    You sit across from Max Delmege, the man who saved the club that so many hate, with a $15 million question at the forefront of your mind.

    exactly, alot of keyboard heroes have big shots at Max but don't remember anyone opening their cheque book in 2002!! If he wouldn't have stepped in we may have gone away like the Bears. I will always be thankful to Max and hope others will too!!

    I know things went a bit sour in the end, but he saved our club. Every Manly fan owes him a great debt of gratitude. I hope it all works out for him in the end.

    yeah, he helped out great, people go it was for his business but chucking money into a broke footy club wouldn't be first choice to spend 15 million in advertising. Let's hope this thread goes for a while and Max gets wind of it. Talk of true supporter would definitely start with Max as he put millions into us.

    ''He was the saviour. The accolades have been given to him but I don't think the NRL appreciate the enormity of what he did.''

    The NRL might not appreciate the enormity of what Max did to save our Manly but we certainly do!! And we'll never forget. Onya Max.

    Everyone knows my sentiments towards Max. When the dust settles on a 'stadium', I would hope there's a statue of Arko and one of Max out the front. Without those two, we'd be history.

    without a doubt the man saved our club and we should be forever greatful.

    I think also unlike George Piggins who saved souths, Max knew when the time was right to move on.

    Gotta respect him for that.

    Max backed Manly with hard cash when there was no proven Coaching otcomes and a motley crew of Players.
    Glad for all of us that the 2008 GF vindicated his leop of faith in that Manly is a Premiership contender.

    Till recently, no other Corporate was willing to be associated with a Team that only 3 years ago set the benchmark for NRL GF. This is as flabbergasting as the inumerable Refereeing calls on our tries/tries against Manly in 2011.

    My unconditional gratitude for bringing back the only Team I've ever followed :heart:
