    I see one of the matters to be voted upon at the AGM is life membership for Brent.

    About time he got some well earned recognition of Te highest order at this club.

    I always felt he was the real forwards captain above King myself.

      An absolute no brainer. Well done Kitey! Notice how players of class like Kitey don't slag off their former clubs? That's why they are loved.

        Would have been great to find some role for him at the club, especially with the forwards

          Kitey you legend! Very deserving. Him on stage winning the Clive Churchill in '08 is a fave memory of mine, and the try he scored.

              The way the players talked (even before Kingy was captain) King was the forwards captain with Kitey.

              Both are deserving of life membership and had a lot to do with our success

                Both legends. King was always very open. I remember at a sponsor function, back in the Torrens, Donald, NBQ days, that he said the team was playing as a group of individuals, and that Des was trying to instill a new culture of a united machine.

                Very open and honest. Upfrant as well.

                Give him life membership.

                Surely Brett, Gift, Jamie Lyon and Skivy are not far behind

                  I think you have to play 200 first grade games and gift was in the 180 range

                    Honourary Life Member then?

                    For the record, Gifty played 185 games for Manly between 2003-2014.

                      Everyone in the 08 side should be given life membership except that gronk playing for Parramatta.

                        Got my vote, and one of the nicest, funniest blokes you can meet.
                        Needs to be a life member just to have him around the club.

                              Mmmmm, can't say i'd object to Glenn coming back.

                              One reason because he deserves his 200 games, another to let him finish his career the way he should and most importantly to instill the Manly culture into the forwards that has been so often spoken about.

                              With Kitey, King, Watmough and Ballin gone from our pack, I believe Glenn would help with not only getting into the new guys about the Manly way but also how to play tough and play injured and play long minutes under duress.

                              I'd love to have him back. Plus he wouldn't command the dollars he once did.

                                    Big Yes for Kitey. So seeing we have poached half of penriff anyway can we have him back as a club ambassador.
