Bulldogs boss talks down Gosford move

Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg has moved to hose down fears his NRL club was bound for the NSW central coast.

Greenberg confirmed reports that the club had looked into the merits of a lucrative relocation to Gosford, but insisted such a move had yet to be discussed at board level or explored in any real depth.

"Let's not go into hysteria and say the Bulldogs are moving to the central coast tomorrow because that's completely untrue," Greenberg told the Macquarie Radio network.

"To clarify a little bit of the hysteria this morning in the news reports, we're really about trying to explore some options.

"I don't think you can discount anything, or have a look at anything until you have all the facts on the table.

"We have experienced some difficulties at our new training base (at Sydney Olympic Park) - there's no doubt about that ... but we're trying to make what currently is our deal at Homebush work.

"This is not about just looking at the central coast.

"I want to have a look at Belmore, I want to have a look at what opportunities are available at The Crest at Bankstown, I want to have a look at what opportunities are available here at Homebush.

"And we'd be silly not to add Gosford to that list."

The Bulldogs were reportedly promised fulltime use of Sydney Showground as part of their two-year deal to use the Sydney Olympic Park precinct as their training and administrative base.

But they have instead been forced to shift practices between a warm-up athletics track and former home at Belmore.

The NRL has offered $8 million as a starting point to a club that relocates, but that figure could increase in the future.
