So at the moment Canterbury have all the money and they get it through having a rich Leagues club that thrives off poker machine profits. Manly on the other hand are toiling along without any significant leagues club grant and under David Perry continue to improve in a slow and steady manner. So how does that put Manly in the Box seat? Look what's gone down in Canberra today we have a minority government who will do whatever it takes to stay in power. What has that got to do with footy? Well there's an Independent MP Andrew Wilkie who is dead keen to destroy pokies and wants the government to bring in legislation that will slash the pokie profits and bring many leagues clubs to their knees. If Slipper or Thomson go watch labor to swoon Wilkie to get his vote. If it plays out that way the rich bulldogs won't be rich much longer. While Sydney clubs like manly and souths who don't rely on leagues club grants will be unscathed.
