Isn't that a shame. I'm heartbroken for the poor bloke.

I wonder if Dibs mates will follow him and the Bulldogs lose a little bit of power and support from associated corporates?

I believe the statement regarding the 3 muscateers is correct. Hasler was a fan of brookes though and may have been talked out of it. Make of that what you will.
When you mentioned the 3 Muscateers I thought that you were talking about Dib, Politis and Greenberg.

Musketeers, as in the rifle.

Unless they are big fans of either Oman and/or grapes?

A bulldogs supporter mate of mine is furious that the old board is gone.
His expecting this governance change to really ruffle some feathers and impact the teams performance throughout the season.
Word was all the players and a couple of high profile players have publicly backed the old board and Ray Dib.
There’s going to be a coming power struggle between the football club and the leagues club the loss of Dib will mean the loss of certain corporate support and league governance power.
Change may necessarily be a good thing this time around.

Bulldogs are a Basketcase.
I haven’t heard much out of Hooper this offseason. Is he pretending to support the Tigers while chucking mud at the club every chance he gets?
in Ivan we distrust

I think Munk that you meant "..we reap what we sow", unless you meant tearing Aarons Tigers sewn jacket off his back?

BBF . . . . There simply isn't enough time to correct the grammar, spelling and punctuation in this forum.
The season kicks off in just a few short weeks. Best to just leaved it alone ;)

Dib has been punted. Only current board member to retain position is Steve Mortimer.
Who else saw Mortimer add a stack of Grit to our team when he was personal trainer. I think he came in 2011, either way he seemed to do a stack to build the young guys up. Not sure if he still had the enthusiasm and had it for our team, but I felt he was an asset.

Poor Aaron
The bulldogs were 100% in firing Raelene and firing their board. The aim was totally wrong, sure get yourself to the finals but do it the way Manly did and build a strong club. Don't build a flight lounge. I get that James Graham was a little past his prime and that Reynolds may have not been the exact direction the bulldogs were heading in. But team clubs keep their average to good players and build around them, flight decks move in superstars.

The old board made decisions that look bad in hindsight, like renewing Haslier's contract then firing him (not that we haven't done that before), but I get that they needed coach stability. Their real failing is not recognising the importance of Culture and club spirit over rushing to the finals at any cost.

Clubs last hundreds of years, a finals appearance is 1. Don't neglect your membership and swap away club heroes.
