WESTERN Bulldogs great Bob Murphy has responded to former teammate Luke Dahlhaus’ Instagram post.
Dahlhaus took to Instagram to respond to comments from Murphy over his “dedication” after the 2016 premiership.
The 312-gamer told SEN on Wednesday the pair were having “a little footy tiff” but it was nothing a “cup of coffee” couldn’t resolve.
BOB MURPHY WILL APPEAR ON FOX FOOTY’S AFL 360 TONIGHT FROM 7.30PM (AEST) …
“I love Luke. We’re tight. We’re having a little footy tiff,” Murphy said on SEN.
“We’re both doing difficult jobs, so you don’t want to get asked about it.
“You (Garry Lyon and Tim Watson) asked me a direct question and I gave an observation about Luke, about his footy and he didn’t appreciate that. And that’s fair enough. Nothing that a cup of coffee can’t sort out.
“He’s overseas … we’ll catch up when he gets back.”
Murphy had told SEN on September 5 he thought a “few of them (the Bulldogs), in 2017, took their eye off the ball”.

“I think Luke would put his hand up to say that he maybe wasn’t as dedicated or hungry as he’d been the years before.
“That was his thing, he missed out on the draft because he wasn’t the most talented, but he was a ball of hunger and selflessness.
“He still does play like that, but the last two years, it’s been shaded a little bit and not what it was.”
On Sunday, Dahlhaus posted several Instagram stories as well as a post repeatedly mentioning motivation.
“How unmotivating is this? I feel so unmotivated,” Dahlhaus said sarcastically while sitting on a beach.
“I swear when I woke up after 2016 I was just so unmotivated. F*****g hell, I wish I was listening to SEN.
“Holy f*** that shoe is so unmotivating. It must have been made in 2016.”
He also posted a photo of him and Liberatore with the caption “Wow I feel so motivated”.
Dahlhaus is set to join Geelong on a four-year deal worth over $2 million, first reported by foxfooty.com.au’s Tom Morris.
The forward kicked just two goals in 17 games in 2018.
