What's the Buzz? Players threat to sue Manly Sea Eagles by Phil Rothfield (S/T 11/8/13) http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/whats-the-buzz-player-threat-to-sue-manly-sea-eagles/story-fni3fh9n-1226694798300 MANLY are facing an uncertain future and legal action from at least eight players if they are accused by ASADA of doing something wrong. To make matters worse, there is no certainty that majority share-holder and one of Australia's richest men Rick Penn will be there to bail the club out. The Sunday Telegraph understands Penn is considering selling his shares in the club because of his strained relationship with part-owners Quantum. Current players George Rose, Steve Matai, Richard Fa'aoso, Ben Farrar, Brett Stewart and Anthony Watmough have been asked to attend ASADA interviews. Penrith's Dean Whare and Parramatta's Darcy Lussick - both former Eagles - will also be questioned in relation to their playing days at Brookvale. The eight players are adamant they have done nothing wrong. Coach Geoff Toovey and his predecessor and now Canterbury coach Des Hasler will also be interviewed. The players have already been briefed by lawyers about potential outcomes of the club-initiated supplements program. The request to interview beefy prop Rose has at least provided some light banter at Brookvale. Of all the players in the NRL, he would be the last you would think would need any supplement to increase an already massive frame. Any threat of legal action would place enormous pressure on Manly's finances. Despite the team's successes in recent years, the Sea Eagles have been flat-out making an annual profit. The only thing that was working in their favour is the personal wealth of part-owner Penn. Sources have revealed Penn has decided to sell his shares if the right buyer emerges, although he would stay with the club if Quantum got out. [hr] What a headline that says nothing! if they are accused no certainty ...Rick Penn will be there to bail the club out understands... Penn is considering selling his shares So this is Buzz's speculation. No facts. No news. Nothing concrete. Just Buzz's thoughts. Well thanks Buzz.
