  2. Re: The Tall Dogs in 2020 - a change in tactics?

    Prepare to be disappointed. There's going to be times when we're caught out and Caleb will be the man with the tank to get back, resulting in the odd miss-match.
  3. Re: The Tall Dogs in 2020 - a change in tactics?

    We'll possibly go a little more direct and take on the interceptor a bit more to avoid opposition defences rolling back and blocking space.

    Essendon is a Ponzi Scheme that just fraudulently lures new investors for the benefit of older investors, namely the media that gets a shit tonne of mileage out of talking about them regularly.

  13. Re: Eight reasons for Bulldogs fans to get excited about 2020

    Agreed. Libba is a big concern for me. He needs to get more football and clean football so he can use his kicking more effectively. He’s not productive enough for mine.
