    Mayer to Parra

    My understanding was that it was betfair or some other betting agency that wanted to sponsor us as a major sponsor but the NRL knocked it back (due to their arrangements with TAB) .... so what we still should have an alternative sponsor (+ we already rely on Penn Health as another sponsor) .....

    Mayer to Parra

    Gees I wish I knew the inside workings of Manly well enough to be so certain what a genius Mayer is. Perhaps you could explain why the premiers don't have a sponsor for the back of their jumpers and who got sacked for the disgraceful, perhaps season destroying, season launch party? Mayer might...

    Kerry sibraa gone

    I think you are being hard on Sibraa. My clear recollection of the original plan when Max saved the club was that the football club would use membership monies to buy back shares. Over the years this would generate a revenue base and result in ownership of the club returning to members. If...

    News: ATO raises Delmege solvency concerns

    The risk factor in general for a property investor no doubt rises in a recession but that doesn't mean Delemege (or anyother property developer) is necessarily in trouble. The ATO going to the court to have Delemege wound up sounds dramatic but it is their (and any reasonably sized business)...

    News: ATO raises Delmege solvency concerns

    A few comments -: 1. whatever your intention the article was posted as if it is current news, as if something has happened recently to indicate solvency issues for Max ... it is misrepresentation at best 2. if our sponsors can simply walk away because they don't like our CEO then I'd be asking...

    Where's Jamie ????

    Lyons just isn't cutting it ..... what a waste of money he has proven to be so far ..... but who do you play at5/8?? Beaver doesn't have the ball skills to be a 5/8 ....... Wells might be worth a try, move Lyons to the Centres and drop Bell who is hopelessly out of form and clearly lacks confidence

    Ballin goes ok but he doesn't do enough from dummy half .... 2 or 3 dashes from dummy half per game are not enough ...... Le Strange to the bench at a minimum ...... if Ballin was only playing 50 minutes he would have the energy to do more from dummy half ...... Cuthbertson needs time in premier...

    Any improvers under Hasler?

    I am loathe to criticise Dessie .... but the defensive strategy of not sprinting up, waiting back & sliding might have worked in the mid-90s but it doesn't seem to work these days. We had blokes last night putting in some huge hits eg Bryant, Watty & Kylie but it seemed to be one off individual...

    Football Club Membership Renewal - My Experience 02 Feb 2006

    Funny you should say that ... I caught up with my brother recently who joined up last year at the leagues club after the Storm game. He never received anything ie no cap, no card, no letters etc .... I told him to follow it up but he is too apathetic ...... I don't think he got a receipt either...

    Membership manager

    If he is employed fulltime then his KPI is easy to calculate - increased revenue from memberships = the cost of his employment x say 6 = $50k x 6 = $300k divided by say $100/membership = 3000 new members ..... 3000 + 2000 existing members = 5000 members by year end

    Crusher Cleal

    I've still got a lot of time for Cleal Jnr ...... if he could give himself a chance by not being constantly suspended .... he is only young, will "fill out" in future years, has pretty good speed and a bit of mongrel about him ...... give him time

    From memory the renewal forms didn't come out until March / April last year ..... I've searched the web site and I can't find any "news" on when the new ones will be available for next year. I firmly believe if you are a Manly fan then you should cough up the $80 a year membership. I don't...

    I can't get my online account thingo to work at the official website ..... and I don't want to necessarily give some of you a free shot at admin ..... but I think it is very poor form that you can't buy memberships before Xmas?? I know of a couple of people I could give them to as Xmas...

    I've no idea ..... my understanding was that the Angels had secured a $250k sponsorship (perhaps over more than one year) ...... that money goes to the Anels who in turn could contribute to the football team..... I don't believe Adecco sponsor the footie team directly (but I wouldn't know!).

    Mata' funny you should mention the Angels .... didn't they get a $250k sponsorship from Adecco (speaking of companies and dodgie advertising)??

    Dykes is not a first grader ...... his attack consists of running across field and passing anywhere and his defense is worse! I'd rather we give a kid a go .... at least then there is some chance of success.

    I'd be very pleasantly surprised if Ryan's sponsorship figures are correct ...... 112 sponsors kicking in over 20k each. If they do then we are ok because if you add this extra $2m onto my original $8m total revenue estimate we reach the magical $10m. The NRL grant is definitely going up in...

    It does puzzle me that with a salary cap of $3.25m it costs $10m to run a club ....... as an accountant I am sure it would be easy to cut some fat! I'm sure in the CEO's job description (as listed/described on MSE at the time of appointment) the key criterion was the ability to sell the...

    I notice a few posters have referred to the possibility of Manly again facing liquidity problems in 18 months if crowds etc are down. Are you able to expand on these comments? On the assumption it costs $10m pa to be a serious player, by my calcs we will struggle. I have obviously made some...

    For god's sake Chris Anderson to coach the eagles???? Mr Super League himself ...... ask sharks fans what they think of him ..... he set the sharks back 10 years and then in typical mercenary form rushed over to ruin some Welsh rugby team ......
