:

    "Jeremy is the sort of player that every club needs. He has really embraced the hooker's role and he has those qualities of toughness and determination that have really added to the side over the past two seasons.

    We believe that he has a great future in the game and that is based on the fact that he is continually looking to learn and improve all the time.

    As we continue to strengthen our squad, Jeremy's decision to extend his time with the Bulldogs is a major bonus for the club moving forward.

    while you are all celebrating the win , dont forget the special contributions to our win from our beloved Mbye.

    every cent in $175,000 was worth it , that was spent on Mbye this year.

    for all the rubbish i threw at him all these years, when infact now it is clear as day that what a valuable player you could have been , had your game not been killed by the imposter coach.

    I sincerely appologise.

    who else wants to join me.

    Foran is 10/10 for me this season... Its the wankers around him that don't know how to run lines or ruin his work in straightening attack lines by stopping, propping and passing then running towards the sideline.

    Bulldogs hooker Michael Lichaa says playing State of Origin for NSW would be just the tonic he needs to find form again.

    The rarely visible number 9 made the comments whilst watching a NSW Cup game from the bench and wearing his coveted number 33 jersey.

    “Clearly regular footy is not the sport for me so maybe rep footy is where I need to be,” Lichaa said.

    “I’m sure just hanging around quality players would rub off on me and it would also allow me to learn the finer points of the game like running and passing.”

    NSW Coach Laurie Daley was contacted for comment a short time ago regarding Lichaa’s chances.

    “What’s a Lichaa?” Daley asked.

    still remember back in 93 or 94 as a kid going to watch the dogs at was then Bruce Stadium we got done by the raiders although pretty sure we were minor premiers that year....anyway me and my brother had walked around to the dressing rooms and got signatures and the players were heading out to get on the bus, the only signature we didn't have was Chris Andersons he was standing out at the bus and he didn't look at all happy and the raiders fans were giving it to him.

    Anyway neither me or my brother wanted to bother him especially with him not in the best mood so we started to walk off only for him to call us over.....faaark we thought what did we do lol
    when we got over there he cracked a smile and asked how we were going and said sorry for the result etc and said he had seen us collecting signatures and asked if we wanted anything signed, I had terry lambs book at the time and he signed that and also my junior footy jacket

    We said thanks and started to head off and he called us back and said hang on you forgot someone...nah bullshit we thought, got all the players? then he calls Folkesy over (fuck how could we ever have missed Folkesy) he was the trainer at that stage

    the thing that stuck with me from that day was that even after a loss and not in the best of moods he still took the time to notice what the fans who came over were doing and also to put his own feelings aside and call us over and be a really great friendly guy and also to notice one of the group in Folkesy had been not been included and to make sure he wasn't missed...………...a lot different to what we got from Hasler, Dib & Castle

    It's funny, in this country and in this sport we pretend to give a shit about mental health but the media and some people have no issue destroying someone's life over a private party that hurt absolutely no one to satisfy their disdain for the Bulldogs jersey.

    7th Tackle: Why Turvey deserted the Bulldogs

    There was also plenty of pantomime high up in the grandstand, where Bulldogs powerbrokers watched aghast at what should have been the club’s most embarrassing defeat in years.

    In fact, some simply refused to risk witnessing it. Around 10 minutes into the second half, when Newcastle grabbed the lead, arguably the greatest Bulldog of them all – Steve Mortimer – left the ground.

    “I just couldn’t keep watching,” he told us. “It was upsetting me too much.”

    [​IMG]

    The scoreboard wasn’t the source of Mortimer’s pain. Instead, it was the team’s inability to post points. For one of the most gifted playmakers of his generation, it was too much to bear.

    “We just didn’t create anything on their try line,” Mortimer said. “There was no set plays, no moves to create space on the outside.”
    Mortimer left so early that he arrived home in time to watch the final five minutes from his lounge room.

    “It was great they got the win, and great for Josh Reynolds to leave Belmore a winner,” Mortimer said. “I was very happy for him. But there are a lot of issues that the final scoreboard hid.”

    [​IMG]

    Mortimer stood down from the club’s board late last year after a public critique of coach Des Hasler.

    Hasler cannot defend the team’s attack – the worst in the NRL. But he is satisfied with its defence, which ranks seventh. What’s more, the Bulldogs have conceded more tries from kicks than any other team, meaning their line is particularly difficult to breach.

    Hasler believes just one more try per game would make all the difference. As demonstrated in the opening 20 minutes of Sunday’s game, the Bulldogs are creating enough chances. They just aren’t making the right choices to capitalise.

    Anderson is helping him out mate, nothing wrong with that considering Pay is a rookie coach. Both have the best interest of the club at heart.
    I’m telling you we are very lucky to have Chris Anderson back at the club. Anderson has won a premiership with the dogs as a player and also coached us to a premiership, only he and the late great Steve Folkes have done that. Anderson is a smart cookie, a two time premiership winning coach, former Australian test coach and has tonnes of experience in rebuilding a club.

    When Anderson took over in 1990, a stack of experienced players left the club at the end of that year, the likes of Langmack, Farrar, Gillespie, Tunks, Alchin, Thomas etc, Tony Currie left at the end of 88, Steve Mortimer retired and the rebuild in 1991 was well and truly underway. Young kids like Polla-Mounter, Gillies, Pay, Reardon, Relf, McCracken, J & D Smith we’re brought through and the team was built around Lamb. A couple of years later we we’re minor premiers in 93 & 94 and won the comp in 95.

    Let’s not forget what Anderson brought to Melbourne. He helped start up the Storm and won them the comp in 99.

    If there is anyone we need right now, it’s Anderson. The bloke has been working around the clock snapping up young guns from all over the Country. Pay won’t die wondering having Anderson there mark my words. The only way is up fellas. It may not come over night but it will come. Beware of the wounded dog!!

    What a ridiculous insensitive thing to say. You dont speak on behalf of all Bulldogs fans. Sure as hell not me. The guy is busting his ass to do his job.

    The surgeon found 2 holes in my heart that no one knew about. So he fixed them.

    Surgeon decided I was too young to have a valve replacement so did a repair.

    Operation lasted about 5 hours.

    Was in ICU for about a day, 6 of those hours were waiting for a bed in the cardiac ward.

    I got out of hospital on Monday, 1 week after the operation.

    Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how frigging good this bloke was today!!

    Even the commentators on Fox said it's the best game they've seen him play in years (and he did so with a calf cork for 60 minutes).

    The no fear attacks right up to the line, and taking 3-4 big blokes over the line with him, he seems hungry.

    THIS .. Ladies and Gentleman is the Kieran Foran that everyone who had faith in him, knew was lurking beneath the injuries.

    Now the scary part is he can get much better than today too.

    Forming links with Napa and CHN and I'd say Meaney out the back real soon, he's going to really fire for us moving forwards.
