    What's with the SMH match report. Did Manly play?

    Never sinking, becalmed at times perhaps. Now all the sails are hoisted and we are about to unfurl the spinnaker for the downwind leg.

    Would like to congratulate Toovey once again for his fine work in the coaches box. A passionate man on the edge, willing his team to win with every ounce of his being.
    Those little microphones may need to be replaced after each match considering the spray they receive by Tooves.
    Love your work Toovey. Manly legend.

    Great comment from 2V at the end of the press conference. "Glad to see they've cleared up the obstruction rule" tongue firmly planted in cheek.

    I love this quote from the smh ' Broncos coach Anthony Griffin said Civoniceva's farewell would not be a distraction for his players, who have now suffered narrow losses to the top three teams, Canterbury, Melbourne and Manly, in successive weeks.'
    The score didn't reflect the game. Broncos were dominated. Our record against them is Pretty good

    THe poor ears of the bloke he is spraying, and the spray isn't even directed at the other guys wearing the head phones. You wouldn't want to take anything personally that any of the coaches say. It would be worse than working in one of Ramsay's kitchens. :s
