    No Burgess, no Teo. They will have heaps left in their cap.

    Good luck to Glenn he is an All Time Manly Great.

    According to the proven sensationalist, Danny Wiedler, every Manly player is now set to walk out on the club, starting with Matai.
    He reckons this decision will have repercussions for years and years to come and will probably tear the Sea Eagles to shreds and stuff up the rest of the season.

    Yep, the sky is falling in because of the loss of a handy backrower.

    Desperate clubs always pay overs for good players.

    I'm nearly in tears.

    All the effort and gambling Manly take on guys like Gift Snake Choc Matai Ballin Dce Foz.

    There needs to be exemptions on players that debut and play 5+ consecutive years at 1 club. It's just unfair.

    I hope he's on $800,000 a season with them. Good luck Gift. :(

    Gee. Last week I read on here that he had signed a MOU with Canberra.
    Don't tell me not everything you read is unreliable?

    Maybe Danny can tell us all how Manly could legally break the cap to keep all these players? Or should Manly forget having 25 players and just have a squad of 10 for 2015?

    I am in utter shock. Only positive about this is the fact that scumbag Inglis is there and there won't be a position for Snake.

    Great player for the Eagles who busted his gut each and every week. A rarity in todays game- an old time footballer, not just an athlete.

    There will be no mass exodus but anyone who thinks this will not effect our chances is deluding themselves.Without getting caught up in the rights and wrongs of keeping him/letting him go the simple fact is the Stewarts are so much a part of the fabric of this great club that it will take a monumental effort by Tooves to overcome it.

    Souths have it up on their website.

    Not sure when/if Manly will do the same.

    edit: I know I don't have all the facts, but the inaction of the nrl and long serving players has left me a little pis5ed off.

    Especially now clubs are being told that there are 'must do's' regarding attendance, etc to get nrl money.

    Makes if harder when fav sons are forced to leave whilst mercenaries like sbw have more rules bent for them than roosters in last years gf.
