    This whole debacle is the end result not of the people on the board, but of the structure of the organisation.

    It must be incredibly frustrating for Penn, having the most invested in the joint and not having control.

    Until there is a clear cut mandate for a majority shareholder you can expect the shambles to continue.

    The struggle for control will be the next bloodbath; stay tuned.

    We have a winning culture , we have a legend in Toovey , we have a premiership winning team of Champion players. We also have some good people on the board , as The God Father Ken Artherson said recently for what ever mistakes the board have made they must have done something right for Manly to win all those premierships.
    Our future looks bright and things will get a lot better!!!

    I think those safeguards were put in place so the majority shareholder didn't have total control, for instance if Penn decided that the central coast was our best option financially,it would be vetoed by the leagues and football clubs

    Me too, and for the first time in a long time we have seen a united board and I have a feeling it could stay that way for a while now, if for no other reason than to stabilise the club after this debacle.

    Why shouldn't people have their say?
    Don't read it if you've had enough and certainly don't reply.

    It is after all a "forum" and you are correct WAMF in that you don't have to read what people post, but I also agree with the fact that after the last month the whole "Des V Board"...."Board needs to be sacked" thing has been done to death......we are either on one side of the camp or the other....and it's probably time for a change of subject.

    In saying that Des isn't going to walk away into the Sunset (as I beleive he should) so this could well run for some time yet.

    Clit, Penn seemed to be very relaxed and looked in complete control at the press conference yesterday. I don't think there will be more upsets on the way. Des is on his bike, Zorba on a board somewhere, and it all looks good. Now back to boredom.

    Last night, the Sea Eagles' chairman and co-owner Scott Penn insisted that a number of staff members had played the role of informant about Hasler trying to lure them over to the Bulldogs.

    He said he also had email evidence to support the board's decision to sack him.

    "I explained to Des there were half a dozen examples of him verbally trying to persuade staff to leave," Penn said.

    "Every time, he simply said, 'I have never tried to entice a staff member to leave the club'. To me, that's a denial.

    "I don't want to hang the individual staff members out to dry who have told me otherwise, but we are more than confident that we have very strong evidence of improper conduct if this goes to court."

    No doubt despite the calls for sacking of the board etc etc, on this occasion you can bet they have all their bases loaded. They would have had the best of legal opinions, and you can be sure they have e-mail / stat declerations and a bunch of staff to back this up.

    If Des makes the decision to take this further, he may well regret it.....I understand his emotions, it's natural BUT in business there's a time to fight and a time to withdraw gracefully....he'd be better looking at the latter option IMO.

    Seriously move on and be positive... The board saw issues with Hasler and the fact they have found solid evidence of poaching... Maybe Des isn't the man we all thought he was.
