    Champion for the club and really disappointed the club treated him the way they did. One thing to move someone on but it's another to extend their deal then forcing them out.

    Thanks for everything Matty, one of the best clubmen we have had and will always be a MWSE legend!!!

    Such a shame but like Georgie Rose, he'll always be a Manly boy.

    If this is true this will be a Very Sad Day. One of the Nicest Blokes this Club has ever had the pleasure of playing for us

    Top Bloke Matty B

    To be fair here, he wasn't in the new coaching teams plans so it's a good outcome for Ballin. Much better than toiling away in NSW Cup. Things change, life goes on, this helps both sides.

    The peak of his career was with us as we had the best of Matty and we now thank him for the great memories and wish him all the best

    Agreed. Joe Kelly & the Penns needed a good news story at the time so Kelly used Matty to create goodwill with the fan base.

    Can't see how he wouldn't be in NSW cup at tigpies if Farah is still there

    Ballin has been nothing but very loyal player and a pretty good one as well. But like Farah is unwanted at their respective clubs. Sorry to see Matty go but at this stage we needed and got a very powerful backrower. Plus we have signed a million hookers. Parcell, Api, etc.

    A true gentleman and great role model for our fans and a grand final hero. I want to thank Matty B for nearly a decade of great service. You are a permanent legend of our club and I really hope you can continue your work at the tigers.

    Joining the tradition of Craig Hancock, Shannon Nevin, Steve Martin, Russell Gartner, cranky frank etc - the balmain retirement village.

    I get the feeling that MB will start to increase his business interests outside playing. If he gets half the respect at Tigers as he has with us it will certainly expand his influence. He has given us so much. That will not be forgotten.

    Where ever he goes, whatever he does it will be of the highest order.
    If he leaves Manly I hope it is only temporarily and he returns in an off-field capacity.
    He is smart, well spoken, well presented and would make an ideal CEO.

    I don't say this lightly when i say he has probably given us the most service out of any player over the last decade.
