    Part of the astonishing resilience of rugby league comes from the passion and ownership of its tribal supporters.  For these tribesmen (me included) the support of one’s team goes well beyond a passing interest in weekly results.
    Manly Warringah has become a part of my identity over the years.  The club name, emblem, colours and club culture interwoven into soul which means that there is an incredible emotional investment in their successes and failures.

    Stirring stuff from a perennial stirrer.

    You're going to have to come up with something new though, after our unheralded team (rank outsiders in February) smash through on Sunday for one one of our most famous ever victories.

    I'm a suffering prophet. I know I'm right but it takes others to learn from the mistakes they could have avoided had they listened to me first time around.

    Great read. But what's with the bragging? The 2008 post grand final "Don't get complacent" thread proved as effective as the "Don't think of pink elephants" one.

    Thanks for eloquently surmising the past 12 years. Personally I couldn't go to any NE Games, but always wished the Manly Players that were playing well.

    I had the chance to pat every Player and Official as they walked past us in 2008 and into the Club. I'll always remember the elder Penn's smile when I said 'Thank You', pure joy.

    Must be so value fullfilling to spend on ventures that give the General Public so much happiness. :angel:
