    Official Gus on Twitter

    Summed it up perfectly. You could see attack was flat due to fatigue. Fatigue was due to a combination of errors, poor discipline and lots of questionable ref calls. Errors and disciple can be improved with more experience and training. The only other thing I will add is having the right...

    Official ROUND 1 | Bulldogs vs Eels | Discussion thread 5:30pm @ CommBank Stadium

    To be fair to Mahoney he made a large number of effective tackles last night and the ones he missed we’re ones he was bumped off by the big boppers but was effective on the second try as a result of slowing them down and getting some help. Watching a lot of team off the play was concerning like...

    Spot on about Taffe. He has the potential to be electric but has not executed his role in our attacking sets correctly. Seems to run into the tackle rather than pass to outside speed men such as Addo-Carr. Plus doesn’t seem to be backing during breaks. He is a confidence player and given his...

    I would say his thoughts represent the majority of fans on the forum. You on the other hand do nothing but undermine the club any chance you got which I think most people have worked out arises from some fantasy you have about the board being overthrown. Why don’t you call RFM so you can both...

    Gus is building for sustained success. I’m pretty sure we went back to being poor for a few years after 2009. What we did have in 2009 was great juniors coming through such as Barba, Idris, Ficuane Jackson etc but that all stopped when Des arrived in 2012

    An explanation?

    Gus has a BIG ego and prides his reputation. He will step in in some way, shape or form, even if it means throwing CC under the bus (delicately) to protect his reputation (which is also on the line here). The fear will drive him to make our club a success (if not for any other reason).

    Something wrong with the Dogs or Rugby League?

    Wilson should be 14 against Roosters

    Perham needs to be dropped. Is not fluid in our attacking structure and defensive plays are still questionable. Wilson seems like a more natural back and fluid with team play. With players coming back from injury I would drop Perham and Waddell.
  62. D

    Wilson should be 14 against Roosters

    Needs to be on the bench. So does Morrin who just brings bursts of energy and straightens up our attack. I thought Edwards was good too. Question is who drops off when Kiks, Sutton, Thommo and pele come back?
  63. D


    Pele in his limited minutes is a lot more effective and influential then a lot of others on the field full-time. He may need to work on his fitness but has the potential to be the destructive game changing forward ie fifita/Kasiano type player we desperately crave.
