Just another day in paradise
It's so obvious to everyone what is with wrong with the club. The question is, how do you fix it? that is what the review needs to address. Not what, but how?
I know this is all stuff we have heard before but Doyle seems like the kind of guy that will be more action than words. I like the talk of continuing to recruit especially after hearing of salary cap problems."It's critical that when we do reviews and get feedback from all areas of the business, that we have a good honest discussion, so that we can improve," Doyle said.
"That's really important because this year's performances aren't acceptable and we've got to make sure we don't put ourselves in the same position again.
"From a club point of view, we'll do a complete season review and look at everything we've done across the whole organisation. We'll look at what needs to improve and how we do that."
Doyle says they will examine the players' statistics for the season and continue to bolster their roster for next year.
"We're in the market right now to recruit in people in regards to recruitment and development, as well as physios and strength and conditioning.
"So we'll finalise all of that and then put together our budget and plans for next year."
The players will be the first to have reviews and each one will be given instructions on what they need to do over the off-season to keep themselves in good shape.
The never really got going comment probably sums up our season best.For me 2015 will be remembered as the year that never got going. Bad injuries from round 1 and carrying 4 rookies a week cost us any kind of consistency. We never found rhythm for more than 2 weeks and in the end guys clocked off cause they were getting the sack
Do think the Bulldogs rehab crew would have all been there at Mt Smart? Of course not. they were only there because it was a home game.I noticed behind the Bulldogs bench last night sat all of their injured players. Two weeks ago one of our senior blokes was at the movies while we played. I defended him, because I've not really seen our club have that culture where the injured blokes are there behind the bench. Its a small sign of professionalism, but everyone should be there on game day playing or actively supporting and promoting the direction of the club.
To be fair they were in a different country at the time. If it had been a home game i would have been baying for his head as well, but given that they were overseas and the club had chosen not to fly him over, i dont approve (because of the PR issues), but i understand.Two weeks ago one of our senior blokes was at the movies while we played.
I seriously wonder if instead of being homesick he was asked to go when they got Roger Tuivasa-Sheck signed on board (they would have known the salary cap issues even then). The Homesickness was just a nice way to say you havent been fired, but your going anyway.

Are the Warriors rehab crew at Mt Smart during home games? Of course they are. Most wont be watching the game though. Theyre generally in the corporate suites, lounges, club and sponsors tents doing promo or PR work...
I like what youre getting at. Cohesiveness, solidity, unity.No I agree. I'm not saying in Sydney. I'm more meaning at Auckland games. Unless they don't get shown on TV there doesn't appear to be that cohesiveness. I would drop the PR work to post game and have them behind the bench during the game.
So far Im hearing Ryan Hoffman hasnt held back so theres hope...
