    Well since I have awoken to a few emails and a buzz that I didn't quite expect, I though I should post saying that our post regarding Glenn Stewart was of course an APril fools joke.

    Our apologies to any distress it caused anyone, but hey we do like to have a bit of fun around here.

    Enjoy the rest of your day knowing that the post was complete and utter imagination.

    by the sounds of some of the emails I received there will be a few coming off that same ledge. I remember when people had a sense of humour, back in the good old days

    It was a good team effort, thank you to everyone who played along and carried the joke.

    It cost me a few hundred dollars as I had to upgrade the server with more RAM to cope with the extra traffic :)

    Well if you look at it another way..

    Its nice to see there are some very passionate supporters who love this club dearly (me included). Its nice to know that the club is supported by very loyal fans (they do say true manly fans bleed maroon and white).

    I think it speaks for it self that most people (again me included) want gift to see his career out at Manly, and his signature is more than just about the club itself, but the wider sea eagles community. :)

    I had faith it was an april fools, but ill admit that twitter post was making me have second thoughts. :)

    Got to say it was a good effort from Dan. Got me in the beginning before the April fools thing clicked. If not I would have been inwardly having a private meltdown at work while surrounded by 25 children under ten, followed by obsessively Silvertailsing on my breaks.
    Note: the 25 kiddies constantly bombarded me with the likes of, 'Miss N,pops, I hurt my finger, April fool!
    Very grateful when 12pm occurred. Happy April fools day Silvertails :)

    The twitter post was genuine offshoot of the post which was really quite helpful and unexpected :)

    Stars aligned.

    As for costing me money, I was delaying the inevitable the site needed the ram weeks ago. The upside is it will help improve overall performance

    But I already bought a Raiders jersey and got Stewart and 13 printed on the back... do you think I can sell it on eBay? I feel like a Dragons fan with a 2009 premiers t shirt...

    The suggestion Gifty was mates with Sam Burger head was pretty damn cheeky, too!

    On a serious note, am wondering if he did meet with Manly officials today after all; and if any progress has been made......?
