    Re: Our club was born in blood and boots...

    Interestingly we have given a good account of ourselves against Richmond in recent years, save for one injury hit performance.

    In my view that's a tick for playing our own game to maximise the...

    Grant

  3. Re: Your Top 5 best Bulldog players ever (in order)

    Beasley kicked more goals than any other VFL/AFL player during the 80s.
  4. Re: Very, very stupid AFL people, past or present

    Take into account match payments and you get more playing seniors. Far more if you are a best 22 player come contract time.
  5. Re: Very, very stupid AFL people, past or present

    Harsh - and the players that stuck with us in October 2014?
    No captain, coach or CEO.

    I still like a little bit of loyalty in football.

    I read it as working hard to guard against the opposition outlet possession i.e. working both ways.

    Re: Our club was born in blood and boots...

    It might be easier to list the guys who do "guard space".
    I'm convinced Daniel does - hence he often found himself against taller opponents when he first shifted to defence.
    Hunter does despite...

    I read it that way too.
    I think that bodes poorly for Schache and Dale. Perhaps positively for a bolter like Cavarra. Probably helps McNeill's case too

    That's kind of the point. He could have sought midfield time elsewhere but he sacrificed his preferred position for the club.

    I agree with this - in his playing days if a rookie got a bit "yappy" at training it was Monty who would sit him on his arse during a drill.
