    You can also now buy t-shirts which say Central Coast north Sydney bears premiers 2013?  At least you can get a few years wear out of them before they are obsolete.

    Anyone have a MANLY WARRINGAH 1995 PREMIERS T-Shirt?.

    The one that should have been. One of the best Manly sides that just didn't do it on big day.

    I had one of those from 1995.  Mum got it for me for about $3.

    Morally we're the 1995 and 1997 Premiers.

    Just like Norths won the grand final's in 1921 and 1922.

    Agreed.  1995 a forward pass and a seventh tackle play got the first try for the dogs.

    And in 1997 Robbie O'Davis was at least 2 inches short of the line when he grounded the ball.  Regardless of other chemical help they might have had.

    That's a terrible looking t-shirt for any team winning the trophy. 

    Since it's dropped in value, maybe their fans can now afford it.  That's what you get for chucking coins... the Parra fan's version of investment.

    [/quote]  Plus on their penultimate try there was a pass a mile forward, caught by Fletcher.

    In 1997 Toovs was deliberately stomped on in the last few minutes under the nose of that ref dickhead and we should have got a penalty.  Druggos the lot of them.  Hate and despise all drugcastle players and supporters.

    Don't make me laugh ! ! !

    Since Grand Finals did not start in their current form at the end of every season until 1954, Norths have never won a Grand Final let alone appear in one.  The closest that they have ever been to winning a Grand Final was in 1943 when they appeared in their one and only Grand Final which was the result of a "right of challenge" system (which only called for a Grand Final if the Minor Premiers had lost a Semi-Final or Final) but in this instance Newtown thrashed them 34 to 7.

    Premiers in 1921 and 1922 yes but definitely not Grand Final winners.

    The only reason Norths won anything was because the north shore toffs refused to fight in the Great War and then they insulated themselves from the Spanish influenza that ravaged the rest of Sydney.

    Tooks....even I can admit that Manly were robbed for "various" reasons against The Knights mate. The cheats should have been stripped of their Premiership, and it should have been handed to the rightful winners in - well, US (Manly).

    And guys - re: Bears winning in 21/22.

    When Man U, Chelsea or The Gunners win their competition (EPL), have they won their Premiership? Realistically, yeah.

    FFS, Bears supporters have suffered enough already just having to support that club in the 1st place. Don't begrudge them that little fantasy.

    Ryan I don't pity them I despise them - having to rely on a 'fantasy' than happened prior to the Great Depression just goes to show why Manly supporters should treat them with disdain.

    PS You do make a good point that they won those titles fairly and those were the rules they played to in that era - however knowing their history there is no doubt they would have choked in a Grand Final had it been played

    That comes from living in such a forgettable place.  I'd say your memories of that day are addled from the petrol fumes and bogan roars wafting down the mountain.
