    Official Paul Vaughan signs for the Bulldogs on a one year deal

    Every year since the top 8 positive f/a ends at top 6, sometimes maybe most times even positive win/loss. That’s why every year, if you get on a decent enough run, every team is a chance at position’s 7 & 8. They’re the lottery spots.
