    Re: Doug Hawkins reveals fallout from strained relationship with Bulldogs president Peter Gordon

    This article is a piece of collected quotes from Doug's interview on the latest episode of the Herald Sun's podcast 'Sacked'.

    I loved Dougie growing up, and he probably was treated unkindly in the manner of his exit at the end of 94, but I get the impression Dougie also loves to feel hard done by.
    I also accept he might not be doing too well cash wise these days, given he's now spinning stop-go signs for the roads department. It's therefore understandable he might be trying to be controversial to try and earn some extra coin on what is a podcast all about that kind of stuff.
    I just wish he'd bloody stop talking about himself in the 3rd person when he does these sorts of things. He comes across as very self-centred and full of himself.

    Have you heard what some of those guys earn? I don't reckon he would be doing too bad. Plus I keep seeing him on TV flogging doors.

    A female friend of my wife stopped working at a solicitor's office due to pressure and took up spinning stop signs. Her wage with overtime just over $100,000. Doug should be able to live on that.

    A gap between the club and Doug Hawkins does not sit well with me.

    He's actually got a decent football brain. His time playing the clown on the early series' of the Footy Show really hurt the public perception of him

    He's certainly not your arrogant past footy star who thinks he's above people. Very approachable, friendly guy in my experience.

    Loves it. Specially since Tom came into the team.

    That's with a lot of overtime and not just spinning the sign. It's digging holes and avoiding idiots who don't pay attention to 40kmh zones. My dad did line marking on the roads of Footscray for nearly 30 years. It's his horrific memories that make me slow down when I see the roadworks sign no matter who s sitting on my tail or how close they are.

    Those workers earn every cent.

    Came to my uncle's 80th birthday. Not sure if it was a paid appearance or not but they got their money's worth it it was. Doug stayed for hours and didn't just mumble a few platitudes and make for the entrance. He'd done his homework on my uncle and spoke as if he'd known him for years. Which might actually be the truth.

    Point is Doug is a pretty good bloke.
    WASH YOUR HANDS!!!

    Ridiculous salary when you think of our teachers and services people like Nursing, Police, Firey etc

    Agree entirely. There you have workers on the wharves being handsomely paid. Depends who you know and keep it in the family. Not sure if it is still like that.

    Doug = Bulldog Legend.

    Being born in the late 80s I didn’t see him play but from what our supporters and general football people say he was an excellent player.

    Also Doug seems to be a down to earth guy someone you can chat with having a beer in the pub.

    Yeah it seems that way.

    I love Doug, he was a great footballer and footscray person, but this article just seems a little premeditated to me. Why bring this up in a public forum. Sad
