In keeping with the thread about wearing Manly gear in the off season. I just got back from 2 week road trip. 3 days in Coffs Harbour - walked into a bar with a jersey on and had 6 people give me a high five, went back to the resort - there was a table of 5 people all wearing caps. Drive up to Mermaid Beach in QLD, either side of my room were Manly supporters, also can I say I never new the merchandising went to bikini's, went to the pool and this very nice 35 year old was wearing one? It was awesome. The lady queried why I was starring at her but I got away with it by saying I was shocked by the bikini? Got away with that one! Hope your not on this site... Caught up with my son and got talked into going to a BBL Heat cricket match and got the mandatory boo but also had 15 - 20 high fives. Then went to Royal Pines and on Friday 16 guys all playing golf, all had Manly gear on as well. So that proves that Manly Fans do wear gear in the off season.
