    IMO we are undergoing what is said in the corporate world as a restructure. We had 10 great years and cannot afford to sit on our laurels. Young stars like Gutho and co. Are ambitious and will not sit in the background for the next 3 years. They will want to ply their trade. We need to rebuild ,and like it is in the corporate world ,need to let go of the so called furniture and redecorate. By doing this, we ensure that we bring new thoughts,invigoration and inspiration as well as attitude to the team.

    We need to look at who we wish to lead our business and see if those who are still around can follow the business blueprint or destabilise it. If it is the latter, then they must go. Most effective and flourishing businesses turn staff over every 5 years ,whilst holding onto key staff members to continue the business footprint.

    Manly is a business and if some of the rumours are true then it's best we relieve them of their turmoil and move them on. Onwards and upwards. Manly the club will survive long after unhappy individuals have gone.

    Well, Des had a 5-year plan. It just came to fruition in 4 years rather than five.

    Keeping the nucleus has worked well until this year. 10 years in the Finals is no mean feat but the stars shouldn't be the ones dictating who stays and who goes!
    Players are players and administrators are just that and that's how it should be.
    When the players want to be administrators as well, our natural flow will stop running.

    We have to trust Tooves & Perry.

    Pundits have been bleating about our ageing roster for years. Tooves and the retention committee have it dead right, any player 30 or over who is playing well gets offered a decent 2 year contract (except gift whose contract was ahead of the cap squeeze year). Problem is they all want 3 or 4. We can't do that, because generation next are almost here. If Anthony goes he has reportedly knocked back a 1.2m 2 year extension.

    One of the biggest impacts was the RLPA forcing in the bargaining agreement that any long-term injured player must be paid out his full amount, even if that injury results in immediate retirement.

    It was pointed out at the time that +30 year olds would find it hard to get better than 2 year deals because of the risk a club takes with them breaking down early in a long-term contract.

    Although the monies wouldn't appear under the Cap, it is an extra expense the top clubs are largely avoiding exposure to.

    I'm for a size 12 boot right in the middle of a business footprint. Corporate speak is such a wonderful thing.

    We made the GF last year, and are equal first heading into this years finals series. We do not need to rebuild, nor do we need to restructure footballing operations or anything of the like. One player has signed with Souths, another rumoured to be leaving....so to my calculations that is only two players out of a squad of 25; hardly time to panic and draw up plans for the future.

    The newspapers thrive on the soap opera of player signings, tomorrows stars, and what the future holds, all the while forgetting that a competition is happening NOW! We have a team of 17 players that will run out on Friday night in a semi-final and that is what really matters. You see, the modern professional game involves a revolving door of continual comings and goings, none of which can be comprehensively planned and executed due to the litany of variables (salary cap, location, family commitments, offers from other clubs). So to continually chase certainty where it simply does not exist, before turning the focus onto winning a premiership, is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    The difference is a corporate restructure is normally the result of a functional leadership
