Its really not that bad is it.

We have just run out of players and steam this year. Add in the jersey fiasco and MF and we find ourselves in a hole. So what. It happens.

We need to move on from the boycott. We need to move on from MF. We just need to move on. By bringing up the '7' all we are doing is adding to any perceived fracture.

Look at the cowboys last year. Lost 11 straight. Coach had lost parts of the dressing room. JT on the outer and loads of problems. Fast forward 12 months and life is sweet again.

We will bounce back. We will unite again.
The team needs to focus on resolving their issues, otherwise we are going to face exactly the same problem next year.

Cowboys recruited well , we haven't.
Cowboys found a modern tuned in coach , we haven't.
Cowboys got their Admin, front office and marketing in order, ours is a kindergarten sh*t storm.
Cowboys got a $350mil stadium, we just got shafted by NSW govt again.
We aren't anywhere near their league as a whole club. We're a joke like the Tigers, Titans, Warriors.

What are you saying
You hope he is ok?
Or
You hope he does something else?

I hope it's the first one. Because if it's pretty disrepectful if you meant the later Don was major part of 4 grand finals and two premierships at this club and is one of the best in the business. Worth noting significantly better than the red headed gronk Barrett replaced him with.
It’s a harsh business which is result driven doesn’t matter what he has done for us in the past like des or dce…it’s what they are offering now and for the future and des don and dce shouldn’t be part of our future

We are not going that badly.
We are missing about 8 players inc the turbos who are the heart and soul of the team.

Sharks are very good this year and they also got every bounce of the ball tonight. They put through chips and grubbers and they just bounce up in the bread basket for a try. We put them through and get an a funny bounce everywhere and knock on.

Just had a moment of perspective while on Instagram (I know how stupid that sounds) BUT...... on the Manly Instagram page they had a number of pictures from a fan appreciation day and you know what stood out.

How happy the fans shown were at meeting players that don our great jersey. Jason Saab was there and the fans were just happy to have a picture taken with him. They didn't complain that his carries are apprently week or that he was one of the '7' and that he should be dropped. Paseka the man mountain was a crowd favorite. No one said to him he has no heart or motor ( something mentioned often by some on here).

When you come here to silvertails and see the anger. The vitriol. The down right nasty its easy to forget these people are a small small minority that are afforded a voice on social media. They moan, bitch and curse our players one minute and cheer like crazy people the next all under the guise of being 'real fans'....

Well guess what. those people on the photos are the real fans. Fans who cheer and support regardless of results. Fans that don't personally insult players that even when they loose try.

Reading the game day thread the same bully's were out throwing insults left right and centre. Well folks how about next time you are walking down the corso and you see Gauc or shoe or DCE or Saab or any other of the guys you have the balls to go to up to them and say the things you type here to their face....would love to see how that ends up.

And who would you recommend to take us into the future? A rookie coach, a rookie 1/2 & a rookie conditioning coach? Not many coaches out there with De's record mate! We tired the 'next big thing coach' in Barrett & how did that turn out? We have the coach & the squad to be Top 8 everyday of the week....a little tweaking & we will be fine in the future. Without the distractions & injuries we copped this year we would be OK. I think our problem stems from the top.....not coach & players.

Mick, titans beat us, signed our 6 and added a good 9 who was a manly junior. They might argue they are ahead of us. Haha

If , and that’s an IF, not a there is , a non fixable divide between players I’d expect a number to either request a release or be forced into a release.

@mickqld already reckons 3 have requested an early release , if true the purge has begun.

The Turbo’s and DCE won’t accept this **** beyond season 2022.

The club will heal , they are professionals , yes it’s crap right now but for every reaction there’s always an equal and opposite reaction.

Yes we are down , but yes we’ll be up again.
