So Marki...you have spoken to Daley. Who knows what the fekk he is thinking. Who cares for that matter. Hodkinson has been extremely ordinary in the kicking game department and it really is somewhat of a mystery. His line kicks are generally quite lengthy, when he is goal kicking you would have to say there has never been a sweeter striker of the ball and his field goal record, often under extreme opposition pressure is in a class of its own but fifth tackle options have been generally poor. Though I will repeat what I said a couple of weeks ago ....to some...who I may add a "mentally challenged" in front of...."when we win it is in spite of him....when we lose it is because of him"...

I think our club should stick with Hodko until we can develop a better No.7 from within our own Juniors ranks, trying to lure a genuine game breaking half from another club will prove even more elusive than our ongoing attempt to sign a top FB. DCE has put himself on the market and it looks like that his value will be over the $1m mark, only clubs who are not required to abide by the cap will be able to afford him, our club is not one of them.
SOO has done untold harm to our season, I am not aware of any other club that has suffered as much long term as a result of SOO, hopefully none of our players will ever get picked again.
For now Des and the coaching staff should concentrate on improving our 3 potential halves kicking game, it is important for any future success that one or two learn Sherwin's short kicking game.

BM...DCE is a great attacking player for sure but surprised none of the Hodko knockers mentioned how schite his defence is, a fact particularly obvious in last week's Manly v Parramatta game.

SOO cost a top 4 finish.
But it has not at this stage cost a place in the semi's or a loss in week 1 of the semi's.
IMO we should beat the Titians next week and make the semi's and we have at least a 50/50 chance of winning in week 1, and I recon that is a pass mark for this season.
I would be disappointed if the club uses SOO as an excuse if we don't make the semi's or get knocked out in week 1.

Our club is good at using any excuse to blame for our losses.

@stevennfi .. It's no mystery .. He can kick goals .. That's it.. Get over your obsession. I hope the club lets him go.

Oh Sherwin! Where are you Sherwin? I used to love that guy. From the moment he scored that try from the scrum against Melbourne in the semi in 1999 I knew he had it. Best short kicking game ever! What about when he destroyed Melbourne in 04 semi. Was a champion player.

@stevenfi .. Stuff repeat sets .. Maybe hodkickson can kick field goals At the end of every set .. Ala Johnny wilkinson ..

I wonder where someone like you would be if we were doing well. Just trying to work out what the opposite of a fairweather fan is...a foul weather fan perhaps. I wonder how you will be when Hodkinson is captain after Ennis leaves...whilst I actually think it will be Tolman it would be great to see someone like you if Hodkinson was made captain.

If we sign a top class fullback we should be OK with Lichaa, Hodko, Mbye/Reynolds next year.
For this year we will go better with Reynolds back in the side and hopefully Pritchard and/or Browne back in at some stage.
We should try to develop/sign some good young halves and a back up/insurance policy.
Hodko can do a job if the rest of the team is going well, he is no Thurston, Cronk or DCE but we probably can't get those guy's or a similar player, and even if we could be may not be able to afford them.
However, if there is a young guy at the club that looks the goods and Hodko is not delivering ...... then the young guy deserves a shot.

We are doing well ??.. Aren't we stevie?!??Stop trying to work things out .. You don't have the mental aptitude. I'm no longer a follower of the game in its present state. Love the dogs but not this breed and that's my right as a fan. To be blindly agreeing to all things Bulldogs is really cute of you(lapdog supporter) but don't let that make you think your a better supporter than anyone else.. I've got close ties to Tolman and that would be fine by me if he was made captain .. The only person dreaming of Hodko is you stevie. Kinda creepy of you really!!

@hounddog there is a young guy, I just wish he was 3 years older .... Will Kerr. No way we can afford a superstar half.

I will say it again, Zero tackle is a rubbish site and anyone who believes the rumours on there has no idea.

Great to see Parra lose..... the Dragons + Parra or the Broncos should miss the 8.
It would be great if they all miss "Go Warriors" ....... as long as we don't need to play them in the semis.

Old man Bennett seems to have the Knights firing at the end of the season ..... if they had made the semis they may have been dangerous........

If those young blokes are called Matty Utai .. they belong at the Dogs .... whats going on there?
We should have copyrighted the name....

How long has Tony Williams got left on his contract?

I see the Hodko knockers are again infiltrating and undermining his value. I like the bloke and I would like to see him stay. If there ever was a chance that he ever read any of the comments in here this would be my advice to him...... Make enquiries and get Brent Sherwins phone number, give him a call and ask him to teach you the ropes on general play kicking. Do this and guaranteed you will have every club in the NRL waiting for your contract to expire... Also some advice for the Hodkos knockers.. Lay off he is doing a great job. Without him we may have sitting in a much less desirable position on the NRL ladder.

ODF, the likes of GLTD are witless morons. They have blinkers. Mind you GLTD (trying to work out the abbreviation...got the Gay Lad but not the TD). I am sure things will come together. The injury list this year was bad. Tony Williams would have 2 years left.

@Olddogfan agree on hodkinson 
OldDogFan

OldDogFan

Thanks Steve. The reason I asked is that T-Rex is consuming a good part of our cap and nothing against the bloke, I just see that two $300G youngsters would but more valuable to us. @bulldogsette I see Hodkinson will just improve as time passes, mark my words (especially if he takes my advice)

Hodkinson had the pressure of being the matchwinner in SOO 1 and then expected to replicate that for the DOgs for the rest of the reason . At least Hodko was available to be picked . In some ways Reynolds is more to blame by getting himself suspended then injured and has not played a minute since Origin 3 .

Look and I certainly don't mean to pick on either of these boys I just reckon Origin fried them
