    The Manly Daily had mention they were going to promote the Manly v’s Nth Qld - NRL Semi - big time this week!!

    Whilst they have had the normal Footy stories, there has been no mention at all about the FREE buses for the game or a general challenge for Manly supporters to get to the game!

    Last Thursday’s Manly Daily had an impressive full page colour ad for the NRL Semi Final against the Bulldogs (put in and paid by the NRL).

    So far no NRL ad at all this week in the Daily for the Semi at Allianz Stadium for this Fri?

    It really needed to go into TODAY’s version of the Manly Daily, as tomorrow is getting too late!

    Anything in tomorrow’s paper will help, but it has been poor effort by the Manly Daily this week in really promoting the game, which would have assisted, especially even quoting about the direct bus service to Allianz Stadium (Moore Park) for Manly fans from the Northern Beaches. Let's remind the Daily to get something in tomorrow's edition! (also letting people know the junior passes can be used for the game).

    Even our sparring partner the Daily Telegraph has put out a challenge:

    The Manly Daily … all correcting in tomorrow’s edition.

    Manly Sea Eagles will be front page, middle & back … with lots of stories and all the info for the supporters to get to the game.

    Front and back - no middle. It is part of News Ltd :(
    NRL owns the Final Series, so the lack of advertising is their own choice.

    Yesterday I was in Forestville and saw these great Manly Fans' house.
    Its truly awesome.
    They even have a huge 'Manly Daly' Poster of Chez and flags everywhere.:angel:

    Signs are great for B2B:D

    About time. Hopefully this will encourage some spur of the moment fans to attend.

    The only question – how come every other time there was a full page colour ad (in the Manly Daily) by the NRL for the Semi’s involving Manly.

    We had one last week (full page) and both games last year at SFS. None this week??

    Also all the ticket give away promotions have been the Souths v’s Canberra game ? – Channel 9 had 100 double passes for that game as promo advertising all week. This morning on the Big Sports Breakfast Radio show had 5 double passes to the Souths v’s Canberra game?

    I wonder why?
