Agree, BOZO. I know they have to do interviews to keep the NRL and media partners happy, but I'd much prefer not to hear from any of our boys until after the job is done.
That loss was shattering last week feathered friend

Every loss that the Legendary Manly jumper and colours and our proud club endures is a shame and shattering .

After every loss players should front the media on their hands and knees and ask for repentance

Yes. I feel sorry for the players, most of whom are young and inexperienced. They can not answer honestly for fear of actually telling the truth, thus they resort/are instructed to use glib cliches.
Do we ever get any meaningful insights from these interview? I'd say no.
What I would suggest to the marketing team is that they ask us, the fans, to submit questions. They could tell us in advance what players are due to give interviews and give us a deadline to submit a question (one per fan). Then the marketing person could select the more appropriate ones and put them to the player.
I'm sure it would be an improvement over the 'questions' posed by "journalists", and we may even get a laugh or two from the interviews.

Interesting perspective you have there feathered friend

What question would you ask the players after a very dissapointing loss last week ?

I want to repent for not being able to go to all Manly games
If you want to repent, then what are you waiting for? Repent!
Personally I don't think anyone ever needs to repent for not doing something they are unable to do, but up to you :)

I have already repented openly and remorsefully feathered friend

To repent is to acknowledge our wrongs with a deep feeling of conviction and make our selves accountable for our wrongs and right them

Good I hope you have learned your lesson and in future will attend the Manly games that you are unable to attend :)

If repenting for not going to games that I am also currently prohibited from going to results in a win, then consider me repented. Weird concept but happy to run with it.

Um, so lots of supporters feel that you went out with no game plan, is that right, Des just sent you out with no game plan?
