    Surely he's just taking then home to show Miss Universe off? I know I would be. And I'd be leaving the bit about her just being a contestant out as well.

    Another good wrap about this this pup: Nine B&Fs in 10 years: Dog's remarkable record

    He has got the right attitude ...
    "But awards are not a key motivator for me, they're just bonuses."
    "As a 17-year-old, it was a step-up in physicality playing against men but it wasn't something that worried me because I'm a combative player," he said.
    "My mindset is to play until the final siren."
    and recognises things he need to work on
    "Every player has some deficiencies and, at the minute, my kicking is something I'm really going to be working on," he said.
    “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela

    9 B & Fs in 10 years is a fair effort.

    I wonder if it was one B& F a year or did he win a couple of completion B& Fs as well. If he's won nine out of ten seasons of footy that's a amazing level of consinstancy.

    Good to hear Callum speak today on the Bulldogs website. Noticed he has a bit of a country drawl when speaking. Liked the way he made a fleeting reference to looking forward to his debut - looks like he’s aiming high in 2018!

    Very impressive interview. The lad sounds very driven and a good communicator.

    If we keep drafting players with the right attitude and approach we will continue to do well. Porter comes across as someone the coaches and players would want on the team.
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    Absolutely, we need to address anyone who isn't measuring up.

    Porter has a great attitude and if we can improve his kicking skills he will be a great addition for us.

    He spoke well for a kid that has only been in the system for three month's, great attitude.

    Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs - Callum Porter

    Will this year be the year Porter breaks into the team?

    Has he got the attributes to make it as an AFL player?

    Turns 20 years old today, but I think he is in his make or break year.
    Premierships: AFL 1954, 2016 VFA - 1898,99,1900, 1908, 1913, 1919-20, 1923-24, VFL: 2014, 2016 . Champions of Victoria 1924. AFLW - 2018.
