Sporting P-correctness 

BB, while I appreciate what you are saying, I think it's more likely that the coaches subscribe to the "what goes around comes around" theory. If a team is respectful and shows humility it makes it that much harder for another team to find a mental weakness on which to prey. 

Remember comments like "bruise free football" and Dawes saying something to the effect that Hawthorn were gettable? Those sorts of statements don't show respect or humility and can rebound against those who say them.

On the downside, if showing respect and humility means saying nothing at all in order to avoid saying anything even remotely "controversial", the media will probably just make something up to try and create something. (Insert here off-topic comment that I'm glad Rebel Wilson won her defamation action.)

What I enjoyed most about this, is that Bugg wasn't even playing on JJ. 

True. Melksham destroyed him instead!

That is not correct as a free kick can be paid before the game starts.

15.1.3 When a Free Kick May be Awarded

A Free Kick may be awarded when the football is or is not in play. For the avoidance of doubt, a Free Kick may be awarded:

(a) if an infringement occurs on the Playing Surface before the commencement of a quarter, in which case the Free Kick shall be taken at the Centre Circle or where the infringement occurred, whichever is the greater penalty against the offending Team; and

If that's the case you can add it to the long line of umpiring stuff ups this season.

Secret is to use that tactic sparingly. 

Pick your target at the right time for Max Power

Indeed.

This won't work every week. Send a tweet to Joel Selwood or Luke Hodge and they will square up later. Just out of the umpire's view. And then they will get on with the game.

A friend of mine is a Doggies supporter and he liked a post by the official Bulldogs page so it came up on my feed. Reading through the posts most Doggies fans claim we won because of the umpires. I guess even the supporters are suffering from a hangover.

The next time there is even the slightest arrogance from any player should be during September, but be ready to play a blinder.

Whatever Bugg did, it certainly got under Easton-Wood's skin. That will have to be the worst game I've seen him play.

Agree ADC.

Wood has a lot more to answer for than Bugg. Wood carried on like a pork chop before the game and Bugg just laughed at him. He then got completely sucked in to that pushing match that resulted in the double goal. If you can find that vision after the first goal Bugg gives Wood bit of a spray and a push, he then wanders over to the goals has a look, thinks this will do nicely and stops dead in his tracks. Wood is completely wound up and does exactly what Bugg was hoping for. The result - another shot from bang in front. Afterwards Buggy is still laughing in the Bulldogs captain's face. Beautiful

This is the sh.it other clubs having being doing to us for years. Personally I love it.

One Bulldogs supporter on BF was bemoaning that even though they'd copped a drubbing, nobody was ringing callback radio on SEN to complain. I actually laughed out loud.

I'll have to check the wording but I'm pretty sure your contract with Demonland forbids you from reading other websites.

Bugg has a lot of Ballentyne about him. A player who the opposition supporter loved to hate but Freo love him and I always wanted a player like him in our team. Bugg is turning into that player.

just needs to sort out the kicking for goal part

Give it a rest Vagg please.

PC is rubbish, utter rubbish. Nothing wrong with banter.

Can't say boo these days.

Footy is a game. 

Gamesmanship, the art of winning games by using various ploys and tactics to gain a psychological advantage, is part of playing games.

Game and set to Bug (and the MFC) on this occasion.

Kudos to all.

When Easton Wood ran out on to the ground, he was thinking about getting Bugg 'back' for his Insta post.  That means Buggy got under his skin and his focus was elsewhere.  It didn't worry Bugg in the slightest and he knew, from the moment Wood went at him before the ball was bounced, that he 'had him'.  It was great to watch.

I can't believe that this has been commented on as much as it has. Not on here but within the media. The Bulldogs banners are far more antagonistic week in week out.

Don't change Bugg, it's brilliant.

Side question: Bugg is commonly labelled a serial pest in the Ballantyne mold. But I actually find Bugg to be a likeable sort. Is this bias? Are there pests from other clubs you quietly enjoy the antics of?
