    What are some of the best rumours we have heard of recent years involving players coming to manly.

    * Someone saw Willie Mason at the Mall and assumed that he was in negotiations with Manly.

    * Aaron Moule was a pretty funny story. People almost cried when he backed out.

    When I was living in Brisbane in the mid eighties there were strong rumours that Wally Lewis & Gene Miles were going to Manly in a deal brokered by Kerry Paker due to his friendship with Bob Fulton

    Oops just saw the recent years bit ;)

    I remember last year someone saw Asotasi leaving our leagues club in a suit LOL.

    I started one a few years back that Manly were signing Eion Crosson. A few of the natives bought it, and it got deleted from the official site within about 40min :D

    Lewis broke his signed contract with Manly, he admits this himself at sports luncheons.... he had signed, got a bigger offer then told Manly "I'm not coming so what do you want to do?" they let him go. At least he had the decency to return his signing fee.

    I reckon the best rumour from the last 2 years was that Matabelle was dumping us and becoming an administrator on the Rooters site.

    Wally Lewis and Gene Miles has signed for Manly for 88 but when Brisbane announced their entry they were allowed to break contract and play with them again.

    A few years late Zinzan Brooke was signed but was allowed to stay an All Black to win the World Cup, by Graham Lowe!!! :lol: :lol:
