    Iceberg? What the tip truck?

    Guess what!

    For 366 days a year (yes folks, 2016 is a leap year) we can all visit this site and find out the latest league news (or at least, the latest gossip, rumour and innuendo), we can have a 'discussion' (or argument) with other fans, we can acquire useful information (or learn about totally random facts and phenomena), and generally be amused diverted and informed in a Manly Sea Eagle rugby league environment. Wow!

    Every day.

    For free!!

    And, just once a year, Silvertails asks for something in return.

    No, not that! And relax, it's not for the deeds to your house! Not the hand of your sons or daughters in marriage. Did we even ask to take your original 1977 Torana A9X for a spin around the block? No, of course not (though it's always nice to offer)!

    No, we merely make one very simple request.

    Once each year, around this time, we ask you all to take a moment.

    Close your eyes (optional). And …think!

    Think about what Silvertails means to you, what it means to have this amazing, unique and fully organic resource available at the touch of a button or keypad. 24/7, for all of those 366 days…

    That's it! That's all we ask.

    If you take that time and decide it doesn't mean much, fair enough. This site doesn't rest on its laurels, we (well, mostly our beloved workaholic family man computer guru bloke Dan, affectionately known around here as @Dan) are always looking to improve the experience for site users.

    But…if you do as we ask, and you take those few moments, and you conclude that Silvertails ADDS something good to your life… then you might consider signing up for the famous annual Jan Davis Memorial Tipping Competition!!

    The reason, quite simply, is that this is how the site generates funds needed to keep it in the shape it's in.

    Some of you might not be any good at tipping. No matter, the entry fee will still be put to good use!

    Some of you might have no interest in tipping. No matter!

    Some of you might think you already support the site by paying for premium membership. Well – you do! But you get your money's worth for that, in avoiding the ads.

    Bottom line, the Tipping Comp is the main way that Silvertails addresses the bottom line.

    And if you can't afford to join in, then there's no judgement at all because sadly we live in a world where plenty of people have very little disposable income.

    But if you CAN afford it … then feel free to join up! It's a lot of fun, and it really helps Silvertails. And there will even be some great prizes, so all in all it's an open and shut case.

    Chip and Chase explains how to do it, right here

    Iceberg ahead!
    Whoopsies. Too late.
    Now there's a friggen great hole in the boat.
    The rich will live the poor will freeze.
    Jack will die but Rose's heart will go on.

    You might think I'm just rambling but if SER8 had posted this thread from the Titanic back in 1912 the boat crew would have realised that it was just the tip of a giant iceberg. The news would have gone viral and and things may have turned out differently.
    Also, the people who paid for Silvertails Tipping Comp would have been on the rescue boats while the tight arses - like Jack - were in the ocean.
    Save yourselves and join the tipping comp.:p

    My time has finally come - I have signed up for the tipping comp, AND as Premium member..... time to become a proper, active supporter.

    After all - I have only been casually reading this site for about 10 years.... I felt like it was time to commit!

    Thanks all for your hard work.

    Hopefully some of the other casual observers will follow suit.

    I hope so too. In all honesty, it was complete laziness on my part not to contribute sooner - so I need to make up for lost time.

    I live interstate in Melbourne (have been living overseas for the last 3 years) but am heading to Brookie for the first time in a few seasons this Friday night (does that count as a REAL supporter?) and tbh, I am bloody optimistic about this season.
