Des can go and take as many coaching staff, recruiters and players as he wants, but there is one thing that he canâ€™t take, and thatâ€™s the soul of the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. With all the doom and gloom that has been on here during the last week, here are 5 positive points that i have come up with because of Des leaving. Point 1 â€“ Press conferences With Des gone, we can actually start to somewhat enjoy press conferences again. Over the last couple of years i donâ€™t even bother with them anymore. Des is too predictable. Question, deflection, under the radar, how good is the other team... blah blah. Plenty on here have complained that we donâ€™t get enough exposure with Des, well now that will all change. With the potential for Toovey, or even Ricky to be at the helm, how good will press conferences be in the future. For many years i have watched with envy as rival coaches have put in Emmy winning performances in the press conferences. Tim Sheen isnâ€™t afraid to speak his mind, and come to press conferences with those famous 9 oâ€™clock shadows. And who can go past Matty Elliot with some of the best ever press conferences in history after he apparently lost his mind at the Panthers. With Toovey we will get an improvement (based on his showing in the NRL on FOX program during the finals series). And if we go with Ricky, well, we are bound to get some cracking press conferences during the year. I mean seriously, sometimes you just have no idea what will be coming out of that manâ€™s mouth. At least it will have us on the edge of our seats! Point 2 â€“ The board With Des gone, so too apparently will the board be gone at the Leagues, and even the Football club. It will give supporters the impetus to elect a new, fresh board at the next elections. This will give the new coach and club a fresh start to start the re-building faze again. Point 3 â€“ That head of hair I mean seriously, watching Des talk can be hypnotic at times. Why else is it that Des gets away with saying less to the press then a mute, deaf man. Itâ€™s his hair! Those magnificent locks flowing in the breeze have mesmerised us for years. I have seen many times Journalistsâ€™ simply staring at Des, nodding with blank looks on their faces. Well with Toovey or Ricky, we will finally be snapped out of the daze and can now concentrate on the interviews. Point 4 â€“ The Soul of Manly No coach, player, or even the people in charge are above the Football Club. We all have to remember that. I donâ€™t care who you are, you are always replaceable. As long as the club can start to be financial, and our long term future is secured, we are right. No player, coach or staff member lasts, or stays, forever. Weâ€™ll survive just like we have for the last 60 years. Through ups and downs we are still here, and i believe that we will be here for another 60 years to come. Point 5 â€“ The 5 year plan Just like when Des arrived like a Knight in shining armour, so too will the next coach. The 5 year plan will aim to have us back at the peak of our powers within 5 years. Why 5 years you ask? Well with players bound to be either squeezed out due to salary cap issues, or the Des factor, 5 years is a good time-frame to build the club back to the top, just like Des did. How good would that be? Another Premiership by 2016!!
