    The Bulldogs played 4 finals in 2016. The free kick count in those games were:

    Bulldogs 17 Eagles 13

    Bulldogs 19 Hawthorn 14

    Bulldogs 23 Giants 13

    Bulldogs 20 Swans 8

    They won the free kick count in all 4 games and the further they advanced, the more they won the free kick count by.

    Yep....it was a case of 'all aboard the fairypup train'! Sickening.

    Speaking of the GF itself, I have never watched a replay and I never will.

    Foxtel had the 2016 GF on this week which I recorded but could only watch a couple of minutes before giving up. My TV was in grave danger. Much better watching the scratch match yesterday against GWS.

    Yep. The writing was on the wall when Jack was cleaned up late after taking a mark and no 50 metres was paid. He should have taken his kick from the goal line.
    Those who have the greatest power to hurt us are those we love.

    Good luck to him but I reckon we were more than patient with him. 30 games in 9 years and 3 knee reconstruction. He was very good when fit but that wasn't very often. It's ironic that he has teamed up with Nankervis who we traded because we rated Naismith higher.

    No. But that's not the choice we had. We could have kept the crayfish at that time and jettisoned Clark or Wicks or Gould.

    None of those are rucks, you can only hold so many on the list at one time

    Everyone loves Sam and wishes him the best, but we held on to him for a couple seasons too long if anything given his injury issues
