MANLY insiders are filthy about an attack on club legend Bob Fulton by former chief executive Ian Thomson, orchestrated by Sydney's master of mystery exclusives. "There has never been a more loyal person to Manly than Bob Fulton,'' Manly official Peter Peters told us yesterday. "He's our greatest ever player and our greatest ever coach, but somehow he gets blamed for things that he hasn't been within 500km of.'' Thomson wrongly claimed Fulton had destabilised the club before Max Delmege opened his wallet to save the Eagles. We understand Fulton is considering legal action against Thomson and the hack, who has run a campaign attacking the league immortal over several years. Fulton has sought, and received, full public apologies in the past from the reporter.
