    Just announced on Ch 7 news that Mayer has been voted out effective next week.  They said that he wants to join Parramatta immediately. 

    Time for Max and the rest of the boards to **** off now as we are going to regret this.

    If he wants to join parramatta immediately, he obviously already had the job lined up so I don't know if I would be calling it a sacking. I wouldn't be surprised if he asked for a release

    Mayer sacked as boardroom turmoil returns to Manly

    Rugbyleaguelive.com

    The boardroom bloodletting has returned at Manly with news the man who helped engineer the Sea Eagles' 2008 premiership triumph, chief executive Grant Mayer, has been sacked.

    The Manly boss will leave his job at the end of next week, after the faction that holds the balance of power on the Sea Eagles divided board voted 5 to 2 to get rid of Mayer.

    The Seven Network reports that Mayer wants to exit the club immediately, but the club has implored him to stay on in the position until the the end of next week in order to stay out of the media spotlight until after Manly's clash with the Titans on Sunday.

    "I think if anybody isn't happy in a position, to try and hold them there is a backward step," Sea Eagles co-owner Max Delmege told Seven.

    It's believed Mayer has his sights set on the Parramatta CEO's position, but Sea Eagles chairman is reportedly keen for him to stay on, despite the vote to dismiss him.

    "I think the Penn's or any other board member, would go with the decision of the board," said Delmege.

    The political in-fighting initially prompted Mayer to offer his resignation in April, after it became apparent the majority of the board didn't want him in the role beyond this season.

    A peace deal was seemingly brokered to keep Mayer in the role, but has since broken down.

    Grant Mayer releases a statement
    Friday, May 22, 2009

    Manly CEO Grant Mayer issued the following statement today after reports appeared in the media about his sacking.

    “I have not resigned nor have I been sacked. I have stated for the record that I have no intention of leaving the team, staff, sponsors or members in the lurch.”

    “I have never spoken to Parramatta and was totally and utterly focused on staying at Manly after the board gave a clear instruction to produce a 3 year business plan which would see my tenure extended.”

    “These media reports are exceptionally destabilising and I question why they have surfaced 2 days out from an exceptionally important game against the Titans.”

    Go Manly

    Looks like Aaron is in the bad books with some members as well.

    The only substance Channel 7 come up with for their story is Max Delmege.  Do the maths.

      sgt is not a board member.  He's a broken down old hack that gets his sense of significance from hanging around the dressing sheds under the stadium, making a nuisance of himself.

    Kind of ironic he's making a pitch to run the website.  Let's go back to the bad old days of the clubby little clique run by the illiterate sgt and pacman.
