    A win for the good guys

    I thought I'd share a quick bit of good news for the Bulldogs family.

    My wife has been an Essendon AFL member for over 20 years, and a more passionate footy fan you'd struggle to find, but due to her disgust with the drugs saga and the way Essendon and in particular James Hird have conducted themselves, she has walked away from the club and this week joined the Western Bulldogs membership for the 2015 season.

    She has even decided if she enjoys the Bulldogs environment we will join the Top Dogs coterie in 2016.

    Sometimes the nice guys don't finish last!

    Did you sit down for a week at Camp David to negotiate that? That's a massive coup!

    Great stuff and good work 'Stache.


    Really good to hear.
    Get yourself a suit and tie
    And get your hair cut way up high
    Get yourself a lawyer, son
    You're gonna need a real good one

    I didn't have to do much really. There was some discussion about it at the end of last season, but all of us attending the winning VFL grand Final sealed it I think.

    It usually takes 2 days to get your voice back after 120 minutes of screaming at the umpires for free kicks. So it had it's upsides

    Top job Greystache - persistence pays off! Do you have any tips for converting supporters (drugs scandals aside)? Hypnotic whispering as they fall asleep? Humming Sons of the West regularly? Slyly leaving Bulldogs memorabilia strewn around the house?

    I reckon my WCE husband is ripe for a conversion, just to work out how...
    Wake me up when we get to heaven, let me sleep if we're going to hell

    Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath

    And we all found heaven - 2016 Premiers!

    So Peters 1,000,000 is starting to be repaid? Even better.

    Surprised Kofi Anan wasn't called in to negotiate a release from Cult Hird

    Well done, and the big win is you don't have to attend Essendon matches anymore.

    Are there any fans worse in umpire blaming than them?

    Getting a Bulldog named after a player would be a good start (even is his name is Gryphi). Then taking said Bulldog for regular outings to Whitten Oval for games and training sessions where about 1000 kids will ask to pat him and have their photo with him will go along way to conversion!

    You're a better man than I Grey. I would have walked away the minute I knew she barracked for the Bombres. Seriously though mate, well done!

    Hehe that's a good start but you will have to change his name now. You can't take him to family day and tell kids his name is Gryphi or they will cry.



    I'm in the process of brainwashing my 2 year old. I started about a year ago by giving her a musical bulldogs pen as a gift.
    When you press the button on the end it plays Sons of the West. So what you do is that everytime they press the button you make a big deal of it and start singing and clapping hands.

    You should of seen how excited she got when I took her to a match that we won and they started playing the song.
    All of a sudden things came together in her head. Song/Happy/Bulldogs/Daddy, all seems to be working so far!

    Not sure if the same process would work for an adult, unless some kind of hypnotherapy was involved.
