What happens to Foran if Des gets removed, they are calling for his head. I would imagine Foran might of put a Des clause in his contract.

Des just got a new contract.. $1.5m a season is the rumoured number.
The star of the team is the team.

If he doesn't deliver they will punt him. Dogs have a lot of money and they will not hesitate to punt Des if he's not living up to their expectations, despite his previous achievements.

Interesting times at the Dogs.Money not as bigger problem as lack of success - but re- signing Des a few weeks ago certainly puts them in an awkward position after a shocking loss like that. I will be surprised if they sack him now, however he will have very little time to steady the ship - next year if in fact he still there.

They've gone as far as they are going to go under Des. Both he and the club would benefit from a fresh start. They'll have basically the same squad next year, throwing in Foran and Woods. Anyone really think the bearded buffoon is going to turn the Dogs into contenders?

Nope he won't . But they are banking on the mercenary, gambling, deathbed bully Foran to be their saviour. Good luck with that, he's really got the Warriors firing on all cylinders this year.

Alright I'm going to bite here, his abuse of Bourbon Becky was justified the moment she started speculating about the parentage of his children in the media. She deserved everything she got from him, dying or not.

I didnt have them in my top 8 this year and i don't think they will make it next year. They have an ageing team on heavy contracts and their young players on big coin (mbye) havent kicked on. Foran is a shadow of his former self and they will lose 2 or 3 key forwards to fit woods in. Hasler was re signed on the back of foran signing only if he was coach. The game has moved past des just like it did with sheens. Their CEO has just been forced out and the board has elections next march. Good luck sharon at your new, no drama club lol.

And she didn't mind throwing mud at Johhny Mannah when he was dying, or had already died either. Just because you are dying or are dead does not make you a good person. She's definitely not missed.

Never said she was a good person. Had no time for her views more often than not. Foran is a definite scumbag though. He obviously didn't enjoy being called out over a few of his dubious off-field exploits (which were all VERY hastily swept under the rug once he played the mental health card as per usual) and took to abusing a person on their deathbed. To me that isn't on. The bloke seems like a shifty deceitful coward who couldn't lie straight in bed, he will be looking for the big early exit out of the Bulldogs once they are hovering around the bottom of the ladder next season and the knives are out for him. Which they will be there is no question.

Considering it was reported that Bourbon Becky kept her illness to her close family I am not sure how Foran was to know that she was dying? Yeah fair enough he's not quite a cleanskin but I don't look down on him for giving that piece of work the spray she so rightfully deserved. As if you wouldn't have gone to town on her if she was writing that your kids weren't yours.

Dean Pay talking to the Telecrap yesterday mentioned Foran twice and Mbye once, and about developing their juniors.
Not one word about Woods, he'd be heartbroken.

Perhaps Pay knows what Woods will bring in terms of consistency, like him or not Woods plays at a reasonably high standard week after week.
Foran and Mbye are a week to week proposition, good one day hopeless the next. Woods will be a solid contributor for the Bulldogs next year you can be sure, he will go well.

You gotta feel for the former fake captain. You could tell he really formed a close relationship with Cleary, and couldn't have made it more obvious that he regretted having to leave. Now he has to form a new relationship with a new coach, whose untested at NRL level, at a new club that isn't looking like they have much to offer in 2018. Or you don't have to feel for him.

So does anybody know why Woods and Foran's contracts have not been lodged and signed off by the NRL. Is is just around cap issues? Has Woods only signed a Heads of Agreement? If so, puts him in a very difficult position if the Dogs pull the pin on him or the NRL don't sign of on the contract.

The NRL have refused to register their contracts until the Bulldogs get under the cap.

I read somewhere recently that their current contracted 'star players' are refusing to be moved on so the bulldogs lesser players are being pushed out. I can't see how that can possibly work though and keep their player quota.
If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse
