    We miss his steel in defence ! his charges ! Aggression ! Passion

    His ability to wear down and fatigue his opponents will be missed !

    He has left a huge hole that Lewis Brown has no chance of filling !

    Choc your a Manly legend mate ! I thank you for leaving your body at Brookie and all the memories mate !

    The man deserves respect ! What he has done in 10 years at Manly can not be washed away with some comments that the media have tossed up !

    I miss you choc ! Manly warrior ! Your era and dynasty will live forever brother !

    Is your next thread going to be about Glenn Stewart? You seem to have a thread for everything!

    I agree with most of what you say except that it was no media beat up about what he said about our club, the same club who did so much for him, Whatmough fouled the nest and that is something a lot of us will not forget!

    I was actually thinking very similar thoughts on the way home from brookie. He just had that never give in attitude that we needed to stem the tide today. You never really appreciate what you had until it's gone. He was a key part of a magical manly era. A manly great.

    aggression for 80 minutes ! Did drop a ball here and there and give away a penalty towards the end of his career !

    But his intensity,passion, aggression was unrivaled !

    He has earned the right to say what he wants ! Maybe he made a mistake ! Do we not all make mistakes ?

    Would have we preferred it if he stayed with Manly knowing his body was rooted ? He did make room in our cap to try and retain our halves !


    He did the honourable thing and moved on, he probably wiped his arse with that parra jersey sterlo handed to him !

    Any person can say what they want, but their actions and words to me have consequences. I have no issue with him wanting to leave, but there is a way to do it which doesn't involve acting in such a disgraceful manner as he did. You can't treat the club (and by extension the fans) with such disdain and then think they will still have a fondness towards you. Let's also not pretend he bashed up his body for nought. He was paid a handsome sum.

    Honourable? If you really believe that whiteanting the coach and derailing our 2014 premiership campaign was honourable then we really have to agree to disagree.

    One thing I will say, I never doubted his efforts on the field.

    It's evident those senior players have been surely missed.But hey nothing lasts forever & it was inevitable the club would go through this all clubs do.But just remember we're Manly.

    His on field exploits no one can argue with. Just there's a way to move on and a way not to. See Geoff Toovey , Alan Thompson.

    If you think the way he disrespected Manly is acceptable then you are TRULY delusional. Yes I acknowledge his deeds for Manly as the Army of One (in fact he was my favourite player) but he lost all claim to respect after he disrespected the club that stuck with him through thick and thin. And if you honestly think he left Manly to free up money so we could keep our halves, then you have SERIOUS reality problems. As I said already and you have subsequently proven....... DELUSIONAL.
