How much is that Doggy in the window?

May 5th 2008 11:46
The cashed-up Bulldogs appear to be in the market for any and every player coming off contract. They have shown interest in a variety of players in varying positions, which may lead many Bulldogs supporter to question whether this scatter gun approach is going to bring them the success on the field that they have been use to in the past.

Over the last few months, the Bulldogs have had more misses than hits, missing out on high profile players such as Israel Folau, Jeff Lima and Matt Cooper. The only new recruit that recently signed is young Dragons winger/centre, Josh Morris. Not the type of key signing Bulldogs fans are expecting.

The feedback on ‘The Kennel’, the Bulldogs online fan forum, is one of disappointment. ‘Bulldogs miss out again’ one thread laments. ‘Kevin Moore is why no one is coming” states another.

There was once a time when playing for the Canterbury Bulldogs was a move that would ultimately lead recruits to representative honours, semi final action and grand final glory.

Players want to play with winning clubs and over the last few years, the Bulldogs have not played well enough to make an impact in the competition. The sudden loss of key players such as Willie Mason has not helped their cause in 2008.

The Bulldogs will reign again, however the re-building process must not solely include purchasing any player that is off contract. The process must involve identifying and nurturing talent from within their stable, which has been the cornerstone of their success in the past, in conjunction with strategic purchases of players available on the open market.

I definitely didn't expect this when I clicked the blog title. I have a Hub titled the same, so I figured your blogwould be a similar post. Ha
