Why would a Virgin be inspired by Kelly Penn and Toovey in a Brothel makes no sense.Meh, I'm just not going to bother anymore. People got pissed of with ME for offering my season ticket as a gift, because I've become dissollusioned. The contents in this email are the reasons why. I hope people understand that.
It's as though they are honestly attempting to get us out of Brooky, and into another stadium. No wonder the players are not committed. I don't think Kelly / Penn / Toovey and their cronies could inspire a virgin in a brothel.
Bulldogs and South's playing away from Belmore and Redfern ?The way things are going to Penns will be facing a huge loss this year and will tell everyone they have no choice but to take an offer from say ANZ stadium who pay $100k a game compared to having to pay Warringah council hundreds of thousands of dollars to play at Brookie each year.
A no brainer for people who are only in the game for the money.
Well done on trying, but I am astounded ANZ even entertained the prospect of sponsoring Manly. I just can't see how it ties in to our Super Regional Strategy, let alone where a sponsorship of MWSE would fit in with their segment strategy. It just doesn't seem to align to their existing Australian sponsorship portfolio, you would have thought they would look at AFL over NRL should they consider heading down that path.I wrote to Joke Elly twice now, and have been completely ignored. I actually introduced a potential major sponsor to Pat Wilson those years ago (NAB). He couldn't sell it, so NAB went with Souths.
Without a major sponsor, I attempted to get ANZ in touch with Kelly and his team, but the first time, I received that pre-populated e-mail, and the second attempt, I was completely ignored. The head of ANZ marketing then told me not to bother.
Also, Grant Mayer was the reason I got off my arse to create that actual manual petition, where we got people at the ground, clubs, pubs, everyone to help, and got 10k odd signatures, that Mayer, Gallop and Annersely provided to Morris Iemma just before we got 10 mill in funding (don't know where that went).
I don't get it.
Some CEO's inspire buy-in and loyalty. Others make you want to tear up your membership. Kelly is an A-grade shocker - sorry - both on and off the field.

so you are saying ANZ was keen on this? Seriously who from marketing were you dealing with? Had you spoken to or even engaged with our head of sponsorships? I still just can't see how Manly could have sold themselves to ANZ as major sponsor material - maybe, just maybe the people at MWSE knew this.People said the same thing about NAB, but I got them in front of Pat Wilson, who basically sold it on what NAB could do for the club, and nothing else.
Two months later, NAB signed up with South Sydney.
I make the introductions. Up to the club to sell their brand. In this case, The Sea Eagles must be above major corporate sponsorship.
I don't know how many times I can repeat this but unless they get unanimous support for a change of ground from the football club they can't do it. The preference vote enshrines that. They can only take 2 games a year unless they have to move for the purposes of redevelopment. Also WHY would they invest in a junior program with Bozo if they were moving to SFS or ANZ when they know we won't travel. They're clearly trying to keep kids involved in footy which hasn't been done in years on the beaches.Any move to any other ground would go like this. Rnd 1- 10,000. Rnd 4- 8,000. Rnd 8- 6,021. Rnd 26- mad Monday. November- off season deal to Brisbane for an undisclosed sum to the Penns. Come on guys. Bunker down at the fortress and fight. Who's with me? I'll bring a slab.
please read my above comment. They can't do it. Unless somehow the football club lost their preference vote and I have no idea how that could happen then we're here to stay. Financially it could be a good move if stuff was being done to brookie to take the cash while we couldn't play thereMoving from Brookie would mean our membership base would fall 50%, I believe. I'd certainly not renew my membership. So, financially it may seem to help our owners to play out of a stadium which pays the club, but this initial windfall would be more than offset by the fall in revenue from membership renewals.
It's a dumb idea on every level, except, for the TV networks who would save money by not having to set up at a suburban ground. It would almost certainly spell the end for Manly as a standalone entity because fan support would be minimal. The NRL would probably try to merge Manly with Balmain & Wests, (along with Cronulla and St George & Illawarra). Thus the sport would lose the interest of the northern half of Sydney, and continue its decline.
It really is a horrible fate to contemplate.
