    Croft seems more like a Bulldog signing to me based on our player buying history, we have never really been a club that buys Lattrels and Flanagan made a choice thats hard to argue with considering the rorters roster and recent premiership history..That said I dont believe we are targeting a big money half.

    Regardless its his last year and we will get the $350k rep allowance. Funnily enough even with a war chest I can see the dogs buying players more like Leilua, Croft or even or maybe someone like Moyan. I think the belief is more about pre season prep with what we have been working with effectively at the end of this season and adding a couple like them to the Stimsons etc that we already have recruited.

    Re-building our "Bred not bought" should be the mandate.

    Foran leaves a big hole of experience, leadership and inspiration for team. Recruitment needs to find another strong experienced leader. No more of the “we are a young team and still learning” excuses.

    I hope he is gone but the timing really sucks. I have a strong feeling we will now be without a dominant half next season as we have no real opportunity to buy anyone now/

    Cody Walker is asking for in excess of $800k and Souths said “NO” straight away and told him he could go to the open market for a reason. He isn’t a creative half or someone who can control a game. A lot of what he does is individual brilliance and even that works every so often. Bulldogs need a controlling half with a good kicking game and experience.

    Might be a good thing. Its not ideal buy better than him getting injured round 1 and not having a contingency plan. Pay and Co. can select the team and get on with training the whole off season.

    It would be great news if true but like others have said, Triple M honestly have pretty much never been right with a rumour so until I see something official, I'm not getting my hopes up.

    If he retires though, wouldn't he forfeit his salary for the upcoming year? Or at worst, he'd reach a settlement for a smaller portion of his contract? If so, why wouldn't he see out the year to get his full $1.2 million?
