    No thank you.

    As much as I love the club, I am not putting my money/retirement funds anywhere near footballers or anything associated with them.

    rusty have you seen the video.. amp are administrators still... sea eagles just get a percentage of the annual fees from the members it has..

    Right, that sounds ok. I figured someone at the club were going to manage the funds.

    You were right the first time Rusty, go with that instinct and steer clear.

    some things arent worth risking mate, Super is too important to make decisions based on what football team I support.

    i had a think about im going to send an email,  if its safe secure im doing it AMP wont go bust, i think its an incentive for the sea eagles if they can attract as many customers as possible, it benefits the sea eagles beacuse they get a percentage, its basically amp with a different name  to assist the sea eagles..

    Look how amateurish the video is, and their presentation is in general, and ask yourself, do I want these people playing with my future?

    I'm perturbed this lost even got their foot in the door, let alone the opportunity to piggy back this comedy company stuff off the back of the Manly brand.

    I see they emailed out a 2nd time today with the same embarrassing video links etc.  I take it the initial response was far from overwhelming.

    I actually like the idea. It's way more difficult to sell a concept then it is to sell something tangible. It will take time but I think the idea is a potential winner.
    No doubt the guys at Sports Super will be reviewing and revising their marketing approach. I would also think they may want to change their (what looks like) outdated and very basic logo and to get someone like Killer to replace Tooves in the promo. Maybe if they practiced their lines just a couple of times first, they may not look like they are reading a script.
    The concept is right but the delivery has looked somewhat amateurish and rushed.

    I've started a charity called go manly enterprises - the more cash you give me, the bigger manly supporter you are. 

    I even promise to paint the new yacht I buy in maroon and white.

    I agree re the overall approach, including a video on you tube (not even a dedicated page etc) looks like amateurish - enough for me to not even consider it
