The spin in this article is staggering. Ritchie has turned a good story into a free kick for someone against Darrell Williams. http://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/former-sea-eagles-forwards-mark-bryant-and-josh-perry-will-head-the-manlywarringah-golden-eagles-association/story-fndv31ch-1227045502397 I was in the fans v legends game earlier this year, with Josh Perry allocated as our coach. He said he is an NRL ambassador and said he will be working for manly a bit this year on game day events which would include getting ex players involved (eg in the touch footy game). Also Joe G is involved. There was a totally good feeling about the whole thing, with the manly club staff fully supportive and working on it too. I can't imagine that this would cause any political bad feeling internally because it is a strategy driven by the club. Perhaps this shows just how hard the Tele tries to stir up trouble and push agendas. [hr] Also Beaver is co-patron of the group, and he works for Manly too.
