    MANLY 1978 Season

    ADDENDUM: Of course, it is always possible that the GF that year was shown live outside of Sydney (in regional NSW, etc. on ABC Channel 5A) but if it was I wouldn't have known about that at the time...

    MANLY 1978 Season

    Well if Channel 2 showed the Grand Final that year, they certainly didn't show it live. I remember the day well...because the game wasn't on TV, my family went down to Balmoral Beach, where I listened to Frank Hyde's 2SM broadcast on my transistor radio instead. Believe me, as a 10 year old...

    MANLY 1978 Season

    I don't know how Won Casey could have "outrated" Rex Mossop in calling rugby league for Channel 9 in 1971...that was the year of the TV blackout, when no Sydney Premiership matches were televised at all. Even the Grand Final between Souths and St. George wasn't shown live that year...merely a...

    MANLY 1978 Season

    "...Coventry, his home town in the north of England". This journalist needed to stop drooling over John Gray for a minute, and do her research a bit more carefully...Coventry isn't in the north of England, it's in the Midlands, not far from Birmingham. 😐

    What Is A Successful Season?

    The Queen's Death

    On the contrary...I remember it very well. Perhaps YOU do not. Never mind.

    The Queen's Death

    "Australian republic: yes or no?" Are you KIDDING? That would be like walking into a real estate agent's office and buying "a house", without being offered any choice or even an idea of the kind of house you were being sold, leaving it entirely up to the estate agent to decide what you ended up...

    The Queen's Death

    Except that it won't happen like that. The 1999 referendum showed us one thing: the Australian public won't vote for a republic where the President/Governor/whatever you call it is appointed by the Parliament. Direct election is the only option likely to be approved by a majorty of voters in a...

    The Queen's Death

    The late Clive James once pointed out that every country in the world that has a constitutional monarchy is a A claim the various republics around the world cannot even begin to match. So be careful what you wish for...

    Why do you support Manly?

    Point of order: I think you mean Liverpool in the old Football League First Division, if we are talking early 80s here (when Les Boyd was playing for Manly). The EPL did not begin until 1992... 🙂

    Why do the refs hate Manly so much?

    The referee's personal feelings about this club or that club should have no bearing on their performance on the field. After all, they are supposed to be professionals, and their job is to handle the game impartially and without bias for or against either side. Clearly this is not happening in...

    Things i dont want to hear in 2022.

    And it wasn't true even then. ALL of those Souths players left of their own accord, because the club was messing them around over contract negotiations. Arko offered each of them a straight deal, which they took. But in each case, THEY approached HIM, not the other way around...there was NO...

    Storm v Penrith ( Finals week 3 2021 )

    And surely not Souths in 2014? Manly supporters do NOT cheer for Souths...not for any reason, ever. Period.

    Post-Game Discussion Storm v Manly [Finals 1, 2021]

    Our meek surrender against Souths in the 1970 GF would take some beating... 🙁

    4 Pines Park

    Well, mock if you wish...but do you know ANYONE who ever actually called Brookie "Lottoland"? I don't.

    I believe the going rate is thirty pieces of silver... 😡

    4 Pines Park

    No, but that's not the point...some things shouldn't be for sale, and the name of your ground is one of them. I never, ever called it Lottoland, and I won't be calling it by this new name either. It's Brookvale Oval to me, and to every true Manly fan.

    Happy days .. but WTF ..

    "Neighbors"? Do you live in the USA? In this country we have "neighbours", not "neighbors".
