Hello all! Longtime lurker of this forum. Longtime bulldog fan from 1974. I'll keep this short as I possibly can given the evolution of my beloved football team. I admire a lot of members here with their sound knowledge of the game and club. Always giving me an insight and hearing it about my team as it is. I don't disagree with anyone here as it is a forum to vent passion. Basically why i decided to join now is shameful. I spent the last 3 weeks in manila and through good fortune i was able to stream the doggies games live there. Prior to this my filipina girlfriend had no idea about the game of rugby league. I thought i'd introduce her to it and my favourite team. Perfect!!! 3 games we watched. doggies vs broncos,cowboys and souths. Possibly the worst 3 consecutive games of bulldogs games I've seen in forever. Like many club supporters everyone's team goes through rough patches where teams rebuild and so on. Given the callabre of players coaching staff facilities etc here, this is no excuse. I agree with the general consensus here that Hasler has to go. Club has invested plenty of time, money to put premiership trophies in the cabinet. Not semifinalist also ran honors. Anyway in those 3 games the broncos, cowboys and bunnies explained to her and my team how the game is played. Possession of the ball,field positions, repeat sets, executing set plays and good defence wins games. She only struggled to understand that crossing the line is called a try and not a goal. She will improve in time if my team somehow scores more of those.
