Frankly all I ever wanted was for Manly to get fair go. In view of the garbage we’ve had thrown at us over the last few years it’s our turn to get some lucky breaks.

The game has always done well when a Manly man has been in charge.So was just revealed in a press conference today acting NRL CEO Andrew Abdo is a Manly supporter.
Apparently when he first moved to OZ he lived in the northern beaches and that's where it all started..
Well its a far cry from our relationship with his predecessor..
Albo's biggest advantage is, that in V'landys, he has a Chairman that will give very clear direction as to the goals and objectives of the NRL .... he will have enough scope to stamp his own personality into the job ... but it won't be a one man show like under GreenTurd ...I was just trying to show my depth of dislike for the Storm and Parra and there is as much chance of me being CEO of the NRL as there is of Parra or the Storm being relocated...
In all seriousness though, Abdo seems OK and will give him a fair go and time to prove his worth. But sports administration is such a political beast and only the very best survive with their reputation in tact. We will soon find out whether he succumbs to the usual suspects like Politis and the Storm lobbyists, although thankfully he has a strong chairman for support.
