    Of course they do.

    They are not here for the free finger food at the Leagues club.

    Anderson is here because he played for the dogs, won a premiership as a player with the dogs, coached the dogs to a premiership and married the bulldogs boss’ daughter. Other than Steve Folkes, you can’t get anymore bulldog blood than that.

    If anyone thinks the Andersons are here for anything else other than on field football success has rocks in their heads.

    They're desperate, don't release him unless they pay full 800k or whatever he's on.

    Kieran Foran’s rugby league career may be over, with the Bulldogs secretly attempting to retire the former superstar halfback on medical grounds.

    Foran is currently sidelined for at least a month with a toe injury, and has also been carrying a neck-shoulder problem.

    The former Kiwi Test ace was signed by former Bulldogs coach Des Hasler from the Warriors last year on a deal worth around a $1 million a season.

    But Foran has failed to live up to the hype and with off-field problems also hampering him, looks a mere shadow of the player who starred for Manly and New Zealand in recent years.

    If the NRL agrees to allow Foran to be retired by the club, he will still get his contract money.

    If you want him... Give us Holmes.
    If you want us to pay $250k of his wage... Give us Katoa.

    If not... Fuck off pepdite cheats.

    I don't truly believe that Chris Anderson is working or going behind Hills back. I see Hill as the clubs mouth piece doing his job, talking things up in the media while knowing all along what Chris is up too. I mean it's no secret that we have shopped players around, if it is it is the worst kept secret there is. Hill as our CEO wants the club to negotiate from a position of power while keeping the scavengers at bay so he tells a porkie now and then that keeps everyone guessing . But honestly by letting go of Moses Mbye after the Belmore game we have strengthened our negotiating position with the Sharks effectively telling them, that we are in a much stronger position cap wise and that if they want Woods they will have to take up most if not all of his contract.

    Now whether the rumors of Foran being solicited into early retirement or inquiries made unofficially to the NRL to medically retire him are true or not only time will tell. But in the best interest moving forward for both parties I believe it would be beneficial to both Foran and the club to try and medically retire him. Maybe offer Foran a job after footy to sweeten the deal.

    Read this morning that dogs chasing Matt Parcell who is playing over in the Super League, who previously played for Manly.

    I know about the salary cap issues bla bla bla but this bloke would be a great asset if we snared him, has the speed the vision and a great runner from dummy half. Killing it in England.

    Better than any hooker we have at the club. Would be a great acquisition.

    And yes have watched him since he made his debut for Manly a few years ago

    Would you let go Woods knowing you can sign Martin kapow and hipgrave from the Gold Coast? Because I’ve heard some whispers

    Lol, Mbye would take a pay cut to leave, why wouldn't he offer to re-negotiate his contract with the club.

    How about we keep Woods and give the bloke a chance to find his best... and do what we can to offload Foran who hardly seems interested

    Say he's on 750 000. If we're going to pay 250 000. That leaves 500 000 for someone. You won't get anyone better than Woods for that money, so he may as well stay. If we could get away with maybe paying 100 000 I'd say yes but def not a cent more.
