If reports Foran will sign with the Eels because "Manly is a club on the slide" prove to be correct, his signing will be a far greater act of gross disloyalty than that of DCE. DCE had his contract pulled and had every right to sign with another club (and as I've canvassed elsewhere his signing was actively encouraged by the NRL which is unconscionable on their behalf). But if Foran wants to depart because he thinks we're not competitive, this speaks very poorly of him as a man, of his character and also of him as a club man. If you think the club is struggling I'd have thought it's all the more reason to stay and fight for their revival? Not to mention the grass won't be greener where he's going. The Eels' culture is demonstrably awry, hence their lack of success for 30 years. I'm going to think the best of Foran because he does seem to have the interests of the club at heart. But if he does go - he'll go down as one of the greatest pea-hearts and Judas' in the proud history of the club.
