How do you teach a team to catch a ball ?
I guess it all stems from a horse shit game plan.
Play with happy vibes get everyone doing what they should be a hooker with better service .
A seven that knows what he’s doing
Lol if they think Flanagan is the answer.
And anyone else at 13
Put ado car fullback.
Happy days new spine now we can walk .

Very happy with that list
Flanno and Thompson need to go
Jackson and Waddell should be on the list
Not sure about RFM. He's too brittle. Doorey is meh
No mention of getting rid of our biggest problem in Baz

K Foran has come back from numerous injuries and the past 18 months has been in good form… let’s hope RFM can do the same!

Anyone but Waddell & pub crawler Stimpson on the edges would be a massive improvement

Rotten luck for Doorey with his injury but really he is not the right stature for 2ndrow now with the way play is heading.

Take a look at other teams. Much taller, bigger physique and agile on their feet. Hit harder in defence and with the ball. It's another area where Bulldogs are lacking.

Had a lot of potential and in a better coached team, he could find a niche but like a lot of our players, we dont have the luxury of giving them specific jobs bc we are too disorganised.

Hope he can get back on the field and show us what he's got this year.

Yep a lot of them need to go but it ain’t that easy. Flanno , Thompson and Allen are all on contract and are all overpaid. We would have to pay massive freight on all of them.

I would be stunned if they haven’t already been shopped around but the fact they are all still here suggests there have been no takers. Maybe it might be easier to move them on next year with it being the last year of their contracts

You know what Brad Fitler did to SKD in his early years after Shaun had some wobbles when it came to catching?

Made him carry a ball everywhere. To training. From training. Doing laps. In between gym reps. After ploughing his missus.

Seemed to work a treat.

Rfm, Doorey, and topine would be on chump change if we were to re sign them anyway. The higher paid under performers should be the first gone.

Yes that seems the most likely. Another year of a dead weight roster. We cant move them on on decent terms to make it worthwhile.

It's why there's more pain next year until we have a decent competitive Top 30.

We are still far behind the 8 ball in roster and coaching staff for 2023 to be Top 8 but we can always hope things will turn around and pray that Kiks and Mahoney hold their form with us.

All clubs have players in their 30 or even their 17 that they would love to upgrade or change. Our squad has enough talent to have at least win 4 or 5 games so far and be around 10-12 on the ladder.

This year was supposed to be a year of improvement and development before our gun hooker and back rower join next year for a real tilt at the finals. We have regressed and that’s not because of the fucking roster, it’s the coaching staff. Many of our young blokes are being ruined by Barrett and co and the confidence in the decision Burton/JAC etc made to come to the dogs is evaporating every week.

The madness has to stop.

TPJ wanted out of QLD anyway, We need to pilfer some muscle up front, i would have been happy Vaughan staying, but we need someone like Nelson from Storm and a Spencer Leniu from Panthers.

Really this club is getting to Wests Tigers level. It’s so sad to see. Players come and go, paying players to go elsewhere after signing them on stupid deals.
