Besides having a brain??
Terry Randall Bob Fulton and Graham Eadie.
I really enjoy being part of a club that so many people hate up here in C.Q. Almost as much as i love sticking it to them when we roll the Qld based sides.
Menzies, Gartner and a poor bloke with dodgy knees Kosef
Raised on the Northern Beaches, which was lucky as i didn't have to choose. The great club was already here for me lol. Plus loved working at Nth Sydney Oval being a Manly supporter. Watching Eadie run around was a huge draw card.
Good taste and judgement
Also loved the Northern Beaches so much that I moved here 21 years ago.
The fact that I dont have to share Manly,as everyone else hates them,also makes it more intimate
My family took me on my first holiday when I was 5 to.......Manly!! Been a fan ever since.
I possessed that in spades and so did Manly - a match made in heaven!
Alternatively growing up in Harbord (still Harbord to me people) and going to Harbord Public also had a lot to do with it, you couldn't exactly be a doggies supporter (not that i was) as a 7 yr old and live an un disturbed existence.
to be honest, it was the colours.
I grew up in the Penrith area, and played junior footy in the brown and white striped chocalate soldier jersey...and hated it. Caught a game on sevens big leauge when I was 9, saw a bloke named Eadie shovelling blokes out of his way on his way to the try line, and that was that....saved by the maroon and white.
The grass was greener in Manly...I grew up in Bankstown.
But mainly 2V was the reason I loved the Eagles. So much determination a never say die attitude, a great role model!!
I lived in Bilgola Plateau and Bill Bradstreet lived nearby. How many remember Bill?
Born at Mona, raised in Manly, there was never going to be another RL team that I was going to support.
I was raised properly. I was a Manly supporter before I could walk or talk.
When I see babies in Bulldogs, Tigers and Eels colours I usually call DOCS. It's unbelievable the rif raf that have kids these days.
3rd generation fan and was given a manly jumper the day I was born.
As a six year old playing Rugby League for the first time, was taken to Brookvale Oval and saw the Great Bozo play and have been a supporter ever since. All my boys are Manly nuts as well.
We travel from Glen Alpine to watch most Manly home games
I remember Bill Bradstreet very well.
I grew up in the Cronulla area before Cronulla was admitted, and in those days everyone around here was a St George supporter, so I decided to follow a side that hadn't won a competition at this stage and it was either Parra or Manly, the decision was a no brainer, especially with players like Fulton, Bradstreet, Tennant, Veivers.Dennis Ward, Bob Batty.
There are two types of supporters, Manly supporters and those who wish they were Manly supporters.
They played in a Grand Final against Parramatta and my Dad is a Parramatta fan.
2nd generation, id have been disowned
I'll do the same
Started watching in 72 and they had a good pack and a magnificent backline full of attack. I love hard defence but love to watch sweeping bacline moves even more. I just thought they were the best team in the comp and it was proven to be correct for both 72 and 73.
4th generation, the choice was made simple to me... You support manly or you dnt eat
