    It is unfortunate but a few on here are taking a small break from the site. The T&Cs clearly state that offensive, insulting and racist statements are not tolerated. It is obvious that many have forgotten that. I appreciate that the issues for the club are passionate ones but enough is enough. Stay cool or enjoy the break.

    Keep it clean guys. Let's have these discussion without them getting deleted, so hopefully people that matter can hear how the supporters feel.

    How supporters feel has never mattered. It's not likely to start meaning anything now.

    Y'all need to take a chill pill. Go out and take a walk, or have a swim or something. I'm about to combine both.

    Add a bike ride and then you can say you've done a mini triathlon

    So you are banning good posters that contribute greatly to the site without giving warnings to them 1st I hear,

    that is unfair to them when Trolls are coming here and inflaming the place and you let them keep posting there dribble

    BE, complaints everywhere. When they get back the next forum down already has a title suitable for them.

    Having a bulldog supporter here atm is just like putting bull in a china shop, he may well a nice person but he/she isn't helping, most of us are ropable, disappointed etc and some see the bulldogs as the instigators, I am not saying they are, but please whoever approves new members here perhaps one of the questions you should ask is do you support Manly and keep Silvertails for only Manly fans.

    One would have hoped Manly fans were bigger than that.

    I realise this is most likely aimed at me, but that's rubbish.

    For the record by the way, I already liase with Dan on here, and he is well aware I'm a Bulldogs supporter.

    The question I pose though is, why does it care who you support, as long as you participate with a level head, don't troll, and abide by the rules.

    We have some of your members over at The Kennel, are they banned over there because they support Manly... Nope, not at all.

    Some of the posters (Manly supporters) on here are taking to racist remarks without Bulldogs supporters being invvolved in those threads. Comments like Des Halal and Noel Khalil are just childish and really only show the immaturity in the poster. If anything, and a person cannot post on a discussion forum without resorting to childish name calling, then regardless of who they support, a forum probably isn't the best place for them.

    On another thing, when the Dogs went through the Kevin Moore and the board scandals, we also had some rather silly posters who went off the rails getting angry and anyone and anything.

    The bottom line is this. At the end of the day we are all supporters of a game we love. Regardless of who we choose to support, locking out users who *may* support other sides is never a good thing. It stifles healthy discussion, and input. Just look at Jubliee (Dragons Forums) to see what I'm talking about.

    If people are going to post like idiots, they'll do so regardless of who other people support on here. Heck I could create a second user account called .. i don't know "ManlyMan2012" or whatever and proclaim to be a Manly fan, and you wouldn't know any different.

    Final note is that EVERY supporter base forum has "those people" on there forums that annoy / abuse others, it's just the nature of forums really.

    Good to see the mods are taking note of things though.

    It wasnt directed at you and I see your point, trust me your not the problem. [hr]
    It was only a suggestion mate but in saying that why should we have to put up with abuse. This is only come about today because of one bulldogs supporter, anyway have a nice day....

    Ahhh gotcha Earnie The Eagle, thanks and I know who you are referring to now.

    Oh and BTW all the best with your diagnosis (read in the other thread). My grandfathers going through a similar thing at the moment.

    Thanks, the specialist thinks it been caught early, surgery in the next week.
    I really have no problem who comes here, I just would have thought that bulldogs fans would have have realised that if they came and started fueling an already intense fire, they would have coped it, decent bulldog fans would not have .A lot of manly fans see the dogs as the instigator and its unlikely anyone will change their minds. As I mentioned elswhere I now know how Magpies and Norths supporters felt after we plucked them to death years ago.

    I have no issue with opposition supporters.

    I'm more pissed at the key figures within our club treating it like a joke.
