    Manly Council have today released a statement extending the "Sea Eagles" lease of Brookvale Oval for one year rent free.

    Council spokesman said that this is a direct response to Manly obtaining a $20-$30 million dollar upgrade to a property they own.

    "We the council, will own the new stand and all improved facilities, and they will cost us nothing"

    "It is the least we could do, the funds were only given because Manly play there, it's a win/win for both the council and the Sea eagles"

      So, the Council will own the stand? I guess its new name will be: The Amalgamation Stand. I think that ties in perfectly with the club's slogan: Stronger Together!

          Just a thought, what if the council gets the re-build, flicks Manly and gives the new lease to Rugby?

              The traditional owners of the land.
              No, not we Hillites.
              The tribe who are always acknowledged before a major sporting event.

                  Sea Eagles pay around $300,000 a year rent, Rugby won't be able to pay even $20,000, so why would they give us the flick?

                    It is not that they will, it is that they could that irks me. The only reason they are getting brand new facilities is because of Manly, but Manly has no guarantee of tenure.

                    There are some strange people attracted to the council, and many of them don't like noisy football games, some would prefer to see Brookie bulldozed and share gardens installed.

                      Now that investment $ is coming their way, the council seem to be more appreciative of what Manly bring to their district. I still resent them for their outrageous fee hire over the years.

                                  A token gesture, at least it will help toward breaking even in 017.
