    The other thread went way off topic, if we keep discussing the issue in that thread, there is a good chance that we will find it difficult to stay on topic.
    As such I have started this thread to discuss further.

    A summary of where we are at with that last thread.

    The current rumours
    1. Brett stewart is a done deal and just waiting to finalise and then announce it
    2. Brett Stewart has signed with Le Catalans dragons from 2013 and beyond but contract depends on injuries

    What we actually know
    nothing, well we know nothing has been announced

    what we hope will happen
    Brett will play for Manly forever and be young and vital forever

    The question
    Has he re-signed

    Discuss

    I cannot see him going anywere else , and as mentioned in the old thread of him not being happy by a manly offer , I dont think Manly would ever doubt his $$ price only the years on the contract. Like I said its all speculation I heard the same as others have, that it was a done deal at manly lets hope this is true.

    Im confident Manly and Brett will do the right thing :) ! Would love an announcement before game day of Snake re signing

    agreed, it's the fact it is dragging on so long that is a worry. Would love to hear he has signed and be done with it.

    You missed another question..

    Can this thread eclipse the Keiran Forum Thread for replies?

    From my perspective I would have thought the club would have signed him up already. It's confusing why he hasn't been given it's been going since Feb this year.

    If was so easy then it would have been done already - see tweet from the club in feb (??) that conversations with Brett were progressing well

    Therefore there has to be something in the other offers on the table.

    If Brett was leaving Manly to ESL wouldnt you think that it would have been announced already? The team can use Brett's departure as motivation to win the comp this year. But I'm 100% confident that he has been resigned but for some reason Manly haven't announced it or maybe Manly are waiting for what the cap increase will be for 2013 so we know how much more we can offer Brett!

    For someone who wasn't going to be around here much.....mr Invisible your sure popping up in a lot of places.

    I think Snake has obviously received a substantial overseas offer and is waiting to see if Manly can get close. Obviously he would like to stay, however the money may be a bit too good. Hope he stays obviously.....good to see us buying some young stars though as it is indicative that the club while experiencing current glory, still has an eye on the future.

    Maybe both sides are stuck on the 3 years vs 4 years and neither side will budge, its not like you can pick a middle ground of 3 1/2 years and move on.

    The answer is obvious. He has signed with the dogs and did so several months ago. He will continue to negotiate in good faith but for "confusing" reasons he'll continue to move the goalposts during these negotiations.

    He'll announce that he's signed with the dogs the day after we win the 2013 premiership defeating the Bulldogs 41-0. Following him to the dogs will be the remainder of our roster.
