    Reminds me of Easton Wood in his athletic traits and the fact he isn't a natural footballer, will take more time. He will be worth the wait this kid.

    That's honesty right there, and very gutsy from him and his family to bring that to light as there's a stigma around people not being able to put a roof over their heads.

    We're living through a period where one in three people are experiencing food insecurity, and housing stress is at an all time high. Stories like this help bring the struggles to light, when politicians and the media overly concern themselves with gender and identity politics or whatever to help their sponsors and donors avoid sacrificing some of the record sized portions of the pie they're currently feasting on.
    Nobody's looking for a puppeteer in today's wintry economic climate.

    Re: Welcome Dominic Bedendo to the Western Bulldogs

    Knowing Dom's past could shine a bit of a light on a few things. He was VERY skinny when he was drafted, and he bulked up quite quickly given where he started. I wonder if he was finally able to afford the protein he needed to add mass.

    Simply staggering he made it onto a list from those difficult situations. Shows a lot of tenacity and grit. Gee whiz, I really hope this kid makes it.

    Yes. Well said. It would be great to see people (and especially our leaders) focus on what actually makes a difference and moves the needle rather than the constant focus on how they will be percieved.

    An inspirational story. From humble beginnings making it to the AFL. I hope Dom succeeds with us.

    You can achieve things as long as you put in the work and put your mind to it.

    A brilliant interview tonight on the Channel 9 News. A remarkable achievement to make League football from such a humble background. I met him and his family on arrival at the WB. Has been enjoying a brilliant early preseason winning the time trials.
    Would be great to see him become a star in 2024.

    Fantastic for him and his mum to have his AFL contract, hopefully he can keep up his early pre season form and make it a lengthy career.

    Also a reminder of how horrible homelessness can be, how widespread it is, and how wide-sweeping it can be in its targets.

    Also I struggle to just sit back and watch nepo baby Xander with his prime time news gig.

    Having watched Dom in VFL I was already a fan. After watching that heartwarming story I’ll be buying a Bedendo badge and barracking even louder for him to succeed.

    Sorry, I don't know who Xander is. The only guy I know who has earned his spot on prime time TV is Shervo because he has a massive dong.........so I'm told, because I've just always thought he was really talented.

    He is Eddie McGuire's son. All down to hard work and determination I'm sure. How many 20 year old sports reporters are there?
