    Who do you guys see as our next captain when Killer retires (which hopefully is a few years off yet). I would think it would be out of Foz and DCE.

    I've viewed Foz as a future captain for a long time. I thjnk he'd be a real 'Follow me, I'll show you how to do it' type leader. His only negative is he already has a reputation with refs as a whinger so I'd like to see him change how he talks to officials (but then again, we have a proud history of captains who like to let the ref know how they feel :D).

    On the other hand, DCE has the golden boy rep and I think would handle the refs better. The untested thing with him is how players would respond to him as a leader.

    Would have to Foran.
    Surely it'd be difficult for DCE to be captain of Manly if he's playing for the Broncos ( as all the rumour mongers tell us!)

    Mate, DCE would handle that easy. He's bloody good!:p

    For me it's Foz over DCE. I have more faith in Foz sticking around after their current contracts end. Would like to have seen the Pocket Battleship (Choc) as captain but can't seen him outlasting Lyon.

    I thought kite but after he signed with Penrith I thought David Gower. He's gone now so I think Fred Flintstone should be our future captain.

    he has only had a problem with one ref and I think every Manly fan has a problem with that same ref for a lot of very good reasons. I thought that ref was retiring at the end of last season so shouldn't be an issue

    Hayne retiring? I'd hope not, as I want to give him a spray when next at Brookvale.

    Absoultey ridiculous post napper.
    We all know Barney Rubble has the superior temperament and football knowledge to be captain of flintstone. I also question Fred's fitness.

    I think we have quite a few that could be captain material. Foz and DCE definite long term prospects, what about Matty Ballin? I think he's exceptionally underrated, and seems to have a good even temperament (which I do think is important and could count against Foz).

    I love that idea. I know this would never happen but I wouldn't want to be a ref when Captain Stevie gets that look in his eye. Out of fear we might win penalty counts.

    we currently have 2 captains (1 rarely on the field recently) so why not foz & dce share the duties?
    if that would help to convince either (or both) player/s to stay when contract negotiations are up i can't see why not.

    Yeah good idea. Killer is winding down his career and can just maintain being the world's best center.

    I thought about this further
    What about Captain Kirk or Captain Obvious or Captain Kangaroo.
    I would have said roger ramjet but he is in dip excreetment with Asada for his use of Proton pills that contain illegal HGH
