Thought I'd bring this back up after seeing a query in another thread on nicknames.
I still think and agree with @Budgewoi Eagle that we should have a sticky thread listing nicknames for every player. What a great time to do it before the season starts! If there are players without nicknames...
He's supposedly on $425K/season, which seems low imo but if true may not be so much of an issue and would surely be doable. The Cheese would be ideal for us.
What's more of an issue is having a no. 9 already and fitting him in our 2021 cap when he's going to spend most, if not all, of it on the...
Kevin Moore was coach when he made his debut for the Dogs but Des sure played a big part in his 1st grade career and not surprising at all he's "definitely the best coach he's ever had".
You're right he's also having a dig, particularly at Maguire.
Thank you for posting this @BOZO. I saw it yesterday and wanted to post it here but I'm technically challenged and also where to post it! Amazed Des is Reynolds best coach and I thought it a very insightful interview - and believable as far as Des is concerned.
Will's on much higher $ than Walker. He's now a Dog through and through and highly doubt he'd return to Manly on less money. Wouldn't want a Hopoate near us anyway.
Walker's got one year left to redeem, or at least prove, himself. We've got plenty of younger backups should he fail.
Huge congratulations to Max & @Mrs D on the birth of their long-awaited boy/girl twins Tommy and Lexie! I saw on FB the twins are in a special care nursery but are not on oxygen, breathing themselves and everyone is well and ecstatic. A wonderful outcome for them :party: :party:
From one twin...
Funny, I was going to say something similar. Chatted with Josh Stuart at the club one day - a real nice guy and staunch Manly fan.
On a negative note, the one I despised wearing our jersey was Kimmorley - all the circus when he came to the Eagles, would never appear at any promotion or fan day...
Well said @BOZO
I'd normally be celebrating and bringing in the New Year in regional NSW. Unfortunately well and truly locked down in the Northern Beaches red zone and it sux!
So I'm going to eat, drink and be merry....at home.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy & Safe New Year :party: and Go...
