Dear Manly, This has not been a good couple of weeks for the club. The club appears in turmoil, we have lost TWO marquee players, we seem to have agendas flying around everywhere, and there has been a distinct lack of leadership from our new owners and their appointed CEO. However, and in typical manly fashion, we came up with a stirring win on the weekend. For the people who truly get manly, this reinforced what we love about the club. But this is not the time for sentiment, But to build on this groundswell of emotion around this win and make the necessary moves, rather then wait for a moves to be made for us. There is a time to keep your powder dry, and a time to come out all guns blazing. The time is now for the latter, this doesn't mean rash decisions, it means implementing the contingency you surely had in place for this eventuality. It mean announcing that manly are not bound for the cellar, manly will not rebuild as much as replenish, and we will not be extinguished as a force that has punched above its weight since the 70s. The fans are the pumping blood to the clubs beating heart. We need to hear all is well. Not through carefully placed media snippets, not through pie in the sky commercial aspirations. Fans live in the present. Fans thrive on the perpetuation of the manly spirit and fans keep coming back knowing that the custodians of the club, wether it be administrators, owners, players or coaches are at their essence, Fans of manly themselves. Custodians have the grave responsibility to watch over the club for their tenure. Augment the legacy, adapt to the now, and to ensure the future. We fans need to hear we are in good hands. We need to believe in manly as we always have and we need to see some action. We love our club, but we are angry, concerned, perplexed and anxious. It's to this next era we tread with trepidation, we need to know we are in good hands. So what's manly gonna do about it?
