    No disrespect to players from other leagues around the country, but how Kelvin Templeton isn’t in it is a disgrace!
    It’s a bit like an a-league player being nominated for a Ballan d’or.
    Well done to Terry Wallace , regardless how it finished at our club he was an excellent , courageous player

    Great stuff Plough, you make us proud that you are a bulldog.

    Damn straight about KT. 99% of the HOF ain't fit to shine his boots and there is no way most of them should be selected before him.

    He was 22 when he played his last serious game of league football and had already won two Colemans, a Brownlow and two AA jumpers. What the hell is he supposed to do? Maybe he should have spent his career dominating the local yokels in a Mickey Mouse competition? Hiding away from the big boys and pretending?

    Wallace enters AFL Hall of Fame


    After a combined 501 games played and coached across three clubs, Terry Wallace has been inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday night.

    Wallace crossed to the Western Oval ahead of the 1988 season after three premierships, two Best and Fairest awards, and 174 games with Hawthorn, and a further eleven with Richmond in 1987.

    “Plough” as he was labelled by former teammate Russell Greene for the way he burrowed into packs, was a star at the Bulldogs, averaged 25 disposals per game over four seasons at the kennel, winning back to back Charles Sutton Medals in his first two seasons, and earning All-Australian selection in 1988.

    Known for his courage, passion and an uncanny knack for finding the football, Wallace was one of the premier centreman of his era when he retired in 1991 after a total of 254 games.

    In 1996, Wallace moved into the coaches box, taking over from Alan Joyce and lifting the Bulldogs from a 15th placed finish in 1996 to third the following season and four successive finals appearances.

    An innovative and creative coach, Wallace took the Dogs back-to-back preliminary finals in 1997 and 1998, and was named as coach of the All-Australian team that season.

    And it was Wallace’s use of the “super flood” in Round 21, 2000 that is credited for spoiling Essendon’s quest for the perfect season.

    Wallace resigned as coach in 2002 after 148 games in charge and a 54% winning percentage, and would finish his coaching career in 2009 after a further 99 games with Richmond.

    Re: AFL Hall of Fame

    If my maths is right then Plough had 254 games as a player and 257 games as a coach! Thats pretty consistent.

    I'm just waiting for Twodogs' disappointment when Kelvin Templeton is inevitably snubbed again.

    So you mean we can't claim Bulldogs legend Jason Akermanis?
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.
