I believe they will vote to Keep Des for 2012 with a few KPI's to be met by mid season. If Manly are going well then you can presume with the same personal nearly as 2011 there isn't a problem and Des stays until the end of the year. On the other hand if Manly have a dreadful start to the season well my gues is that he will be asked to leave due to player performances as they play footy not the board. Regarding the future of our star players off contract in 2013. Every club is in the same boat so there will always be speculation that a rival club will be interested but remember they will all have salary caps.
