    Not that you know of, but don't open the wardrobe door too wide tonight.

    Besides, we know it wasn't you that I quoted, because that particularly handsome guy said something critical about the Bulldogs .

    So at the start of the year we were hopeful but also commented about if we were going well Bevo is safe if we weren’t he should go.
    Well round 6 and we are 3-3 and still no idea on whether we are good or bad.
    If that isn’t the life of a bulldog supporter what is ?
    You want to be a bulldog supporter I hope your a 50/50 person in life.

    Good point.

    I feel like we've had years of having no idea if this team is legit or not. And it feels the same yet again despite any pre season predictions.

    At the start of the year I would've predicted 3-3 and would've thought that was OK. Losses to dees, cats and saints but wins over suns, Eagles and bombers.

    What does that mean? Well I suppose we're a middling team. But are we? The freo game will tell us everything right!?

    Johnno is a complete ****en dullard sometimes and I knew that would come back to bite us.

    What a dumbshit.

    Wilson basically denying knowledge of appearances of people at the club in HER INDUSTRY is classic Caroline Wilson. Whatever Kornes says is to be taken with a grain of salt, omitting actual facts and using a megaphone to blast your opinion across multiple platforms is actually making it personal if your targeting doesn't change.

    I didn’t have a problem with what Johnno said. What’s the issue? “Bevo is ok at the moment”? Do we know what he was responding to? May have been clip chimped

    What a moron he is. Every year he makes up a story about Bevo, every single year.

    Not being smart enough to know how it would be weaponised against the coach of the club he played for and employs him on a part time basis.

    Fair call. I'd love to say the media doesn't affect the club but if they have approached Caro about her reporting i guess it does.

    In essence Johnno epitomised what is wrong with the football media. If a coach doesn't talk in the merest of clich?s or dumb things down to a severely basic level, the football media can't understand or process what's beings said.

    Bevo definitely had a shit press conference after the Essendon game, but all year outside of that he's been clear with his selection reasoning and strategy, and has enacted it on field. Johnno played into the Kano theory of bizarre selections playing out, as if they hadn't been explained thoroughly.

    And I get nobody has to agree with the selections, but calling fully reasoned and explained selections bizarre is essentially why the attacks on Beveridge are personal. Outside of interpretive dance, I'm not sure what the guy can do to articulate his reasoning any further.

    Bevo does talk in a way that means you’ve sometimes gotta listen to what he says a couple of times to get it. But I don’t think he’s been contradictory this season. Form and our game plan have dictated selection. Simple.

    Well there is one player who is playing and hasn’t performed and that’s Sanders, if he was another player as a mid fielder and only got 6 possessions ? In 3/4 he wouldn’t be playing.
