WHO WILL WEAR THE BLAME AT THE POST-DES HASLER BULLDOGS?
I wonder who angry Bulldogs fans will blame if starved of success yet again this year at Belmore.
For the past two years, irate Canterbury supporters bombarded social media complaining about Des Hasler and his team’s playing style.
Hasler was an easy target.
Let’s not blame the players or anyone else at the club - let’s direct every ounce of vitriol at the coach.
Well, things don’t seem to have improved under new coach Dean Pay.
Let me say this, I like Dean Pay. He’s fair dinkum and a straight-shooter. I wish him success.
But there’s no avoiding the fact his side has lost both opening round games - and conceded 66 points. Hasler’s sides conceded just 18 points a game.
The vocal majority from last year are so far silent in 2018.
But I will be interested to see who they target should Canterbury drop another game or two in coming weeks.
Hasler isn’t there, nor is CEO Raelene Castle, chairman Ray Dib or skipper James Graham.
With whipping boy Hasler now long gone, I wonder where angry fans will now lay the blame?
