    I get this on google. Lots of international exposure of the fight. Seems that creates more interest that douchbag Gallop ever would.

    Lots of respect given from NFL, baseball, and hockey fans alike. Must be refreshing to see two fit blokes in a good ol toe to toe with the pads off.

    If we weren't already, the Sea Eagles are now officially on the map.

    I went to watch my old side play in a grand final today

    20mins into the game there was an all in, 15 blokes letting the fists go, and then all the talk on the sidelines turned to last nights encounter haha

    Now would be a great time to cash in financially by taking a Manly game to the US. Easy enough to promote :) Glenn Stewart appearing on Leno ect and making a guest appearance with Blair on Ultimate fighter. There would be a full house at the game, 'guaranteed'. Endless promotional opportunities to sell loads of merchandise. Financially it should be considered as the Sea Eagles are going to have to hand over a motza after the NRL lay in to the club with a massive fine. It's not so bad for Melbourne because News Ltd/NRL will be picking up the Storms tab.
