    And? He’s from Townsville.
    He was always going there when the NFL bubble burst.
    Nothing to do with the Bulldogs.
    Pointless comment #3157.

    Based on some of the comments made on here the average age and IQ of a few select posters seems to be around 7, maybe 10 on a good day

    He left last this season though? Not talking about when he left years back.

    He came back?
    I thought he left the Dogs 2013/14.
    He went to the Titans, then England, then NZ.

    He was 19 (season 2019), skipper of our SG Ball grand final side in 2018 -inexplicably the Club didn’t see him in the mix for a top 30 or development spot. Wasn’t held in high regard by the coaching staff (not mentally tough enough).We’re also in danger of losing his younger brother Lachlan. They are the sons of former Bulldog Willie Talau

    S
    Sorry I was referring to Burr.
    Understood re: Talau’s though. Cheers.

    We're talking about Burr not Tommy...but the Tommy Talau thing is defenitely concerning and looks like it could be happening again.

    Yes....but my issue is why did the club decide that they wouldn't reward him with a spot in the 30, that's all he was asking for. Instead the club went out and recruited depth from outside the club despite it already being here.

    Yeah hence my point earlier today with McDonnell - just seemed to grab someone from the Tigers to look busy. He didn’t last long.

    Disagree completely... Meaney is solid and Cogger is improving every game he plays... Can't rip on the kids when they have been part of 2 of the shittest teams / forward packs of the modern game.

    Who are you comparing Meaney and Cogger too tho? Look through other teams rosters. They'd struggle to make anyone else's team (if anyone). As it stands (I'm not going to 100% rule them out) I wouldn't want them in our 2021 team.

    Until cogger can tackle and not get dominated in defence he will never rise to any great heights

    That's your interpretation of what I wrote; but that's not what I actually said.

    My comment was that high priced superstars often come with baggage that affects the morale of the team. What service have we had from Foran? Remember T-Rex? Our regular players have to pick up the slack - do you reckon they don't wonder why they have do the heavy lifting while these characters are sitting around on their massive salaries?

    Better that we focus on good players with the potential to develop into stars, than buy high priced players whose clubs are happy to release.

    He doesn't arm grab he takes the hit, it's all about the players beside him to work together. Maloney and Soward are the perfect example
