Des v Manly is set to play out in the Supreme Court.

Des v Manly is set to play out in the Supreme Court.

Manly and Des Hasler are set to go head-to-head in court over his termination almost one year after the Sea Eagles sacked their former coach, following a season that was derailed after the Pride jersey saga.
The Daily Telegraph can reveal civil proceedings Hasler has commenced in the NSW Supreme Court over his treatment at the hands of Manly which are set to get underway on October 20, more than 12 months after he first forecast his intention to sue.
Hasler is seeking compensation after his contract was terminated in October last year with a year to run.
It is understood Manly’s lawyers and Hasler’s legal team had been in regular contact in the hope of settling the matter out-of-court, before those conversations ultimately broke down.

The Sea Eagles then awaited Hasler’s legal action – which was filed in late-August – and sources said they are intent on vigorously defending themselves over their decision to sack the 62-year-old coach.
“The club won’t be taking a backward step and is ready to defend the claim in court,” a Manly spokesman said.
Hasler will be represented by Sydney lawyer Dan McGirr.
Hasler was outspoken about Manly’s handling of the Pride jersey saga, which resulted in seven of the club’s starting side choosing to sit out their round 18 clash with the Sydney Roosters last July.
Josh Aloiai, Toafofoa Sipley, Tolutau Koula, Christian Tuipulotu, Haumole Olakau’atu, Jason Saab and Josh Schuster cited “cultural and religious” reasons for refusing to play in the one-off rainbow jumper.

Hasler publicly apologised to those players and pointed the finger at “poor management” in press conference.
“Sadly, the execution of what was intended to be an extremely important and initiative was poor,” Hasler said.
In the aftermath of that incident the team suffered a seven-match losing streak, taking them from inside the top eight to an 11th place finish at season’s end.
Hasler had been hopeful of triggering an extension to his contract for 2024 with a top-eight finish in 2022 but ultimately found himself sacked, with Anthony Seibold brought in to replace him at Brookvale, in stark contrast to his first stint at the club in which he won a premiership in 2011.
At season’s end Manly chairman Scott Penn announced Hasler’s sacking, saying: “After careful consideration, the board of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles has unanimously decided that, in the best interests of the club, Des Hasler will not be head coach of the club for NRL season 2023.

“Des will always remain an icon of the club and an integral part of the club’s history.”

The former Bulldogs and Sea Eagles coach signed a three-year deal with Gold Coast Titans in July, and is set to formally start at Robina next month.
Hasler’s career includes a history of his coaching relationships ending up in a courtroom.
In 2017 he sued the Bulldogs for $2.4 million just two months after he was booted out of Belmore with two years left on his contract, before the two sides ultimately settled out of court.

Somehow Ritchie Zorba Jr and his offsider failed to mention that Hasler also coached Manly to a 40-0 GF victory in 2008.

Why shouldn’t Des get what he was entitled to?

There is nothing admirable about the way Ballpoint, Gary Wolfman, Gorilla Biscuit Features and co. have dealt with this issue.

Doubt it'll see court, think Des could be angling for another out of court settlement tbh, Lawyers cost money and the type he's hired wont come cheap and always the possibility the case could go into overtime meaning more $'s out of Des's pockets.

Yawn. Des suing again? Who could have seen that coming? Something else for the Titans to look forward to.
Arko's Arse Perspective time ...

Des is Suing again ?
It takes two to tango

Who could have seen that coming ?
Incompetent people that do not plan well ahead and keep making the same mistakes that's who

The Titans can look forward to the reap what they sow

The moral of the story ..
We are all countable for our own actions
and smart people control their own destiny .

Embarrassing Mediocre Manly Management
You think they would have learnt from last time
Mediocre people keep making the same mistakes again
Manly missed the finals on ALL levels this season
Bring Back Arko because the ones in charge are not worthy to wipe Arko's Arse

The dog is a flea ridding scumbag.

He only coaches clubs that have a championship side put together by previous coaches then slowly dismantles that club because he's overated. The dogs are a prime example.
