    Absolute no-show at the club tonight.

    Perhaps he was there, but no-one saw him enter or leave the club, and even though Kitey has working the mic and calling for him he didn't show.

    Shows Georgie is genuinely sad to leaving Manly. Thanks for your contribution.

      i was pi55ed off at ch9, after they interviewed foz at the end of the game as joey finished you could hear someone say george's name as if they were about to talk to him. then the commentators came over the top & we missed the chance to hear what he had to say.

      I will miss the big fella. That tackle on our line last night was gold. Thanks for the memories Georgie.

      Manly Forever.

        It was disappointing he didn't come bck to the club last night. It would be the last time we'd see him. Sad or not, we wanted to hear from the big man and show him our admiration.

        Very disappointing end to a great stint at our club.

        My thoughts are maybe it was all too emotional for him. Behind the jokes is a sensitive guy. It is a shame he is going. kite was pushed out but landed a big contract with Penrith. I doubt George would be asking for too much money and i think that is what is hurting him.

        No one has mentioned that tackle he made. My word, was amazing.

          Georgie was also a no-show at Diggers. People can say that it's easier for Kite based on the deal at Penrith etc, but talking to him was really emotional. He is not happy about leaving and does not want to go at all.

          he was staying off the piss so he could play in the Koori Knockout in Newcastle the next day, but i think his team was knocked out already?

          Doesn't matter about Koori knock outs,staying off the booze,sad,whatever...the fans pay good $$ all year,and expect (rightly so) to see their stars at the club after the game.What would happen if all the fans got emotional,and stayed away from the games/the club/the memberships/the factory outlet? Membership etc would be bleating like sheep to get us back!!

          Please ayjay .... lets hear George's side of the story first. He's been great with his time for the entire year and a favourite of all. He's only human.

            People deal with things in different ways, and it would be heartbreaking for the guys after a loss. I remember seeing Mark Carroll outside of the Leagues Club after the 97' GF, and he was absolutely distraught. He didn't want to go into the Club and kept turning around to walk away, but his wife convinced him to go in after about 10 minutes.

              Yeah, when he made that tackle I thought it might be a defining moment of the match, stopping their momentum and strengthening our resolve. It was inspirational. But we let them waltz over untouched for a try the very next play.

              Thanks for the memories, George. I will continue to follow his career and hold him in the greatest respect. Ditto Brent Kite (and Wolfman if he leaves).
