    How Long have you been a Manly fan? Since the late 60s as a little kid when Manly were the bridesmaids and got bashed by Souths at the end of every season.

    What convinced you to follow the Sea Eagles? My grandfather took me to the SCG in 1970 and then Brookie in 72. I was hooked then, though as a country cousin I only ever got to see them once a year at best.

    Name your favourite Manly memory? Manly winning in 72, also being at 87 and 96 GF, being at Brookie in 94 to beat Dragons 61-0.

    What is your favourite Manly uniform? The 72/73 GF strip though I like the current one.

    What is your favourite Manly game? Probably the 61-0 thrashing of the Dragons and several of the victories over Brisbane in 94/95.

    Worst Manly memory? 82 GF was depressing. 97 wasn't much better! The Northern Eagles was shocking

    What was your support during the merger: I went missing in action. I went from 10 games a season to nothing - they weren't Manly and there was no heart in the club. I was in mourning for three years.

    All time favourite player(s)? Bozo, Dale Shearer, Beaver.

    Current favourite player(s)? Beaver, Brent Kite.

    How are you a True Supporter? I am not because I frequent rebel left-wing sites!!! :lol:

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2006? I think we have a chance of making the top 4 with a good run with injuries and if our front row stands up. I can't realisitically see us winning though would love nothing more.

    How Long have you been a Manly fan? 26 years, 6 months and 3 weeks. Born and bred maroon and white.

    What convinced you to follow the Sea Eagles? There was never any choice - it just fit perfectly with the local team colours being maroon and white as well as my old mans football team (soccer) in scotland being hearts also maroon and white.

    Name your favourite Manly memory? 96 GF and the spud/chirf wars in that era

    What is your favourite Manly uniform? 87 and todays

    How are you a True Supporter? Since i started going to watch manly play again after superleague first grade has only lost 2 games with me there from around 30.

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2005? I reakon tehy will just make they 8 after beating Canberra in the final round. In the semis they will get flogged by parra.

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2006? With an engine room that appears to be finally firing on all cylinders and 2 playmakers in the team a top 4 finish is a must.

    How Long have you been a Manly fan?
    Since I was born

    What convinced you to follow the Sea Eagles?
    Born & bred manly supporter. I see it not as a choice but a birth right

    Name your favourite Manly memory?
    Sitting with my dad at the score board end near the fence on the white seats watching Jack elsegood streak up the sideline for a try

    What is your favourite Manly uniform?
    80’s maroon with white stripes, though I am fairly partial to the current one

    What is your favourite Manly game?
    Tough one to call, the panthers game at brookie last year will forever be in my memory as a great game though

    Worst Manly memory?
    Last year as well. Cronulla showing us utter and complete disrespect

    What was your support during the merger:
    I went to at least 8 home games per season. I still chanted “Come on Manly”

    All time favourite player(s)?
    Les Boyd, the angriest of the angry little smurfs
    Lyons
    Toovey
    Carol

    Current favourite player(s)?
    Dunley – an angry smurf of the new breed

    How are you a True Supporter?
    I don’t understand the term. I like watching football, I like watching manly play football and want manly to win. I go to every home game I can including trials and also many away games including long distance travel. I yell until I am hoarse. Its football it is supposed to be fun and not a competition of who supports a team better or worse. Because to be honest I don’t give a ****. I will still go to the footy and still spend time with my mates at the footy and still follow manly. If theo others want to compare dick sizes they should grow one first!

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2006?
    At this stage we will make the 8 but I haven’t seen how the other teams are playing yet.

    Fonz - is Paul Stephenson your love-child or what? Anyone who says as a Manly fan that Paul Harragon is their favourite all-time player, and that Paul Stephenson is their favourite current Manly player has rocks for brains.

    -Since 1987, born into a manly supporting family!

    What convinced you to follow the Sea Eagles?

    -The 90's era for me, growing up watching the mighty eagles play!

    Name your favourite Manly memory?

    -When i was a young bloke, we had travelled from the far north coast of NSW to the SFS to watch the eagles play, and matty ridge kicked for touch and my old man caught the ball.

    What is your favourite Manly uniform?

    -1987, got a 87 jersey for my birthday last year, wear it to every game i get to, home and away.

    What is your favourite Manly game?

    -The mighty comeback against the panthers

    Worst Manly memory?

    - The 1997 grand final. I was ten years old, and when darren albert scored in the final seconds, i burst into tears, and at that point i knew it was manly till i die

    What was your support during the merger:

    - I followed the crowd, as i was only a young bloke, all i wanted to do was watch the eagles play.

    All time favourite player(s)?

    -Cliffy Lyons, Matthew Ridge, Geoff Toovey.

    -Watmough and Beaver.

    How are you a True Supporter?

    -Only ever supported one team, and when we were absolutley belted each week, and people asked why i followed them, i said because one day when we win the grandfinal, i can say to myself that i was there through the good and the bad times, and the satisfaction of winning a grandfinal will never be so sweet!

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2006? Top eight for sure, predicting a 4th place finish in the finals.

    I reckon that unless your bum was smacked by a doctor at Manly Hospital when you were born you could never be classified as a 'real' true supporter.

    BTW mine was!

    Before you all start firing up this is a joke

    How Long have you been a Manly fan?

    + Since The Bears were made defunct. That means 3 years as Sea Eagles (not taking into consideration Nth Eagles). I'm actually glad in hindsight The Bears folded, because I have never enjoyed footy as much as since I have been a Manly fan...and that's honestly thanks to a lot of you fellas...

    What convinced you to follow the Sea Eagles?

    + Steve Menzies. Apart from being one of my favourite players (as a Bears fan), he was loyal, and I thought I would show him that same level of respect.

    Name your favourite Manly memory?

    + John Hopoate smashing Amos Roberts at Brookvale Oval. Amos comes out in the media the next day and says:- "Sheesh, Hoppa must have seen targets on me all day. He played well, and smashed me".

    LoL.

    What is your favourite Manly uniform?

    + 2006.

    What is your favourite Manly game?

    + Come back win over Penrith @ Brookie. We all went off our chops !!!

    Worst Manly memory?

    + St George coming back to beat us after all their crowd had come home conceding....

    What was your support during the merger:

    + That The Bears would become The Bears again.

    All time favourite player(s)?

    + Mark O'Mealey, Matt Orford, Steve Bell, Anthony Watmough

    Current favourite player(s)?

    + As above apart from O'Mealey.

    How are you a True Supporter?

    + I try to drum up corporate support / sponsorship for the club (successfully in the past as well).
    I am a Member from year 1.
    I only buy clothes and stuff at the club so they get the profits.
    I go to most of the games.
    I put up with you lot.

    How do you rate Manly's chances in 2006?

    + Better than fair. 3rd - 4th.
