From a cursory glance at the list of Manly players I have found that since 2000 we have had some 127 players debut for Manly FG .. and only 11 of those could be considered local juniors. (And 3 of those are currently playing at other clubs, Guthbo, Hoppa and Oldfield. I didn't do figures for players that came from elsewhere and spent a couple of years in our 20's. Probably 10 or so?) Anyway, that is 8.7% of the total players debuted are locals . Or in other words, 91.3% of all our players since 2000 have been imported from the dark side. Given this history, and the fact that imports have contributed over 90% of the people creating our culture I thought by now, we would be more welcoming and appreciative of imports. This mantra of you have to be Manly to understand is codswallop.
