    Read the comments from Greenburg about it being a "clever play on words" (Really? That's as clever as you get out Belmore way?) and how it's all part of "being in the entertainment business" and nearly retched into my keyboard. What an A-grade wanker. I hope Des is enjoying the extra wheelbarrows of cash he's made out of this whole debacle.

    How is it a clever slogan? It just highlights that the Bulldogs don't have a winning culture so they had to try & import one.

    It just reinforces the aspirational aspect of our brand.

    May not be that clever the slogan itself but it is good marketing. Good on them.

    May the best team win. Remembering its just a game for gods sake.

    Seriously good marketing - no wonder Des was enticed to go to such a cutting edge professionally run organisation.

    Didn't they have one like that a couple of years ago that said - Be a Bronco be a Bulldog?

    And how does this slogan resonate with female bulldog's fans...

    I think using another team as part of your marketing is crap.

    I bet our club wishes they had thought of the opposite first:
    "Don't be a dog, Be Manly"

    All good fun and a money-spinner.

    They should just stick to being Bulldogs. Drool a lot and sniff each others arses.

    Really? Your insinuation is disgusting, and reveals plenty about you[hr]
    They will sell a truck load of them, based on the early days of this thread you can see they got the desired result. No one should come crying onto this forum when they are confronted by someone at this game wearing this shirt trying to stir you up, smile say "very clever" and move on.

    They will make extra $ from this that were previously unbudgeted, well done.

    There is a fair argument for and against using a competitor within your marketing

    Form a pure revenue generation stand point this is smart (much like the save brookie t's the club printed a few years ago)
