Beneath all the hysteria on these boards today the truth has been lost. Des Hasler is a man of the highest integrity and thereâ€™s no way he would sell out to the highest bidder there is much more to this story than meets the eye and as fans and members you should all have an open mind until the truth is revealed and it will be revealed. David Perry has also been on the receiving end of salvos from many on here and on other internet forums today be assured he is not the villain at all. The Sydney Morning Herald were spot on the deal for Des to remain at Manly was a done over a handshake Scott Penn and our CEO had done a fantastic job to retain Des before an insignificant 3rd party chimed in at the 11th hour wanting to places conditions and restrictions on Des. This is the same 3rd party that wanted to place Key Performance Indicators on Hasler in 2009 so you can join the dots. To put it bluntly that was the straw that broke the camelâ€™s back and he is gone probably with most of his support staff. The football club and their mouth pieces on here will lead you to believe that he has taken more money and left the building donâ€™t be naive and believe that rhetoric because thatâ€™s all it is rhetoric from people who are trying to cling to the false power they believe they have. It is a miracle that Des has achieved what he has at Manly with all the political argy bargy and one-upmanship that has been played out in the board room the man is only human and enough is enough for him as of now I guess. So as fans/members you can stop this all at the Football Club AGM and remove this current board in one swift blow. Iâ€™m not sure of the make of the rebel ticket but I am as sure it will be a better option than what we have now and Iâ€™m sure as sure it will end this political power struggle forever.
