    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!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    Kieran has had some heavy criticism on here, and I acknowledge the injuries he’s had and the wage he’s on are hard to stomach. However the clubs lack of due diligence and awful management of the salary cap at the time isn’t his fault. No one deserves criticism for getting the best deal they possibly can for themselves and family.

    So let’s give him some credit for the toughness, professionalism, excellent attitude and positivity he’s displayed this year.

    Playing 50 mins with an ankle injury most specialists claim one shouldn’t be able to walk on, and then being so dedicated to his rehab he returns 4 weeks before scheduled, to be arguably our best on ground is worthy of praise.

    His quality, experience and leadership for us, both on and off the field gives me some hope for our team, in what is clearly a very difficult time for players, officials and fans.

    So from a frustrated supporter, clinging onto any positives, I give Foz a big thumbs up and hope other doggies fans get behind him and the struggling team. He can provide the inspiration and creativity we are lacking and play a significant role in our fortunes turning.

    This bloke has been copping it for years because he does not bust tackles like Taumalolo and does not whack in defence like Napa.

    Bloke is worth a million bucks to this club. Turns up every week, does the dirty work no other forward does. When it comes to defence, Tolman and Finucane are the best in the league, by a country mile.

    A country kid with a country mentality! Play the 80th minute like the 1st. Doesnt have 2 bad games in a season. Mr consistent!

    Worth every penny the club is paying him

    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.

    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!
