    Dogs Shuffle Assistant Coaches

    afl.com.au

    REIGNING premiers, the Western Bulldogs, have revitalised their successful coaching panel in their quest to maintain a competitive edge.

    In another sign that the Dogs won't be satisfied with breaking their 62-year drought, Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge has reassigned the responsibilities among his assistants.

    Steven King has moved from midfield to defensive coach, Joel Corey has stepped up from stoppages to midfield, forward coach Daniel Giansiracusa has taken over stoppages, reigning VFL premiership coach Ashley Hansen is now in charge of the Dogs attack, and defensive coach Rohan Smith has become the head of development.

    Chris Maple has relinquished the development role to take up the post of coaching performance manager.

    "'Bevo' just wants everyone to keep developing, which is a great thing, and for us, it is good to keep us on our toes," King told News Corporation.

    King was enthused by his new backline portfolio after five seasons in charge of the Dogs' talented running brigade.

    "I've loved being a part of the mids, but I am looking forward to working with the backs now," he said.

    "Rohan Smith has done an amazing job in defence. The way they play for each other, not only the way they defend, but the way they bounce off and start attacking, has certainly been a springboard for the way we play.

    "I walk into the most mature group in the club, with (Matthew) Boyd, (Dale) Morris, (Bob) Murphy, (Matt) Suckling, (Easton) Wood and (Jason) Johannisen."

    The Bulldogs' full squad trained together for the first time on Monday, with most eyes on skipper Murphy, who is on the comeback trail from a knee reconstruction, and Collingwood recruit Travis Cloke.

    No good being a ruck coach if you are all hunched over.
    Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali

    On fire today KT.
    One of the great moments in life is the sense of space and time you feel between taking a hanger and touching back down.

    Well-meaning little therapists
    Goose-stepping twelve-stepping Tetotalitarianists
    The tipsy, the reeling and the drop down pissed
    We got no time for that stuff here
    Zero crime and no fear
    We've bred all our kittens white
    So you can see them in the night
    And at night we're on our knees
    As quiet as a mouse
    Since the word got out
    From the North down to the South
    For no-one's left in doubt
    There's no fear about
    If we all hold hands and very quietly shout
    Hallelujah
    God is in the house...
