    I'm too busy working on solving child poverty and a cure for cancer. You'll have to handle the world peace on your own.

    The only thing im upset about is he couldn't take Mary with him.
    Good riddance to him, nothing enterprising was done under his short tenure. Im just peeved that Wincorps so called "saving" of our club has gone backwards and doesn't look like turning around anytime soon.

    Far Korff to Dunnedoo and never come back.

    Oversaw the merger and the worst season in 80 years.

    That’s difficult to answer because like yourself, I’m haven’t been privy to the machinations of Board meetings,

    Ever considered Johnston was given a poisoned chalice by his predecessor?

    When asked about McGregor, BJ reportedly said, "probably a pass mark".

    By itself, "probably a pass mark" is hardly glowing praise. It looks more like a vague attempt to put a positive spin on something.

    It wasn't like he called McGregor something ridiculous like 'supercoach'. Which reminds me, where is Sean O'Connor nowadays?

    Only second hand information from a friend who used to work at the club and still has contacts there: Allegedly, the JDB case was a more destructive issue than has been admitted publicly by management and Johnston was under such a lot of pressure from all quarters that it eventually drove him to pull the pin.

    Leilua's manager probably told him not to burn his bridges; a good piece of advice for his walk through life.

    Price hates us. At least, that's what he told me.

    Yep there are a few Bulldogs players from that era that think the same.
    Steve Reardon is another

    We could always get the third Steve Price to jump on board..

    He’s wasted on The Project..
