    The ticket, food, drink and dressing room-access gravy train is over for the no-name directors of the Manly District Football Club.

    For the best part of seven years the football club, which has about 500 members, has controlled the boardroom of the Sea Eagles because it held two vital votes.

    And it made no secret of the fact it was intent on shutting out the major shareholders, the Penn family.

    Together with minor shareholder Quantum they removed the company secretary, backed a no-confidence vote in chairman Scott Penn and wiped $20,000 off the termination payout to one of their own life members in Peter "Zorba" Peters because he called Quantum boss Phil Sidney a "garden gnome".

    Well, the two votes now mean zilch thanks to the Penns' recent 90 per cent takeover of the Sea Eagles.

    The District Football Club will retain two votes against five for the Penns. Suffice to say times will change dramatically now the district football club is only consulted on colours, home ground and club name.

    A big winner in the takeover by the Penns will be the Manly Leagues Club, virtually shunned by the football club/Quantum alliance because it dared to ban former chairman Bob Reilly.

    A few years remain on the ban and the players will return to their historical home after matches. It appears, at long last, a knockout victory has ended the war at Manly.

      It's my understanding the players have been going back to the Leagues Club after every day game. Not sure what weidler is on about there. Maybe i'm wrong but i'm sure they always announced it at the game. They didn't go back after night games which is understandable.

      As for the Leagues Club. Since Penn bought it and built his fitness centre up, the club looks so small. I feel claustrophobic going in there now. I'd be surprised if it keeps trading as it just looks so sad and small now. I go in and have a meal before most games and that's about all you can do apart from a dabble on the pokies. I know the signing session for the last game was a bit of a shamozzle as there was just no room for it.

      I'm not even sure if there is still anything upstairs. Is there an auditorium anymore? If there was, i'd imagine they would've used it for the signing session.

      I hope Penn does something to build the club up from what it is at the moment. It just won't last otherwise.

          I always go to the club when I come down for a game but it's pretty sad really, I also can't see it remaining as it is.

          Also unsure why Weedler would mention this as for the two games I came down for in 2014 the players came in for a signing session both times .

            Zorba gives Weilder these stories.

            The war is over perhaps but there's still time to stick your enemy's heads on spikes outside the castle gates.

                  Penn's get the treatment

                  It is quite comical watching some Manly officials who backed the wrong horse squirm. Those that were anti the-Penn family for years have suddenly changed their ways.

                  "You should see them sucking up now," said one official. "It's sickening."

                  Those near and dear to the Penns are now being treated like royalty at Brookvale.

                  Safe to say though the Penns have long memories.

                  sportal and lurker articles should come with disclaimers.

                  Not tookey though!

                  Gee, it's not hard to guess who the 'official' is that leaked the story.
