As a solid Seaeagles supporter of over 35 years theres 1 thing I have learned that always rings true. This club thrives on adversity & always overcomes any crap thrown at it. The mentallity runs through the club & across to the fans as many mates of mine have supported 1,2 hell even 5 different teams & I am yet to meet a Manly supporter who has jumped ship in even the darkest hours - its not part of the clubs culture.... As for any players who lose this culture in this time - they stand out like dogs balls & regardless of their talent - once they go down that path they are transparent & rightfully replaced The Manly side moves on & new stars are born. Yes theres been every player linked to the club - this sells papers Yes theres stars in their final years - Snake, Lyon ....but waiting in the wing are the Trjobovic, Gutherson, Pearsall types ready to proudly continue tradition. Not simply trying to do a feel good thread & I do recognise theres some decent hurdles to jump, just in my time as a Seaeagles fan have seen far largers hurdles & have not yet seen this great club crumble. Whoever we sign Whoever stays Manly will continue to be 1 of the great clubs today & in the future Keep the faith Silvertails, enjoy the banter & opposition fans & media bashings - its because they envy the club. If this stops theres no doubt they no longer fear us & this will be a sad day.
