Once again, your data was skewed because of who you excluded, presumably so your view could be substantiated.
I agree, it wasn't an accident.
You tried to convey your theory that we have a young and inexperienced forward pack by deliberately leaving out...
You go to the trouble of looking up ages and games played, do the math on averages, get some pretty graphs from nrl.com but accidentally leave out...
Your stats and arguments are skewed by including two players yet to debut in Roumanos and Kalache who are yet to play this year, while excluding...
Tigers didn't have the coin, DWZ didn't want to move the family to North QLD, Eels were the other club mentioned but they had Waqa Blake lined up.
Do you expect him to say 'Dean seemed a bit like tits on a bull, but with the Tigers not having the cap space, the missus not wanting to move to...
Probably needs to work on his defence
I have no trust in Pay to make the best recruitment decisions moving forward or his ability to get the best out of any roster.
This thread will be 3 pages long, mark my words.
I think you're giving them too much credit, I doubt they'd bother to do actual fact checking.
1. Sack Pay
2. Steal Monkey from zoo
3. Announce monkey as new coach
4. Sack the board
5. Catch a flock of Galah's
6. Put Galah's on new board
"You've got to remember that we're a young team, I thought they tried real hard with kickoffs the entire 80 minutes, but we still need to get...
Roumanos isn't even a good old country boy, something's up.
Can't blame the bloke for wanting out, ESL will suit his game too. He'll go well over there
I'm positive that Montoya and Meaney will let in at least 4 tries on their edge today
That might not be such a bad thing
Not sure if this has been brought up before, but what's everyone's thoughts on sacking Pay? He dead set has no fucking clue
The last time we 'won' the spoon was 2008.
Which team is better 2008 or 2019 Doggies?
2008 Squad Coached by the great Steve Folks
2015 NSW Under 20's, would probably still beat the 2019 bulldogs.
1. Latrell Mitchell (Sydney Roosters)
2. Brian Kelly (Gold Coast)
I've no doubt that the decisions that coach makes would be better then Dean Pay's
He should be ruled out of the game, would have a couple of weeks to rest it.
It's obviously not an injury that requires surgical intervention at...
FMD why is Pay persisting with Elliot on the edge, dropping Ogden, keeping Montoya...
Still in the coaches box
Good signing, step in the eight direction for sure
Blake and RCG please
If we're being politically correct I think this should be referred to as 'going walkabout'
He'd be a good addition to our squad, he can bring his brother too.
Makes absolutely zero sense.
While Stimson might prove to be a good buy, with his injury history and our lack of depth in literally every other...
The Mole reporting Dragons interested in RFM....
This is the perfect opportunity for the board to come out and slam Rothfield and the DT for using the clubs name in a negative manner.
Welch would be a great addition.
There's no confidence in the playing squad at all in particular the spine.
Meaney chimed in nicely for the Montaya try and he's safe at the back,...
I think Aidan Tolman is a great halfback
Wouldn't that toughen the meat up?
CHN is playing NSW Cup... wtf Pay?
I found it surprising he only had 1 charge initially. Usual process is to throw multiple charges over the same incident to ensure one sticks.
Fucking hell... were you having a stroke when you wrote that?
Perth until we have a competitive squad.
Maybe he's just a really bad singer?
Wasn't he a backrower coming thru juniors?
There's no doubt he looks lost sometimes on the wing, and 1st grade is a pretty difficult place to...
So if this is true who are we releasing?
The worrying thing is that the Titans haven't gone to our right side yet
It's going to be a long afternoon
Smart play by Jai Arrow
The Bulldogs are chasing one of Melbourne's finest young forwards for an immediate transfer.
Storm bench forward Joe Stimson is being lured by...
He is a good winger, but has he played much in the centres? That's where we're short.
Be nice if they send us Marsters in return.
Over hyped gimmick.
He's still a development player. Will only get a shot if someone is moved on and he's promoted to the top 30 squad, or else, has to wait till...
JMK kicking out of dummy half... I'd like to see more of it.
I was kind of hopeful...
Sounds like Tedesco and Smith would get along like a house on fire...
