    News Management could bite Bulldogs

    Firstly, even if we had $4m to spend on the spine, there’s not a whole heap of established talent out there. Secondly, the teams that won the comp didn’t have superstars in the spine, bar the roosters. Melbourne and Penrith developed players like Hughes and Luai. Let’s give our youngsters a...

    Opinion The most URGENT fixes

    Katoa has shown more in 3 games than JMK has in 3 years. Jackson is a middle forward. Never to see an edge again. Tolman either plays like Grimaldi did years ago - that is just defend and never touch the ball out attaching half, or he can F off.

    Foran worth keeping.

    We need a half and hooker. There aren’t any quality top line options out there. Replace him if you can find better. But given what’s available I would re-sign him for 2 yrs on normal money.

    Next few years

    I have a general question that would love to be answered... and it's not necessarily leading to criticism... BUT... how could the previous board and Hasler sign Foran and Woods with our cap situation and this board (and Pay) have to release so many players now? At the time, Hasler was re signed...

    Canterbury Bulldogs great George Peponis says referee standards are driving fans craz

    Exactly.... they are encouraging all of this because of the video ref involvement. Seriously apart from every second try going to the video ref, they are checking on every player that stays down, they are checking to see if its a 40/20, they are checking to see who touch the ball last before its...

    Canterbury Bulldogs great George Peponis says referee standards are driving fans craz

    The player and crowd frustration stems more so from the video referee interference. Its absolutely ridiculous that the video referee interferes whenever there's enough of a stoppage in play. We aren't bloody watching cricket ! What if Reynolds wasn't injured? The referees were letting play on...

    I'm done watching this crap. You can't expect people to go to games and spend all night watching the big screen for video ref decisions. You can live with shit calls live. We would have had at least 1 try given.

    Would you want Benji Marshall to join our team this season?

    100% yes for me. At FB! Remember that last year he was playing half back for a team that was struggling. He isn't a half back. We've spent all off season crying out for a FB. Yes great start to the season by us, but we need more potency in attack and he would be incredible behind our forward...

    Match Day Thread: Canterbury Bulldogs vs Broncos @ ANZ Stadium

    All the talk if Barba being a cancer last year was just an excuse. The way our boys were with him after the game shows that. We lost to a team with no halves at all. We have nothing in attack. Same as last year, but this year we have no Barba as well. It's going to be a looooong year

    2013 Finals : Four-punch combo.

    My heart says yes but my head at this stage hasn't seen anything all year to say we can make a run.

    Impact of successive marquee losses.

    I think it's worse when all those names are lumped into one sentence!!! The main issue lies around the impact off the field as well. Who is 'the face' of our club? Which player do the kids come to watch and pretend to be? Seeing all these guys leave - particularly Idris and now Barba really...

    Ben Barba's $1 million asking price 'ridiculous', say Brisbane Broncos

    Yes would have to agree with the point about his manager..... however I cant agree with the fact that we have handled it badly. From the outside looking in, he obviously wants to go back to QLD, so I don't think even if we offered him more, that he would stay. In saying that, as the NRL rules...

    Enough is Enough

    I think the point of the post was how the media has turned this into a circus and does every time it involves the bulldogs. The reason is simple... The circulation and number of hits on the tele's website increases every time there is a story on the bulldogs.

    How do you think changes to the cap in 18 months time will affect our team?

    Part of me says wants it to be like 10-15 yrs ago (thats how far I can remember!) when players stuck with their clubs and played for the jersey. The reality is though that if an employer wants someone bad enough and is willing to pay overs for him - its very difficult for that person to say no...

    Bulldogs hungry to bite back after loss

    No matter what anyone says, the team is already thinking about week 1 of the semis. We are guaranteed to finish 1 or 2. This game is irrelevant - win or lose. Lets enjoy it for what it is. We haven't been there for the last 2 yrs! Cant wait for September footy!!!

    Live Courage of FINALS via internet or cable internet/tv

    Hope the new TV deal sorts this out. In Fiji at the moment and can't watch it 'officially' because the broadcaster has the rights to 2 games per week - and they weren't the dogs game!!! In saying that, it was probably a blessing in disguise!

    Souths won't tank (Let's make them wish they did)

    I'll take souths in the first week of the semi's over all other sides in the 8 at the moment. They're limping in, and have nothing in attack apart from Inglis.

    Storm No Try was in fact a Try. Doggies benefit for once.

    and considering we scored from the next set of 6, it was a massive call for us. As a one eyed dogs supporter i was happy with the call - I just hope we dont cop a call against us like that in the semis!

    Storm No Try was in fact a Try. Doggies benefit for once.

    It was a 50/50 call that went our way. Seems like these calls are going our way this year though. In any case, everyone hates Bellamy and the storm.

    2011 : The Run to Finals

    The next three weeks are vital.... if we are to make the semis they must (should) beat these sides (particularly if Thurston is out for Cowboys). That would take us to 26 pts and probably only needing to win 1 of last 3.

    Any thoughts on Morris as our fullback?

    and Barba is the leading try scorer in the competition and the only one who can score for us...... pressure the kickers and he wont be under as much pressure. There will be a massive difference when ennis gets back. Pity no one could do that while he was out .

    Your Side vs Warriors

    I agree good as Cooper Cronk is, he had enough time to make a coffee and smoke a cigarette, before putting up each kick. Any decent playmaker will be able to put the ball roughly in the right spot if he has so much time. Its no coincidence that the problems at the back have...
