    A Facebook post this morning though haven't seen any news reports


    CONTROVERSIAL figure Bob Reilly has resigned from the Manly Leagues Club board. His departure was sudden and quiet. Already Reilly's photo has come down from the director's board.



    Leagues Club chairman David Costello confirmed: "Mr Reilly tendered his resignation and it was accepted." He will be replaced by Graham Houston. Meanwhile, Manly chief operating officer David Perry is under increasing pressure from fans to retain star fullback Brett Stewart.

    Interesting, if true good luck to him. I have never had any real issues with the bloke and the effort he has put in for the club.

    It will be interesting to see if this leads to stability or whether it will make things worse

    Remember that the Leagues Club board is different to the Football Club board.

    But isn't Reilly's post on the FC as the Leagues club rep? Would assume he would relinquish that spot by virtue of his resignation

    How is Perry under the pump from fans to re-sign Stewart? As most right minded people have said, if that overseas offer is on the table, take it up !!

    If we re-sign Brett, great, that would be my preference. If he goes - it happens.

    The media would LOVE us to pay Brett $800k per season or something to stifle our ability to sign other players - hopefully Perry isn't that silly.

    RE: Reilly. The sooner he is just a fan, and has no input, the better for the club as a whole - and I like him as a person. Hopefully he takes his "circle of trust" with him, and we have a professional board, run by appropriate assets.

    The Manly Board continued harrassment by the News Ltd press is boring

    We the Fans just want the info on who is playing on the field - the backroom is only of interest to the people agitating for control of it :exclamation:

    This 'spectacular demise' has been in side columns for a week now in the both the DT and the Manly Daily. :dodgy:

    As far as Bob resigning from the leagues club it means nothing to MWSE ltd as the leagues club is no longer a share holder.
    I am assuming he is still chairman of the footy club which owns 13% approx and is still a board member of the nrl club.

    Not really news worthy other to mislead the many people who don't know the workings of the club.

    The line about perry under Preasure from fans to retain Brett Stewart is just a rehash of the same story about Dce and foran. They are one trick ponies at holt street.

    Nice to see the Tele cares so much about Brett's future after they hung up out to dry a few years ago.

      Of course it's not Brett's future they care about, just the usual generating negative press about the greatest team in the modern era. They can't handle Manly's awesomeness.

      A mid season transfer with Manly continuing to pay Reilly's salary for the rest of this season.

      Hasler has then signed him on from 2013 as his chauffeur/bodyguard to get around the salary cap.

      I heard from a friend of mine that someone said that they saw Hasler and Reilly having lunch at McDonalds Lakemba last week. Reilly was then seen to get into his car carrying several large brown paper bags which were thought to possibly contain either cash or McHappy meals.
