I was born a Bulldog.
In 1982, Canterbury legend Steve Mortimer happened to be visiting my mum’s maternity hospital on the day I was born. My brother, a 9 year old Bulldogs fan, came to meet his new baby brother, and was decked head-to-toe in blue and white: jersey, shorts and socks. Mortimer heard about it and gave him a Bulldogs stick-pin to remember the day. I think he’s still got it. With a start like that, I had no choice, I was a Bulldog too.
Growing up, we spent plenty of Saturdays and Sundays watching the Bulldogs from the hill at Belmore. As a six-year-old I was beside myself when Canterbury won the Grand Final in 1988. I treasured the VHS tape of that game and watched it over and over I can still remember the tryscorers: Glen Nissen, Michael Hagan, Terry Lamb and David Gillespie.

To become a member of the Geelong Football Club you need a name, a birth date and an address.
In March 2007 my wife Rachel was in the family way. Thanks to an ultrasound, a planned caesar, and a stable household, for yet-to-be born Harvey I already had the three pieces of information. So with Rachel twenty weeks pregnant, Harvey became a member of the Geelong Football Club: in utero.
He is, to this day, officially the youngest ever member of the Cats.

THE Magpies are raging flag favourites, thanks to the Hawks fuelling their hunger on the eve of the AFL finals.
The Pies’ stinging loss to the Hawks in round 22 hurt like hell. Collingwood’s flat spot, on the eve of the finals, could prove to be the catalyst in their quest for the premiership.
The Hawthorn loss was the fuel the Magpies needed to brush off their famed losing mentality.

Big Bad Bazza - Barry Hall - has gone through the wringer and emerged as a new man, ironing out all those kinks. Who would have thought that Bazza could reverse his fortunes after one too many brainsnaps at the Sydney Swans?
Bazza - we were waiting for you to trip up again as a ferocious Bulldog. We were waiting for another almighty brainsnap.But it didn’t happen. Instead, Bazza treated us to high-flying marking and a string of match-winning goals. Bazza’s seven-goal haul in the NAB Cup grand final on Saturday night was legendary, elevating him to cult status.
Bulldogs’ fans – celebrate hard. It’s been 40 years since you charged your glasses to toast the Doggies as night premiers.
