      One thing I hope they realise is that Manly is the only NRL club representing northern Sydney.

      The ONLY club despite Norths and Florimo trying to clutch at any straw they can.

      The NRL should be bending over backwards to make sure Manly are secure and viable because lose that and they might as well hand the Northern Beaches over to union or soccer.

      You know, part of Super League's vision for Sydney was 4 teams representing the 4 points of the compass. And to that end, they wanted Manly, the Bears were only ever thought of as a backup should we stick with the ARL, which with Arko and Bozo so heavily involved at the time was always going to happen (John Ribot, for all of his faults, was a former Manly boy and did know the score).

      Melbourne seems to cope fairly well with having 9 AFL teams based there so why can't Sydney sustain 9 teams? I guess the big difference is that the AFL actually works with its clubs to make sure they survive. The NRL on the other hand.....

        They also must realise that the only one club that represents the whole Northern Sydney area cant get more than 10,000 members .

        Very poor representation and these substandard numbers are no threat to ladies netball comps let alone union and soccer .

        The fact is the The Bunnies fought back into the NRL not because the size of Redfern but because the size of their membership supporter strength

        The ONLY way to survive relocation is by us Manly supporters being stronger together where it really counts !!!

          The Bunnies fought back due to media, and public pressure.

          Their membership base is over-rated.

            One of mans greatest downfalls is avoiding accountability and blaming others .
            NON Accountability is a useless and ineffective journey to FAILURE .

            Instead of pointing our finger at others
            It is more productive and affective if we pull our own finger out and do something about it our selves !

              Been in a bubble last 2 days so could I pose a question. Why would the NSW Govt provide 20 mil for an excellence centre if we are earmarked for a move? The NSW Govt would have gone to the NRL before announcing the grant.

                I’ve thought about this. I didn’t follow the Northen Eagles because they were half (ick) Norths but if Manly had to be relocated, I could follow the (say) Perth Eagles.

                    Pretty sure the Bronco's will block this.
                    Plus this is being pushed by a News Ltd hack weren't they the ones that started the war which resulted in the second Brisbane team along with teams from Perth and Adelaide being pushed out.

                    Manly fans are down because we having a few lean years.
                    Roosters supporters disappeared a few years ago when they were down the bottom
                    Every team supporters disappear during the lean years, so do we keep moving a team that comes last or second last in supporter numbers through the gate.

                    Next season Perth can gain a team, the following year Darwin, gee in a few years Broken Hill might get a turn.

                    Agreed, absolutely nothing to do with their membership base.

                    100k marched the streets.

                      The way the NRLfunds and promotes the game at all levels, particularly grass roots and the bush, they won't have to worry about it in a few years time.
                      Their neglect will have done the job for them.

                            My best mate is one of six boys. When the bears left he and his 5 brothers all were bought swans memberships by thier old man. They haven’t watched a live game of league since.

                              Mergers don’t work.

                              They don’t work in business !

                              They don’t work in sport!

                                The Super League War - waged by the owners of the DT, Courier Mail and the Broncos - still has a lot to answer for.

                                The fact that we had teams in Perth, the Gold Coast AND South East Queensland before the 1997 split competition, but not after it, is just one of them.

                                But sure, blame the Sydney clubs instead...

                                  It is still about people power . If we all dont get behind our club and support it then we are finished !!!
                                  Why ? Because every one else hates us and they wont give a fck about Marching on the streets to save Manly .
                                  Lets do it !!!
