We’re 16th in kick meters per game, 16th in crowd attendance, 12th in runs per game, 12th in completion rate, 15th in kick meter returns, 4th in penalties conceded, number 4 in sin binnings and number 6 in line breaks conceded. We lead the league in only three categories: number of in goal escapes, number of tries conceded, number of points conceded - where we let in 11.5ppg more than the best defence. Now, none of this is the fault of anyone in particular, nonetheless, this is without a doubt a club in the worst period generation period ever period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest football team in the world, I don't know what the **** you're talking about!... Yosemite? We sure used to be. We stood up when it mattered. We made the finals consistently. We created plays, struck down opposing plays. We waged wars on the entire league, not conceded to it. We sacrificed, we worked for each other, we put our money where our mouths were and signed the best free agents. We built great, talented squads, made uninpenetratable defensive structures, explored the footballing universe, cured missed tackles and we cultivated the world's greatest backs AND the world's greatest forwards. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to greatness, we didn't belittle it. It didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't scare so easy. We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were lead... by great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. Manly is not the greatest team in the NRL anymore, but we sure can be!
