In 2012 Tooves needs to be given the reigns to make the major calls. Obviously he has worked amongst the scenes in recent years but for mine all major decisions go with Tooves. This is the way he will earn the players respect & trust including those off contract. Keep in mind Tooves will bring his own ideas to the table & I must confess to feeling excited about this possability becoming reality. If Des is genuine in his quest to continue in 2012 with the future of Manly in his best interest he will at least have Tooves as combined head coach. Tooves has been involved in rep fixtures & apart from knowing strategies & skills is possably the greatest competitor I have seen in football. Love the quick call- good decision but lets give Tooves the opportunity he has longed for & deserves. If Des still has Manly's best interests at heart for 2012 I believe this should happen.
