    Is Des Losing his Mojo?

    I'll stick with Des too. I don't particularly like Cartwright. Maybe Dean Pay would make a good assistant.

    Who wore it better?

    Didn't Mitchell also get fined for Covid breaches on his property. Was it 10 or 20 grand partially suspended? Does he forfeit the whole fine now? Why isn't AFB afforded the same benefit?

    Grant Atkins abused by AFB

    "Parish pump", FitzSimons? If the comp is so low rent why is such a journalistic giant such as yourself even commenting on it? May he needs to get back to editing his next Father's day doorstopper. It could always so with more commas.

    Grant Atkins abused by AFB

    Didn't that cost him a payout. His and the late Rebecca Wilson's persual of Brett was unforgivable.

    Grant Atkins abused by AFB

    A bottom feeder like FitzSimons has a fairly predictable modus operandi. He can't seem to sustain rational arguments with his peers about serious issues and as a predictor of political trends he has a batting strike rate of about 0.2 %. So what is his stock-in-trade? Ridiculing the statements of...

    Precedents set , i think

    I cant link to it at present but there is a classic Manly vs Tigers match from the 70s when Neil Pringle is penalised by Greg Hartley and he runs up and absolutely monsters Hartley. Hartley cool as a cucumber just walks him another 10. Calling someone that name is cruel but whatever happened to...

    Hadley wants AFB gone for 8 weeks

    I loathe Hadley as well. Rolled Gold hypocrite. However, Peter Wicks is not exactly an ideological bedfellow of Hadley. interesting piece he wrote but Wicks is not exactly unbiased when he appears to be very much on the far, far left of just about everyone.

    Grant Atkins abused by AFB

    If the bunker ref was a "P.O.G", Person of Girth, AFB would have gotten away with calling him a "stupid fat C@#%". It's the one insult that everyone gets away with. I say that as someone who is on the "ample" side.

    The Sheridan Stand at the SCG and what it meant to me!!

    I went to all the 78 finals except the 2 replays ( vs Eels and Sharks). I was 14 and travelled from SW Sydney with a schoolmate to the games. It was a real event. Lots of comraderie with us fans being led by Lyall Roberts (he was such a big fan, I wonder whatever happened to him?). In those days...

    Favourite player(s) from other clubs....

    Always loved watching Benji Marshall. He is so naturally gifted even today he is wonderful to watch.

    First Manly game you went to ??

    My first was Manly vs Easts SCG June 1975. Sat in the old Brewongle Stand with my Roosters supporting older sister (she was a Russell Fairfax fan). I think the Roosters won 11-10 or something similar. I think to win the game Fairfax and John Brass both kicked field goals with one of them being...

    'Desperate situation': SCG Trust urges members not to walk away

    My memory too. Nine ran a promo that said the concert would " make Hot August Night seem like a sunday school picnic". Sure. What I remember is that Cadbury sponsored he show and the great man did live ads. Brissie Kid thanks for the link to Longfellow Serenade. Fancy writing a song where you...

    'Desperate situation': SCG Trust urges members not to walk away

    Does anyone remember Neil Diamond doing a concert at the old Sportsground in 1976? It was broadcast live on Channel Nine. Quite an event in those days.
