    Well I bet the heading has a particular journo salivating.

    But the real story is.......

    Wait for it......

    I won a wristwatch in the 'vote in the gordon willoughby medal' competition from round 14!


    Yay :D

    I'd forgotten you could win anything and was just voting to be a good member, but my thanks to all the gang at Manly who organised and ran the comp, and to Maxum the providers of the prize.

    I never really think these prizes to go anyone so it was a nice surprise. Won't swap it for my Breitling...yet.

    Apologies for the misleading but tongue in cheek title however it's still 9pm yesterday here and I'm bored.

    Hope to go back to back in 2012!

    GO MANLY!!!!

    Congratulations :) Who was your MOM in Round 14 BTW?

    Keep it on Sydney time and you will be able to cheer the Boys on in 'real' time :D

    Well we played Nth Qld and beat them 24 - 4.

    So I probably voted for Brett Stewart with his 2 tries.

    Here's a pic. :) <--- well that's an emoticon, pic is below, sorry it's kinda big.

    Good onya Global Eagle.

    Yes, I received a shock, too.
    Round 6, obviously I voted. I try to on each round.

    But I won a watch, too.

    So even in the country town of Lismore (actually a city of 45,000) a MAXUM watch is coming my way!

    Thanks Manly!
    I was content with the privilidge of supporting the Sea Eagles but the watch is a bonus!

    Mate, you want to be more careful with what you write; that will be all over the back page of the tele tomorrow painting Manly fans in a bad light. Haven't we had enough of the controversy and the let downs. Can't we enjoy being premiers again without more negative stuff and deliberate leaks of highly sensitive information. Pull your head in, Globaleagle ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... oh, and congratulations :^)

    Bilambil boys don't need to know the time, the time knows them! I never played for any group 18 teams, for the stangs I was more a spectator and minor sponsor (which included the after game polo shirts which they always covered with jackets!)

    That's B/s, it's always 9 minutes past 50 around here!

    I may offer it to foz or dce as an extra incentive to extend their contracts (as long as it doesn't put us over the salary cap)

    All photos of promotional watches have the hands at 10-past 10. The reason, according to an industry specialist, is because it looks like the watch is smiling!
    Just add that to the useless pieces of trivia we have stored in our brains.

    I'm very excited!!

    Not just because of the weekends result but after 10 long months the Maxum watch I won has arrived!!!!

    And here it is:

    [​IMG]

    It's actually a very solid feeling watch and I like the new design of the latch clasp which will put an end to untimely watch strap openings.

    I removed a couple of links (as I'm just that handy) and it fits super well!!


    BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!!

    I don't know why, and I don't know how (actually I know how the mail system works), but I got a bonus scarf in the mail as well!

    How, why, when, who, what - dunno but I'm keeping it!!

    You wanna see a pic? Oh you know you do!!!


    [​IMG]


    AND FINALLY.....

    Showing his approval the one and only, rarely seen these days.....

    In the maroon and white corner, weighing in at (approx) 100 grams....the sun stopping wonder...

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!!!

    * rapturous applause*


    [​IMG]


    Finally, my thanks to Maxum for the cool watch, Manly for doing the comp and to all the players who get in touch with me saying how much they love the hat. (ok, so it's none so far but...now there's bling!)



    GO MANLY!!!

    I grew up in Murwillumbah but left before the Mustangs come into existence. Still had Brothers, Old Boys & Souths.

    I didnt play a lot of league but did play a season in under age for Souths.

    Nice watch GE! I once won a meat tray - French kissed moose meat it was. Bit tough but it tasted sexy.

    Hiya shawn, Yup, I know mur-bah quite well. Maybe too well! I remember as a kid my sister taking me to an old boys game. Though when I went back to murbah the stangs were already established.

    - And lucky for me foz and dce re-signed so I get to keep the watch!

    lol! At least it wasn't 'pulled pork' that seems to be popular over here!
