    I wouldn't mind if he played for us.

    You know that I often say we looking to recruit good coaches or players or admins and not best friends and their personal qualities don't really enter into it. But you have to draw the line somewhere.

    If that arseclown turned up at our club I would fair dinkum spew up!

    Re: Famous Bulldog supporters

    My recollection is he maybe is from Melton, or surrounds. Think he played for Keilor.

    Edit : He was living in Melton when drafted.

    Re: Famous Bulldog supporters

    Him being from Melton (and I married a Melton girl!) explains a lot. He would have been residentially bound to us before drafting days.

    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I can work out who all the players and coaches are except for the one standing behind Can Wight
    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.
