So many of Manlys issues come down to money. Most should have been avoidable as these clowns at the NRL give compensations to keep players at certain clubs, yet the clubs who develope juniors from scratch get no compensation to retain the player they nurtured. Its a fact Manlys desire and will is instilled to both new players and juniors as shown in recent years with NSW cup players blooming into quality 1st graders at Manly who could not get a start at there NRL clubs. Then after gaining that winning culture at Manly, they become wanted at other teams to spread the attitude through their club...and fair enough. But how about the 1 club players - Foran/Matai/Stewarts/DCE ect....surely these blokes should be give compensation before outsiders like SBW/Burgess just to get them to play NRL....the ethics seem mixed up here....as a fan this issue runs deeper than just Manly, but the NRL need to act on this soon as it rips apart clubs, pi##es off fans and defies common sense.