The Shannon Wakeman
This is a baffling selection. There has to be more to it, Ogden's been one of our best forwards since Napa got injured. Great impact, strong in...
I remember reading or hearing we had about 2 mil for next season and 8 players that need to be signed.
With that in mind, from the off contract...
Get him on the plane now, bring Christian Welch with him.
By allowing the Souths / Inglis deal to happen in whatever respects they do, either including the full value of his salary in the cap, partial or...
Sounds like Rothfield wants some attention
I wouldn't say no to either of them, in particular Whare. He's one of the best centres in the game.
Edwards had massive wraps and it was...
We need some depth in the outside backs.
If anyone gets injured Montoya comes back in...
Holland dropped, Smith and Hoppa as the centres, French...
We've got to take Souths on thru the middle to wear there big forwards out. Shifts from left to right around the ruck to expose there big forwards...
As a club, the bulldogs demand success.
We expect to be there in September.
We hate losing.
We won't win many this year.
We're the youngest team...
Reynolds last 2 gamed have been great. Wonder what happens when Benji comes back though?
We can pay him in cupcakes?
With Trent Merrin being released from his ESL contract, would you like to see him in a Bulldogs jersey.
Although we would need to release a...
The bloke kicks at 90%. It was the 80th minute of the game, would have been very fatigued...
I guarantee you he'll remember that kick for a...
Ah right... so very unlikely then haha
Phillip Sami has been impressive the last couple of year s on the wing for titans, not sure why he's out of favour now but would be a good option....
I knew it would be a divisive opinion on here, but I think in an advisory role he'd be beneficial.
I'm not suggesting giving the old fella an...
With whispers of Gould being on the outer at Penrith and not far from exiting, would it be worth picking him up in an advisory capacity to Dean...
That streamlined trim makes him more aerodynamic
I've always rated Tolman. Does all the 1% plays well, solid in defence, strong kick chase (likely due to taking the 4th hit up), covers others in...
Different styles of front rower, both have merit.
The obvious choice is Napa.
I doubted his signing, particularly as he was touted as the leader...
Much improved performance and not a single player who didn't put in the effort and do there job.
Not as much one out running, good support play....
Ever heard of a bloke called Ben Barba?
Just caught the last 15 minutes of Dragons and Panthers reggies.
Robson mixes up his dummy half play well. Passes off the ground both ways at...
NRlol has a very big rug
I understand that he deserves some benefit of the doubt with what he inherited, but could have waited a few more rounds to at least see some...
Can't we just take some stem cells from Kerrod Holland and grow a Kerrod Holland clone, calling it Kerrod Hallond.
BAM, premiership window opened
There's no doubt that money is a major contributing factor to where a player signs.
If we're relying on using money as the carrot to get players...
Who ever it is, the board needs to get it right. We'll have a high turnover of players at the end of 2020 and if the recruitment and retention is...
For 2020 I'd be looking at;
However I doubt that we'd get any of them.
Different coaches suit squads at different points in time, look at Nathan Brown at Newcastle
Made the tough calls on personnel due to salary cap...
4 changes after 2 rounds is a desperate move by Pay, almost a last roll of the dice.
Montoya had to go, 2 bombed tries, poor defensive reads....
We were all warned about the rebuilding stage and the pain we'll need to go thru.
We do look unfit in comparison to other teams.
We look unsure in...
I think 1 trial game was a mistake.
Aside from lack of match fitness, it would also be good to have some of the new combinations tested under...
Manly would be the obvious club for me.
Shit stadium, private owners who don't want to spend any more cash.
Careful what you wish for... Liccha came with big wraps too
Yes!!!!! Another backrower, just what we need.
Unfortunately none, stupid job.
Liccha can play 80, he's the best option we have.
Ogden in for JMK is the only change I'd want to see.
Elliot to the bench, Tolman to lock and Ogden starting.
CHN can cover the backs if need be.
You're basically saying lets give up on this season after 1 shit game.
I like the look of both Cogger and Meaney, but they're not the answer.
Separate names with a comma.
