    Jason Annear: A life too short

    JASON Annear was a young footballer going places until tragedy struck. James Hooper explains why he will never be forgotten at the Sea Eagles

    AT the end of each day, a grieving father says “good night’’ under his breath to his son, Manly Sea Eagle
    No. 543, Jason Annear.

    I certainly will bear Jason in mind each game I attend as the spiritual 19th man :heart:

    Hope that he will inspire those on the field that may feel like they have no more energy left in a game.
    May they channel Jason and forge ahead inspite of the pain:angel:

    Congratulations to the inaugral Jason Annear 7's Tournament 2013 - Manly :)

    Was a really touching article. Well written and dignified. How is this guy a colleague of Rothfield?

    Alcohol is such a dangerous thing. Everyday someone dies due to alcohol related incidents. That poor 21 year girl who fell from the balcony last week at Cronulla, the boy blinded by alcohol poisoning in Bali. This, no wonder it was called the devil's drink. I lost 2 mates who drove into a wall not seeing the corner bend when I was 19.
    Today's Telegraph mentions teenage drinking is epidemic and destroying hospitals. Let's hope it goes the way of the tobacco industry. Jason was a real talent and reading his Dad it is heartbreaking.

    A great story from Jimmy Hooper, he is by far DTs best League writer.

    Nice to hear that Jason's Dad is still involved with our club, It sounds like it is helping him deal with the terrible loss of Jason.

    It must have been even tougher for the family once footy season rolled around.

    Again, nice touch by the club.

    This is the Manly spirit. Family always comes first and I'm proud to be a member of the club who has helped one of it's own through what must be the most devestating time in a parents' life.

    I can tell you the article brought a tear to my eye. RIP Jason.
