"Nissan's got the know how"!
Grand final banner in 1988. There was a TV ad for Nissan motor vehicles at the time stating Nissan's got the know how.
So the dogs used it for a banner during GF week for Glen Nissan
Nothing beats Parra are scum as far as banners go!

Hahaha...you can see it in the crowd when you watch the 1984 GF on video...Weird colour they used for the banner, I think it was pink or red or something, I think they used that colour so the banner can stand out like dogs balls.

Wasn't Willie Talau there before dymock came ?
I'm not sure where you heard that mate. Dymock left the team after the 1995 GF win, before Talau joined in 1998.

I remember watching the 1985 GF replay with a mate of mine a couple of days before the 2004 GF.
At the end of the 85 GF the camera showed the scoreboard at the SCG and it had Bulldogs Premiers with the bulldog logo/picture, and the big SCG screen had "Mitsubishi Electric" written on it as the manufacturer of the big scoreboard screen....we both looked at each other and said "we're going to win on Sunday"

We were leading 22-18 with 11 minutes left. Ricky Stuart put a kick through & Matt Geyer scored after a long run to put them in front. It was a premiership missed because of 1 kick.
Thanks mate, dont know why my recollection was a pass, but at least I got the player right:blush:

just went through the entire list and found other than a few Kiwis Jimmy Dymock was our first real coconut ( Tongan decent ) a few years later and the flood gates opened and loads started to play in the dogs and NRL
great player and pound for pound on of the best
I don't know your cultural background but calling someone a coconut is racist and if you don't get banned then I'm calling out this site as racist also.

am Indian
And won’t get banned for saying the c word
Same as calling someone from England a Pommy or from NZ a kiwi
Just cause islanders come from places were coconuts grow dosnt make it racist

Coconuts grow naturally in over 80 countries. Coconuts are grown in plantations in countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, India and Sri Lanka. The Philippines is the largest producer of coconuts, and Indonesia the second largest.
