    News The Bulldogs in danger of losing sponsor

    He's hardly set the world on fire between when we let him go and now. If he winds up being a late bloomer that goes on to representative footy, complain about it, but he's a depth player that's had a decent debut game after years in reserves. Seems like whinging for the sake of it.

    I've always thought Johnson was fairly overrated. I'm not saying he didn't have skill. His running game at times has been great. But I think that's pretty much his main strength. Aside from a couple of years early in his career, he's not really been among the best halves for years.

    I didn't mind him. Thought he copped it pretty bad from the judiciary compared to many others. His deficiencies can be coached, but his pace is something that you either have or don't. If the rest of the team is firing, a forward with the pace of an outside back can be a real asset.
