    Who Are We? (2018-19 Off Season Quiz Thread)

    The last few years we've been running the 'Who am I' thread? It's been getting easier and we have just about done everyone. So I've tweaked the concept to include two or more players to make it a bit more lively, I.e. 'Who are we?'

    This might include two or more Bulldogs players, or 1+ Bulldogs player and 1+ opposition player. It might be an onfield event, a connection through family, something a few/couple of players did off field. You get to work out the complexity of your question, should you win the right. For example, "Who are we? One of us took mark of the year on top of the head of the other player in 2001?

    Answer: Brad Johnson (sore head), Gary Moorcroft (mark of the year, 2001).

    Now the live question: Who are we? Footscray traded Michael Martin to Brisbane for a player a draft pick used on selecting another player. Thus the dogs landed two players out of that trade by the end of the draft. Who are we?




    As per usual, using Google or Wikipedia for answers defeats the purpose. But for questions, feel free.

    As per usual, the winner gets to ask the next question. And then has a few hours to get the question up, or a question goes up in its place to keep the thread moving.

    I'll help this along, I'm confident the player is Trent Bartlett. I'm not sure of the other player though although I suspect it was one of the class of 1999

    I think that Hargrave might have been the player drafted with the pick. So lock in Hargrave & Bartlett.

    It wasn't Murphy so that leaves Giansiracusa, Hahn, Wiggins, Gilbee and Bowden I think.

    No to Gilbs. A hint, we got a good pick in the trade.

    From memory we picked up Hahn & Hargrave in the Cameron trade to Richmond.

    I think it was the Gia pick 32 + Bartlett

    My favourite thread! This, cricket, EPL and oxy is what gets me through Christmas...
    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Who am I?

    I made my debut as a 22 yo mature age recruit and by the time I was 26 my career with the bulldogs was over. Despite this I was able to achieve some considerable accomplishments including one record that stands to this day. Additionally, in my draft, myself and another bulldogs draftee would go on to be in the top 5 most games played in the AFL from all players selected in our draft.

    Prior to my career with the Bulldogs I had tried out with them as a junior only to be rejected for being too fat and too slow. I would play VFA on either side of my time with the Dogs and would also play in the SANFL. Once again achieving some great heights.

    My first instinct is Danny Del Re but I don't know if he played SANFL.

    you win

    Danny Delre it is.

    He won the Ken Farmer medal for booting 97 goals in the 1995 season. The year after he finished with us. He played with Williamstown on either side of his AFL/SANFL career

    He would kick 8 goals in the semi vs Geelong in 1992. A record for most goals by a Bulldogs player in a final that still stands today. He had a purple patch mid 1992 when in successive weeks he destroyed Langford from Hawthorn booting 5 goals, then rag dolled Alistair lynch from Fitzroy booting 6 (5 in 1 1/4 from memory) then 7 against anyone whoever came near him from Melbourne. Was our leading goalkicker in 1992 & 1993

    Alrighty then. A test to see who else has watched this moment over and over:

    We are the four players involved in Marcus Bontempelli's preliminary final goal, not including the man himself.
