General New Season - New Website


9th Mar 2007 @ 2:04pm

In conjunction with tonight's 2007 Bulldogs Season Launch, a new website has been unveiled and boy does it pack a punch.

Apart from the new slick interface design, the content reigns supreme with some exciting new additions for 2007.

Comprehensively building on last season's history pages, 2007 brings the most extensive club history section in the National Rugby League.

The Pups section in 2007 is one to look out for. With photos of the young up-and-comers in both Premier League and Jersey Flegg, personal attributes with questionnaires and player stats to boot. The SG Ball and Harold Matthews sections contain both squad lists along with player stats for the 2007 season.

All new downloads are available in the form of desktop wallpapers, forum banners and club theme songs. A new addition to the theme songs is 'Who Let the Dogs Out', the version the boys run out to at Telstra Stadium. A new screensaver will be available shortly.

The 2007 Tipping Comp is open and ready to go. Although all features are not active at this point in time, they will be enabled prior to season kick-off. A new addition to the competition is the 'Friends List'. This allows you to add all your mates and compete against each other whilst taking on the rest of the Bulldogs supporters.

This season's Photo Gallery is stored in a large database containing over 750 photos from the 2006 season and the 2007 pre-season. The gallery includes images from training sessions, cheerleader performances, special events, and most importantly, match day. You can even search the gallery for your favourite player.

Can't make it to the game? Well, our live scores of every Bulldogs match in season 2007 will help you out. Starting from Round 1 against the Knights, keep up-to-date with all the action as it happens.

You may have noticed at the back-end of season 2006, videos of training sessions and activities were displayed on the website. In 2007 they are housed in their own Video Gallery. Like the new photo gallery, the videos are stored in a database, allowing you to search the videos using keywords.

The calendar on the home page is another new feature to the website. This handy tool informs you of up-coming events, training sessions, player appearances and even player birthdays. All situated conveniently on the home page and also under 'Season'.

But most importantly, the history section is the show stopper. With Player Profiles on all 683 first graders who have played for the club since the inaugural season in 1935. Extensive data including their career statistics from all grades, a biography, personal attributes, photos and much much more.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to navigating through the historical information. All data is linked, making it easy to view further records at the click of a button. Whilst viewing a past player's profile, you can even click on their debut where you will be taken directly to that matches summary. The summary will display the date the match was played, which venue it was played at, the coach, the captain, referee, attendance, scoreline, point scorers (tries, goals, field goals) and in some cases, even a match review.

You can browse the results year by year, viewing the entire playing squads from each year. You can browse results against all teams, venues and on game day, you can even check up on how the club goes when a certain referee is in control of the game.

In 2004, the 70 Year Team of Champions was announced. The team, along with the commemorative painting commissioned by Mr Dave Thomas and other details of the night, can be viewed by visiting the 70 Years section.

The fun certainly does not stop there. Ever wanted to know the all-time list of coaches, captains, representative players, (Australia, New Zealand, NSW, QLD) artwork of each playing kit and logo worn by the club since that day back in 1935? Well, look no further - it is all right in front of you.

The club has a rich history and it is important that the fans are familiar with the club's amazing story. In 1991 a book was published about the club, titled, 'The Bulldog Story.' The entire book (169 pages), including some historical photos, can be viewed on in the History Overwiew section.

As the season progresses, watch out for even more exciting additions such as an interactive Sonny Bill Williams Flash game, Squad Selecter, and Player of the Round.

For now - get clicking.
