If you're allowing some of the negative vibes out of Holt Street in Surry Hills to cloud your judgement on the reactions to Manly's achievements this year, go and pick-up this week's copies of both these magazines. Steve Mascord in particular has some very positive and perceptive things to say in a couple of articles on pages 5 and 66 of RLW. The former about how the Club has been given a collective jolt regarding Hasler's value as a coach.The latter talks about changing perceptions (in a positive way) about Manly and deliberate attempts by the Club to make it so. Terry Liberopolous in RLR also discusses the necessity of cashing in on the win and getting the money to upgrade Brookvale. Mascord is from the same school as Greg Pritchard, always fair and balanced. TL used to be on the old 'View from the Hill' radio show on 2SER-FM.
