Bullioh's appeal to join the Tallangatta and District league has been dismissed by the AFL NEB Commission.
The Bulldogs were looking to switch leagues after concerns about the future of the Upper Murray Football Netball League.
However, they were vehemently denied entry by the Tallangatta league clubs in a 20-1 vote which led to the Bulldogs' appeal.

The appeal was dismissed after the AFL NEB determined that entry into the TDFL was not considered in the best interests of local football.
"THE AFL NEB Commission considered both the Bullioh appeal submission and the TDFL's opposition to the transfer during the appeal process and have dismissed the appeal," AFL NEB General Manager John O'Donohue said.
"Whilst Bullioh have been proactive in seeking a transfer of leagues given a level of uncertainty has surrounded the UMFNL, there are many regional factors which require consideration which the commission took into account."
