I've seen quite a few different responses to Matai's situation at the moment. I've got to say that I am appalled by the behavior. Even more so because it was a young female who he decided to vent his anger on. On his punishment we are aware that this is his second offense. Quite a few have said that he was very lucky in his last barroom scuffle so it paints a pretty clear picture to me that he has no regard for his own public image, so why the club? I don't think it matters what player it is but if Matai or any other player commits repeated similar offenses, in my opinion we need to make an example of them and tear up a contract. The Manly club have done a pretty good job of keeping a clean record and the last place we want our team is on the front page for reason's other than good performances. Someone on MSE mentioned a point that really made a lot of sense when I read it and shines a different light on the situation. We didn't even consider an attempt at Faumuina because we didn't want that sort of drunken behavior as part of the Manly image. I think the Matai situation will give us an indication of just how strong that stance is if he slips up again.
