    What are the chances of us giving young hoppa a life line once released from prison..... Had plenty of talent.

    As long as he comes out um... not being a massive dickhead. Reformed - yes. Same as before - no.

    I hope he can come back and play for Manly once he has served his time, and reformed his behaviour

    I don't think that there is a Hopoate in the whole world that I would want to see in our team...

    I saw his game against Penrith. I had no idea who he was so raced down and bought a program. He is very talented but gee he would have to change his behavior on and off the field.

    He should not be tarred by the 'Sins of the Father'. Everyone deserves a second chance. But JUST ONE 2nd chance, and not a third fourth and fifth. And if he is given the opportunity, he should be made very clear about what his obligations are and that he HAS JUST 1 CHANCE.
    Then, we might find, he is a great backline player. One cant help thinking that his time inside will have done him more harm than good. But who knows.

    Jamil was on his 2nd chance after Parra flicked him for bad behaviour, even had warnings from Manly.:mad:

    Players should wait for their 2nd chances, till after those who are waiting for their 1st, get their go @:cool:

    Pretty sure the kid has had a few chances already. Perhaps not all incidents were as serious, but there have been a lot of opportunities for him to get his footballing career on-track, and he's failed 'til now.

    I don't begrudge society giving him another chance once he's out on the streets, but with a plethora of kids in the system, I wouldn't waste my time earmarking him for Manly colours.

    No, hes out of chances, the Manly club has bent over backwards to help the Hopoates over the years and what do we get in return? Trouble and disloyalty, Move on please!

    He is a talent but doubt that the NRL will allow his contract to be registered for 12 months after he gets out of jail.

    Two years out of the game and I fear that he will be as bad as his brother Will and cousin Albert who lost most of their talent while away from the game for the same length of time.

    Yep. I've seen Bonny (John Junior) Hoppa play and he looks very promising.

    Bonny Hoppa! Now that's a name that's sure to catch on.
    He will have a cult following if he makes the top grade.

    Would put a line through Jamil.

    Will's career took a massive dive because he took two years away from the game. Jamil being away from the game due to his sentence would probably have the same effect with regards to coming back and being out of his depth.

    Don't think he is worth the trouble either.

    I don't want to paint every Hopoate with the same brush, but how much has Manly bent over backwards to help them and how often have we been burnt because of it?

    John was talented, but had Les Boyd like brain explosions on the field and lets face it, Will would not have even played in our 2011 premiership (or at best would have been on the bench) if the Wolfman hadn't broken his neck in the game against Melbourne. How he even got picked for Origin this year is one for Great Mysteries of the World.

    If there are more Hopoate's coming through the lower grades who have talent then fine, bring them along. But any trouble and its goodbye and the club should wipe their hands of the whole family.

    We could end up with half a team of Hoppas and Chee-Kams in a few years
