    Why is it that one of the few times Zorba speaks to the papers(not on his radio gig)he co-operates with the Tele on a piece about being caught flirting on-line.Seems like the journo was at the seminar,so why the f#*k would he allow that?

    To me it appears he has to many conflicts of interest to be suitable for the job..

    I agree, this should have been a positive news story for the club, not a bash our players fest.

    I bet what has happened is that whoever wrote the piece was given access and permission and then it was assumed they would write a fluff piece on Manly getting tough on Social Media, then they have gone and done the opposite.

    I hardly think it was Zorba's fault that the tele put their spin on it and made it negative. Positive stories about Manly just don't sell their papers.

    I can see how this was probably intentioned as positive and the Newspapers decided to spin it a different way

    I agree. It's all Lowe's fault.

    lmao..well i did read where someone was saying he should be out there more not just promoting them in the manly daily.. so this is what happens when he tries to get it out there .. it gets twisted around & comes back to bite us .. just leave him with manly daily .. ;)

    Bingo.

    I'm interested to see why out of all sixteen clubs who took part in this exercise, Manly was the one that generated front page news? It seems that we can still sell papers...

    They're threatening Brett not to sue them. They're showing how they can tear him & the club to shreds if they want to, even with no ammo.

    Wheel, the trial was @ http://manly-daily.whereilive.com.au/sport/story/sharks-feel-the-bite/ but we had already got better coverage by our Silvertails attendees.

    Hmm... Not sure mate, don't work at the MD anymore - I know there was a match report up on the website on the night of the trial though?

    I read the MD story, thought it was far more reasonable! Actually said some things about how Manly had been stitched up. The pictures nicked from Choc's facebook page had me scratching my head though. Not sure what purpose they served other than for shock value?
