Before Taniela Paseka made the grade in rugby league, unsure that he would ever get into the NRL, the towering teen followed his dad into long hours of factory work.

Before every Sea Eagles shift he pulls this season, Paseka will take a permanent marker and scrawl "MUM" on one wrist, and "DAD" on the other.

It's a simple tribute to his parents, Leone and Ana, who set him on his way to the NRL, but won't be there to see him in his prime.

His mother passed away when he was five after battling breast cancer.

His father, who would work 9-5 shifts "at the wrong end of the day", to put food on the family table but would still always be front and centre for Paseka's junior footy games every Saturday on no sleep, passed away six weeks ago. :(

I'm starting to worry he's on something? Surely he's not legitimate here? Is Hasler honestly this blind? Just agreed, they don't care about or acknowledge all the losses. Just said Walker to remain at fullback, because other fullbacks dropped the ball last week too. Said everyone is happy.

Something is seriously wrong.

Guess what Des, you may not remember, but you, and your players are about to go down in history as the worst ever losing streak.

My guess is its a power struggle. Hasler is proving a point and is trying to get more power around the roster. He is smart enough to pull some strings to make his point, let us bottom out then demand more power which he will pit forward as the only solution.

Just watched it I agree with what you said. He to me looks so lost and avoid of ideas as to how to get us of this slump.

The old des would never say that they don't care about the previous losses. Its like no one wants to be held accountable for the mess we are in , nothing to see here mentality!!

An interview in which we can actually hear the questions being put!
I'm overjoyed at this great technological breakthrough, let's not spoil the historic achievement by quibbling about what was actually said in reply :)

The moment of Truth ....

Todays thrashing against the Dragons is one thrashing too many that our Proud club should endure

We cannot live in denial.
So we must accept what IS .
But what IS Now
does not mean that it IS going to be in the Future.

When a coach and a team goes through a defeat their character is measured by how they respond and bounce back .

There is no bounce in us , No new ideas , We keep dishing out the same old from the same selected players. No resilience to make a game of it and as a result from our past 12 successive thrashing we are a team with no confidence and have a coach with no answers.
Now this may be only round three but this Mediocrity has been going on from last season .

No excuses !!! . We are all accountable for our circumstances and so is Des who now starts swimming or keeps sinking

The Good news is ...

All things come to an end

These unacceptable consecutive loses are not the end of the hope and resurrection of our club

These consecutive loses will soon lead to the New beginning of the change for the better that always have taken place in our Legendary clubs proud history

The moral of the story ....
Our proud History has proven that tough times never last at Manly
Because Proud and Passionate supporters and Club members
Who are the life line of our Club Always stand by it and carry it over the try line for future success
Our clubs future is in our hands
And we must continue to be the loyal and passionate Manly people that our Club depends on for its revival and survival

A quote from one of the Greatest Motivators of Men/Woman who lifted his peoples spirits and Inspired them to keep believing in them selves and keep striving because tough times do not last but tough people do .

Success is not final , failure is not fatal — it is the courage to continue that counts

Winston Emulates the character our the Great Never say Die Courageous Manly People that shaped our Clubs proud winning history.

Through out our Legendary clubs Merciless Adversities The Loyal Manly souls had the courage to continue and persevere because it takes courage to keep on going when the going gets tough and this is what we all must do in order to truly succeed in the future

Our club would not be celebrating our proud 75th year anniversary if our Great Manly ancestors walked away in time of turmoil

Fellow feathered friends
We are the current generation of hope and Inspiration that our Legendary club has survived from and will continue to thrive from

Let us not let our club down
Walking away is not part of our Great Manly Character and DNA
but sticking around and becoming the Inspiration that turns the cycle around is

I’m still waiting for,

“ we are playing like ****, we don’t deserve our money and we’d like to apologise to the supporters for our sub standard performances and not giving a **** attitudes “.

When that happens tag me in and I’ll listen , in the meantime , no thanks to all these fluff pieces.

Let us put this absurd apology request in perspective feathered friend .....

Waiting for an apology ? For what ?

For being the Manly that faces adversity like all other clubs

But unlike all the other clubs

Always rises above adversity and never gets a spoon ?

The only supporters that should get an apology from their club are all the ones that were disgraced
with wooden spoons
Roosters
Souths
Storm
Penrith
Dragons
etc etc etc ,,,, and the rest
