    A Guy I know is refusing to support the Roosters this year , due to Money Bill Williams signing with them
    Is there a player that if Manly signed would stop you supporting them ??? I honestly don't think I could do it
    But Smith or Slater from the storm would push my limits .....

    None. I would like my most hated player the instant he signed with Manly. Hated Hopoate when he was at the Tigers but liked him when he came back to Manly. The closest that would come to happening for me would be if Des Hasler returned. But i would never stop supporting them happen unless they merged again. I never went to a game for three years when they were the NE.

    I'd struggle to support Hayne or slater in a manly jumper. But then again I managed to get through the ridge years.

    Michael Hancock though, that would have been a whole different story.

    Thankfully we have a very solid no d!ckhead policy, so this is purely hypothetical.

    Would you really stop supporting Manly for that?

    Mundine. I can't say that though, it'd be racist of me.
    But no, i would still support Manly no matter, i'd just join in with others giving him stick. What do most/all of us say, and have been a lot lately? The club is bigger than any one person

    Terry Lamb would be a test for me but I must say my love for Manly far outweighs my hatred of any individual player.

    For me its not just the players I support, but the maroon jumper they put on each week. So even if the likes of c smith joined I would still support manly. (However I would blame him everytime we lost. Lol)

    I might be wrong here but wasn't the signing of Ben Kennedy a bit like this? I know as a young tucker I couldn't understand why we would sign a loser from Newcastle but he turned out alright :)

    If Warren Ryan signed on as coach it would be a little bit harder to support the club...

    Yep. Support the jersey and the club. Those on the field are paid representatives whom are there to do a job for us.
    If they happen to be locals or big personalities, that is a bonus but at the end of the day, they'll all move on or retire before we stop supporting the club. So why let it affect you?
    Having said that, I can't stand Hodges or Inglis, of the current crop. If we signed Ben Creagh I'd be pretty upset with the recruitment team.

    silly thread IMO, the only way i'd EVER stop supporting manly is if they were kicked out!

    If the merger with norths re: northern eagles didn't stop anyone supporting manly, i'm sure any player that joins manly would also apply surely.
