    THE disgraceful behaviour of Manly stars Brett Stewart and Anthony Watmough has cost the Bulldogs a sponsorship deal worth more than $1.5million. We've been told Bulldogs CEO Todd Greenberg and his marketing team were on the verge of signing a major sponsor last week before the game was dragged into the gutter by Manly. The chief executive of the sponsor rang Greenberg on Thursday to withdraw the offer. Greenberg was reluctant to comment, other than to say: "The game's had enough bad publicity. Yes, we were very close, but it's fallen over. I don't want to be bagging Manly. We'll just keep doing our best to portray the right image to attract sponsors.''

    Funny then that Manly has a full deck of sponsors standing behind us (apart from one notable who seems hell-bent on enjoying his 15 seconds of fame).

    Note to bulldogs - putting a children's charity on your chest does not gloss over more than a decade of foolish behaviour and rowdy fans.

    Maybe Hamas could come up with some cash.  They sure could do with some good publicity.

    I'm getting a really deep resentment to these leeches in the media. I don't know, maybe it's just me though.

    They are human Ryan, but it is essential to understand whose interests they act in.  And don't be shy to use them when we need to.

    Look on page 4 of the Telegraph today.  "Lighting fuse of drug gang wars'.  Oh, what do we see?  a guy in a Bulldogs jersey.  No wonder they have an image problem.

    It's amazing that they didn't find someone with a Manly jersey on instead.
