    This is no surprise to anyone really - both seemed obvious choices for the role. The news gets better and better for the Eagles.

    Good point Mark. Interesting to see if Tooves getting into Lyon's ear will change his personality.

    Beside myself is an understatement.  I shoot my load every time I read the article.  Still haven't been able to read the whole article yet.

    Grabbing extra vasoline and viagra and a soft cushion (for tomorrow) because its going to be a big night in Kingytown tonight.  

    I am just not sure how killer became co-captain with his spindly looking biceps.  Get on the weights man and bulk up like the Kingster and at least look like a footballer.

    Manly will enter the 2010 season with co-captains for the first time in its 63-year history following the dual appointment of Jason King and Jamie Lyon to the top job.

    As forecast by Sportal on November 17 last year, local junior King will handle the majority of off-field duties with Lyon in charge during matches.

    King, who is studying to be a lawyer and is the Sea Eagles' players' union representative, is comfortable in front of the media and at home with sponsors and officials.

    "I want to be a one-team player if I can. I went to school across the road from Brookvale Oval and it is the only club I care about. To be co captain with 'Killer' is a real buzz," King said.

    Lyon, who famously walked out on Parramatta in 2004 complaining about the pressures of playing in the NRL, prefers to steer clear of the spotlight.

    His job will primarily be an on-field role, with the Sea Eagles keen to foster a better relationship with referees following Matt Orford's confrontational style.

    The two will share duties at post-match press conferences.

    "It is a real honour for me to lead such a great club - I have been here for three years and to be appointed on-field captain after such a short time is a massive thrill," Lyon said.

    "I enjoy playing with the group of players we have and I am sure we will have a successful season."

    While many clubs have adopted the co-captains system in recent years, Manly has stuck with the one-skipper policy.

    The club has produced some of the game's great leaders, including Bob Fulton, Max Krilich and Geoff Toovey, but coach Des Hasler now views the position as a two-player job.

    "The role of captain in the NRL today is a big ask on one player - we are simply spreading the workload," Hasler said.

    Lyon has played 65 first-grade games for the Sea Eagles while King - who started his grade career with the Northern Eagles in 2001 - has played 146 games.

    I thought I had it bad for B.Stewy but I think Kingyfan tops me. I guess some folk like their men a little beefier. Concerning Stewy I'm still worried about Gronk though.

    I think Gronk is a lot more obvious in his love for the Stewy however KFs post above is up there
