    Online news sept 2050

    in Response to manly signing A 30 yo newcastle prop and a utility from the perth team , manly fans are up in arms regarding recruitment. Its a travesty when we let go of a kiwi junior like hiku and a local junior like gutho to sign players in different positions 35 years on.

    Our club is a mess

      Yes, recruitment mistakes and not just the playing staff, coaching mistakes and probably many others we don't hear about:

        If gutho and hiku comeback and are still playing for us in 2050 it might be time to let them go again.

            . . . in a well-orchestrated media event, Zorba Peters celebrated his 100th birthday, outliving the club he destroyed.
            He was surrounded by Penn friends, and a bevy of security guards, as he was wheeled into Brookvale Park, once a fortress and now a burial ground, to select a plot next to his mentor Bozo Fulton.
            Some ageing fans of the former Manly Sea Eagles heckled the 300kg blob, still angry at the demise of the once great club, which drew a typical defiant reaction from the 'great man': "Let them eat cake!....that is, if there is any left over when I'm finished with it."

              That's the beauty of this post, you can experience the future from the comfort of 2016. Sure we may be dead, however I'm sure the post is spot on.

              I'm picturing a Davros-like figure, a head being kept alive by machines. Still with a weekend gig on 2ky

              This very entertaining video below is the history of the Manly Club. The Penn's took control at around the 8 second mark.

                In other news MFB is celebrating both his 95th birthday and his 42nd straight year posting on Silvertails, now with a post count of almost one million he's still " living the dream".

                MFB is now the patron of the Silvertails founded by @Dan who is now retired and living in luxury in the Dutch Antilles after selling Silvertails to Google for 480 Million USD.

                And in very recent news Dan has purchased Brookvale Oval and exhumed anyone from " the dark side" who was buried there and offered plots instead to Silvertailers , with a special deal for MFB and @nightster (and a few other grumpy old bastards)for the very considerate sum of $1.

                Mind you with modern medicine MFB and @nightster are hopeful of staying in the Playboy Mansion and keeping all the girls very happy well past their 100th year so won't be taking up that offer any time soon!
