    It could have easily been is in the Dogs shoes yesterday and to be honest I think it would have been a similar result.

    Would you rather have been there and lost the GF to Souths or was it better going out the way we did?

    I think you are right @torana355

    The only thing that gets me is people thinking the Bulldogs had a better year than us...

    They were already forgotten before the game...at least, that was the impression I got from the media's shamefully biased coverage of the GF. Channel 9 appeared to mention them only as an afterthought in the otherwise uninterrupted Souths love fest: "oh yeah, there's another team in this too...what were they called again?" :dodgy:

    While quite a lot of our squad deserved to be there, the behavior of others told me they didn't deserve it, so no. At least the Bulldogs looked united off the field.

    I think we would have also been belted if we had played.

    The vermin stepped up against us in August and again in the finals where we were a distinct 2nd best.

    We could not match their power game and that is something that we really need to improve in 2015

    Would I rather get to the Grand Final and lose? No.

    Getting over a semi-final loss takes about 10 mins. Getting over a GF loss takes the whole off-season...

    At full strength, in form, we beat them. I just think we are better across the park, even if our forwards are a little light on.

    However... I'm struggling to think of a single game where we played 80 minutes with a full strength squad. I'm damn sure we didn't put in a single 80 minute performance this year?? A few great halves yes, but no truly strong 80 minute game.

    Put Gift, Buhrer, Ballin and Watmough in our squad.. Heck add in Fa'aoso whom we lost before a whistle was blown and we are a strong squad, backed up with a classy backline..

    Alas, it never happened. 2014, the season that "could have, should have, would have" been :(

    Someone made the point that the Dogs will go into NRL history as the team Souths beat to break their GF drought.
    No one wants that title.
