    Does the current situation at the dogs have you thinking their 2013 campaign could be derailed like 2005 dogs and 2009, 2012 manly seasons due to off field issues? The biting issue will have a negative impact on their off season too.

    Heres hoping for a poor year.

    Karma's a b****

    Im not sure external factors would necessarily derail them. Hasler should be able to turn stuff like that into the seige mentality thing.

    But I tell you what might do it. I noticed on one occassion Barba screaming swearing at players because they overran him & I saw two others turn against their own teammates when things wernt going right on the field. The players didnt exactly look relaxed and buddy buddy off the field yesterday either.

    Might be that things arnt as rosy, cosy and family (cough) orientated as that club might like.

      I think Barba was berating Pritchard for not getting onside when he wanted to take a quick tap restart. It will be even funnier next year when he has to wait for T Rex as well.

        They'll have more logs playing for them than a Canadian forest

        Well I have to admit, my year has been great even though we didn't go back to back.

        The slime win the wooden spoon and the scumdogs lost the grand final and are self destructing, couldn't have happen to a nicer family (my arse) club.

        Lets see Greenturd talk his way out of this one.

        Yeah i was laughing at that. Pritchard is still very lazy no doubt. And as you said with T-rex joining, Dessie will have his work cut out in that department. But if they're both firing their pack will be hard to stop.

        If they start off 2013 in a bad way the club will just pull out the cheque book and buy a few more players from other clubs mid campaign. Best way to start winning without the hard work.

        Agreed. No rest or place to hide for them next year.

        I've seen Barba doing that all year, there's no way it can be good for team morale. But what can they do about it when they would lose every game without him.

        In that sense, the Dogs remind me a little of Parra when Haine was firing. And it's plain to see what happens when he isn't. Every club has their key personnel but the dogs are dangerously exposed with their reliance on Barba for *everything* in attack.

        I read somewhere else that Hasler wanted to take over the football operations completely. Uh oh....it begins!

        As I posted the other day all is not well between Greenberg and Hasler they have fallen out, 2013 at the bulldogs will be compelling viewing.

        Hasler is a great coach but he comes with baggage.
