    I read this

    Bulldogs star Josh Dunkley noted the way both Collingwood and St Kilda approached playing his team since, with their suffocating pressure curbing the Dogs' high-octane ball movement.

    However, Dunkley said they needed "to embrace that physical nature and push forward".


    and this

    "We've obviously had some history with the Giants, and 'Bevo' did mention that after the game," Dunkley told SEN radio on Tuesday.

    "We've got to sharpen the tools and it's going to be a big one – and we will come out with an intent and (be) physically fierce against the opposition.

    "Hopefully, that transforms into our footy and we play with some freedom and get a win."


    Am I missing something else?
    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.

    No, I don't listen to SEN. However the following written quote from Dunks is the same redepmtion/cracking in message since the EF:

    I am not interested in what they say (or how the media report), but I am very interested in what they actually do.

    It is about time they played like that was the important part of it all.

    Do we know for sure that the article on AFL.com is based on the SEN interview?

    I couldn't care less about what we say publicly. We'll know within 10 minutes on Friday if the players give actually give a crap about doing anything of note in 2020.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Ten minutes into the game Friday we looked OK, the next five minutes we'd have looked great if we had have kicked straight.

    What I want to see is some willingness to neutralise the game if we're up against it, rather than shit the bed and exacerbate any problem we're facing at the time triggering a blow out.

    I want four quarters of consistency and effort

    For real 3 games ago we got beat up pretty badly, but 5 games ago we beat them just as bad if not even worse. This is definitely not Mout Olympus we're talking about here.

    And they're not exactly flying themselves. We should be a huge chance at Marvel but I don't see us getting near them.

    If I'm reading all this right I'll expect at least $50,000 in fines and may be 4 suspensions.
    If that doesn't happen it's all talk.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    I expect them to win by around 30 - 40 points and I think the stage will be set pretty early on. I hope I'm proved so wrong on this. I hate the Giants so much.

    Re: 'It's going to be a big one': Dogs plan to get physical against arch-rival

    I expect a hard effort for a quarter and a half to a half. We’ll rue missed chances as usual and feel we should be a few goals up but will go into half time down a couple goals. They’ll then blow us away to win by around 7 goals.

    I think part of our problem is we lack motivation if the crowd and atmosphere isn’t there. Last year we lost the dull games against the poorer sides. Now with no crowds the boys can’t get themselves motivated. Why that is I have no idea

    I think the media will play it up as a redemption tale no matter what we say. I think we can beat them but really be great if we could just show intensity for the entire game, and take it on. Maybe the bad start is Bevo's cunning master plan so we come home with our sails wetted.
