I agree which is why I said regardless of outcome and whatever he gets.
Just very disappointing that a young man with so much promise has effectively destroyed his life by some poor decisions.
Do you recall 4 or 5 years back the gang signs in photos debate was a hot one. MF was a complete gang banger at that point and obviously little changed. So much talent and the chance to make a difference to his life and the lives around him.
Regardless of outcome he will never attain the heights he could have so he's the real looser out of all this.
I have some cousins from my dads 14 brothers and sisters who let's just say would give MF a run for his money in the stupidity race. They have done some pretty low and heinous acts and yet always blame those around them for their predicament. Their parents were OK people if not a bit simple and they simply CHOSE the path to follow.Just as MF has.

Well said mate. In every aspect.

Right or wrong, he's putting himself into situations that affect not only himself, but the community around him (releasing a young girls private nudes, making comments & supporting John Hopoate abusing the club on social media, the gang crap, now being involved in this very serious situation).

I'm done considering him in our footy team. Not because I'm being an arsehole, but primarily because I want the kid to take time away, get the help he needs, and FFS start hanging around with different people (this group of players refusing to take the field in my view aren't a good influence on him either).

He needs intervention. Someone with an ethical and moral compass that can steer him in the right direction, for not only his well being, but everyone he's associated with.

We need class and character at our club right now. I'm talking the Jamie Lyon, Steve Menzies, Jake Trbojevic types - grounded, no frills, take it as you see it, genuine good people.

I wish Manase the best. Really, really sad waste of someone's talents and life.

I wonder if they are leaving it to see if Manase gets off then nobody goes to jail from his group, but if Manase is found guilty then Big Buck will come forward and confess to ensure Manase doesn't go down for it. In saying that, the whole thing is dodgy AF and Manase needs to cop himself on.

The jury will decide that ,after the evidence from both sides of which there is more to come especially from the defence.whats on these posts is all just trying to read the tea leaves from the scraps of information we get from the reporting
He is young and has made lots of bad decisions (let's hope stabbing isn't one of the,)but still at this point should be given the presumption of innocence
If he is found innocent let's hope he makes better choices in the future and repays the faith shown in him by the likes of Des and the club and its supporters
If he is guilty then that will take care of itself
He's guilty isn't he...

Mine actually took 4 months to heal, but it was a really bad accident.

It’ll depend on what you are having done
Yep - I tore two of the 4 rotator cuff muscles completely off the bone in my left shoulder playing Masters.... putting hits on at 50 something lol about 4 years ago. I decided against surgery and rehabbed it myself (the risks involved with surgery failing and the chances of re-tearing after surgery meant that about 25% of people undergoing surgery end up having significant issues) ... no way two weeks after the incident could I do anything with that shoulder apart from maybe lifting a t-spoon. It took me 6 months to build all the other muscles around the shoulder to now take the load of the two missing rotator cuff muscles given... once they were torn off the bone and no surgery they stay torn off and are just floating in my shoulder. My left shoulder now is probably stronger than the my dominant right purely because of all the gym work I put into it. I can only assume how bad it would be though two weeks after surgery.... no effing way you would be able to do anything. I was told it was a 12 month recovery from surgery with intensive rehab and you had to sleep upright in a lounge chair for 6 weeks! I am glad I decided not to get surgery.

Next time I don't want the wife see me do something stupid im putting a white towel on my head ...

Seriously, ffs, is that the momentum swinger on this case, its the equivalent of Waqa Blakes try on friday night..

Who knows what the towel motive is? As an NRL player, it would have been a bad look to have any association at all with the fight, so maybe it was clumsy attempt to hide his identity?

someone in a previous post said that some Mormans etc don't take so much as a panadol ,that may explain it ,maybe i don 't know ? .If he was trying to hide his face why not hide everyone's face ,and what about hiding your face on the way back ? I think we all know that he is not the brightest button on the blouse but if his intent was to conceal himself he didn't really do much of a job.
As you say it doesn't mean he is guilty, and none of us know anyway but to have the credible faith of Des and the club along with his defence in Cunneen gives me hope that he is innocent .
We will find out one way or another shortly

Does anyone know how much the contract is manly have promised him if he's not guilty. Verrels from the roosters is supposed to be going to the titans. He's a manly junior and would be a great addition. I think we need a 1st string hooker with croker being a perfect number 14 to replace walker

He's definitely proven himself to be an absolute dickhead of the highest order through this admittance alone. What self respecting homeboy wannabe is going to wrap a towel around his head, and then not try to disguise his sling? MF is losing his gangsta cred everytime he opens his mouth. Why is his legal team allowing him to put his case in jeopardy? I mean we knew he wasn't particularly smart, but this type of stupidity is next level. Geez we can pick them all right.

Welp even if he does get convicted this season is tanked anyway so maybe we'll have some time to get a half decent 9 or at least someone who can be on the bench as an impact 9 to sub with Croker.

I was a lot more enthusiastic about his potential return when I thought it could help us come finals time, but that's a pipe dream at this stage.

In this case there may be a big gap between being found not guilty and being innocent.
 
In for the long haul.

Question for the legal people ... does the defendant have the right not to take the stand or is that just on the telly?
