    He looked promising at the back end of last year in reserve grade but this year has been a write off. He’s been up there with John Olive for defence this year and in attack he’s been average at best.

    Least none are long term and they’ll be right for preseason.

    I haven't seen much of him this year but he's always had deficiency in his defence and that's in reserve grade,
    Imagine what he would be like in first grade ?
    Unless he has a problem that we don't know about...
    He strickes me to be one of those blokes that allows social media (media) get to his head and if things aren't going his way he becomes disinterested instead of knuckling down to prove his worth,
    That's where a good mentor (coach) becomes very handy !!!

    We need a bit more of that mentoring. We don't molly coddle players at the Bulldogs but times are changing. If we've invested al this time and money in fringe players, we need to be getting the most out of them for sure.

    We have been churning too many players who've had potential but fade away. I know it's just a thing..but...we need to be better like dare I say ...Storm ;)

    We need to get it back...apart from anything else; it's a waste of money to pay these guys in Top 30 and realise you can't use them in FG.

    I have previously posted this story...this happened in the off season 1979,
    One morning the papers reported that Eastern suburbs (the Rorters now) are offering the 3 young Mortimers a massive contract then worth $90K a season.
    A Belmore businessman that I knew who was a Canterbury tragic and on great terms with Bullfrog himself, didn't like what he read.
    Rolled the paper and headed up to the club, walked straight into Bullfrogs office...
    This was their conversation
    F. Hi bullfrog
    B. hi F.
    F. what is this story in the papers
    B. sit down F.
    F. the Mortimers will not go nowhere, pulling $10k out of his pocket placing them on bullfrogs desktop continuing...I will come back with the rest he said
    B. put your money in your pocket F. We have offered the Mortimers a fair offer and will look after them in the future,
    If they want to go for the money...they can go !
    If they want to stay for the money only...we don't want them here !
    The rest is HISTORY and the DAWN of Canterbury's greatest era !!!
    This is where the BULLDOGS DNA and BLUEPRINT comes from !!!
    Chris Anderson was the son-in-law and eggs salesman then:sweatsmile:
    Lynn Anderson is Bullfrogs daughter and the eggs salesman wife :sweatsmile:
    Let's just hope they and the rest of the board truly have learnt well from Bullfrog...as they claim to have !

    I think they would have dropped back to Flegg for the finals though. It’s a moot point now anyway.

    I remember well a story going around that the transit lounge were after Turvey. I indignantly got out pen and paper and sent off a long winded letter to be published in Rugby League Week speaking on behalf of all Bulldogs supporters that it must never happen lol.

    I sent letters to Peter Moore suggesting young players from our local league for the Dogs to enquire about. He always wrote back and gave up to date contact details for the kids parents to contact him personally....we had a bewdy in Bullfrog.
