Bulldog media bashing has been a favourite past time from certain media people and outlets for 30 years or so. Basically began during the Ryan years . Even he critics the club himself sometimes on ABC. Surprised people are still stunned and shocked what is written.
Anyway I think Dessie has finally found the Dogs of War we like too see. 2012 was probably a lucky year on the back of Barba, 2013 too many distruptions. I liike the new young forwards now Klemmer, Jackson , Browne , Burr, finucane . Reminds me of the Langmack and co early years.

@Anna they bought the shop for $1,056,000 so it is here to stay. The are renovating out the back and then will do the front. Should have completed them before opening as it looks terrible. Will save money in the long run with no huge rent money. I am sure the idea is to get people to come to the shop and then go the Leagues Club.

Instead of spending over $1mil why couldn't they have the shop in the Leagues Club like they used to? Too simple a solution I suppose.

So just to confirm... Is the Bulldogs store in Centro still there or not?

What about the one in Bankstown square?? Honestly I can't believe they renamed Bankstown Square "Centro".....iconic widely recognised shopping centre. No wonder Centro was on the skids. F***wits incorporated...actually probably a more dynamic name than "Centro".

Isn't it bankstown Central now

What ever it is now doesn't matter.....that is the point...when someone changes the name of something so iconic you have to question why. It would be roughly the equivalent of changing coca cola to "yak's p***"

With Des I think the focus on the lower grades is on developing players, not winning comps.
That is why Lloyd Perrett and many other players from last years NYC are playing NSW cup.
Which is probably why we are struggling in the lower grades at present as young players need time adjust to a higher standard.

That mostly explains the NYC, but in NSW cup we should be going much better. Some of the ex-NRL players in the team seem to be under performing and you wonder if their attitude is right.

My impression is the current NYC coach looks like a good coach, but has probably taken over the side at a bad time, The NYC side seems to be lacking props, direction from the halves and some players don't seem to up to it defensively. If/when Cox is back he will improve the side.

Houndog its worth noting that average form in NSW cup doesn't necessarily equate to failure or average form when promoted to first grade.
Some players like Lafai look like they going through the motions in Cup, yet when they move up to firsts, they kill it.
I think Inu is a similar type player. He is better suited to NRL than Cup. It's a shame that his attitude problems are preventing him from selected ahead of Mitch Brown.

@Marki I agree but it still would be a good idea for players to have a dig in NSW cup if they want to play NRL. It is probably just a mental thing... they can't get excited about playing NSW cup.

While the NRL squad is going well at the moment, I do agree we need to find a a bit more if we want to win the comp. One of the improvements could be Inu and Stanley on the wings.

In a lot of seasons the team that wins the comp shows their winning hand in around round 20.
So there is plenty of time to find our best combination.

Once again. The reason Inu isn't playing first grade in front of Mitch Brown is because Des sees him as a centre not a winger. In today's game I tend to agree that the positions are quite different and agree with Des on this one.

Actually Inu is not named in the NSW cup side this week.

That's because he is suspended

@annav3 we need a six star hotel in Belmore so that we can wine and dine prospective player recruitment targets who we then send downgraded documents to because we've changed our minds .

@annav3 They are really worried about the pokie revenue which has only risen about 2% over the last 10 years. Although they are finally debt free from the last renovations they are going to go into debt again big time and if they say $100m I'm sure it will blowout like most big projects.

I am sure tourists from all over the world will want to come to beautiful downtown Belmore:)) The rates will gave to be sky high to help pay back the debt. I think you know who the Einsteins are.

As for NSW cup, their performance last week was disgraceful. The defence was worse than a 20s game. No excuse for the lack of effort they showed.

So we won't be seeing three NSW Cup premierships in a row for a longtime ?;)
I was just getting use to it .

NSW cup serves as a way to get players match fit without getting injured . The coaches tell Sam Kasiano look get some miles in the legs don't go into too hard so you don't get injured . OK ?
Same with Eastwood . Same with Inu they don't want him injured in case they need him .
For the fringe first graders they have to play well enough to stay on the radar but they don't want a injury so that they disappear from view . So NSW cup is this weird alternate football reality that isn't quite real . Why people obsess about it is beyond me .

@Balso don't go too hard because you will get injured hahaha!
