Is the way the game is being run right now just a debacle I've followed the game since the early 80's and I've never seen it in so much flux with regards to rules, rule interpretations, handling of salaries, signings, club identity etc etc etc. Its doing my head in. I wonder if Gallop is trying to destroy the game so it merges with rugby or something. All of a sudden you have teams playing out of generic stadiums with generic identities, players and coaches bouncing between clubs before while they are still at their previous clubs, and rules that are changing well...towards fugby. Examples include the no scrum, the never tacked rule, and the turning a plopping the ball out the back. All rugby style crap. Throw in the gravitation towards corporate boxed stadiums and elimination of suburban identity and there it is. Ripe for the pickings. What they have done to the Bulldogs is a disgrace. The team lost all its stars, plays in a sterile stadium, and has no identity. I hate the Bulldogs like any Manly fan, but this could easily happen to us in future as it nearly did already. No wonder SBW left - why would he want to play amongst that?. I'm no league scholar, but its plain as he big nose on my face that the guy is ruining the game.
