TBH getting rid of Des has probably made it a more stable club than if he stayed. The dogs don't stay down long.
Spot on. The Dogs will be a stronger club next year without Des being there, they had become stale under him.
With the salary cap situation, i doubt it. Their roster looks average. If their cap clears up for 2019, they might be back if they enter the player market.
A very underperforming squad this year but with a few new faces and a new coach I can see them going well.
Agree.
If Des was still the coach next year every single loss would of been met with innuendo about whether he should be punted from the club or not. The new coach will get a bit of a honeymoon period to settle in.
Not sure about all the talk surrounding Dean Pay and his "Bulldog DNA"........ he left the Bulldogs for more money to sign with Parra back in his playing days. He is just as much a mercenary as Des.

I agree. They've swapped Reynolds for Foran. A slight upgrade maybe but Foran's 2017 wasn't great.
They've swapped Graham and Kasiano for Woods. At best a push. Woods is an excellent prop but they've given up a lot.
More to the point they've given up two of their heart and soul players. Plus maybe more losses to come. They' went poorly this year and would need to lift to make an impact next year.

Absolutely, they don't take mediocrity for long, they do something about it.

But, but its the Bulldogs, they don't stay down for too long.

The smart money if anyone looks past that nonsense and actually looks at their roster is that they are in for a tough year next year. After that, it depends on who they can afford on the market. They have the spine of a paramecium.

The big difference with the Dogs is that they won't wallow at the bottom of the NRL for a prolonged amount of time like some clubs do. It won't be long before they are back in top 8 country again. Dessi needs a break away from The game.

The irony of Shazza not wanting to sign for WT until he knew who the coach was going to be next year, signs with dogs and doesn't know who his coach will be next year

When you look what Cleary did with our roster at the back end of the season, than there is no reason a new coach with new ideas can not get the Dogs up again in 2018. They have enough quality in there roster to turn things around. Okay on paper there spine looks average, but things can turn around quickly. As others have said the Dogs are never down for long

Moving on Reynolds and Graham and getting rid of Des at the same time is probably the change the club needed to move forward. All great servants to the club but they got the best that they were able to give. A fresh approach to the start of the season can only be a good thing.
Might be short a couple of players next year to make a real impact, but like others dont think they will be down for long, if at all.

So Tigers cut an under-performing coach with a year to go and we are "basket cases" and we accept mediocrity, but Dogs do it and it's a strong signal?

They just extended the bloke's contract, then ran him through a few months later with 2 years to run. It's gonna cost them plenty, the only difference between this and the Tim Sheens situation of 2012 is that Dogs can afford to pay multiple coaches.

Also did you read apparently the Des Hasler contract extension for 2018+ was non-binding? I look forward to the court battle.

What if the new coach doesn't want Woods...?

If the coaches contract wasn't binding, what makes us think all the others are?

Some tough times coming up for the dogs...in the court room too lol

Supposedly signed a heads of agreement and not a contract.

They'll struggle next year IMO. 2019 will be a different story though, they don't spend too long in the wilderness.
